“Hidden Jewel in OC!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2011

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!

Room Tip: ask for facing away from the freeway to avoid noise

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.

Room Tip: I've had better luck with the upstairs room as far as noise is concerned. They have two building...

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. One thing that kept happening to me, and I think it was just bad luck, someone kept calling our room at odd hours. Id answer, they wouldn't say anything then hang up.

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 much like a motel 6 or super 8 budget motel. It did have a seperate bedroom from the main bedroom (I guess they call this a suite) but, it did not have a table w/chairs. Basic no frills hotel.

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.

Room Tip: cant help there. got the best one. :)

I am a professional/business owner who resides in LA county, and with rental properties in Orange, and San Diego counties. One who travels(for business) to and fro the north and south of California. I have always found this place a great refuge to relax. This place is clean, affordable, and with cordial staff, and professional management. Considering today's high fuel prices, and snarl traffic of LA county, I found it more feasible to stay at Key Inn when I am in town.
