"Best place in town"

05/10/2018

On our way to Death Valley we stayed here. The hotel is definitely the nicest place in this tiny town. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. They are also pet friendly for a fee. I would definitely stay here again.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our property following your recent stay. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay here and had a good time! We would love to welcome you back again and again! Best wishes, Hotel Management.

"Comfortable room, Skimpy breakfast"

4
01/10/2018

We stayed at this hotel during Wasteland Weekend. Our room was very clean, no weird stains or smells. The room was very quiet. The king bed was comfortable and we appreciated the five pillows (we are both pillow hogs). The flat screen TV was nice, and the remote worked perfectly. The white towels in the bathroom were clean and soft.The only shortcoming was the free breakfast, which ran out of hot food items on both mornings of our stay. The hostess was clearly working as hard as she could but she was overwhelmed by the number of guests. The hotel should should schedule additional help during times of high occupancy.

GuestXperienceTeam, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western California City Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Dear Kathryn, We must apologize for the fact that our breakfast offerings were not fully replenished for the duration of the breakfast period, and we will ensure that our team knows that all items should be refreshed until the end of the service time. We will also ensure that more staff are working during this period. We hope that you might consider staying with us again and that you will enjoy a better stay on the occasion of your next visit. Best wishes, Hotel Management

Great overall stay here, front desk & breakfast personnel were very courteous and helpful. Great hot & cold breakfast, especially since I was lactose intolerant. They had Silk milk for my cereal. They only need to improve their housekeeping because they kept on "Not" replenishing my towels, soaps, shower mat.

Very big but very quiet hotel with swimming pool. Room was spacious and clean, although air conditioning was noisy. Mariah on reception was very helpful - helped order a takeaway from Dimaggio's Pizzeria.

"Friendly stay if you are visiting Death Valley"

31/07/2018

If you are visiting Death Valley (South entrance) - after a day at Sequoia Park for instance - this Best Western is an interest option. Very friendly and helpful staff, big rooms with 2 queen size beds, small but clear water pool, ok breakfast with waffle and pancake machines, fruits ... In the evening you can see night owls flying around the roof lights. The only issue is the noise of the air conditioning, so if you don't mind sleeping in a warm room, you will get a good sleep.

"Friendly Best Western"

29/06/2018

We had to make a stop on our way up to Mammoth and stumbled into this hotel at 9 pm. Staff is really super friendly and helpful. At 9 am the night manager shows us several different rooms to be able to accommodate our family in the best possible way. At the breakfast buffet they rearranged the tables for us so that we could watch the World Cup. Great place. Clean and friendly.

"Great hotel for film crew!"

5
15/06/2018

I put my film crew of 50+ people at this hotel for 4 days, and I have to say that they were beyond accommodating. Nimisha, and her staff bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed. Handling all of our last minute changes and requests with grace! The rooms were PLENTY spacious and the ACs were very cold, which is great for a hotel in the 105+ degree desert. There is plenty of parking, very clean lobby, decent breakfast in the morning, and really good wifi. I'd not only recommend this hotel for Film Crews/Large Groups, but anyone who is passing through California City!

21/05/2018

The hotel was very clean as was the room, The walls are paper thin and you can hear noises from everywhere, If your a light sleeper, not good. The eggs for breakfast could have been real, they looked like they were out of a box.

"Met our needs"

13/05/2018

This city only has one motel however they don't act like the only place in town. The service staff was excellent and cheerful and the hot breakfast was normal for this class. The room was small. They may have bigger and if you are looking for more room would need to look a little closer. Since we were here to visit somebody it worked find and didn't need a lot of room to hang out.

"Nice hotel in a bad location"

12/02/2018

If for some odd reason you have to spend the night in California city, your options are very limited but this hotel is a surprisingly nice place to stay overnight. The furnishings in the room were top quality, the customer service was friendly and the bed was comfortable, BUT the negatives are very poor sound-proofing and almost nothing to do in the immediate area, and the breakfast was average at best. Also, one strange thing was that this was the first hotel I have ever stayed at where I could not run the room fan to drown out the noisy neighbors. You can turn the A/C or heat on but no fan option. Luckily I had a white noise generator app so just ran that and slept good. If you are passing thru the area and need a place to stay overnight, this hotel is a good choice.

"Pleasantly surprised "

4
04/01/2018

I certainly wasn't expecting a lot since we were going to the desert but was pleasantly surprised. I found the staff to be friendly and the hotel room to be clean. One complain't I have about the suite is it is advertised as a queen bed with a pull out couch. The pull out couch is a twin bed. I placed our 11 and 10 year old on it and kissed them good night. My husband and I had a visitor who couldn't sleep in the middle of the night and ended up in bed with us. Next time I would request a rollaway. Other than that the room did the job. I was surprised there were 2 bathrooms in the suite. The other issue I had with the hotel although it was not the hotels problem but the guests was the parking situation. Some selfish people felt the need to park their trucks and trailers with dirt bikes in them parallel taking up to 4 spots leaving those with a regular vehicle no place to park. There were other places these people could have easily parked their trucks and trailers since they have the means to go over a curb unlike a minivan. If visiting Cal City again I would have no problem staying here again.

"Annual trip to this property"

03/01/2018

come here every Thanksgiving. We continue to pay the constant price hikes because it is the only location in town. The rest of our family stays at our relative's home or at another hotel in Mojave. They feel the extra 30 minute drive is worth the better price. We will continue to use the facility but we would like the rest of our family to stay here as well.It would be nice if this hotel could compete in price with the best western in Mojave and elsewhere.The breakfast is pretty good and the rooms are well maintained.

GuestXperienceTeam, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western California City Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Dear Mike, We love hearing back from returning guests. It makes us feel like we are doing something right! We constantly review our prices to ensure we remain competitive for the area and affordable for our guests. We would love to host your extended family and it would be 'our' pleasure to do so. We look forward to your next visit with us. Thank you for your business and your review. We really appreciate both. Best wishes, Hotel Management.

"Pleasantly Surprised for a Best Western"

03/01/2018

We normally stay at 5 star chains and had to stay at the Best Western. Did much research and looked at pictures was pleasantly surprised at the reviews and pictures submitted so it helped us to make a choice. The room is nice not 5 stars but nicely appointed same with the bathroom. We have experience 2 occasions when the room was not serviced. We bring our own cleaning supplies and carry extra sheets and blankets. Only thing I will complain about is the AC/heating unit in room is very loud when it kicks in. Front desk staff have been very accommodating on each time we needed assistance. Here visiting friends.

"Don't plan on using the sofa bed"

3
29/12/2017

We had a king room with a sofa “bed”, the mattress was a glorified blanket. My 60 lb son was basically laying on metal bars. Front desk told me everyone knows that sofa beds are this way and I shouldn't have expected it to be serviceable as a bed. My response to this is that if the hotel markets the couch as a sofa bed, it should serve the purpose of a bed, not a medieval torture device. I was grudgingly provided with a rollaway mattress to add extra padding, and expected to be grateful that I wasn't charged the normal extra fee for the mattress. During this whole exchange, the front desk person spoke to me rudely and disrespectfully. The king bed was comfortable and the room was clean.

GuestXperienceTeam, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western California City Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Dear Angela, We were so disappointed to read your review, and to hear about the issue regarding your sofa bed. We apologize that the bed was not to your son's satisfaction and we hope that the rollaway mattress helped him have a restful nights sleep. We apologize profusely for any rudeness displayed by our staff and this matter will be investigated further with the team members concerned. We would love the opportunity to redeem ourselves with you, should you choose to stay with us again. Best wishes, Hotel Management.

The hotel was clean. The rooms were clean. I agree with one of the previous guests, bring pillow cases or ask for them. T hey were more than happy to bring me extras. The beds were comfortable and our view was pretty. There was a small issue with our reservations, no fault of the hotel. The front desk employees went above and beyond to try every means to get this issue settled so we did not have to drive 3 hours back home. And it was settled to the satisfaction of all, and we are very grateful they were so accommodating. I also was surprised by the very nice breakfast in such an out of the way Best Western.

"Scary Elevator"

13/11/2017

Our room was on the second floor so we had to ride the elevator. The first day we arrived we discovered some of the elevator buttons did not work. If we wanted to go down from the second floor to the first floor we had to push the up button to bring the elevator. There were two elevators and only one was working the four days we stayed. One time we got on the elevator on the second floor and pushed the first-floor button. The elevator door shut but the elevator did not go anywhere. After several attempts, we decided to take the stairs and report the problem to the staff. There was supposed to be a repairman working on the elevator but no one was able to locate him. Finally, we were told he had left the premises.

Dear Sylvia, We were so sorry to hear about the issues you faced during your time with us. Our elevator is being repaired as we speak and we are so sorry that this marred you stay with us.

This is a surprising gem in California City. Comfortable, well-situated rooms. I would not stay on the first floor facing the street again - was loud, and the hallway is echoey. But otherwise, surprisingly lovely and good, strong coffee for breakfast in the breakfast room.

"Nice Surprise in a Desert City"

29/08/2017

Came out to California City to visit my son who is in the military and stayed for a week. He's not thrilled about California City and didn't have much positive to say about this hotel. I looked at the pictures online and took a chance and boy am I glad I did. The Front Desk staff was absolutely great! The hotel is well maintained, the rooms were clean and updated and the pool was a nice touch on a hot and dry 113 degree day. The breakfast is very good for a small chain hotel in the middle of nowhere and I greatly appreciated the attentiveness of the people responsible for preparing breakfast. They tried to accommodate my every request and they did!! I brought my son over to the hotel to see the room and he was floored!

We needed a local place to stay for a week while we visited family in town. This hotel was such a blessing. Having grown up in Cal City, I know that without this hotel, we would have had to stay in Mojave or Tehachapi, and it would have cut down the family time we had. The breakfast service and pool were wonderful for our family, and the room was nice and spacious.

I'm only here for one night. Nice and clean hotel.. It's in a quiet location and only a 20 min drive to Edwards AFB. I will definitely book here again the next time I'm at Edwards AFB. Although there is not much to do around here, there is a Dollar Market, McDonalds and you can have pizza delivered. Overall, it's worth it!

02/08/2017

Due to an air condition problem I needed a place to spend a night in California City. The ONLY Hotel / Motel is this one. I explained the situation to the clerk and he said no problem $105.62 for the least expensive room. About 2 hours later my wife called and asked if I was staying in the Pent House. It seems that the clerk thought it would be a good idea to charge me a $100.00 deposit on my credit card. When I asked him why he didn't tell me at check in he said it was only for "incidentals". I asked him what I could possibly charge to my room and he didn't have an answer. He said the charge would come off my bill "in a day or so". Well here it is Wednesday and my card is still showing the $100.00 charge. The room was nice. Clean and tidy. But the way the hotel does business is a sure 1 star deal. So if you are stuck in California City and need to spend the night drive to Mojave or Rosemond. Incidentally, did I mention I'm never coming back?

GuestXperienceTeam, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western California City Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Hi George, We appreciate your feedback, thank you. Like most hotels throughout the U.S., and indeed the world, we take a security deposit to cover any incidental charges such as telephone or food and drink items. The money is not actually placed in our account; there is simply a "hold" placed on the amount, which is released at checkout. We are sorry that you are waiting for your deposit to be refunded to you, but unfortunately, it can take some banks a few days to release this money into the client's account. There is nothing that we, the hotel, can do to speed this process up, unfortunately, and we apologize that this was not made clearer to you. Best wishes, Hotel Management

24/06/2017

Stayed here because I was on the way through, and read about California City online a long time ago. Really neat place, although probably not for everyone due to the distance from the main road. The hotel was pretty standard for a new Best Western. Liked the view. My room was new and clean. Extremely minor negative: I could tell the walls were quite thin, a suspicion confirmed in the morning, when people were walking through the halls. Fairly major complaint: The smell. The whole hallway and room smelled extremely of some strong foul bitter smell. No idea what that was. All in all it was good and getting to see California City made it well worth it. Would probably stay here again.

The cleanliness, modernism, and upkeep of this hotel distinguish the Best Western in Cal City at the very get-go from its regional counterparts.

This is the most amazing stay I've had with vest western yet. My bf and I stopped here on our way back from Bishop, but we think we might make the travel back to California city just for the hotel! The city is a bit ghetto but it was very safe at this location. Rooms are spacious and incredibly clean. The tub was fantastic!! Incredibly comfortable and conveniently located. You'd think with such an emphasis on the tub, they wouldn't put much effort into the bathroom but the shower is absolutely stunning! Our room also had 2 mini fridges. I could go on and on. I mean it when I say that this is a perfect hotel escape. The only downside is the city where this is located, but even still, my bf and I are planning to come back for our own personal "spa getaway" because this place is pure luxury the second you step in.

11/04/2017

We booked based on Tripadvisor reviews and overall were not disappointed. Good sized rooms, comfortable beds, a quiet somewhat rural setting. On the negative side, the carpet in the common areas was tired (maybe carpet in the elevator is not the best idea?) in need of a shampooing, etc. Interior noise was also an issue, in that one need increase the volume on the TV if a neighboring room is showering, etc, or the frequent door slams. California City itself left us underwhelmed, despite some attractions nearby such as Red Rock Canyon, the "city" has a depressed feel to it, spread out over several miles and no real business centers or attractive areas within the city. Next time, I'd avoid altogether and stay at Ridgecrest or Mojave.

26/10/2016

Carmil, Genesis, Anabel, Berta & Mr. Shawn were so patient & kind with our large group of 38 Kairos Prison Ministry volunteers. Best Western is such an oasis that we try to stop by to see them when we are just going for the 3 hr. monthly reunions at the prison & don't need a room. After giving it some thought I called Mr. Shawn today & booked a room for the instructional reunion at CCCF on Saturday Nov 5th so we can spend more time in CA City & will recommend doing the same for our entire 38 man volunteer team. Mr Shawn & his staff have become family. We really look forward to seeing them all each time we come to CA City as their warmth makes our visit much more like home. The complimentary breakfast sure helps our men get the early days started & the coffee is the best in CA City. We hope to see much more of them in the future for our biannual Kairos retreat weekends at CCCF.

29/09/2016

I was prepared for things to be at least a little shoddy, considering that this is the only hotel in town, and also fully booked for an event. However, I was very pleasantly surprised by how nothing was wrong at all. In fact, the staff were all pleasant, friendly, fast and efficient. No issues with the beds (comfy!) or the climate controls which I have encountered at some other mid-range hotels. Breakfast was decently stocked even toward "closing time". Housekeeping did not come in unless we called the front desk to request it (no door hanger signs?), which might be weird to some, but when we called, they were fast and thorough. I'm fully satisfied with my stay.

The hotel is new, so everything is still nice and fresh. The staff was friendly. Continental breakfast was available although I just had coffee. The walls are pretty thin, but I'm a deep sleeper so this didn't really bother me. Not really any other options if you want to stay in Cal City, so its a good stay. Didnt like paying $100 per night for a best western, but again, no options. My family has lived in this town for about 15 years and I've always slept on the couch during visits, so it was nice to get a room for me and my family this past visit.

"excellent desert base"

17/08/2016

Visited here for one night in February 2015 having driven from San Francisco, briefly stopping for lunch in Carmel. The journey was Trecherous! torrential rain/snow through the Tehachapi mountains and pitch black so we were very relieved to get here. It was extremely quiet, but the receptionist was very helpful. Unfortunately we were too late for food and all the local takeaways were closed so could only use the vending machines! The room though - wow. A full-on suite with 2 queen beds. It was the best room of our holiday, better than the room we had the next night at Luxor in Las Vegas. The bathroom too was lovely, everything was clean and felt new. Great big TV with a remote in a little net bag. We had a perfect nights sleep. The next day you appreciate how isolated this place is. It's a stunning location but there's truly hardly anything around. Desert and mountains - a Macdonalds a few gas stations and a supermarket - that's about it. It was a stunning place to wake up though having arrived at night in the pouring rain :) Breakfast was cool - make your own waffles etc with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal options, yogurt. All fine. And away we went on our way up towards Lone Pine (but peeling off through Death Valley) well rested and fed. Really lovely staff, reasonable price, SUPERB room, food fine, isolated but spectacular location - a real gem in the middle of nowhere and would make a great base for exploration of the Mojave region, or indeed - on the way Death Valley.

Always clean, always professional and courteous staff. Accommodating, good deal. Breakfast complete, helps to get the days started well. No problem too big for them to handle. Very nice outside and in, pool was perfect as well.

My review title is a little unkind but all of California City seems to be a series of isolated elements including this hotel at the far eastern end of town. It was a good place to stay on a visit to Edwards Airforce base. The room was comfortable, staff friendly and helpful, breakfast as expected and with a really efficient and useful guest laundry. The only downside is that there are no walking options to eat.

Shawn, Genesis, Carmil, Candace and the staff welcomed our large group of 36 volunteers when we visited for Kairos #2 April 21-24 and made us feel like family. The breakfast selection was a delight (eggs, salsa, jalapenos, bacon, sausage, cheese, toast, tortillas, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, blueberries, strawberries, bagels, cream cheese, muffins, waffles, bananas, apples & oranges...) and having it ready at 5:30 am (!!) along with plenty of good, hot coffee, flavored creamer, almond milk & orange juice really helped us get started each day. We can't wait to come back again for "God's Special Time" at California City Correctional Center in October . Thank you for your kindness! <@{{{}}><

Their full hot breakfast is great and very tasty. Nothing like have your own private jacuzzi in your room!! Great after a busy day! We've been there before and will return again!! Lots of things to see within easy distances! We used This Best Western as our home base and went to check out wild flowers in Red Rock Canyon, Elizabeth Lake, Cuddy Back (Fremont Peak), and extra stops include the Desert Tortoise Center, and Kern River!

This is the best hotel in town. Why? It is the ONLY hotel in town! But it is new, clean and fresh and the staff are very friendly. Very good breakfast. On your way there or after your stay, be sure to visit the Borax Visitor Center on H'way 58 just west of Boron. There is a museum there, a 20 mule team wagon with 20 mules (life size) and the open pit borax mine too. It is a gem.

"Very Good hotel , But don't come for their breakfast."

The breakfast was the most horrible experience I have experienced. Being that there were not a lot of places around to eat breakfast except a McDonald's, I thought choosing this hotel that had a breakfast would have been a great Choice and value. But I was extremely wrong in regards to the breakfast, it was horrible! The eggs seemed like they were made from powder and water. The sausage meat was some form of gray Dead flesh reconstituted with steam water. The taste was something I had never experienced and I quickly through it into the trash after one bite. The waffle maker, made beautiful looking waffles that tasted just like cardboard, and it would quickly disintegrate into sawdust once touched by a fork. The milk for the breakfast cereal was extremely warm. Breakfast is not that hard to get right, it just seems that this best Western has put zero effort into finding a vendor who can provide a normal wholesome breakfast made it from natural eggs, not powdered and fresh sausage meat not precooked and frozen for years and brought back to life with steam. The waffle batter mix could be of a better quality product. The milk canister could be kept on ice. This breakfast experience diminished my stay. I hope they get it right in the near future. Maybe they should eat it first, and have some quality control. If this is not too much to ask.

I absolutely loved everything about this hotel. I have stayed at this hotel four times now. They have a friendly staff, and great service. The staff here all go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. I intend on going back and would recommended this hotel to anyone. The hotel has clean rooms and main areas. The breakfast was really great as well. I absolutely adore the breakfast hostess Candace. She is really sweet and she exceeds all expectations. I enjoyed waking up early to a fresh breakfast and a big smile from Candace. Everyone there really makes you feel like you are at home.

This Best Western hotel made me feel welcome from the moment I came in. The room was clean modern looking room all which made for a nice stay. In the breakfast area, the staff was nice, helping me make my waffle. If I had any questions, which I had several the staff never seemed bothered by me, they were always polite. We picked this hotel because of its good rating and location, not too far from Red Rock Park where we wanted to visit, (Highly recommended to see by the way. There are also some ghost towns not too far away I read. There are some nice restaurants in this town too. We did not get to take a swim but the hotel also has a pool.

I have stayed at this hotel once a month for the past year and a half. The staff goes out of its way to help. They are friendly and cheerful and have a can-do attitude. The manager, Shawn, spent a chunk of time helping me get some grid paper printed out at the precise size I needed. Rooms are clean and well appointed. Not sure about the breakfast because I always carry my own when I travel anywhere. I highly recommend this Best Western.

My wife and I did not know what to expect in such a remote location and were very pleased to find a really nice, inexpensive hotel near our destination (Desert Tortoise refuge). The clerk at the counter was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the entire area. No complaints at all regarding our stay.

Stayed here for two nights, Christmas Eve and Christmas. Not many options in the area but this was a very convenient location for what we needed. The employees were friendly, the parking lot huge, and the lobby, halls and rooms clean. Although the room was clean I did see a cockroach in the bathroom the first night. The walls were a bit thin and we could hear people in the rooms next to us. Not much to do in the area but the few restaurants and things are not far from the hotel. Overall an alright stay for the price.

Visited California City and dropped by to check this hotel. This is a new development in recent time. The place is two story next to the Golf Course. You will not miss it as it is next to the only traffic signal lights. It looks newly constructed in the last year and a half.

The room was satisfactory and the staff were pleasant. My main complaint is the price of the rooms. We go there every year for Thanksgiving, and our room cost $40 more this year than last. The price is quite high for this type of facility, but since it is the only choice, I guess they can charge this type of price. Our bathroom door would not stay open unless we propped it open with furniture. These annual trips would be better if we didn't have to pay such high prices for a Best Western out in this desert city.

One day of my three night stay staff was in the room as the bed was made. However, the garbage from the bathroom was dumped into the toilet bowl, the sink was not cleaned, the garbage from the main room was not removed, the light in the bathroom was left on and the fan for the room was on high heat (the room was very hot when I arrived).

We stayed here for one night with short notice due to flooding in the area. This seems to be the only hotel in California City, and we were impressed with the quality of the hotel. Compared to other Best Westerns, the walls seemed better insulated to sound, although the hallways were noisy with people departing early in the morning. The sheets were a little pilly, but the bed was very comfortable.

Shawn & the entire staff are very warm & friendly. He worked extra hard to get our 34 men visiting Thurs 9/17 - Sun 9/20 for the very 1st Karios Prison Ministry retreat at California City Correctional Center & we were very happy we stayed at this Best Western Inn. Our volunteers come from LA, OC, SD, Victorville, Lompoc, Simi Valley, Hawthorne... we had private rooms, double queens & queen suites and we all agreed that this was a terrific choice. Our team of volunteers will be coming back in April/May of 2016 and look forward to another very peaceful weekend again! Thank you, Shawn!

If you only want a shower this is the place to stay if you do not mind the noise....thin walls...I personally would have preferred a quieter stay. The breakfast was very basic. I would have loved the comfort of the bed if I could have slept past the noise. I could here the people snoring in the room next to mine.

this hotel is very new and very clean with a welcoming decor and very comfortable bed, etc. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful; the breakfast had a great assortment of items, including waffles (made on the spot) and eggs made to order. Even though this is really the only place to stay in California City, it is a new and well-kept up place and I don't think I would stay anywhere else, even if there was an option to do so!

"Dessert Gem"

14/08/2015

There is really nothing out here, but all of a sudden, you're in this town with a golf course and several restaurants and then this hotel.... You don't have high hopes, but the rooms were great! Clean, roomy, modern, and a great place to stay if you are on business or pleasure. I would compare it to the Hampton Inns and Marriott Courtyards I usually stay in. The staff were pleasant and helpful, with good recommendations on the local dining... which is limited, but okay. Near the air force base, so I guess that's the reason everything is there in the middle of the dessert, but it's a wonderful place with good people and the area is awesomely beautiful, especially if you're from the south east coast and are used to seeing live oaks and spanish moss instead of dessert plants and hills.
