This is a great "stop over" motel. It is clean and quiet. It is family friendly and with a sparkling pool in the center courtyard. All of the rooms have sliding glass doors that open to the pool. It is across the street from the race track. Be sure to bring your own shampoo and a hair dryer.

I found this place because I love horse racing -- it is about 200 yards down the street from Los Alamitos Race Course, a down-to-earth, fun track that deserves more fans. Not being a travel expert, I only know this: if there is a better deal for a simple, well-kept, quiet little motel in a 50-mile radius of this place,...

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...

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...

After reading other reviews, I decided to give this place a try. I'm glad I did. It ain't fancy! But, it is clean, quiet and inexpensive. Since I work in the area but live out of the area, I needed a clean, quiet and economical place to stay 3 or 4 nights a week. This place works out ok. No...

We stayed at Don's Turf on 8/23 & 8/24. We were visiting Los Al (from Washington State) for the horserace meet and to celebrate my father's 75th birthday. We used to stay at Don's Turf when I was growing up (in the 1970s and 1980s), but in the late-80's it felt into disrepair. We hadn't stayed since, but decided to...

Very clean, low cost, extremely quiet, and friendly staff. Good place for sleeping and resting. A no frills small motel. The pool is very clean and sparkling clear. About 1-2 miles down the road is restaurants and shopping places and grocery stores.

“If you need a firm bed, you'll have to ask. Otherwise, the bed can be uncomfortable. I need a firm bed and they now give me a room with a firmer bed.”

“All the rooms are about the same, if you are looking for a VALUE and peace and quiet this is the place to stay! It is a no frills place, sort of like a BABY Residence Inn...but the price is great for the room size! A very clean, quiet and safe place to stay!”
