We travel to Vegas every 3-4 months a year and we always stay at "The Cal." The staff there are always friendly, rooms are spotless and most of all we never have to worry about our safety. In the past 25+ years, we have stayed at other hotel/casinos when rooms were sold out at the Cal and I would like... More

The Cal is a clean place to stay in downtown, when you don't want to spend a lot on your accommodations. They have a number of good comfort food options and a 24/7 cafe. My only issues on this last trip was that housekeeper kept leaving only 3 sets of towels, even though 2 adults and 2 children were staying... More

My husband and I come to Vegas 3-4 times a year strictly to gamble. We don't care about shows, etc. We have stayed at almost every hotel downtown before looking into the Cal. We prefer a quieter place with friendly staff. We have found the Cal to be extremely helpful, friendly, with the nicest dealers in all of Vegas! The... More

I go to the Cal during the Super Bowl weekend ever year...and every year they treat me like a queen. Staff is friendly, from the bellman to the servers in the restaurants. The dealers and pit bosses are the bomb! They make me feel like a part of the Cal Ohana! Also, the cost is reasonable, the rooms are clean... More

EXACTLY as advertised. No surprises; good or bad. Easy walk to Fremont Experience and Tony Roma's for Steak & Lobster... also easy walk to Main St Station & Greyhound for most tour bus departures to Grand Canyon... NOTE - buy the Helicopter fly-over of the canyon on-line before you get there = save about 30%

Like LizB we are older, quiet folk, who simply love to gamble. The Cali has all we need APART FROM any sense of being made to feel welcome. We are from England, so are completely at ease with all races BUT a fair few of the Hawaiian guests are quite aggressive. They seem to feel that this is THEIR hotel... More

We came to play the Cal-HI Spring Golf tournament that the California Hotel puts on every year. The tournament is fun, the employees are friendly, the food is very good, and the rooms are nice. Love everything about it.

As most know, a lot of people from Hawaii visit and stay at the Cal - they cater to people from Hawaii and they have many loyal customers. I have never stayed at the Cal or downtown for that matter so this was a first for me. I have to say that it was nice hanging out with locals and... More

We just came to California hotel to eat the oxtail soup which only serve at 11pm. 1 bowl of oxtail soup with a bowl of rice cost around $10. Inside there were around 4 big oxtail beef and 2 small ones. The oxtail was well cooked,can tell from the tenderness of the meat. Soup also tasty.

Main street hasn't remodeled... More
