“Nice Place”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We visited Las Vegas during Memorial Day weekend. We played in this casino at least a couple of hours each day. The dealers were very friendly and funny. The Redwood Grill has amazing Steaks for a low price. We stayed on Fremont Street so I cannot speak for the hotel rooms here.

“Mother's Day getaway”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

My mother and I decided we needed a quick getaway. Very last minute. We wanted the downtown Vegas experience and we decided on the california. Never regret it! Although it is a little dated the room was clean, the noise level was minimal and the staff are great. They are friendly and accomodating! We had a great night sleep and we were up early and feeling great! Since we booked last minute we didn't get a non smoking room However, the room hardly smelled like smoke so we where satisfied. Thumbs up to the staff. We had a great time and it will not be the last time we stay there!!! Guaranteed!!!!

“Excellent cafe for breakfast”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

My wife and I were surprised by the large crowd of retirees so early in the morning; however, the delicious plates and cheerful staff provided ample reasons for the crowds. Classic diner fares at the greasy best. The elders knew what they were doing.

Ist time to the California hotel. I was not sure what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised.

“Very friendly staff, clean rooms, $5 blackjack tables and very reasonable hotel rates.”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

My wife and I have been to Vegas over a dozen times and have stayed at many hotels (both on the strip and downtown) and “The Cal” is now our favorite place to stay.

Positives: Very friendly staff, clean rooms (The entire casino is clean), $5 blackjack tables and very reasonable hotel rates.

A few downsides: Not happy about paying $9.99 a day for Wi-Fi (however it’s a common way for hotels to make extra revenue) and the casino area might be due to for some updates soon.

Can’t wait to be back at “The Cal” next year!
