Excellent for the price. This was a typical little motel right out of the 1950's/1960's. It's nothing fancy AT ALL but it is super clean and the grounds and pool are pretty darn well kept. It's within walking distance to many places including Katella Deli which has a great breakfast and bakery. It's also conveniently located close to the freeway and you really can't beat the price. The room was just fine to take a rest between destinations and to sleep at night. I would definitely recommend it.

We LOVE this place. Over the years, we have stayed here dozens of times. First of all, it's super clean. I feel like you see people cleaning all the time! The rooms are simple, but spotless. The pool is crystal clean. Second best of all is the kitschy quaintness of this place! It's like a little trip back to 1975. I hope they never get rid of their neon sign! If you stay here, you can walk over to the Starting Gate Night Club a couple blocks away, drink & dance the night away, then walk back to your hotel room. It's perfect! See you again, soon, Don's Turf Motel!! We love you!!

Very Good hotel!Staff The room was always clean, and so was the hotel in general. It is basic, but excellent value for the price. The beds are comfy and the shower pressure is good. The staff at the front desk were extremely helpful and always happy to help.

I had family in town and recommend they stay close by. I needed them away from the trashy motels on Beach and in a decent safe location. Don's Turf Motel's prices are not listed online so I called for pricing. Surprisingly the rates were less than $90/night for 2 double beds. My family booked a room.

Pros
- Friendly family run business
- cheap affordable rates
- clean
- newly carpeted

Con
- tiny bit of mold in the fridge

Family said they would definitely book here again.

My family and I stayed here for a whole week (week of July 4th) and found it delightful! We've stayed at Don's Turf Motel before, but we were amazed at their rooms! They have been upgraded since our previous stay a couple of years ago. We had to be out of our home while work was being done and this was such a nice option! Although, they don't have as many amenities as some of the larger hotels in the area, the staff friendliness and the quality that we get make it more than worth it.

Our rooms were clean and well maintained during our stay. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels, we even were able to get some extra towels. Although our room didn't have everything we needed, I talked to the woman at the front desk and I was given a hair dryer and a coffee maker (coffee cups too!) to use during my stay. This made our stay so much easier! The staff is friendly and our stay was made easy with the reservation we'd made ahead of time. The pool and courtyard were beautiful and we can't wait until our next visit.
