The rooms were very clean. The customer service was excellent. The help staff were for want of a better word, helpful. The location is great! It takes no longer than 10 minutes to reach beaches ( that does not include looking for parking ) and you can see the Seaworld fireworks front the front of the hotel. Fashion Valley mall...

The Kings Inn hotel provides a comfortable and clean room. There is a excellent mexican restaurant in the place, with good food and honest price. The place is not so close to the city center but you can easily get a bus, train or taxi to arrive there. Good cost benefit.

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...

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....

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.
