“Gateway to the Lassen Volcano NP.”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

We like the Best Western brand. Each hotel/motel is individually owned and managed so you do not get the sameness associated with most hotel chains. So, on our three-week family tour of California we booked BW properties for most of our nights. BW Rose Quartz Inn was on our path as we travelled north from the Lake Tahoe area and it was located close to the gateway to the Lassen Volcano NP ( which for me, was the most beautiful place seen during our 3,000 mile trip ) our next destination.
The Rose Quartz Inn was one of the most expensive BW properties we stayed in during our tour. Yet, there was nothing particularly special about it. Rooms were comfortable and adequate. Buffet breakfast was the usual American fare....not too exciting. There was no pool. The lady at reception ( who may have been the Manager ) was welcoming and informative directing us to a mine of information on hiking and walks in the area including Lassen Volcano NP where we were heading.

The staff at the hotel was knowledgeable and solicitous. Although the hotel was fully booked Labor Day weekend, everyone still took time to make sure that every customer was taken care of. Information about each local attraction was printed on a large sheet of paper and arranged in a large rack for customers to take.
The location is excellent for visiting Boiling Springs Lake and Terminal Geyser. I would have liked to have stayed another day. A large grocery store is across the street. The hotel serves a plentiful breakfast including eggs, bagels, waffles, cereal, bread, orange juice, and fruit.
The rooms were very spacious and included a refrigerator and microwave.

Room Tip: If you want to sleep in, don't choose the room directly above the breakfast room.

I guess the only reason to stay in Chester, a very small town, is because you are visiting Lassen Volcanic National Park. This hotel is about 17 miles from the park but the alternatives are minimal. It was clean and 'adequate'; the buffet breakfast was also 'just adequate' with paper plates and plastic cutlery. No bread one day because the baker had failed to deliver...!
The only close restaurant is the Red Onion Grill; not great surroundings and decor, but the menu and food was very good and the service friendly.
The Lassen Volcanic Park is amazing and I would happily stay 'anywhere' to visit it again.

Mannie and Amy make sure they do everything they can to make you comfortable in the hotel but also in Chester, helping you find the best place to see and eat at. This Hotel is also the place with business class WiFi. com. Downstairs has an nicely accessorized business room for faxing or printing. The rooms are incredibly large and comfortable. No cramped feeling here. Highly suggest for business and vacation travelers.

We stayed here the other night on our trip to Lassen. it was very clean and comfortable. We stayed in one of the suites that had glow in the dark stars on the ceiling. It was cool! There were even 3 shooting stars and the 'Milky Way.' I liked the pastry, muffin, waffles and hot chocolate with whipped cream for breakfast which was included with the room. I hope to go back someday.
