The California is mid-sized property, nostalgic and a very nice throwback to the 50's and the pulse of Old Vegas. We stayed here for 4 weekday nights while attending a conference comprised of 250 people. The group package/rate we received was an INCREDIBLE DEAL including room and 3 meals daily. I just could not believe the value considering we were... More

This hotel feels like "home"......the dealers and cocktail waitresses are very friendly...I only sleep, shower and watch TV (when my luck is down) in the room...food is great...I love making a weekend trip there.

The California Hotel is caters to Hawaii visitors. In fact it is almost impossible us to visit Las Vegas and NOT see someone you know there. It is an older hotel in Downtown Las Vegas, but is very close to the Freemont Experience. Lots of Aloha there. Market Street Cafe serves a great oxtail soup. The rooms are average, but... More

Laid back and friendly. Rooms could use an update, but they were still clean and comfortable. Best food around. If you are from Hawaii, this is where all the locals go when in Vegas. Try the malasadas for breakfast and the ox tail soup at night.

We booked the California (the Cal.), based on location ( close to Freemont & express bus to the Strip) & price and the good TA reviews. We were satisfied for the most part but had to call the front desk, every second day, because of no hot water. The maintenance people would come right away and mysteriously ..."presto" we had...

This was a very nice hotel within walking distance of the Freemont experience which is not really for kids but go early say eight if they are with you-(watch out for scantily clad folks). Breakfast at their sister establishment (not main street) along Freemont street was very good, 2 free came with the room. You get a discount if you... More

Was a nice hotel. I have never stayed in old Vegas ( downtown) before so I thought I would try it. I'm glad I did. Walking distance to the Freemont Light show, was pretty cool. I always stayed on the strip before so this was a nice change. The hotel room was a little smaller than what I was use... More

We booked 2 rooms and stayed for one night Feb 9th. My parents room across the hall had a major slope issue ( we placed a can of pop and watched it roll to the other side) Rooms were decent. Only complaints I have is that I booked online that included the $10 meal/bev credit. But when I asked for... More
