This hotel has great low rates and is in Downtown Vegas. The hotel employees are all friendly and keep the place real clean. The food at the main restaurant is delicious and excellent. The prices are reasonable It is very close to the Fremont Experience. Lots of bars & restaurants near by. I always eat at Tony Roma's Steak House.... More

Overall, I really enjoyed my stay. The rooms looked newly renovated and the staff was very friendly. Everyone was happy to help me with my first real visit to Las Vegas. The buffet breakfast I had was also very good! It had a decent variety that would allow everyone to be able to find something to eat. I didn't gamble,... More

I come here everytime I fly to Vegas. Not because it's someplace exquisite, but it's comfortable. Don't come here if you want modern, go to the strip. The food is cheap and it's actually good. The rooms are decent. We get free self parking as registered guests or if you're sapphire or emerald players card holder. Or with a receipt... More

The California has a good location downtown and is connected with Main Street Casino and Hotel by an over the street walkway. Both have nice restaurants. There are two towers at the California; the east tower seems more recently updated; but the west tower is nice too. The hotel staff is friendly and accommodating. Our stay included breakfast each morning... More

The room is small but decorated nice. It's appears to be a very clean room. That is until you really look around! The bathroom was bad at a second glance . Black mold in the shower is the first thing I spotted. Then looking at the walls they really need a deep cleaning. There was hair in the tub. The... More

This was our first stay at the California. Stayed five nights. Quick check-in and check-out. Very pleased with our accessible room on the 19th floor, West Tower, however, the room was a bit far from the elevators. Our non-smoking room was clean and spacious. We opted to leave the window open (opens about 4"); and when the window was shut,... More

Granted, The California Hotel & Casino is an older, but definitely a grander, place to gamble. My husband and I have been staying here for years. The staff is immensely courteous and helpful. They have gone above and beyond on numerous occasions. The video poker is plentiful and we manage to win often. The table game bets suit the younger... More

Won a trip which included this hotel for 5 nights. Room was clean and quiet and hotel had all the services we could ask for. I would stay there again if looking for moderate property on Fremont Street. all the Food & Beverage venues had good product and service.

The hotel room was clean the bed comfortable and the casino had direct access to Freemont Street. The check-in was quick and easy, same with checkout. We were there only for one night but it was a good experience.
