“Quick Overnight Business Trip”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Great value for the money. Other hotels in the area don't have the in house restaurants or even close by, so I choose this hotel because they have two good restaurants. The inside old tavern style, real sense of home inside, rooms are above average.

Coffee available 24/7 downstairs, room service until 11pm, real nice pool and jacuzzi area, I didnt use but saw several people taking advantage of the area. REal easy freeway access and just an overall great low cost stay-over.

Room Tip: Excellent value

I am very pleased with my stay at Kings Inn hotel. I had no issues whatsoever. The hotel could use an upgrade, but for the price you definitely get a deal. The location and service were excellent. Overall, I would stay again.

Thank you for your review. We have great news! Kings Inn will be going through a remodel in 2014! Our rooms will be seeing a new design and our lobby and public areas will be renovated.
We can't wait to show off the new changes spring 2014.

The Kings Inn has a great location, right off the interstate, just a short distance from the Zoo, SeaWorld and the beaches. The rooms are spacious and very clean, the staff is super friendly and helpful and you can't beat the 2 on-site restaurants, The Amigo Spot (which has GREAT mexican food) and the Waffle Spot (enough said).

If you love good food, friendly staff, exceptionally clean and fully stocked room, comfortable beds, sensible bar prices and excellent location to airport and San Diego city. Music at night whilst dining (no hands coming out for tips!) tasty food, amazing breakfast choices with staff incredibly helpful at all times. I would DEFINITELY use the King's Inn again if I were to visit San Diego and highly recommend it to anyone who likes cleanliness, friendliness, comfort and unlimited choice foodwise. Thanks for looking after us so well. The memory of my stay will be with me for many years. Chris, Newbury, England.

Room Tip: As we only stayed 2 nights in the same room, it would be difficult to say too much about other rooms...

For 50 euro each night it was not expensive. The hotel is situated on the hotel circle and therefore you'll need a car or public transportation to go to a restaurant. The staff of the hotel is friendly and the rooms spacious. We had a good night sleep.

We are glad you found great value in your rates during your stay and liked our hotel and the room. San Diego is a very big city and so touring by car is always an advantage, though public transportation does pick up directly out front six days a week. We appreciate you sharing your experience.

I really liked the atmosphere here and all the people were very friendly the rooms were clean and nice, bathrooms were kinda tight but the only major complaint I have were the stiff beds. The whole family did not sleep that night made for a bad day the next day. Fix the stiff beds and this Inn would be perfect.

Thank you for staying with us during your recent visit to San Diego. Our goal for all our guests is to meet that balance of comfort-value-service and we missed the mark with our mattresses in your room and we apologize. We hope you will feel encouraged that we have big plans for our guest rooms in a redesign that will happen the beginning of 2014 and includes new beds.
