The staff of Kings Inn Hotel is, without a doubt, the friendliest, most helpful group travelers will experience. The location is near all the important attractions and easily accessible to freeways. Room was clean and bright. Great stay.

Room size for twin beds was ok but bathroom was rather small even for us slim builds. Bright rooms because of Windows in bathroom.Plenty of electrical outlets. Plenty of good car parks. Hotel restaurant served good Mexican food, staff was helpful for our son with allergies

Hotel was situated in a reasonable area and easily found, Rooms were a bit dated but ok, toilet was very small which was a bit of a pain, Room rate was reasonable for what you got, very good wifi which you got in most areas.

Let us begin by apologizing for not rising to your expectations. "Ok" is not okay with us. We strive to create a balance between comfort, value, service and cleanliness and somewhere in there we missed the marks in your experience. We are glad that overall you were satisfied. We want to clarify that all rooms were remodeled in 2014-2015 with... More

We would definitely go back to this place to stay. Very clean place - small bathrooms but that's ok. The people were exceptionally helpful and the food at both restaurant and bar was fabulous. We had a very good experience staying there.

We would definitely enjoy having you as our guests, too. Thank you for trying both our restaurants while staying here. We like to think that we offer a little more than most hotels in Mission Valley with two restaurants and a lounge. We even have happy hour every day and live music Thursday through Saturday each week. We understand that... More

The hotel and surroundings were very clean, people very nice however....there was a musty smell in the rooms.....I got lysol and sprayed which made it better. I think if they changed the filters for the air that would make a big difference

David P, Manager at Kings Inn Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your review and suggestion regarding the vent filters. Our maintenance does replace them every three months but some rooms occasionally need more frequent attention. After you checked out we placed an ionizer in your room for a few hours and this seemed to help immensely. Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your review. More

I stayed here for four nights, and I, as a whole, enjoyed my stay. This is a no frills type hotel, but the room was clean, the staff was friendly, and there is a breakfast and lunch/dinner restaurants on the property. What I did not like, however, was that there was a visible gap between the door of my room... More

We are pleased that as a whole you enjoyed your stay at Kings Inn. And we understand your sentiments. Those pizza fliers bother us, too. Since we started security earlier in the evening, they have not been as frequent as in years past. Unfortunately, they are a menace to most hotels in southern California but little else can be done... More
