Large room (No. 103) on the ground floor with large bathroom. Very clean, comfortable bed. We didn't use the pool or go for the breakfast that was included as wanted a lie in. It is near the freeway and some noise can be heard but not enough to bother us or keep us awake. A big plus was that whilst... More

Upon arrival I questioned Tripadvisor's award of excellence for 2014 at the entrance. This is an old property. Our room was clean but dated. The bedding and towels were worn. That said, the bed was comfortable, the room was quiet, and we had a good breakfast to send us on our way. Friendly, helpful service. Great location with lots of... More

The room was okay, nothing special, but good for the money. Smaller tv than most hotels. Free wifi was nice and fast. Breakfast better than most hotels' free breakfast. Room was clean. Took a little while for the water to get hot, but it once it got hot, it stayed hot. Older heater that would only turn on hot or... More

Travelling through on our way to Las Vegas. The hotel is conveniently located about a block off the freeway - very easy access and quiet. The staff was courteous. The room was clean. The continental breakfast was excellent.

Very nice facility. Friendly and helpful staff. An older motel, but very clean and well maintained. Easy access off the interstate. A lot of eating establishments within walking distance or short driving range.

I would love to stay at the California Inn any time I am passing through Barstow! Nice, big, clean, QUIET room. Beautiful pool area. Nice landscaping. My favorite perk was that they have Turner Classic Movies (TCM) channel on their cable. Also a good breakfast. I would recommend this place to anyone.

California Inn was way more than I expected. Rooms were very clean and newly renovated. Fitness room was good too. From outside this motel(?)was very good looking. Only thing why I just couldn't give five stars is our rooms toilet flush button which was annoying. It was a button which needed to press long time to get toilet to flush... More

Very friendly/professional staff, well maintained, clean and really good price and it is right off the 15 freeway. Shopping outlets (Tanger) are also near by. The rooms were very clean, free Wifi and free breakfast was awesome. They served waffle, sausage, donuts, cereal, fruit and coffee. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are planning on staying in Barstow.
