We chose this place in Alturas because there were not a lot of picks. Nothing negative its just a small town. As it turns out this was a good choice. A nice room that looks like they have tried to keep updated. Very clean, with all the amenities, fridge, microwave, hair dryer, free wifi. Next to the highway but it...

This is an older motel located on the main street of a truck route. Very popular with working people as there is no other accommodation nearby. We checked in early evening and then went to dinner. When we returned most of the narrow parking spaces were taken up by large work trucks. We parked some distance away to avoid the...

I am so sorry to hear that you will be changing your route because of the noise level at the hotel. We do have upstairs rooms that are pet friendly to help with that noise that caused you not to sleep well. We hope that you will give us another try on one of your trips. Thanks

One of the less satisfactory Best Western hotels I've stayed in. First floor rooms are noisy and rooms are dated and not as clean as other hotels in the chain. Check-in was slow. I recommend avoiding Alturas altogether.

Thank you for your review, I am sorry you felt that the hotel was less satisfactory of the hotels you have stayed at. The first floor rooms can be noisy if you have a guest over the top of you but most hotels are like that. I see that you stayed in one of our newly remodeled rooms. The walls...

We spent one night here on our way home from Southern California. Very clean rooms and updated. Pets are welcome and we were allowed to have our dog in the room for $15 extra which I thought was reasonable. We also got a great deal booking our room through TripAdvisor. Great breakfast included : waffle bar, cereal, bagels, muffins, danish,...

The hotel is an older hotel, but it has been cleaned up very nice. The front desk clerk was very helpful and would recommend this hotel to friends and family. Walking distance to restaurants and had a nice breakfast in the morning. Easy to get off and on I-5.

There are not many choices in Alturas. This Best Western is clean with free breakfast and Wi-Fi. The rooms are smaller than the usual Best Western but it has everything you need including a small refrigerator.

There are 2 chain hotels in this town, and Best Western is the better choice by far - I have stayed at both. There are several mom and pop hotels; I cannot speak to them, but most look run down. The staff here is very friendly, considerate and helpful. The rooms are nice, and furnished with some quality in mind.....

There is absolutely no place like home. And when you're away from home you'll always find an alternative that's closest to it and at Best Western Trailside I always have a pleasant and comfortable stay. I would recommend this place for those people who wishes to visit this part of town in California.

This hotel would be a nice oasis if only they cared a bit more about delivering a quality product. I'd like to see them improve the customer experience by providing better quality pillows. They need to revamp their breakfast room - better food, but even more importantly, giving their guests some room to enjoy it! I can't tell you how...
