Well located at few minutes in car of Old San Diego. In general, very good standards of quality and are respected. Ideal for the family or travelers! Swimming pool was at a pleasant temperature and clean. A plus: would be to have more infos concerning La Jolla.

Our first room had a broken air conditioner, so they got us into a new room right away. The staff were friendly. Make sure to buy the $15 for $30 coupon from yelp if going to the Amigo Spot. The food there was excellent. The rooms aren't anything fancy, but they are kept clean and the beds are comfortable. We... More

I just returned from a three night stay, it was even better than I expected it to be. The staff was pleasant, and the desk agent gave is a free upgrade on arrival. The place is clean, comfortable, in a central location, but the room was quiet and the bed very comfortable. The mid-century ambiance, esp.around the kidney-shaped pool and... More

The room rates were very reasonable and Kings inn was close to everything we wanted to do in San Diego. We had fun and will return, Kings Inn treated us good. We stayed... More

This is my first time staying here and I feel like I've already been treated like family! I was so warmly welcomed by the ladies at the front desk. After hearing from every other hotel around that my stay for the night would be over $150 because of the holiday weekend I was ready to sleep in my car. I... More

The last time I stayed here was in May. Since then they have totally renovated the rooms including new screens. The pool area is immaculate. They are always friendly at the front desk and they have a restaurant and a bar. A great stop in San Diego.

Very nice people at check-in and the service and food quality at the on-site Mexican restaurant for dinner and in the Waffle House for breakfast was excellent. The location on Hotel Circle is great to get to attractions in San Diego but our room was very tired, awaiting a re-model as per some of the other rooms that have been... More

My girlfriend had a conference for work, so we stayed here because it was halfway between the airport and where she needed to go. Able to get on the expressway and go whereever we needed to go. Just outside of old town, which was a great thing. Both attached resturants had good food at a resonable prices. Had an issue... More

Rooms were very clean and updated. The pool area was wonderful and was centrally located to all of the rooms. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely return here! Recommended for families as the on-site Waffle Spot was a big hit with our kids too!
