I have been staying at the California Hotel 2-4 times a year for 12 years now. The staff is excellent and friendly. The rooms are clean and the restaurants are great. I always feel safe there and the gaming is just what I look for. I celebrated my 50th birthday there 10 years ago in one of their event rooms... More

Rooms are clean and parking is great. Staff is friendly and willing to help. I would stay there again. Like I have for many years a repeat customer. Now if only their machines was a little looser. The West side of the casino has a enclosed pathway to Mainstreet hotel and casino. It helps when its to hot and or... More

I didn't care for the rooms at this hotel. The price is so low though, and compared to a motel 6, it's better to stay here, but for anything on par with Vegas, or even downtown Vegas, I'd rather stay anywhere else. I hated the room, hated the overall feel of the place. It really put a damper on the... More

The California Hotel is one block over (very easy walking distance) from the Fremont Street Experience. The rooms are clean and moderately furnished. Overall this is a good value, especially with prices in the $35-range on many dates. The $9.99 charge per device per day for slow wi-fi is a negative, but we used our phones as hot-spots to get...

The hotel is in downtown vegas close to the freemont experience. Its got a 70's feel dated, but clean and if you get rooms early you can get it for 35$. Very cheap alternative to the strip. The restaurant down stairs makes awesome oxtail soup at nights a perfect late night food. There are free shuttles to the strip if... More

Very late check in on Saturday night and didn't want to pay a ridiculous price. This hotel was cheap. Room on sixth floor was dated but clean and spacious. Plenty of towels and toiletries provided. Small safe in room which is key operated. Close to Fremont Street.

I stayed at this hotel from Aug 10 - 14. I usually do book at the sister property Main Street Station but decided to give the California a try. Upon entering the room I was shocked at how small it was compared to the Main Street Station. The carpet was a bit worn out and should be replaced. The washroom... More

We decided to add one more night to our week long stay. We checked our offers and had a comped room here. The check in clerk was rather a short with us, but got us checked in and sent on our way - to the room at the very end of the hall on the ninth floor. It was fine... More

Stayed here 7 nights in early August 2014. It's basic, clean, friendly, and in a good downtown location. For the prices they charge, can't really complain. The room has everything you need: frig, hair dryer, TV, alarm clock, and iron. Internet for a fee of $9.99 per day per device. Hotels in VEGAS, for the most part, charge for internet!... More
