Easy to get reservation. Took our dog but we had to pay extra for him.
Old fashioned floral bedspread. The lighting was inconvenient. Only 1 nightstand and no light on that side.
We knew in advance of our arrival that this facility doesn't offer a breakfast. As a result, we were prepared, so it wasn't an issue for us. This is a 50's-style motel offering basic services - a quiet, comfortable and clean place to spend the night in Alturas, a small town on the eastern face of the Northern Sierra Nevada Mountains, a close drive to the Oregon state line. We were headed for The Palouse, an interesting agricultural area near Pullman, WA, the next day after leaving the San Francisco Bay Area in the middle of the afternoon, a 5- to 6-hour drive. Arriving in the early evening, we were warmly greeted by the entire owner-family in a down-home sort of fashion - very friendly folks. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We had a couple of good laughs. After a bit of chit-chat, and after a quick check for bedbugs,* we settled into our room for the night, which was spent restfully. After a quick breakfast out of our cooler and boxed items, with the benefit of tea by utilizing the microwave in the room, we were off on our adventure again, renewed for the day ahead. There were no surprises - we received exactly what we expected and would likely return again. (We cannot say THAT about several other lodging facilities at which we stayed.) *This should NOT be taken as any reflection on this lodging facility. We ALWAYS check EVERY lodging facility for bedbugs, whether a relatively simple motel or an upscale hotel. Hilton, Intercontinental, Best Western or 'mom & pop' facilities, we just make it a practice to check 'em all. The reality is, EVERY lodging facility runs the risk that someone will bring them along in their suitcase. There are two types of hotel/motel facilities - Those that HAVE dealt with bedbugs and those what are GOING TO deal with bedbugs. If you don't know how to do this basic check - - you should learn! (Consult "Mr. Google" about how to perform this easy procedure.
This shouldn't be considered a complaint of The Hacienda. We liked it. We live in California. We know lodging facilities are costly in the state. The demand is so high and the operating costs are such that any hotel/motel will be comparatively expensive with respect to other regions of the U.S. Our trip took us across the northern tier, all the through Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin, and then through Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada to finally end up back in California. We encountered lodging facilities ranging from motels such as The Hacienda, B&Bs, mid-scale hotels such as Hilton, Best Western, Marriott, Comfort Inn, several "recycled" Holiday Inns/Howard Johnsons run by families of certain ethnicities (the truth!), one that turned out to be managed by a so-called "Christian-inspired group," national park facilities managed by Xantera and (our favorite) a GrandStay Suites hotel in Eau Claire, WI that we'd go back to in a FLASH. Prices varied wildly depending on location and features. The reason I bring this up is that the cost for a huge 2-room suite with all-new furnishings and a full kitchen, an office area, Jacuzzi AND a shower over tub, large closet and many other creature comforts including a king bed was almost identical to the Hacienda. (The aforementioned GrandStay Suites in Eau Claire.) Of course, the experience was different, however we were warmly welcomed and made to feel our comfort was important to every member of the staff. - - ALL for $79 + minimal tax. Now, that's not to detract from my positive comments - - it IS, however a statement of what can be available at similar pricing in differing locations. (Truth be told, we paid Xantera over $210/night + significant tax for a queen room at Lake Lodge in Yellowstone for about what The Hacienda offers.) In our opinion, the pricing structure of lodging throughout the U.S.
I loved how the maid went out of her way to be sure to have my coffee everyday!! 10 out of 10- Bed was old but our room was the cleanest room we have ever slept in! In all of our years of traveling!!! 18 years to find a maid that had our blankets so clean and the linen was so fresh!!!
Very comfortable and quiet... Older motel but clean...
I was comfy and thats more than i can say about more expensive motels in this particular town...
Basic Motel with large rooms. Good shower. On short notice the owner let us cancel a second room we have initially booked.
Everything fine considering the rate.
