This was one of the cleanest hotel rooms we've stayed in. The staff is friendly, the location is convenient to the interstate, the cost is reasonable,and the breakfast was tasty. I'm glad we drove past Vegas and spent the night at the California Inn.

This is by far the best deal I've found in and around Barstow. The price is reasonable, the staff friendly, the breakfast ample and very clean. Conveniently located less than 2 miles from the I-15/I-40 junction.

Some of the staff that worked the breakfast were rude and were not very inviting it seemed more of an inconvenience when asked to replenish certain of food that was being served. Some of the food was cold and rather unpleasant. One of the ladies happily fed her child fresh food, while others were left with what was left out.... More

This is an inexpensive hotel about 2 hours outside of LA. We stayed here to get a head start on our drive the next morning, arriving after 10 PM, and were the first ones in for breakfast at 6am. They have a free breakfast and comfortable rooms. There is also a nice little patio with a pool, grill and seating... More

Great room with nice comfortable king bed, nice hot shower, with no smells and no Febreeze!! Breakfast was not the high point of our visit. as we came down at 8:15 AM when little was available so we grabbed (literally) some coffee in white styrofoam cups (who uses these any more but this hotel) and walked away with some bananas...

The desk attendant was courteous and efficiently informative. My room was clean and comfortable. The amenities were ample: nice flat screen TV with plenty of prime channels, cold refrigerator, desk with accessible AC outlets, etc. I'll stay here again. Great deals available online. Close to good food options.

A little worn down in places (the bathtub was repaired where the tub floor had cracked) but the place was very clean and the service was quite friendly. Our room was very quiet. The breakfast buffet offered a variety of options and was better than your usual continental breakfast pastries. Good value for the price.

This time, I would like to share my experience in staying at California Inn last December. All of us (party of 4) decided to stay overnight in Barstow this time, on our way to Las Vegas, since I was quite concern with the fact that all of us might get exhausted that day after taking such a long flight from...

Nothing special, relatively clean. Pool area looked well maintained though we didn't partake. Service was fine, though parking was a bit scattered. Fine for a cheap night on the way to a better place.

Made an overnight stop in Barstow on the way to L.A. I figured for the price, it would be ok. And it was "OK". The room was clean-ish, the service was acceptable. The pool looked nice though we did not use it. The breakfast is above average. Our room was missing 2 locks we later found out were standard for... More
