We've stayed at our share of cheap motels, and this one was probably one of the worst. First of it's in the middle of no where down what looks like a residential street. We payed extra for a spa tub room that was non smoking at the room still reeked of smoke cigarette burns everywhere. We left to grab something to eat and when we got back our key card didn't work. The towels are rough and look ancient. On Saturday morning bright and early the grounds keeper was using the lawn mower and leaf blower right outside our room. The bed was comfy so it would've been nice to sleep in. No blankets on the bed luckily I brought my own. Needless to say we won't be returning!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2010

We were visiting family in La Habra and had always stayed at the Embassy Suites in Brea. But on this trip, we didn't need a big room since, for once, we weren't traveling with our teenage sons, who especially like to stay in Brea. On the advice from an in-law, we checked out the Harbor Inn. The property itself is dated, but the rooms are newly updated, clean and very functional, with comfortable beds, fridge and microwave. Free Wi-Fi, too. Far nicer than any Motel 6 for the same price (not to mention a quarter of the price of Embassy Suites). The business is family-run - nice folks.

They also have some larger suites with full kitchenettes, which might come in handy for us during our holiday visits.

We're returning there next week for another visit, this time with our boys. While they won't get to have a big breakfast in the room and chips and soda in the afternoon, we'll be saving half the money while having separate rooms and bathrooms. There are lots of restaurants a block or two away, and a small grocery right around the corner. Our boys can get their chips and soda there. And we'll be spending the saved money at Disneyland, which is a 20 minute, straight shot down Harbor Blvd. We're looking forward to it!
