“Oasis in the Desert”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

Five star all the way! As we were driving in, we were a little leery that a hotel out in the middle of what we call desert would be of high quality. What a surprise! This hotel is truly an oasis paradise!

This is a fairly new hotel with a golf course right next door. The staff at check-in were very friendly, efficient, and helpful. We had a room with two queen beds on the first floor. Although the room was right next to the fitness center, it was very quiet. We had a very good nights sleep.

The room was a very good size, if I had a complaint it would be that the bathroom is small for the size of the room. The room and bathroom were very clean, as was the entire property.

The stay included breakfast with eggs, sausage, and make-it-yourself breakfast burritos and waffles, along with the standard fare. Staff on check-out was superb (same high quality as check-in).

Name restaurants are quite a drive. We went to Lancaster, CA (about 45 minutes). We did not try the local fare but there are a few small restaurants in the vicinity.

Overall, the best hotel we stayed in on a two week trip!

Stayed here two nights in a single queen room. Furniture solid and in good shape. Seems to have been recently repainted, but the painting was a little sloppy. High quality image on the flat-screen tv. Watched some of the NBA playoffs. Bathroom was in nice condition and the shower was large. Rooms give a nice appearance overall but are a little small. The photos above don't show a typical standard room. Our main room, exclusive of the bathroom and entry area, was about 10x13. Free wireless, but it is unsecured, like most hotels, so don’t do your banking here. Had a couple of minor problems with the room when we checked in and they were fixed very quickly by maintenance. They have an interior elevator that provides access to the second and third floors. Most of the parking is in the back, where there is keyed access.

Across the street is a par 3 golf course, a dog park and California City Central Park. Lots of birds in the park if you are into birding. Breakfast is fine with a couple of comments. We like hard boiled eggs and they don’t have any. Also I like to use a microwave to heat the bread and pastries and there is no microwave. Staff was pleasant and accommodating. We would stay again if we were in the area.

Our stay at Best Western California City was pleasant. The staff is friendly, helpful and professional. The property is new, clean and modern. We had no issues with the room which was clean. The beds were a little firm for my taste. The hotel is easy to locate. Good experience.

This hotel was a positive surprise to my family. Way out in the great outdoors, we were amazed to find such a superior place for a nights rest. The entire facility was far above what we expected. Everything was clean and in excellent condition. We found nothing that needed repair or attention. The pool is beautiful and so well kept up that it was a pleasure to just gaze at. The breakfast was delicious and the dinning area spacious.

My stay was very pleasant. I found the desk clerk very friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. My only complaint with my stay was the noisy refrigerator in the room. If I had not had earplugs I would not have been able to sleep. The only solution would have been to unplug the refrigerator. Not good if you have food to keep cool.

Room very clean. Accommodations very comfortable. The TV had a very nice picture and there were multiple channels to watch with an info guide! A nice surprise for a hotel. I was extremely pleased with my staff here.

For a new hotel this is a disappointment. From burnt out lightbulbs to a running toilet. Also a flood in the hallway that wasn't being fixed just a sign on the soaking we carpet. The housekeeping ignored the do not disturb sign and entered the room

BEST WESTERN California City Inn & Suites Welcome to the BEST WESTERN California City Inn & Suites!

Whether it is hiking, business at the base or an adrenaline packed motocross event that is on the agenda, staying in comfort is crucial. New appliances in every room and a lavish pool make guests feel at home. This California City hotel is renowned for cleanliness, but it is hospitality that really sets the bar high. Enjoy a fitness room on site to keep up with those workout regimens and a meeting room so you do not have to go far to close the deal. Slip away to the Desert Tortoise Preserve and get to know some real locals. Enjoy a golf tournament at one of the local courses or simply spend the day working on that swing. The nearby Silver Saddle Ranch and Club is a peek into the Wild West and entertainment for the whole family. Even business travelers with the Borax Mine and local correctional facility make time to enjoy everything Mother Nature has to offer. Truly get away from it all with a stay at this California City hotel. Construction and repair crews can take advantage of extended stay rates, and those with NASA or aerospace companies make the most of an escape from the hustle and bustle.
