Woodland, California
Reviewed 23 March 2015

staff was nice big plus. rooms are average size room and clean. its a no thrill stay which is fine, when you need a quiet place to stay. you are not far from lots of fast food places. The only thing i would like them too upgrade their towels, sandpaper is nicer.

I was able to book a queen room at the last minute for a trip to Disneyland for New Years Eve. For it being NYE, I secured a decent price. Even before I checked in, I was provided with some really good customer service. I had called at around 3PM on the day of my check in to let the...

I called your office, left the hotel. I want my money back. the rooms sheet smelled like sex and sweat. Two of the staff were deciding how they were going to call of the next day discussing how overworked they were. I would not recommend anyone stay there..its worse than Calcutta-its like you walked into a third world country the...

This is a value hotel that was ok for the most part. We had booked a room but had to switch to another shortly after getting settled. Had issues with the first room. The second room we stayed in had some serious pressure in the bathroom lol, every time I flushed the toilet, it felt like being in an airplane...

I stayed here last night on a business trip. The room was older but clean. There's a large flat screen TV, fridge, and microwave in the room. The WiFi is a bit slow. There are 7-8 restaurants nearby with a Denny's next door.

I had a lot of trouble with this place. Bugs, thugs, riffraff, meth heads and that wasn't the worst. The tv does not work and when speaking to the pretend manager Rocio I have come to find out she is a rude bitter lady with no respect or customer service. I think she should be fired. She curses and can't...

I've been staying at the Key Inn for well over a year.The staff here is always friendly and courteous, and treat you like family. The rates are the best south of Anaheim, especially considering the rooms have 37" flat screen TV's. The rooms are clean, the landscape is beautiful, and there is a pool for both buildings.All in all, this...

As you know everyone has their own opinion on hotels/motels and they are not always the same. Our experience at The Key Inn has always been a great one. The general manager Armando Robles is wonderful on making ours and maybe your stay a pleasant one. The staff are great! They always do their very best to accommodate your needs....

For Orange County, the rooms here are very inexpensive, but still fairly large and well kept. The location is so-so, and the rooms don't keep out a lot of the noise from people walking and talking in the outside corridor, but it does have convenient access to several restaurants and fast food places (I recommend the funnel cake place on...

“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.”
