Accommodations in California

Places to stay in California cater for a wide range of tastes and budgets. In the cities, you’ll find quaint boutique properties, large modern hotels and simple motel-style options. The coast is lined with characterful B&Bs and luxurious retreats with panoramic ocean views.

The national parks have a more limited choice as location rules over service and amenities, but there are higher-end options outside the park boundaries if you don’t mind a little extra driving. Our specialists can recommend accommodation to stay in California to suit your preferences and your budget.
