Reluctantly stayed at this hotel for a night until we could move to the strip as the city was full. What a mistake. This hotel caters to the cheap Hawaiians travel groups, mostly seniors that have probably been coming here for years and staying due to cost. This hotel is need of some major renovations and cleaning. There were areas... More

This is one of the old hotels close to Fremont Street Experience. We liked it. It was clean and staff most helpful. Hubby has some mobility issues and everyone was so nice to us. The rooms are a bit dated, but price was good...about $100 average per nite for 4 nights that included weekend. It was handy to food and... More

This hotel casino caters to people from Hawaii with island-style and Asian food (Spam musubi, saimin, ox tail soup, and more.) The seed store sells dried jerky, nuts, preserved seeds, and dried fruit and the ice cream shop sells shave ice and malasadas. The rooms could use an update, for sure, but our rooms have always been clean with a... More

If you're from Hawaii you stay at the Cal. So, we came from California to visit some family on vacation and decided to stay here too. I've stayed downtown before but probably won't stay here again. The bathtub had mold along the edges and the bathtub bottom was black. The drain in the sink was rusted and they don't provide... More

We stay here perhaps once a month because of the great service we receive. This place is pure Aloha! Is it a 5* resort - NO! The rooms are basic and clean. It is very relaxing, and for the price it is a win-win. The best part, NO RESORT FEES! I will return!

First visit to The Cal. I enjoyed my visit and the amenities of this hotel. It was the closest I have ever been to the parking garage. Usually you have to walk the entire length from your elevator to the rooms to the garage elevator. Here it was only feet away. The restaurants were very good especially Noodle House. I... More

We did not stay here but we really enjoyed gambling here. It has a great vintage Vegas feel and the employees were really nice. I was so surprised and extremely happy to see that The California has kept most of their video poker machines, not replacing them with those money sucking penny machines or the new lower paying video poker...

We won a trip for two to the California Hotel in Vegas. Although we didn't win any money we wanted to make note about the rooms and hotel. Staff was very pleasant and nice through out. Rooms were in need of an upgrade, and pillow very uncomfortable! Rooms also need a coffee maker which was missed the most. No one... More
