North Las Vegas, Nevada
Reviewed 28 February 2016

I had made reservations for 2 rooms for the weekend. We were greated at reception with such warmth and asked the receptionist if we can have connecting rooms. She accommodated us with no problems. She even put us on the first floor because my mom and sister were on walkers. Large, clean and quiet rooms. The breakfast was simple, but...

Fair condition. Breakfast was so so. I got a lot of bug bites. Price was good enough. Not much competition in the area. Parking was pretty limited. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would find an alternative next time.

We again were pleasantly surprised by a local motel. Room was large. Had everything we needed, great rate and breakfast that included scrambled eggs and sausage. Definitely would stay again. Our first room smelled like cigarette smoke so they immediately moved us to another room and we would give front desk a thumbs up for being accommodating with a smile.

The cleanest and cheapest hotel we stayed at on our cross country trip from North Carolina to Calidfornia. The staff was very hospitable and breakfast was delish. I would definitely stay here again if given the opportunity.

There are a few hotels in town, and my wife talked me in to going for this hotel due to the price. It was about half the cost of the Best Western, and we were arriving at 1:00am on our drive to Las Vegas. She said, "its just a bed to get some sleep. Why spend a lot on the...

Very cheap hotel with breakfast. The heater was a little bit noisy. We were at the breakfast 15 minutes before closing time, there was not much food left. Room was clean. Well situated hotel on the way to Death Valley.

Scottsdale, Arizona
Reviewed 7 February 2016 via mobile

We slept here last night en route. I doubt you can find another hotel/motel that compares for what California Inn charges. We thought the room & bathroom were good sizes and clean (my top priority), the bed and TV fine, and the staff helpful & accommodating. There were ample choices for breakfast. Good location for highway and restaurants.
