We stayed at the California hotel for 4 days and the hotel wasn't very nice and the staff was very unhelpful and rude. However the gambling was good and the breakfast buffet here is a great price for the quality of food !

I stopped in to pick up some items for a work friend of mine, and played a little on the slot machines. The casino is reminiscent of the old time casinos, with a high amount of Hawaiian clientele. I must admit, hands down that they have the cleanest bathrooms in town.

Admittedly, the remodel made a portion of the casino much nicer. The back part of the casino is still really ghetto. Somewhat smoky inside. This place has no character. Not sure why anybody comes here.

The renewal and facelift are reviving Cal Club in the heart of the city. Next door to Mainstreet casino. Caters to Hawaiian clientele. Two blocks from Freemont Street street show. This unique setting / show is worth the effort to experience and hang out. A few blocks from the Mob Museum. Redwood Steak House in the Casino is a perfect... More

My Mom and I stopped here to play a little on the slots before we drove back to Laughlin. We ate at the restaurant and got the prime rib special. Wow! It was as big as the plate. Very juicy and tender. The baked potato set it off nicely. Doing some renovations to the casino, but it was not interrupting... More

One of my more better and luckier trips! Got lucky on a few slots and table games. My boyfriend prefers blackjack. Video poker is fun and can kill a lot of time if you want to just sit and play. Table dealers are nice and friendly. Can't wait to go back!

This is one of the older hotel/casinos I have stayed at in Las Vegas. This place has an attraction for the Hawaiian's who visit Las Vegas. The front desk always seems to be busy. The first room had no air conditioning, and someone was going to check it out. 2 hours later same-thing. "New" room was given on the other... More
