Thanks to other travelers and their reviews we stayed here. It was pretty nice. Its a little older and outdated, but the bed was cumfy. You cannot smoke in hotels in CA, but that was ok our room had a balcony and it was okay that we went out there. If we're ever in this area, will definitely stay here...

Be aware that once you book this place THERE IS NO WAY TO GET A REFUND!! We got stung in January by this policy when we were given an un-renovated room after reading the reviews about a FULLY RENOVATED MOTEL. We arrived about 4:00 pm to find our room was very old looking with a bedspread that looked like it...

It was our decision to stay overnight at a halfway point to Vegas. We decided that California Inn was a good bet based on the reviews of other travelers. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived that evening and found the lobby well lit and inviting. The night clerk was very friendly even though it was about 10:00 pm and...

For your basic hotel room, this is a solid choice. The rooms are clean, larger than average, and everything works. Beds are comfy. Nothing fancy in terms of decor, but the carpets look fairly new. Can't comment on the breakfast, because we went to IHOP which is right next door!

Great for family with dog! Loved this place as it served my family with exactly what we needed to break up a long two days of traveling. Middle of town near gas/food. Staff was extremly nice and helpful.

Funky, dated, but clean and comfortable, the California Inn is our go-to hotel in Barstow. Our room had a brand new air conditioner. We like the location for its proximity to Dinapoli's. The hotel has a decent breakfast selection included in the price. The staff here are very nice.

This motel represents excellent value for money. Large well equipped rooms, pool, free complimentary breakfast, free wifi and parking. Room was very clean and free TV choices were excellent. Great for a quick stop off on the way back to Vegas. Highly recommended.
