  • Another old downtown Las Vegas hotel’s casino. There is both a variety of slots and table games. It connects with Main Street Station Casino by over the street walkway.  more »
  • We loved playing the blackjack table that has the cards face down, and the dealers are very nice, super!  more »
  • For the most part, decent casino floor considering it is downtown. Ton of video poker slots, was disappointed on the amount of higher denom slot machines though. Not too loud at night time, it does ge...  more »

  • I love visiting the California Hotel. It always feels safe and comforting. The staff is helpful and happy. They really know how to go above and beyond to treat each guest as ohana workout making you feel like a"customer." Great food and amenities. Love the vibe here! Always cheerful and positive. The rooms are updated, clean, and comfortable. Hot showers, huge TV, and big, clean comfy beds! ☺️ I will be back several times per year as always.
  • This was our first time staying off the strip in Vegas but we planned our trip during CES so everything was expensive but we got a room at the California Hotel at an excellent rate. They have a big parking garage and its free for guests. Check in was pretty simple but they had issues processing American Express and Discover for some reason even though they say its accepted. The room was excellent. Spacious, clean, and modern. Huge LED TV. Its probably same as a room in a 5 or 4 star hotel. Very nice. There are not many cons. If I had to pick on something it would probably be the music and noise that you can hear from Fremont street until 1 AM. Also the Market Street cafe was like a cheap cafeteria and the servers were not very attentive. Overall this is a very good hotel outside of the strip. We had a car and the drive to strip was a breeze. I would definitely consider staying here again and recommend this place to others.
  • We stopped here just to grab the graveyard special of oxtail soup at the Market Street Cafe (11pm-4am, if I remember correctly). So worth it! The hotel and the restaurant are typical for the downtown area (not as new as the strip but homey). We sat at the bar hoping for quicker service. Took a little longer than I would have hoped for the server to come and take our order but at least the food didn't take long to be served once we did. Alcohol not served in restaurant but they'll order you a drink from the bar and they'll bring it to you. All in all, definitely not glitzy but the food speaks for itself. The oxtail soup was a bit on the greasy side but we're in Sin City, so screw it! But the meat... The meat! Each huge piece of tail bone had so much meat, I wondered how big this ox must have been to have so much meat in the tail! And it just fell right off the bone. Good God! Going back for this with my wife, for sure. Perfect for hangovers. Don't know if I'd ever stay at the hotel but definitely coming for late night oxtail soup!
  • Parking was plentiful and affordable in Downtown Las Vegas. $5 on weekdays and $10 on weekends. They offer validation with a $10 purchase. The casino is one of the cleaner and nicer ones in downtown. The bathroom was very clean. I will consider eating/staying there next time I visit downtown.
  • Friendly staff. Clean room. They gave me a non-smoking room, but it still had hints of cigarettes. In-room safe and refrigerator worked great. Soap, shampoo, conditioner and moisturizer in the bathroom. Toilet is squeezed next to shower. Very cramp. Wouldn't keep towels on shower door handle because the pressure assisted toilet creates a lot of spray. Didn't replace plastic bag for ice bucket. Didn't tuck in the bedsheet under the mattress on one side the bed. Close to Fremont Experience. Can be a little noisy. Mob Museum is 2 to 3 blocks away. Free parking. No resort fees. Connected to Main Street Casino and Hotel via enclosed bridge.

Where to stay in Las Vegas

Most Las Vegas hotels increase their room rates on the weekends, so if you have a flexible schedule, avoid Fridays and Saturdays and take advantage of package deals that include shows, meals, and gambling coupons. Remember also that if you stay at any one of the lively casino hotels, you may not be able to get a good night's sleep for the duration of your trip. If you come to Vegas to stay but not necessarily play, try one of the non-gaming hotels or explore the quieter areas surrounding the city.
