4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We have been coming here every year for the past 20 years and have enjoyed our stay every time. The staff is always friendly and helpful. We feel welcomed, safe, comfortable, and relaxed. Just like home. We recommend staying at The Cal to all of our friends and family.

Stayed for the second time at the Cal. It is a very comforting place to stay. It is one block away from the Fremont Street Experience and very close to everything Downtown has to offer. There is easy transportation to The Strip so visiting the mega complexes is not a problem. The staff is nice and helpful. On check-in, the... More

Stayed at the California from Saturday Jan. 30 till Feb. 1st. Very clean sparsely decorated room. The bathroom was very clean and neat. The bed was kinda hard but I had no sleep problems on it. The nice soft big pillows made up for it. The check-in was quick and efficient. I just thought a $ 100.00 deposit was a... More

This hotel was really nice! Friendly staff, clean rooms, great new beds! The casino was clean, lots of slots and table games. This hotel has a pool, was closed for the season when we were there. One block off Fremont St. and has the walkway across to Mainstreet Station. Great places to eat and drink in the hotel. We would... More

Our original reservations at another strip hotel somehow got cancelled and the party was not notified in advance. Coming into Vegas at 11PM after flying for 7.5 hours after working a full day my irritation level was on high. I asked a waitress at the bar if she had any suggestions and she told us check downtown. Not only was... More

Our group original reservations on the strip was cancelled because of a late check in. We were stranded. I asked a waitress at the other hotel if she had any suggestions. She made a call (of course we generously tipped her) and we bussed it Downtown at 1AM. Not only did they have a room at a great price, we... More

The Redwood Bar & Grill @ the California has a great "off menu" special. It is an 18 oz Porterhouse steak w/salad & dessert for about $25.00 USD. You have to ask your server for the Porterhouse special. This in no thin Porterhouse, about an inch and a half thick, cooked to order. One of the best steaks I have... More

Nice off the Fremont strip hotel. Good local grinds. Very family friendly, lots of grandmas playing slots. Adorable. Laid back, purposefully not very fancy. Great place to lay your head for a fun weekend.

We travel to Las Vegas a few times a year and always stay at the "CAL". We appreciate the good deals offered by Boyd Gaming to Hawaii Residents and make good use of them. We have had some minor issues in the past but the customer service and response from management usually takes care of any problem. We feel relaxed... More

I have stay'd here a few times in the past but this was the worst of them all. Room did not have heat. Went to the desk multiple times but no one ever fixed it. Shower spray was like a garden hose. When checking out and again complaining they didn't offer any type of compensation and wanted me to wait... More
