Went to Vegas for a two-night trip to watch our son play basketball. Haven't stayed in old Vegas before but it's my new favourite part of town. We rented a car and it was very easy to get to and from the hotel and navigate the parking garage. From the first staff encounter to the last, all employees we met... More

We come here quite often when we visit Las Vegas at least once a month from California. It is in the older downtown area including the Fremont Experience, which has added a lot of new restaurants, live music, shops and more. We love the restaurant at the California, offering Hawaiian specialties, breakfast all day, food is overall very good. My... More

OK so how can you NOT come back here when they offer you four free nights? Then, they provide you with food coupons to cover all three meals per day for all four days? Then, to top it off, you have some FREE slot machine money to play with! This is a no-brainer folks. They send us these offers in... More

Arrived on July 4th one day earlier than our booked stay on the strip. Decided to stay downtown and were limited to availability. Decided on California and what a great deal we received. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Quiet Hotel and customer service was outstanding.

We absolutely love The California in Downtown Las Vegas. The California's Players club offers us great reward for our play. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Friendly place to stay and play! It is always our first choice.

We are frequent visitors to Las Vegas and ALWAYS stay at the California. The entire staff operates with Aloha Spirit and makes much effort to remember frequent visitors. We are always welcomed back with smiles, and, quite often, by name. The Cal is known to treat Hawaiians with specialty, but, I always observe all staffers treat all customers with great... More

Stayed at Cal 6/27 & 6/28. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, flat screen TV. Price was reasonable. The room was old but you don't travel to Vegas to stay in your room. Definitely a lot people from Hawaii were there. It's a short two block walk to Fremont St. Good value for your money.

I love staying at The Cal since we go at least twice to Aloha Specialties for lunch or breakfast. PLUS I've won a decent amount at their video slot machines! :) The hotel is "old" but the rooms are still decent and clean. If you aren't planning on spending most of your time in the room (I don't know anyone... More

I come here quite often as it caters to the people of Hawaii...The hotel is located in downtown LV a block off Fremont St...The rooms are nice and clean with a mini-fridge to hold drinks...One negative is the hotel charges $10 a night for wifi in the room. California Hotel has the best food around. If you are from Hawaii,... More
