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....

We had a double room for two adults and one child. The room was very clean, the facilities were good and the breakfast not bad (it was free so we weren't too fussy). Nice pool area and free parking. Overall a good experience!

Great value for money and very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. Breakfast is basic but given the price, perfectly adequate. I'll stay here again if the need ever arises.

The hotel is right off the highway which is super convenient! The front desk is super friendly as we arrived at 03:00am. Fast check in. Clean room! Great breakfast. The ladies kept the breakfast items stocked over and over and over!

Would highly recommend this hotel. It is a very nice looking and well maintained hotel. There are good restaurants located within walking distance. Easy on and off the freeway. The hotel was quiet, no traffic noise.

We're just completing a 130-day 21,000 mile road trip visiting 48 states. We've stayed in over 100 motels. What we liked: Price! The location is easily accessible to Interstate 15. Spacious room. Clean and fresh. Mini fridge and microwave. TV service included a guide so you could select what you want to watch from many options. Temperature control was good....

Well located between Death Valley and LA - breakfast was included and was enjoyable - good size rooms - good TV - room was away from main road and pretty quiet - Barstow railway station is worth a visit whilst here.
