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

Large room with easy access to parking, all the top rated eateries within walking or a short drive. Breakfast included eggs sausage waffles and very good pastries. Extra large pool but it wasn't very clean during our visit.

This hotel has always been kind to us. The hotel services is always great, and we've never had problems getting what we need. The condition of the hotel is perfect, and they're upgraded their TVs! Rooms are always clean and tidy and we've never had a problem with bugs, leftover messes or any other sloppy jobs. We got a room... More

We did not enjoy our stay there, at all... First, when we checked in at 9pm, I asked the hostess if I could pay cash, and she answered me that it was impossible because my credit card had already been charged the same day around 1pm. What kind of hotel does that? I should be able to pay in any... More

It was a pleasant stay. The room is big enough and has all the basic amenities (including Fridge & Microwave Oven). Nice Balcony with a view to the pool. The pool looked good and I did not get in it and so don't know how it feels. The Breakfast wasn't great, but definitely not worse. It was okay with few... More

Great night sleep on great beds! Excellent choices at breakfast- eggs, sausage, waffles, biscuits & gravy, muffins, cereal, fresh fruit and more!! Staff was very friendly. Very cost friendly! Interesting group from Europe on motor bikes traveling Route 66.

Staff was helpful. Grounds were not up to par. Room and bathroom were in desperate need of renovation. Bedspread was warn and tired looking. Locks on glass sliding doors had been broken several times and pieces of old, partially removed locks were still in place. Bathroom had crumbling walls although very clean. All in all the place had a tired,... More

Good stop on the way to Vegas in a calm area. Is it more an hotel than a classical motel but the free wifi and the breakfast included make the difference. There is a lot of offers in Barstow but it seems that the California Inn is a good opportunity. You will find a good cantina very close the motel... More
