We stayed overnight here at the start of a Route 66 motorcycle tour. We booked the hotel in the UK and read the reviews prior to booking. We were not disappointed. The rooms could do with a bit of updating, however, they were clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good and exceded our expectations.... More

walking distance to some restaurants, not far from the freeway, rooms need new furnishings and updated tv's...but hey!! the bed was comfy, the room was clean, we had a fridge and microwave, as well as a breakfast buffet and wifi ....more than we expected for the cheap price.

For the price, the beds were comfortable, rooms clean, refrigerator, microwave, and a lot of TV channels... California Inn is way better than any of the other places I've stayed in Barstow... My job often takes me out in the desert for 10 hour long days in the heat - California Inn is is my favorite place to come back... More

I booked this room based on previous reviews, but have to say, little disappointing. The outside looks clean and well kept, but the rooms were not as impressive. For one, the beds were a little less than comfortable with only 2 small pillows to sleep on. The TV was really out-dated, it was square, which I thought most motels would... More

After looking at a few hotels in the area and checking prices and reviews I decided to book this place for 1 night. About half the price of the leading name budget hotels and I was only staying for 6 hours or so on my trip through the area. Easy check-in, large room, comfortable bed, fridge, and good bathroom and... More

Room reservation was quick and easy. Management and service personnel were very nice and helpful. Everything was exactly as advertised. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The Continental Breakfast was much better than I expected. During my 5 week stay, I had no problems at all. Hotel is located close to freeway, shopping and Gas station access. Next time... More

It was grungy old and loud! Our room door seemed insecure and easy to push through. It needs updates and repairs badly. It is also right below a pub which was loud and routy. We did not stay for breakfast because we were worried about the cleanliness factor. Scetchy place, won't stay again.

We stopped here on our way home from Arizona. Price seems reasonable for an average place. The place was clean, but in need of some upgrades and routine maitenance.It's convient to many fast food eateries, but full service restaurants were scarce. We can't rave about the place being good or bad. Just another average overnight stopping place.

Fine room at a great price. Good breakfast and fine wifi. Good location close to the highway. Highly recommended. We stayed for one night on the way to Death Valley. Excellent choice. We visited Calico Ghost Town and Early Man Archaeological Site just outside of town.

Excellent value for money in the context of the wide variety of U.S. accommodation in which I've stayed. Room was very spacious and well-appointed and was a great stopover ahead of a trip to Calico Ghost Town and onward to Death Valley. I have made a point of making this my very first TripAdvisor review because I felt it more... More
