The place was well kept. Our first room was promised to have a patio. As it turns out, NONE of their rooms have a... patio. While we were waiting for an answer, another guest (a complete stranger) entered our room with his own key. Needless to say, we were disturbed by this and were given an "upgraded" room. The second room was freshly painted, ground floor and had a new fridge plus a sitting corner. The guy working at the front desk was apologetic and kind. I seriously doubt we will go back. It wasn't horrible, but I would rather spend the same amount of money elsewhere for a more comfortable and place.read more

This hotel was awesome. My organization held two events here and the experience was one of the best I've ever had... working with a hotel. The staff was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and always there to help. Not once did I have to go looking for someone to help me. The rooms were great. Clean and modern. I would say the only downside if they don't have room services for lunch and dinner. I will definitely stay here again.read more

We stayed for three nights. There were pros and cons during our stay. The location is great close to everything. The... staff was very friendly and professional. The room itself was a little disappointing. The paint above the headboard was chipped in a few places which was noticible because it was an aqua color and white where the paint was chipped. The bathtub finish was chipped off and had rust stains, and the bathroom floor was dirty. Overall the room was clean, the linens were good, we had plenty of clean towels, and they offer maid service everyday if you want it. The grounds and pool area was clean and well kept. It was hard to find parking at night though. While the room was not fancy I felt it was a good value for what we paid.read more

Stayed for 3 nights for an impromptu family vacation. For the price, the rooms were as expected. Nothing fancy, but... were very clean. Only suggestion would be is to for them to replace the pillows or just bring your own. Probably the best service I’ve had though, even in comparison to high end hotels I’ve stayed at. Needed to call the lobby a few times for little items and they brought them up to quickly and pleasantly. All the staff was extremely friendly & due to an issue with the a/c not working fully (was tolerable, but not cold) they unexpectedly discounted my charges! Would definitely stay here again.read more

Dwayne saved me from what would of been a bad vacation. I was unknowingly staying at a filthy hotel. I searched online... for nicer hotels in the area and came upon this. Dwayne gave me a rate and I rushed right over. This place was awesome and CLEAN!!! My only complaint is the dirty curtains in the bathroom. Other wise this place rocks. Parking was easy, pool view, food on site. I WOULD RECOMMEND TO OTHERS.read more

Dwayne who works the front desk. Saved us from what could of been a bad vacation. We were going to stay at a hotel that... was completely filthy and unclassy. Then we did some searching online and found Kings Inn at 12 midnight. Dwayne gave us a rate and told us to make it before 2am and that we could be checked in. This hotel exceeded all expectation. We love the vintage vibe. It was CLEAN for the most part. the bathroom curtains were a little dirty but the bed was clean. The provided 2 blankets, a table with chairs and lots of food options. There were people cleaning the pool seats, how wonderful! Parking was easy and we could get to our room with no problem. I would stay here again. We had a nice view of the pool.read more

Family friendly place. Came here to escape the heat and to take my son and nephew out. Specifically went here because... the pool closes late at 10pm! Most places were closing their pools at 6pm/8pm etc.. And the zoo is about 4 miles or so. Another nice things is they strictly enforce the whole facility being non smoking. The room itself is modern, clean and nice! Would def come back again. CONS: Only downside would be no microwave in room. So if your trying to save a couple bucks, that may be a no go. Although not sure if it was just my room itself. Another downside was Roku was not setup and had to settle for cable channels. PRO: Room has a mini fridge.read more

Is a nice area, pool is open even is not in most other places. My issue is the bathroom, there's no room. I am a... fluffy woman and it was so uncomfortable for me. To even sit on the toilet let alone try to get dress in there..read more

Very pleased with my stay. My husband & I stayed here for 4 days in the king size bed room. The room was clean & the... employees provided excellent service. I found it odd that my room didn’t come with a microwave. I’m not sure if others do or not. That’s my only thing though, it just needed a microwave. Overall, I was very comfortable with this hotel. I also love how affordable it is. I will be returning again. 🙂read more

I picked this place for a family vacation based on photos and reviews. We pulled in and my husband was a bit skeptical... because it's not your standard Hilton or Best Western. We all fell in love with the place over the 6 days we stayed there and have agreed this is our go-to next time we stay in San Diego. The location is perfect, pool is great, rooms are clean and crisp, hospitality was very helpful and friendly. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel.read more

My rating is based on the category of lodging I would put this place in. That being said, this is a great mid-level... motel/hotel. If you want a rare 70s vibe with updated amenities then this place will make your dreams come true. There are 2 on site restaurants and a liquor/convenience store next door. The only one within at least a mile of the location (the store) is open till 2am daily. The price is usually the middle average compared to most of the places in the area. You'll have to do your research to decide what's worth it to you but this is definitely a suitable option for most people's needs. Free wifi that offers a decent connection. Parking can be sparse but it is free and available. Just know that you might not be so close to your room.read more

Your kindness is so appreciated! There's good people here I highly recommend Thank you thank you thank you!!!read more

We felt like a Royalty during our 30th Anniversary stay at the hotel. From the moment we arrived, we know exactly this... hotel was special. From the concierge that opened our taxi door through to the wonderful reception team. The bed is like sleeping on a cloud wish I could have taken it home with me! I will surely recommend this hotel to all of my friends.read more

Stayed here for approximately 2 to 3 months (work related). Management and the staff are nice, polite and attentive.... I mainly stayed in one room while I was there, but periodically had to move to a different room. The one room I stayed in was great. The other rooms were a bit small for me, but I was fine.The restaurants had good food and gave you large portions.All in all... I give The Kings Inn a 4.5 out of 5. There's always room for improvement, but are pretty damn close to perfection.Thanks!!!read more
