Positive Reviews

Great stop over location

With plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance, the California Inn was seen as a great place to stay when traveling on Route 66 and visiting nearby attractions such as Calico Ghost Town. Furthermore, the ample on-site parking further accentuated this aspect for many past guests.

Friendly staff happy to help

The staff members working at the California Inn were typically praised by former guests. As well as a welcoming and sociable attitude, the motel's personnel were considered to be very obliging and open to dealing with all manner of requests.

Negative Reviews

Showing its age in areas

Despite being modernized in certain areas, some former visitors were critical about the supposedly outdated nature of the California Inn. For example, it has been claimed that the furnishings and décor of the rooms were past their best.

Breakfast a mixed bag

Although it is one of its key selling points and was well received for the most part, a notable amount of past guests were dissatisfied with the quality and variety of the motel's complimentary breakfast offering.

Lack of room soundproofing

Whilst the area of the California Inn was generally considered to be quiet and peaceful, bothersome noise has still proven to be an issue on occasion. Previous visitors have noted that the soundproofing of the rooms was not the best in keeping out the noise of others staying at the motel.
