I had a great stay at the Kings Inn. The staff was wonderful. Every single, person from the bartenders to housekeeping, was friendly and helpful and courteous. The room was clean and the bed was a little hard, but the kind people at the front desk were able to arrange for housekeeping to add an egg create under the fitted...

Stayed here with my Mom and kids over spring break. Probably the nicest retro style courtyard motel I've ever stayed in. Amazing staff, beautiful pool area and extremely well kept. Great family restaurants right on site. We will definitely be back!

Staff was outstanding! Room was spotless and had cool retro beach style. Pool was lovely and warm and the kids had a blast here! We had a poolside room and enjoyed being able to keep an eye on the kids and relax at the same time. The WaffleSpot was amazing for breakfast and the churro waffles blew our kids minds....

Although the staff was extremely nice, the beds were very uncomfortable! I would not recommend for anyone who does not like firm mattresses. However the pool was well maintained and the best part of the entire place! Waffle Spot... nastiest food I have ever eaten. 2 meals was $30. And we sent all the food back without eating, received no...

It is very cheap, and close to town worth every penny. Easy to commute the city on the bus and trolley. I booked for two weeks but stayed for one week and they give me a full refund. That's a bonus, I will stay there again and can't wait to book again in future

This is an older motel that has been redecorated to embrace the retro feel of the place. The front desk staff are all very friendly and polite and will ask about your trip and your stay. The Waffle restaurant, also retro, is great. Smiling staff, reliable and tasty food for breakfast and lunch. 10% off if you are staying at...

We unexpectedly found this gem when planning our week long trip to watch our daughter play softball. We chose this hotel because of the positive reviews, it was priced reasonably, and had all of the amenities of a chain hotel. This hotel was a pleasant surprise! The rooms and grounds were very clean. The rooms have free WiFi, refrigerator, TV,...
