Great value! No frills but clean and comfortable. Wi-Fi was rated as not secure by Google but it wasn't an issue since we didn't any online banking or anything. Breakfast was standard fare, not exceptional. But the room rate was very reasonable!

Me and a friend stayed at the California Inn for 1 night on the journey from LA to Las Vegas, we arrived around 10pm and were still greeted by a friendly receptionist, we got to the room which was of a good standard for the price we paid!

This place always has been a great value for the money; recent, and delightful, refurbishment has made it even better. Room is very comfortable, bed especially, work table with outlet is great, and VERY comfortable reading chair (needs better lighting for reading, though). Room has everything a traveler needs: coffee, microwave, refrigerator, and good towels to boot.

Barstow has lots of motels to choose from, and some seem a little dated. I'm sure when Route 66 was in it's prime they were first rate. The California Inn is of more recent vintage, conveniently located and within walking distance of a number of restaurants. Clean, quiet and with a microwave and frig, it was all we needed. Can't...

Loved the place, it is such a comfortable and peaceful town my wife fell asleep by the pool. I loved the security of the motel and I was able to unload the car from the sliding glass door that you have to open from inside the room. We were wore out by the time we left Barstow we had to... More

Very nice property. For a budget property the value is all there and the rooms were clean. The breakfast was minimal but nice when you have a long drive ahead. The staff were fine I didn't find them rude, just inn staff. I would definitely stay here again.

I stopped here on my way to L.A. on Route 66. Previous hotels on the route had been unimpressive so my expectations were not high, however, from the polite and helpful receptionist to the spacious, clean and comfortable room, the California Inn was truly excellent. I would certainly stay there again.
