Internet access good. Nice pool and hot tub area. Two restaurants on property Mex for dinner with bar and Waffle breakfast one in morning. Lots of out... More

The staff was friendly and gracious, the room was clean with a comfortable bed, and convenient to a lot of the local attractions. From what I have read, the hotel has undergone some major and minor renovations over the last year, and it shows.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Kings Inn. We had 3 rooms and all three were clean & comfortable. We needed to be in close proximity of each other & we were given 3 rooms in a row. We were on the ground floor and did not hear the people above us. The motel is 2 stories. The pool... More

Thank you for sharing your review and photos on Tripadvisor. We recently replaced our pool lights with energy efficient LED lights and the pool definitely looks awesome at night with them.

Good hotel with two delicious restaurants attached. Clean rooms, helpful staff, clean pool and spa. We came because of the updated rooms and clean pool and we were not disappointed. Close enough to Sea World and the Zoo and Seaport Village. I would definity stay here next time I visit San Diego.

Very nice hotel in a great area. Staff was friendly, accommodations were clean and comfortable, nice pool. Convenient to beaches and all sight seeing. Relaxing atmosphere. Just one thing--would restrict age on jacuzzi, i.e. no children under 12 years. Would stay here again!

Hopefully that was your situation. We do pride ourselves in being a family friendly hotel and our huge pool and spa are part of that attraction... More
