This is old school hotel professionalism. Nothing super fancy, but comfort, convenience and a wonderful pool area to relax in. I loved the staff here, the neighboring Mexican restaurant and waffle house.

I stayed at Kings Inn from 12/2-12/5. Overall room condition was ok but hotel staff made my stay miserable. Problems began on day of discharge. I called front desk at 6 am to checkout. I requested if they would hold my luggage while I attend conference until 2. I had an international flight to catch that evening. I was advised...

We are as disappointed as you that you could not find value in your stay at Kings Inn during the conference you attended at one of our competitors whose rates were nearly $100 more per night. We pride ourselves in our value friendly rates and the service our staff provides. That said, we are limited to what we can accommodate...

This hotel was remolded last year and the rooms were refreshed. Check-in a breeze, nice staff. Easy access to rooms and Waffle Spot was a very good breakfast. Costs are in line with some lessor rated hotels, but watch for special and spend the few extra dollars if necessary. Pleasant stay.

Well I'd have to say that it was a very pleasant surprise. Amazing rates and pretty much newly renovated rooms. The only thing that was strange was a powerful smell of a cleaner or chemical.

This place was so cute and all dressed up in Christmas. The rooms were very clean and pretty and the pool was absolutely beautiful to swim in at night. The restaurant is a bit over priced, but the overall stay was great!

Location is good, easy to find. There was ample free parking space. Everything went well except on our 2nd night stay where our room was not cleaned. When I complained to the reception staff, all he did was apologized.

My wife and I stayed here and were very pleased with the accommodations. The front desk was very professional and friendly both upon check in and out. The room smelled very clean and was comfortable. The convenience of having on site restraunts was a big plus. Ate at the Waffle shop and had a wonderful breakfast.

The King's Inn is an excellent location for our favorite SAn Diego experiences, namely, Sea World, the San Diego zoo's in town and the Safari park and the wonderful museums and ambiance of Balboa park. Recent remodels have made all our recent stays extra nice.
