terrific location for exploring and enjoying Tustin. Rooms are clean. Our bathroom had been recently remodeled, clean. Rooms are small but not an issue. Fridge and microwave in room. And the price is right, under $90.

It is very convenient to old town Tustin; updated and quiet. The room contained a very comfortable bed with good clean linens. I really enjoyed the jacuzzi tub. There was a mini-fridge as well as a microwave. The manager was very courteous. I have no complaints. The only downside was that there was no pool.

I chose to stay here on my last night of a SoCal trip. Bad choice! I picked the place because the price was right and it was in reasonable proximity to the airport and "Old Town" Tustin. The room smelled musty. The bathroom was a disaster. The water was lukewarm at best. The toilet barely flushed. There was no coffee... More

This place is one step behind Motel 6. The room smelled stuffy, bathroom not super clean but not too dirty. Dated room especially the bathroom. but served its purpose. It looked like people lived in the motel. For the price, there are better options in the area.

I have stayed at the motor lodge for the past 11/2 years, nearly once a month. Granted some of the beds are hard and left me hurting the next day but I found that you can always go to the owner (also manager) and he will make sure you are as happy as possible. Our non smoking room had been... More

Very inexpensive so if you want to save money, you can. Full size bed, felt like cardboard and padding was put on top of box springs, fairly hard. No alarm clock in room. There is a microwave and tiny reefer in the room. Extremely close to all freeways, and restaurants very close.

I've been at the Tustin Motor Lodge for two months and could not find a single thing to complain about over that long time period - management is competent and nice, room service is great and staff is very friendly.

The Tustin Motor Lodge in Tustin, CA is probably the best deal I've seen in quite a while, especially in Southern California. I had a bad experience there once before, but I decided to give it a shot as a last resort since I was in a bind. The management has changed, and the rooms have been refurnished (dark wood... More

“Be specific about the type of room you need. Like quiet, close to parking area or near the back. Rooms in the corner are much bigger and can accommodate a family.”
