Room looked like it was renovated and crap. AC unit wasn't working properly. Mold on bathroom ceiling. No ventilation for bathroom. Parking costs 3$. Shower walls were loose and bending. Sink wasn't properly tightened. Cell phone service inside room sucks. None at all. Overcharge thru hotel when booking company already cleared payment. Tried to double charge for room. Customer service... More

The California Hotel is like a home away from home for most islanders because the hotels caters to the Hawai'i people so much. From the way the staff dresses in Aloha shirts to the restaurants that serve local food, it's to make us feel at home. The hotel itself is a little old and run down, and the rooms could... More

As a Hawaii born, staying at the Cal seems like a logical choice. I go to Vegas 2-3x a year to see my grandparents, who fly in with the Vacations Hawaii charter. I've seen this hotel go through several changes over the years, but one thing remains constant. The Aloha Spirit is alive and well here. Everyone from the valet,... More

My parents, children and I just stayed at the California hotel from July 4th thru the 6th. I had never stayed here before but after reading the reviews we thought we would try it. They put us on the 8th floor in the east tower. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. When we got off the elevator on... More

Be prepared that your reservation doesn't guarantee the room or bed you want. The front desk doesn't care or even try to apologize for it. So that is disappointing. Had a room in the East wing, and it is not updated at all. Just a room with a wall a/c. Room is cheap and that is what you get. Since... More

Super friendly staff from the front desk to the bellmen. Even though we arrive early (10 am) we can usually get our room immediately. All the cocktail servers and food servers are always available and courteous. We are not from Hawaii yet feel the Aloha spirit throughout our stay. Clean comfortable and cozy. Limited TV channels but does cover sports... More

We travel to Vegas every 3-4 months a year and we always stay at "The Cal." The staff there are always friendly, rooms are spotless and most of all we never have to worry about our safety. In the past 25+ years, we have stayed at other hotel/casinos when rooms were sold out at the Cal and I would like... More

The Cal is a clean place to stay in downtown, when you don't want to spend a lot on your accommodations. They have a number of good comfort food options and a 24/7 cafe. My only issues on this last trip was that housekeeper kept leaving only 3 sets of towels, even though 2 adults and 2 children were staying... More

My husband and I come to Vegas 3-4 times a year strictly to gamble. We don't care about shows, etc. We have stayed at almost every hotel downtown before looking into the Cal. We prefer a quieter place with friendly staff. We have found the Cal to be extremely helpful, friendly, with the nicest dealers in all of Vegas! The... More
