I stayed here last night on a business trip. The room was older but clean. There's a large flat screen TV, fridge, and microwave in the room. The WiFi is a bit slow. There are 7-8 restaurants nearby with a Denny's next door.

I had a lot of trouble with this place. Bugs, thugs, riffraff, meth heads and that wasn't the worst. The tv does not work and when speaking to the pretend manager Rocio I have come to find out she is a rude bitter lady with no respect or customer service. I think she should be fired. She curses and can't... More

I've been staying at the Key Inn for well over a year.The staff here is always friendly and courteous, and treat you like family. The rates are the best south of Anaheim, especially considering the rooms have 37" flat screen TV's. The rooms are clean, the landscape is beautiful, and there is a pool for both buildings.All in all, this... More

As you know everyone has their own opinion on hotels/motels and they are not always the same. Our experience at The Key Inn has always been a great one. The general manager Armando Robles is wonderful on making ours and maybe your stay a pleasant one. The staff are great! They always do their very best to accommodate your needs.... More

For Orange County, the rooms here are very inexpensive, but still fairly large and well kept. The location is so-so, and the rooms don't keep out a lot of the noise from people walking and talking in the outside corridor, but it does have convenient access to several restaurants and fast food places (I recommend the funnel cake place on...

OMG! This is a hidden jewel in Orange County! No frills just a super clean and decent room. Complimentary internet and parking and right off the freeway. My boyfriend and I were sold! Definitely the place to stay if ever in the OC!

This hotel is conveniently just off the freeway, close to many eating places, and pretty centrally located to major attractions. The rooms are pretty basic (I do take the bedspread off the bed--they look a bit questionable) but overall, very clean and quiet. I've stayed here 4 times and have never had a problem.

No ammenities, but the staff are quite polite. Most rooms u can park right in front of ur door. Cable is limited, and the rooms are very small, but they'll do for an overnight stay or road break.

Great location right off the exit ramp to the freeway. There were food places close by (Denny's next door), along with gas and convenience stores. There was not alot of parking and I had a large limousine bus I parked next door at the parking lot. The place is older and shows it's age. However, it seemed clean and maintained(very... More

The staff is very polite, the rooms are very clean, the environment is friendly. If you ever need a place to stay away from home that cost efficient, the key inn is my personal recommendation.
