We stayed here on the back end of our cross country trip. The staff was friendly, the rooms were nice, and the beds were comfy. The continental breakfast is definitely better than every other place we had stayed, (coming from Florida there were a lot)

We stayed last week end, July 20, 2014 at the California Inn. The rooms were clean, well appointed and easy to use. It was quiet, and the breakfast was superb. We are glad we booked the place before we arrived there, because by the time we arrived, the rooms were sold out. It is easy to access the freeways, and... More

I was traveling from the bay area to Las Vegas, which I normally do in one go, but had a late start, and ended up staying at California Inn. Checkin was easy and fast. The rooms are access via inside hallways vs Motel 6 style external doors. The room was surprisingly large, very clean. This place does have a pool,... More

The California Inn is older, but in good condition and clean, pretty standard in furnishings and arrangement. With three people using one bathroom, it was nice having two sinks - one in the room and one in the bathroom. Room had a micro/fridge and the standard breakfast was included. The A/C was turned off when we checked in. It was... More

I've stayed here on a previous trip from az to cali and was not disappointed. The rooms are very large and many have upgrades. All have a microwave and a fair size fridge. The rooms facing the pool are lovely and have a slider door to the inside courtyard area facing the mountains. Very nicely landscaped too. This family owned... More

We stayed here while on our way back to vegas and we're a little nervous when we pulled up but they had great reviews. The lady at check in was very pleasant and helpful. The room was nice and the air conditioning was COLD! (THIS IS A GOOD THING) The pool was great and they offered towels at the pool.... More

The hotel was a pleasant suprise. As it was not expensive we had prepared ourselves for a much lower standard then we got. The room was clean and pscious and spacious and of very good quality and the breakfast if great! The hotel was easy to find and had enough parking space In the surroundings are many good restaurants.

Perfect situated hotel just outside LA. Just a day trip to Grand Canyon or Las Vegas. Route 66 is also close by. The breakfast was delicious and the hotel is close to a very nice Mexican restaurant. Didn't try the pool but it looked really nice.

This was my second time staying there in the last 12 months. Room was fine we only stayed overnight. Breakfast was worse than last year, no hot option, and the waffles weren't great, it was much much better last time I stayed. I would stay again as for the price including free wifi and breakfast for an overnight stay it... More
