Prescott, Arizona
Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Room was large and clean. Furnished with everything you need for a short stay, including a comfortable chair, frig and microwave. Breakfast was awful. No meat. Eggs were not edible. Only 2 yogurts left. Room was a good value but skip the breakfast.

When looking at the price of places in Barstow - this is inexpensive, clean and provides breakfast. The bed was not that comfortable (hard) and the noise level was a little higher than expected. The breakfast was okay. Customer service was great.

Super nice view of the room and enjoyable quietness. The room is very large. I booked one family room for 4 persons and the room contains three beds, two queen (or king sized, which i am not sure) and also one single bed, which is very surprising. The room has french sash and you could get out through the window...

It´s a nice motel, with good breakfast and well located in the Barstow´s main avenue. It was clean and the room and the bed were comfortable enough for spending the night in a convenient stop between Los Angeles and the Death Valley

The California Inn is a solid, good place to stay. The place is kept tidy and in good repair, even some flowers outside to show it's civilized, and the staff is friendly. We, 2 retired folks, had a good night's sleep, good beds and blankets to suit everyone, clean shower and very good breakfast included in the low price. The...

This is my second time at California Inn. A great value for a room and breakfast for 6 of us. However, this time the room we go was dated. And the breakfast was limited. There was no waffle machine or yogurt. Secure building as you need a keycard to enter the building with rooms. Motel is close to the freeway....
