My husband and I traveled from Amarillo, Texas, to San Diego for our first visit in late March/early April 2014. I did lots of research about the area before I made final plans. I found many good hotels in San Diego, so I started looking at those that offered what was most important to us: safety, cleanliness, cost, and convenience.... More

Had a great experience here, they were happy to let me leave my bags early, which is always a benefit. The counter staff were very helpful! Room was good, bed comfortable, though was right near the pool so was a bit noisy during the day. Bathroom was a bit dated. Fantastic for the price, though certainly a place you need... More

We are glad you enjoyed your visit to San Diego and your stay at Kings Inn. A car is definitely helpful in San Diego because we are a large city that is spread over several miles including more than twenty miles of beaches. We are glad you chose us and that we met your needs during your trip. More

My experience with this hotel was wonderful. I drove by myself from Sacramento to San Diego to visit a friend, and had researched safe & clean places to stay. From reviews I had read, Kings Inn not only sounded like it "fit the bill", but was also less expensive than other hotels. Upon arrival and throughout my stay, I found... More

We chose Kings Inn after reading TripAdvisor reviews and comparing prices and the amenities they advertised. We couldn't have made a better choice. From the moment we checked in with Ana, which was late at night, we had a feeling this was going to be good. She was professional but friendly, personable, informative and fun. This type of attitude spread... More

For the price you can not beat Kings Inn. Rooms were big, clean, and comfortable. Staff was very friendly too. Kings Inn is about ten minutes away from SeaWorld San Diego. If I ever make it back to San Diego again, I will stay at Kings Inn.

Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Our only disappointment is that you said "if" you return to San Diego instead of "when". We hope you do have an opportunity to return. More

Kings Inn is not your Marriott or Hilton but comfortable, clean and affordable. At first I was a little worried about noise due to construction at the hotel but I didn't hear a thing and my room was right near all the work. Rooms were very clean and comfortable - a little out dated style wise. No coffee pots -... More
