“Cheap, small rooms, but great rates.”
Reviewed 10 August 2011

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.

This motel is sheer hell on wheels. Starting with the staff of very rude & condescending women. The night clerk is a nightmare to deal with. She tossed my credit card down the counter & it fell on the floor: she snickered like an evil witch and did not apologize. The morning clerks weren't any better. I complained about the prostitution & partying going on upstairs and was told if I didn't like it I could leave---after having paid for a full week and they denied refunds. When I called the night clerk about the same prostitute upstairs, night clerk hung up on me. It's cheap but it's really not worth it. Parties & drug deals between rooms every night. Then there's the TV's that hit you from every direction: after 11pm & until 4:00am TV's start blaring from all directions & the walls are thin as paper. DON'T EXPECT TO GET ANY SLEEP HERE! The staff looks like escapees from a mental institution. Their attitude is much worse than I can begin to explain. If the partying made my stay hell, the clerks were the straw on the camel's back. I do not recommend this to anyone; I might send my worst enemy and my mother in law here, that's about it. If you're a drug dealer or a prostitute then this is the place for you.

Located right off the highway makes the Key Inn really accessible to both L.A., San Diego and Anaheim (Disney Land!!) However this means you can hear the traffic all night. The staff were ok, not fantastic but were quick and efficient. There was a pool but it was too cold to use it. However it did look clean and well cared for.
Best thing- Right next to Dennys!
Worst thing- The beds were SO small!
