5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for one night and booked late through Hotels.com. The rate was 50usd which was lower than the rate advertised outside the hotel. The room was massive with two double beds and could not be faulted. We even managed an hour by the pool. Would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling through barstow.

Overall decent for the price. Rooms are more than average size and I really enjoy the dual sink layout my room had . (One in the bathroom, and another in the main room). I would recommend the California Inn since it is one of the better places to stay in Barstow for the price paid.

Stuck a pin in the map for an overnight stop and found this great place by chance. A well run hotel with friendly staff, and clean linen. Good pool area and free wifi. If one was being picky you could mention there was no aircon in the hallways.but for the price that would be churlish to mention. Aircon in the... More

The room is good, beds are comfortable, and there is minibar and microwave, but the service is definitively not! The breakfast is weak and the attendants are grumpy. The pool is ok, We just stayed for one night, so it was ok.

We liked the look of the hotel as we drove past and were not disappointed. It was spotless and our rooms were excellent and very spacious and comfortable. There was a lovely pool area and one of our rooms (as did many of the rooms) overlooked the pool area, which was a bonus. We spent the evening around the pool... More

after a long day of travel we were glad to get to our destination for the night. We've never been there previously so this reservation was made hopping for the best. However in the area, there isn't that much choice... We were not disappointed. Easy access to the freeway and well located. Free parking, free wifi, free breakfast and clean.... More
