We go downtown Fremont street several times each year for a nice getaway. The cal is a little nicer than most of the downtown hotels. They give a lot of little Hilton style extras that you don't see at the others, like shower caps, lotions and all the staff is friendly. Cleaner than most. Please note I am comparing Fremont...

We vacation at the Cal. four times per year The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The video poker machines at the Cal. and Main Street Station (adjacent by an inclosed overhead bridge) are some of the best in Las Vegas. There are plenty of food options at both the Cal. and Main Street Casino. The location of the Cal.... More

We stayed here for a long weekend. Staff was nice although we booked a room with 1 king bed but instead got 2 doubles......I can deal with that. We got in our room and the ac wasn't working......they fixed it. Main problem I had was the cleanliness of the room. It smelled really bad (like old cigarettes) and the shower... More

My family, out of towners, usually stay there and all us "locals" join them for Meals, gaming, and just an all around great time. Rosewood Grill is great dining and love weekend brunch next door Main Street Station.

We have stayed exclusively at the California Hotel and Casino for over 20 plus years. The aloha spirit is refreshing, the staff friendly and helpful. There is a variety of gaming choices for every preference ( keno is my favorite). It's a relaxed atmosphere in pleasant surroundings. My favorite meal is the oxtail soup delicious!
