I chose to stay here on my last night of a SoCal trip. Bad choice! I picked the place because the price was right and it was in reasonable proximity to the airport and "Old Town" Tustin. The room smelled musty. The bathroom was a disaster. The water was lukewarm at best. The toilet barely flushed. There was no coffee... More

This place is one step behind Motel 6. The room smelled stuffy, bathroom not super clean but not too dirty. Dated room especially the bathroom. but served its purpose. It looked like people lived in the motel. For the price, there are better options in the area.

I have stayed at the motor lodge for the past 11/2 years, nearly once a month. Granted some of the beds are hard and left me hurting the next day but I found that you can always go to the owner (also manager) and he will make sure you are as happy as possible. Our non smoking room had been... More

Very inexpensive so if you want to save money, you can. Full size bed, felt like cardboard and padding was put on top of box springs, fairly hard. No alarm clock in room. There is a microwave and tiny reefer in the room. Extremely close to all freeways, and restaurants very close.

I've been at the Tustin Motor Lodge for two months and could not find a single thing to complain about over that long time period - management is competent and nice, room service is great and staff is very friendly. The place is quiet and clean and has good wireless internet access (never failed during the 2 month stay). The... More

The Tustin Motor Lodge in Tustin, CA is probably the best deal I've seen in quite a while, especially in Southern California. I had a bad experience there once before, but I decided to give it a shot as a last resort since I was in a bind. The management has changed, and the rooms have been refurnished (dark wood... More

Do all motels perpetuate the alleged stereotype as “TACKY” and “RUDE” establishments? Yes, only if you book a room at the Tustin Motor Lodge Motel. Not only is there the challenge of parking into compact-sized space (considered “guest parking”) but one would have to deal with the rude profiling from guest services. This “opened 24 hour” motel doesn’t require holding... More
