“Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Very helpful and good service. Clean and well maintain. We really lucked out for just pulling off the freeway and needing a room during a ho;iday weekend! Esturant next door and close to shops. Thank You.

Cleanest most convenient place to stay in Barstow. The hotel is tucked off of Main Street, has a pool, and secure back courtyard with bbqs. All of the staff is very accommodating to every need, and the rooms area always clean and ready to go. The location has easy access to I-15, but far enough away to have quiet nights full of sleep. Whenever I have to stay or travel through Barstow, I always stay at the California.

Room Tip: Request a room with a pool view to have access to the courtyard through a sliding door, or have a ba...

Nothing to fault this motel in the middle of the Californian desert. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the rate was absolutely reasonable. The only minor point is that we had the choice between turning the air con on to heat the room - with the noise causing us some problems to sleep - or have it pretty cold in the room. Again, you don't get this kind of weather too often over there, so that's not really the hotel's fault.

If we ever come back to Barstow, we'd definitely stay here again. The staff were very friendly.

The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Although I do take some mental points off for the pillows (not a fan) but the beds were very comfortable. For the price they offer a great place to stay, with a refrigerator (with an amazing freezer) and a decent complimentary breakfast. There are a few hot food selections (hard boiled eggs, sausage, make your own waffles) and the standard toast/fruit/oatmeal that most places offer.

I stayed at California Inn few nights. My stay was very comfortable, safe and felt like home. The staff was proffessional and very kind. Room was large and clean. The brealfast was better than next door I-Hop. There is a very nice view from the back rooms, my wife and kids really enjoy the pool. Its a great place for the entire family and there are stores and restaurants within walking distance.If you pass thru barstow I highly recommend California Inn. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Back rooms have nice mountain and night view.
