Don't spend twice the price for a national chain motel, this independent place has nice clean rooms, a pool and helpful staff at half the price. Los Domingos restaurant just down the street is very good, and they'll give you a discount if you tell them you're staying at the California Inn.

Overall, I would stay here again. I don't know I'd go here if I had a teenage daughter or daughters with me. The Inn did not look like much when we pulled up - kind of on a main thoroughfare in Barstow. We stayed on a Wednesday night. It was surprisingly quiet (set back and down the property away from...

Came to Barstow for the first time to assess moving to the area and stayed at the California Inn. The bed was amazingly comfortable and the rooms were very quiet. Got a good long sleep there and would enjoy staying there again.

We arrived here while they are remodeling parts of the wing. So it smells a little bit stuffy. It's a great place to stay for a night . Great service from the owners and this is a much older Inn, so don't expect anything modern. They offer free breakfast (6am-9am), great rooms, Ac works, free Wi-Fi, big pool and lots... More

We found this motel here on tripadvisor. For only one night we didnt expect much. When we arrived the lady at the desk was really friendly. We got a room on the first floor facing the road. We couldnt find an elevator. As we had two big suitcases, it was a bit of a lift. As we came to the... More

California Inn is located by busy road. Not much to see, but some gas stations and fast food joints near by. The place is typical road-side motel and there is a small breakfast (some mystery porridge that did't taste like porridge). Also nice looking pool that guests seemed to like. Room was huge and okay, but there were some insects... More

This motel has laundry facilities ! More motels should offer this service. I had been on my motorcycle approaching 2 months and realized that this service is not as common as it should be. The front desk was friendly and efficient. The room was more than what I needed (2 beds / sets of towels, etc) The whole building, although... More

We enjoyed our stay at this non-chain hotel. Everything was neat, clean, and well-kept. The person who checked us in gave us a piece of fruit left over from the breakfast bar that day, and a bottle of cold water. He was very nice and helpful! It is not a luxury resort, but that is not what we choose when... More

I only planned on staying 1 night at the California Inn on my solo trip across the country. But I needed a break from driving so I decided to stay an extra day to recouperate. I parked right outside the sliding glass door entry to my room. The big double glass door made it so nice & open-feeling inside -... More
