The only redeeming factor in our stay there was the location. Of the two elevators, one was out of service (apparently for months) and the other one was extremely slow, taking 18 seconds to open on each floor. This lone elevator serviced 18 floors and gave me the impression of it might quit at any time. Additionally there was a sign on the stairs saying “For emergency fire use only.” Talk about having a trapped feeling. The Cal Neva's rooms show obvious neglect in maintenance; there were holes in the bathroom door, flooring coming up in the bathroom, faucets that barely functioned and a broken chair at the desk near the bed. In all it was not a good experience and I will never stay there again and do not recommend that anyone else stays there either. The Cal Neva should use some of their profits and maintain or better yet update their stinking hotel.
Sheets made me itch. Carpet was really dirty. Bathroom doesn't flush properly. TV needs upgrade. Smelled really bad. Light bulbs were disgusting and a couple weren't working. Elevator is outdated and feels like it's gonna break on you.
