Our visit was August 24, 2007, Room 2
We aren't much for fancy, glitzy, mint patty-on-the-pillow, and, naturally, expensive, motels. We seek cleanliness, friendly staff, quiet, comfort, proximity to restaurants, and good value. The Essex certainly provided all the above. In addition, the in-room coffee brewer, fridge, and microwave oven were appreciated.
We don't get through Alturas often but we'll happily stay in the Essex when we do.
I like this place very much. It is quiet, the owners are the salt of the earth and it is right in town. I have stayed at most Alturas motels and this is my favorite.
It will not be the favorite of all because my tastes are just a little different but If you like quiet & convenience this is the place !!!
Centered in the history of the American West with old stone buildings and gold mines;near some good outdoor Western fun.
