Rated 5 out of 5 by Sabella25 Relaxing & enjoyable stay everytime.
My husband and I prefer to stay at the California hotel & casino. From the moment we walk in the door we feel like we are at home. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. The bars have great prices and value, I prefer to drink at the hotel before I wander over to Freemont street which is barely a block away. The rooms are always nice and fresh smelling and clean. I have never had a better sleep than when we stayed at this hotel. The food here is amazing as well. You can get a large variety of meal options no matter the hour of day, unlike some resorts on the strip where the only option is a sandwich. There are many other reasons why we enjoy this hotel and overall we are happy guests. When we return in the fall I will even be booking my parents for a stay here because I just know they will love it. They had a poor experience at the last hotel they stayed at while celebrating a wedding anniversary. I just can't thank you enough California hotel for the wonderful hospitality and great experience we receive every time. I urge all of my friends to stay here instead of the strip. We will be back again and again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by vanessae Great if you have no plans for Strip
Our room was nice and really easy walking from Mob Museum (I recommend! ) and Fremont Experience. If those were our only plans the room would have worked perfectly. However we had tickets to a show at the tropicana and the taxi fees added up as well as the taxi to the airport seeing as downtown is farther. To save money I booked downtown but I didnt really save... so yea California is good if you just doing downtown

Rated 3 out of 5 by Brittnee Nice price
It is an appealing price to pay for a hotel that is very close to Freemont. however that's about all it has going for it. The customer service was awful they all act like you are disrupting their day, and that includes when your checking in. I had to ask to get the free play and buffet that came with the room and the worker just grabbed the papers handed them to me and stared, didn't even explain how to use them. Now to the room, my sink did not drain. I didn't call until the morning after I arrived and all she said was "you had a do not disturb sign up so what do you want me to do" I removed the sign and left so I wouldn't have to deal with whoever came to fix it. After that the toilet broke, the tub takes 10 mins to drain and you can hear every little noise around you. I normally don't write reviews but people should be warned. If you stay don't expect friendly staff or a great quality room. I guess you get what you pay for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Littleotto Good location for access to Worls Market Center
Was in town for an event at World Market Center and booked at the California. Was only a 15 minute walk to the World Market Center, and 1 short block to Freemont Street, so that was very positive. Breakfast was included, and was a very good buffet over in the Main Street Station Casino. Lots of tasty options! Hotel lobby and casino areas were very smoky.....did not smell good, felt bad for staff that need to work in that environment day after day. No free wifi which seems difficult to imagine in this day and age. The cost to access wifi? $10/ day.
Had booked a king room, but got 2 doubles upon check in. Room was very average, and floor needed vacuuming, which was done promptly the next morning when I asked a room cleaner to vacuum the carpet, and clean the hair from the bathroom floor. TV channel options limited. Overall, I would like to see some room upgrades and wifi provided at no charge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by daveg bad bed
The bed was very broken down and the room was very noise. The second room that I reserved for my son and grandson was dirty. It had dirt and hair on one of the shelfs in the bathroom. Our room was a least clean. I guess it was just ok but I'm not sure I would choose it again. The service was very average at best in all of the eating areas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Vegasfun20000726 Good price but outdated
The east tower rooms were in need of repair. The west tower room was much better and bigger. It is a great location and decent motel. Customer service could have been better.
