This hotel had 2 1/2 stars and was over by at least 2 stars!! The rooms were tiny and dirty and poor quality beds! The bathrooms were dirty and moldy in the cracks and the toilet had a slow leak! The people hanging around the outside were a little suspicious! I didn't do enough research, I suggest you STAY AWAY!!!!

Thank Grammy J

My boyfriend and I came to LA for a week for a vacation and the place that we were staying before we got to key inn didn't work out and while being tight on money I searched places with a AAA discount and came across key inn. The front desk staff was very nice and easy to work with. We... More

Decent sized rooms, however despite the no smoking in rooms signs a very strong smell of Smoke in my room. Also a smell of Urine in the corridor outside the room. Also combined bath/shower heavily scratched and rust marks around drain. Towels heavily used, and stained. In short you get what you pay for.

....have no other choice! I was here once in the mid- 80's, and it was an okay little motel. No more! While the access to freeway was nice, the back parking lot reeked of sour alcohol, and stale urine. Children and teens lounge around, and on, the stairwells. Sidewalks need a good cleaning, and the whole place could use a... More

This hotel seems like it's trying to improve by updating the rooms. I'll give them credit for that. The room design is not bad and it seemed pretty clean except for smelling like cigarettes. For the price compared to other hotels in the area, I think this place is a good value for what they charge. There seemed to be... More

Horrible hotel glad I was only in it to sleep. Nothing good to say about it , the non smoking room smelled of smoke. The shower was cracked and chipping away the shower head was full of lime and rusty. Feet got dirty walking in the carpet this place is in need of some renovations.

Older motel with good amenities like a refrigerator. Good beds. Wonderful landscaping to look out upon. Efficient front-desk staff person upon check-in. We booked last minute looking for places in Orange County $100 or less.

We come to Tustin every year the weekend after Thanksgiving. We came and stayed here. It was very misleading. We asked for non smoking room, but we got a room that smelled very smokey. When I tried to let someone know we were told no other rooms available. The room was small, smelley, carpet was fithy and worn. I would... More
