Escondido, California
Reviewed 13 August 2016

A good overnight. Very nice for the price. Clean and quiet, and pet friendly. Host was very congenial. They also cater to those with horses. This is not a 5* hotel nor do they even come close but rooms are comparable to a La Quinta , or host hotel, only with a more homey decor.

This property is a very well kept motel. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and the people are helpful. We have stayed here in the past and we will stay here again in the future. I would recommend this to everyone.

This is a great place. Pride in ownership really shows. Not only is it the best rate in alturas, our room was very clean. The grounds are well kept, with lots of grass and some shade trees. Bonus: The motel is on a well so the water isn't super chlorinated like most hotels.

The Rim Rock is always a clean and nice place to stay in Alturas. We come down almost every year to visit family and friends in the area and always stay there. The scenery is excellent and there's always the chance to see wildlife (in summer) as we saw deer roaming through almost every night.

A real find! Along Hgwy 395 but around the bend from Alturas' main drag. Single story old style motel, but very up-to-date. Grounds are meticulously kept. Plenty of grass for our little dog's comfort. Outside seating in a park like grassy area to enjoy morning or evening fresh air. Has accommodations for horses, trailer parking, corals. Interior of room very...

Stayed one night in this motel for sleeping only (no breakfast offered). Reception staff was friendly and fast and gave us a room as far as possible from the traffic noise. The room must have known better times but was clean and quiet. The price was about right and the motel suffices for those who look for nothing more but...

Needed a place to sleep for one night. A friend recommended this place and it was great. I did not have reservations but since it was a weekday I thought I would take my chances. Staff was very accommodating and was able to get me a room. This place is a old hotel but very clean. The place can accommodate...

It is hard to beat a comfortable, cozy, quiet room for under $80 per night. The rooms are clean, the internet signal adequate to great (sepending on time of day), has Frig and Microwave, and servicable coffee.

We like supporting family owned businesses as often as we can and it's hard for us to leave a 3 star rating for Rim Rock. First of all, its location is not too bad, it's about a 20 minute walk from downtown Alturas. It has lovely grounds with a grill and area for your horses. And you can play horseshoe...

having recently stayed here from Australia we enjoyed the atmosphere of this motel/RV park. The surrounding mountains looked great and a visit to the lake and ride to the top of the mountain was well worth the trip. This is a hidden part of USA but I would recommend a visit as the scenery is close to equivalent of better...
