We recently enjoyed our trip to the Cal and were most pleased to their recently remodeled West Tower rooms. The bathroom was spacious & had a modernized flair. The walk-in shower had glass sliding doors with a ventilation system which kept the steam from fogging up the mirror as it would in the old rooms. The commode took a bit...

This hotel was somewhat redone. Rooms were pretty average but clean. I had absolutely no view. The casino is pretty small but most downtown casinos are. It's fairly outdated with some machines still spitting out coins. I ate 1 restaurant that was pretty good. It's a little ways off of Fremont and it's a little sketchy getting to Fremont if...

Where to start? I stayed in the upgraded room and it was clean and quiet. The drinks at the bar were good. The staff was nice. The oxtails were fatty but good. I lost money but understandable. I lost my wallet and security found it. Outstanding! The only thing that ruined it for me was the reservation process. I booked...

The Cal is like a second home to me. It is such a familiar place. All of the service people are friendly & nice. They almost feel like family. I love the penny machines especially. Every time I visit there seems to be new ones! We celebrated my cousin's 83rd birthday at The Noodle Shop for lunch. The staff were...

The California Hotel & Casino in classic downtown Las Vegas is a fantastic bang for your buck! We stayed from Monday to Thursday for $36/night with No Resort Fees! We stayed in an older room (renovated rooms available with showers only) because we wanted a bathtub. It was just fine. Bright, clean and relatively quiet. Beds were comfortable, room was...

My wife and I stayed at the California Hotel 3-10-17 to 3-15-17. We stayed in the newly renovated room in the North Tower. The room size is the same as before however the finishes are first class. The bathroom is fully renovated and the tub has been taken out and a walk in shower was installed. Eating at the Market...

I lived in Hawaii for 12 years, so I stay at The Cal on my annual trip to Vegas. The Aloha spirit is live and well at The Cal, from the smiling customers, to the dealers and servers at the Cafe. Even the unrenovated rooms are fine. This past visit, we stayed at The Cal one night, then at Main...

My wife and i stay at the Main Street Station. We haven't stayed at the California for years, I understand that the rooms have been refurbished...it was past time. The casino area has also been improved...restrooms are a great improvement. I look forward to playing the coin video poker machines on the mezzanine...my money lasts longer. However, I would caution...

It was good value. They recently renovated one tower. The room was very nice and spacious. There is a mini refrigerator but no microwave. There are a lot of Hawaii people that stay there. They have a couple of family restaurants in the hotel, also a ice cream shop and a couple of little shops.

I came in on Vacations Hawaii so I didn't have to register. We stayed in the new tower, which is where the new renovations are. The Casino looks amazing! They have Texas Hold'em tables now that are open and only 1 Let it Ride table that is packed all the time. The RedWood Grill is awesome, but It's a bit...
