Reviewed 15 August 2016

We loved this place. It is located on the Hotel Circle so it is near Old Town, Balboa Park and other attractions. King's Inn has such a modern/retro feel to it. Our room was updated with modern furniture, tile, light fixtures, etc. and yet the trees and flowers are mature and beautiful. Hotels/motels like this typically have the heat/cooling in...

We are glad our rooms served your needs for comfort and convenience and that you enjoyed both our on site restaurants. We hope you can visit again and have a chance to enjoy our pool which...

I stayed here in may 2016 during a medical conference, hence it was little pricy than usual- supply demand concept. Hospitality was good, people at the reception desk were awesome and helpful. Common amenities like pool, jacuzzi, internet use, print outs were basic and good to use. Rooms were spacious and clean. It was a motel open to highway, so...

Thank you for staying with us during your medical conference convention center. Even though our rates are higher due to demand during summer months, we feel confident you chose us because of the savings you found over other hotels in the area and a fraction of the downtown high rise hotels. Exterior corridors get a bad rap. We would suggest...

I booked the room a month in advance based on reviews and it's even better than expected. The hotel manager Ana made sure we were satisfied when we decided to stay an extra night without having to switch rooms. The rooms were clean, the amigo spot was yummy and the pool was crystal clean. Thank you kings inn for making...

My visit to the Kings Inn was one for the books. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The food at the Waffle Spot was awesome. The hotel had a vintage feel with updated rooms. Great boutique hotel. I will definitely book there again the next time I'm in San Diego. Spectacular service!

The hotel/motel is in a good location near San Diego airport. The double queen room where we stay is clean and comfortable, even though the queen is on the small size, more like full size, rather than queen. The bathroom is pretty small but good water pressure. Overall, we enjoys our stay, especially with the competitive room rate at Kings...

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and found value in our rates at Kings Inn. Make no mistake, in our double rooms, the beds are true queen sized. There really are size options on queen beds as there are with king beds. Our king bedrooms might be more your style if your are traveling as a couple. We appreciate...

I'm very careful at picking a place to stay. I was very satisfied with this place. I came with another adult and my two children. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean, nice and cozy. I will defiantly be staying here again. Totally recommend it!

The hotel was nice clean. Nice pool open till 10 pm . Only downsize was not getting into room until 4 pm. Even though check in time is 4pm most hotels can get you in if you are a little early. I got there at 3 but it is a little thing and hotel is worth staying in

The minute we checked in, I knew I liked this hotel. It has a 60's vibe of an old fashioned family hotel, but updated. It is clean! The housekeeping is impeccable...the mattresses even have fitted sheets... You never find that in any hotel anymore. The staff, from Housekeeping to front desk, have been so friendly and helpful.
