We enjoyed the Waffle Place at the motel. Service DVD food was good. Our 7 and 8 year old enjoyed the pool. The room and bathroom are small but for the four of us just fine. All employees were super nice and helpful. Great location to everything, including Comic Con.

This hotel is a 1960s motel that has been refinished and brought back to its old glory. If you're into mid-century modern style, you'll love this place It's in an old motel building, so your room may have outside entry. The courtyard features a large pool and sitting areas. Our room was very clean, with new modern furniture, and our... More

It was a great place to stay with my daughter and 2 grandsons. Comfortable rooms. Very friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again. Close to the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, etc. Only 30 minutes to Legoland.

Overall the hotel is very nice. I was disappointed that the maid did not clean the tub adequately. After a long day of walking my husband took a shower. His feet left dirt marks in the tub which would be easily cleaned by a good scrub with comet. The tub stayed dirty the rest of the time we were there.... More

Good old fashioned hotel. Clean rooms, nice pool and patio area. You can appreciate the 60's decor in the lobby, but know this place is modern with free wifi, and flat screen TVs in the rooms. 9 minutes from sea world, and 15 to the maritime museums. Show the kids some nostalgic fun.

It was a lower class hotel and the prices were high. The restaurant was only open 7am to 2pm for breakfast and lunch. The rooms were a fair size. there was a good size pool. There was sercurity around to keep people quite.

5 nights stay with my 2 daughters, for Comic-Con. Shuttle bus pick up just outside, was perfect. Close to large shopping Mall and small mini mart just up the road. Clean and tidy accommodation and friendly staff. Two restaurants attached to complex and a great swimming pool.

I believe in the past have written a review of the Kings Inn but since it has been quite awhile since I have been there thought it a good idea to furnish my impressions of this short visit.

My girlfriend and I flew down from Montreal, Canada for Comic Con. The stay was perfect. The room was clean and the "waffle" diner very pleasant. But it is the staff that makes the place great. They are friendly, efficient, smiling, etc. Top notch. I'd go back there anytime. Highly recommended.
