breakfast options were sad, very noisy throughout the night, smelled like cigarette smoke, and lots of stray cats around the building :( they should be put in an animal shelter to stay warm during the cold winter months
Convenient location with cheerful staff.
Room a little dated but good value
Tired of hotel chains
California in was a refreshing break from the bland uniformity of the corporate chains. It has a personality - and a very sweet on at that. Could ask for more considering the price of my stay.
Great Stay on a Budget
For the price you can’t beat it. Great size rooms, good breakfast, excellent location with a delicious Italian restaurant across the way (Firehouse), and very few complaints to be had!
Would like to have had a dairy creamer for coffee. (Dry creamer doesn’t cut it). Bathrooms could use a fan.
Lighting was funky, with sensor-switches that didn't work.
Right off the freeway. Big parking lot for my truck, good size pool. Friendly staff
The ac unit was falling apart and so loud! The "deluxe" breakfast was not good at all. Reminded me of gas station food.
We visited the hotel for only one night but we were very comfortable and enjoyed the facility. The breakfast was very popular and very good. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. The beds were very comfortable. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to try out the swimming pool. Would come back for another stay.
The tub had an invisible leak and made the carpet outside the bathroom soggy. I reported it and it looks like they were going to fix it right away.
Decent for the price
Friendly staff, convenient to the highway, breakfast provided
Uncomfortable beds, very old blankets with holes
