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.

This is not a high end hotel. It has tiny rooms, a dinky bathroom, a "kitchenette" area.

The walls are freshly painted, fairly new carpet, new windows. Overall, the room was basically clean except for the kitchen area. Said kitchen area had a left behind bag of potato chips in a cupboard, an ancient fridge with a rusted shelf, and two very dried mouse poops on top of the microwave. The hot water in that sink did not turn on, but the cold worked. There were Non-remodeled cupboards, drawers and a two burner hot plate. This kitchenette was behind a door.

No closet, there was a rack with a bar in one corner to hang clothes. There was a large flat screen tv in the room. The bed is not top end, but not low end either, medium firmness.

The hotel is in old town Tustin and close to the freeway, but depite being closest to the freeway, we heard no road noise.

The ac/heater combo is a bit hard to adjust, but it cooled the room off nicely. Almost too nicely, it got cold fast.

This hotel needs more TLC but it is okay for a basic night.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Room was an upstairs unit and quite small, would be very tight for more than 2 persons. Room was very basic with a comfy queen bed, good size flat screen tv on wall, small refrigerator freezer and microwave. Bath area had place to hang clothes and sink counter was big enough to put large travel suitcase along with bath items. Shower was very old and needed to be resurfaced and drain didn’t drain too good, place was clean with two trash baskets. Room was very dark when wood blinds drawn closed. Nighttime was quiet had no issues with homeless or vagrants. Parking is very tight but never went without a place on property for car. Office personnel were friendly and helpful. Great Mexican food at jalapeños less than a mile away well worth the trip, ate there every day for lunch, breakfast at “original pancake house” on Chapman ave orange for the apple pancake breakfast, about 5 miles away. This is not a fancy hotel my any means and is historic for area. If you need close in to old town tustin this works great and if all you need is a bed, bath, and microwave. Would stay again by myself.

Terrible. For 100 dollars I got a room with a soaking wet carpet a terrible smell and a 1×2 inch bar of soap. Well there was a small patch of carpet that was dry on the way to the bathroom. The front desk did not seem to understand my complaints.

Do all motels perpetuate the alleged stereotype as “TACKY” and “RUDE” establishments? Yes, only if you book a room at the Tustin Motor Lodge Motel. Not only is there the challenge of parking into compact-sized space (considered “guest parking”) but one would have to deal with the rude profiling from guest services.
This “opened 24 hour” motel doesn’t require holding reservations, but a booking upon request. In this sense, this is to mean that all available rooms will be ready and clean upon reservation. Unfortunately, there was a “mishap” and we received a room that looked already occupied.

When we entered the unit and it smelled of opened beer and smoked cigarettes.
Next to our honestly advertised color television set were roughly 40 beer bottles. Half were empty in trash bags, and the other half were full scattered all over our bathroom counter. There was a disposable razor on top of the drawers, toe nail clippers, and a used nail file on our dresser drawer. As well as a portable stereo CD player, a stack of CDs labeled in Spanish titles. We found about 20 more CDs in a trash bag in one of the drawers. Obviously, we booked a room that had an ongoing party. We questioned whether did this room was double-booked, and we were scared of encountering them. Since we were already made that the room was already lived in, how would they react to people with another key?

After witnessing this dissatisfaction, we alerted the “self-proclaimed” manager about the condition of the unit and received no help.
“Only leave it inside,” she said. “There was nothing I could do about it ‘my friend,’ she said condescendingly. She directed to me as ‘[her] friend’ I’m sorry have I met you? Her sarcasm was atrocious and the lack of performing guest services was unacceptable for this business. As a manager I would think it to be her responsibility to clean it up and she failed to have it done before we entered the unit.

The condition of the room was adequate quality. There were cigarette burns on the toilet seat and used cigarettes outside our door. Hanging in our closet was a soiled shirt with pictures of beer bottles hanging on a coat hanger covered in grime. The towels, soap, cups, and toilet paper were not sufficient for two bedroom room.

The next day when we complained about the apartment and asked for a refund or partial refund or something since we did not get what we paid for. She would do nothing to appease the situation.

As far as I’m concerned, we did not receive these services that we paid for. This was the WORST motel service I have ever experienced. Personally, I found the beer and cigarettes offensive since I take ill whenever they’re in my presence.

This is by far the worst motel I have experienced. These privately-owned, small businesses will continue to lose competition to chained businesses, like Travel Lode Motel or Motel 6, for not holding descent quality guest and room services.

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 place is quiet and clean and has good wireless internet access (never failed during the 2 month stay). The room was very confortable and the room service was nice to the point of waiting extra time to clean the room after a couple of late wake ups of mine - definitely 5 stars.

Plus, there are a lot of good restaurants within walking distance.

I'll certainly return here when I need to stay in Tustin.

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 & granite countertops). The price of a basic room with one queen sized bed, a tub in the bathroom, A/C and Heat, with free HBO and ESPN is an astounding $50 a night (after tax). The room was clean, the beds were freshly made, and the staff was always courteous and friendly, and happily accomodated my need for more towels. This motel is close to old town Tustin and right off the I-5 freeway.
As always, I asked for a quiet room in the back, and the manager happily obliged. The motel is quiet, clean, safe and well maintained. I would recommend the Tustin Motor Lodge to anyone who is looking for a good, clean place to stay without spending a ton of money.

I'm not sure if this was the worst experience I've had at a hotel in my whole life but it certainly has to be close. There was a cigarette burn hole in the bed spread. I was there for 4 nights and the internet worked correctly one night, for a couple hours another night and not at all the other 2 nights. One day they skipped maid service and didn't clean the room. The bathtub was badly damaged and somebody tried to repaint it in a miserable fashion. The bath tub drain was so slow I had to shower quickly or end up standing in my own dirty bath water. There was no stopper of any kind for the vanity sink. The TV had a problem and the picture was a bunch of color blobs. It was cheap and the days they did clean the room it wasn't too bad. That's about all I can sya good about it.
