We made the mistake of booking 1 Thursday night here when we needed to have our house tented for termites. We were new to the area, and our house is in a nice neighborhood about 1 mile away. We thought it would be most convenient to take the kids to school from here, then we planned to go out of...

a room and a bed for cheap - guys, don't ever take your wife here...this is a place where you can crash for cheap, safe, fairly clean and hot shower. Rooms were good size, a little freeway noise but not bothersome...easy to get to and get back on the I=5.

There were 3 of us, one adult 2 kids. We were given 1 king bed for the price of $134 for 2 nights, tax fees included. Super cheap but it came with uncomfortable stay. My son got his allergy back that triggered his asthma attack on the first night. It means the place is dusty. The fan the heater/AC it...

Terrible place. Bed was very uncomfortable, no in room coffee, refidgerator froze everything. Noisy, noisy, noisy. Bathroom setup was very inconvenient. Avoid at all cost. Television selection was almost non-existent. Basically a very uncomfortable place to stay. We were there to visit a dieing relative and staying here made it worse.

This was the worst motel we have ever stayed in. It was dirty, moldy, decrepit, smelly; shower was burning hot or ice cold. Had to cover the spread with a sheet. It did not deserve a spoke on a star. The tiny cake of soap broke after one use. The towels were like rags. When we complained that the pictures...

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!!!!

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...

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.

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...

“We were on the bottom floor and was quiet above us. We were on the back side of the complex also. Two stories, stairs, no elevator.”

“It is very freeway accessible. That's why I stay here. If you do NOT want to get on the freeway quickly, then there are plenty of other hotels in the area, but I love how I can wake up and with in 5 minutes be on the 5 freeway doing 65mph.”
