My family and I stayed here for a whole week (week of July 4th) and found it delightful! We've stayed at Don's Turf Motel before, but we were amazed at their rooms! They have been upgraded since our previous stay a couple of years ago. We had to be out of our home while work was being done and this... More

After reading other reviews, I decided to give this place a try. I'm glad I did. It ain't fancy! But, it is clean, quiet and inexpensive. Since I work in the area but live out of the area, I needed a clean, quiet and economical place to stay 3 or 4 nights a week. This place works out ok. No... More

We stayed at Don's Turf on 8/23 & 8/24. We were visiting Los Al (from Washington State) for the horserace meet and to celebrate my father's 75th birthday. We used to stay at Don's Turf when I was growing up (in the 1970s and 1980s), but in the late-80's it felt into disrepair. We hadn't stayed since, but decided to... More

Very clean, low cost, extremely quiet, and friendly staff. Good place for sleeping and resting. A no frills small motel. The pool is very clean and sparkling clear. About 1-2 miles down the road is restaurants and shopping places and grocery stores.

This hotel had lots of good reviews, the price was right and was near where we needed to be so we decided to give it a try. This in not a fancy resort hotel obviously but what it is a great value in a good sized, super clean and quiet room. Perfect if you have other things to do and... More

If you want a great inexpensive place to stay anywhere near Los Alamitos...this is it!! We were looking for something near the Race Track (only 1/2 mile away) We chose this motel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. Frankly if we had driven by, we probably wouldn't have stopped because the outside is pretty boring considering the really nice... More

My husband and I needed a clean, inexpensive place to lay our heads for a couple of days while we were in town for our nephew's graduation in Anaheim. I read all the good reviews here and we were definitely not disappointed. Great location, friendly front desk staff, and spotless rooms, all at an incredible price. Truly a unique place... More

I've now stayed at the Turf twice. For around fifty bucks, you get a clean bed, hot shower, pool access and free parking, TV and some rooms have microwaves and/or fridges. Just ask! My partner left his phone in the room when we left town--and a week later, we phoned the front desk and they saved his phone for us.... More

This motel is cleaner than any motel I have ever seen. The pool is sparkling clean and the gardens are well kept. I would rather stay hear than any other hotel down the street. I will recommend this place to everyone and will tell people about this place. I had to stay at this motel because my apartment was not... More
