“Perfect!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

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. I really liked that the entrances where locked at all times. There are places to eat and shop nearby. The Tanger Outlet is 10 minutes away. Overall we were very pleased and would highly recommend the California Inn.

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 was fine.

This was a very nice hotel! It was better than I had expected it to be. It was very clean, close to shopping and the staff were all very friendly & helpful. We needed trip supplies and there was a Wal Mart close by which was very helpful.

Great place for short stay. Clean rooms, good bed and breakfast with both cold and warm dishes.
Excellent location for an overnight stay when traveling from/to LA and Las Vegas or Grand Canyon. Shoping in Tanger outlet is an optional bonus

A well run friendly hotel with spacious rooms and comfortable beds. Excellent security door to bedroom wing. Great value for money with free breakfast. Good restaurant next door and close to shops. One of the best stop overs on our 6 weeks tour of the south west USA. Good clean pool.

Room Tip: Choose downstairs for easy access to pool. Choose upstairs for view.
