The California Hotel and Casino (Cal) is a block away from Fremont Street and is perfect getaway. The pro to the Cal is that they charge no resort fee of $30 per night like they do on the strip. The table games are great considering they have lower minimums then the strip and the food prices are a big win... More

Check in was swift and painless. The elevators were pretty good but I soon learned it was easier to get on and off at the mezzanine level rather than the casino level. The room was clean and the main part had good carpet and curtains. Mini fridge was a nice bonus. The bathroom was showing some age but was clean.... More

I've stayed at the Cal dozens of times over the years, and it's my first choice for a hotel in the downtown area. The rooms are not lavish, but they're nice. The restaurants are top shelf, and range from Frank Sinatra to casual. You'll probably notice that a good number of the hotel clientele are from Hawaii and that the... More

Traveled to Las Vegas with a friend who had a four-night comp stay at the California Hotel & Casino. Last time I was in this area was back in the 60s when this was the heart of Las Vegas. On arrival, only one person at the desk working check in. Waited about 5 minutes before our turn. Receptionist was friendly... More

We've stayed at The California hotel many times but our last stay there may be exactly that. We had requested a non-smoking room & we were told at check-in that there were none available. We were given a smoking room that was in disrepair & extremely dirty. My photos show the bathroom but I should have also taken pictures of... More

Stayed here on a packaged tour. Can't beat the deal of airfare, dining & accommodations. Although the hotel is in downtown, there were lots of things to do within walkig distance. Foodchoices in the hotel and adjacent Main Street Hotel is fantastic. Bargain vacation for gamblers and foodies.

The hallway was dingy and smelly so I was scared to see the room. The room was nicer than expected. There were long black hairs on the white bed cover (I am blonde) and the plantation shutter was broken so there was no way to block the light. $9.99 daily WiFi fee PER DEVICE and the slots were super tight....

I would liken to confirm what I ave been saying for at least the past 20 years that the Cal is the only place for me to stay while in Vegas. I have been extremely lucky with the accommodations at The Cal. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The menus at all of the restaurants gives me a large variation... More

the couples are couples and not some guy with some hot chippy. The food places are reasonable as well as good. The casino area is not bunched up together and crowded. The cashier at the restaurant around the corned from the elevators was friendly and not cold. It would be better if all of the food places would be friendlier... More

Wow what a nasty hotel. We checked in a round 5 pm to a room that had not been cleaned. Beds were a mess, restroom had all of the towels on the floor and every piece of counter space had Marijuana residue on it. Trash cans were full of used drug paraphernalia. Was told there were no rooms at the... More
