Nice room, good housekeeping service. Close to downtown and old town. If you want a microwave in your room it’s extra per day, but you can use the one in laundry room free of charge. Lobby carries snacks and soda.

We stay here when we are in San Diego, and have never been disappointed. This last trip was during the alleged pandemic and the staff worked diligently to protect the patrons while providing necessary services to all the guests staying at the hotel. The restaurants were open and providing a limited menu which was more amazing than usual perhaps because we haven't eaten out for 3 months or perhaps it's just a great place to eat, either way we completely enjoyed our stay.

The outdoor space at the property is welcoming and relaxing. The rooms are dated but clean. Yes bathrooms are on the smaller side but that wasn't a problem for us. They have restaurants within walking distance. For the price it was a nice stay.

Our Housekeepers truly are dynamos! They have embraced all the additional tasks assigned during Covid-19 and help us to keep everyone in the hotel safe and healthy. Thank you for recognizing them. In regards to our bathrooms, we recently remodeled the ground floor poolside rooms and the bathrooms feel much more accommodating. The rooms also have vinyl plank flooring which is much easier to sanitize between guests stays. They upgraded Fridges and TVs. And they are steps away from our beautiful pool. Definitely worth considering the slightly higher rate for these comforts. Thanks for sharing your review.

Great customer service. Everything was very nice. Will be back soon to enjoy the ambiance and peaceful setting. The location is great right in the center of every place. With the covid19 going on it was like having the place to myself. Felt like my own little paradise.

I haven't actually stayed here. I booked my reservation back in December, 2019 in anticipation of my work conference schedued for June, 2020. I booked a non-refundable reservation because I didn't think anything could stop me from attending a work event that I've attended for the past 5 years, then surprise! This pandemic happened. This hotel was nice enough to cancel my reservation and refund my money due to the circumstances. I am impressed and very thankful to Kings Inn, so I'm sharing my story here. Some businesses do have a heart after all. Thank You! =-)
