This hotel is in a great location. We were never more than 15 minutes from anything we wanted to see. Check in was fast and easy, and the hotel room was clean. The carpets and bathroom seemed a littly dingy, but got the job done. Could hear people talking outside your room but again no biggie. Fridge was nice for... More

Pool and price were great. We like our room very cold so we had the A/C set to a low temperature. The room stayed cool but the A/C would make a loud banging sound when it would turn on and off which would wake us up through out the night. Then, in the morning we would be woken up by... More

We were greeted by very friendly staff. I believe her name was Kimmy. Check in was fast. We only stayed one night but got to experience the hot tub which was very clean and centrally located. We ate at the Waffle spot in the morning (although being served in the amigo spot during lobby renovation). Food and service were good.... More

This was a nice hotel in a great location. I have to say that whoever cleaned our room was sweet and made our 3 year old happy - every time we can back our beds were made with my daughter's stuffed animals tucked and wrapped in her blanket! I thought that was very sweet! The waffle spot and amigo spot... More

Have stayed at this hotel multiple times when in the San Diego area. The hotel is basic and not luxurious, but it gets the job done. Usually only spend the evening/night at the hotel, so I don't need a fancy hotel. The rooms are clean and have recently been updated. The lobby is currently under renovation (should be done in...

First and foremost, even though renovations were taking place to lobby & restaurant, their service exceeded my expectations. Location is amazing. Only downfall, 'mexican' restaurant was below average however the location of the hotel (close to other food establishments) made up for the lack of quality. Rooms were dated however very clean; and the pool area was kept very clean... More

Save your money and stay at the Kings Inn. The staff is nice and there is easy access to the 8 fwy. The TVs and remotes worked well. It is a perfect spot to bring a family. The pool is very nice and the local food establishments are good values.

My friends and I enjoyed our days there. It is clean and cozy, near old town and public transportation. The staff is very kind and helpful, especially cute Kimmy (we miss u), helping us with renting car and tickets for the sea world. Taking the price into consideration, it is a fantastic place!
