Customer service was excellent, Room was very clean and comfortable. Our special requests were met. Check in and check out was easy. This is the third time we have stayed here and all three times were equally as good. Will choose Kings Inn again next time.

Our repeat visit to the Inn is always a great time and good service from very helpful People. Will go back to the Inn due to being close to all attractions, also just to relax by the pool and unwind, for us that is a getaway and will be back soon The Woolery's

We had a great stay at Kings Inn. The location was perfect right near the highway, but street noise was never a problem. We liked the "Motel layout" with plenty of parking near your door and access to the outside right from our room. We left our windows open every morning and evening as there was forest behind us and... More

The room was affordable, clean and close to many attractions and interstate 5 The rooms are attractively decorated and have great showers. They have an excellent pool area. The restaurants were very good and reasonably priced. Loved the place, We will certainly stay there for a longer period again next year when we visit San Diego.

Each time I visit the Kings Inn in San Diego, I find a pleasant surprise. Something is new, or has been upgraded. Or some improvement has been made that my wife and I really enjoy. The hotel is centrally located and it's easy to get to anywhere in town; no "difficult to get there" problems. The rooms are attractively decorated,... More

Check-in was easy. Able to check-in early. Easy access to the interstate and Old Town San Diego. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast at the associated restaurant was very good. Great service and reasonable prices. Would stay at this location again.

Thank you for your review. We are glad check in was easy and early for you. Officially, our guaranteed check in time is 4pm. But whenever we have a room clean and available earlier we try to offer it to our guests without additional fees as early as 1pm. We hope you will visit again. More

We have been staying here for about over 10 years every time we visit San Diego. We visit 2-3 times a year. Great Staff and they make you feel like family. We enjoy arriving on Friday because they have Happy Hour and Mariachis starting at 6:30pm in the bar. We can relax, drink and enjoy without driving. Excellent hotel to... More

Near to the center of San Diego is the Kings Inn. A nice motel with a large pool area, clean and comfortable. The room has a regular size and was quiet, clean and just good. Everybody was friendly and helpful. We felt very good there and will come back some day!
