This was the perfect location for me and my family. The staff was great! The grounds are very nice. We could believe how BIG the pool was. The room could use a little updating. The carpet was pretty bad to where it would turn your feet black, the bathroom is VERY small and the toilet made a horrible sound when...

I loved it here. This is my second stay. This is in a location where you need to drive to the sights, but a nice respite on return. Great pool. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. I returned to this place because I enjoyed the night time swim. This is a good place for families. They also, offer restaurant...

For the price, everything was great. Hotel personnel were friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. Manager addressed any and all problems, which were almost none, immediately. Pool area was beautiful. Restaurant on property was very good. Only draw back was the lack of space in the bathroom area but there's nothing to be done about that. Overall a great place...

This Kings Hotel has the best customer service I have ever received from all staff involved which included the Front Desk, cleaning staff, and the staff employed in the two restaurants. Too top it off, the food in both restaurants was fantastic. Loved the fact it has a washer and dryer. Because of a loose cable, the TV went out...

David P, Manager at Kings Inn San Diego, responded to this review

Your high praise for the service you received during your visit to Kings Inn and our two restaurants is greatly appreciated. Long before we set out to remodel our hotel from top to bottom, we focused on how we took care of our guests. The idea was simple. Good, friendly and attentive service are the foundation of any hotel. When...

The staff was extremely courteous and friendly. The property was great it keeps to its roots but has done a lot to upgrade the rooms. The waffle spot was delicious and has some of the best waffles in town.

Very clean, very friendly place. It is centrally located making it easy to get around. The Waffle Spot is great. No resort fee and plenty of free parking. We didn't use the pool but it is huge. Will definitely stay again.

This property is well preserved. It's 1960s charm is delightful. The Waffle restaurant is terrific. Try the churro waffle, you won't be disappointed. I especially love the spacious pool area. It includes a shaded patio for those who shy away from the sun. Another nice thing is that the "waffle man" comes to hand out Popsicles to the children. I...

I have stayed at the King's Inn many times. I stay here when I know I just need a place to rest at the end of my busy day. I can count on the room to be clean. The location is convenient to all destinations in San Diego. Two restaurants are located on the premises. Staff is friendly and eager...

Our experience was great right from the very beginning when we met Ana (manager) who made us feel welcome and provided excellent tips and walked us through a tour map on activities to do in the city. Room was clean, good parking facility, swimming pool and hot tub. Two good restaurants at the facility, the Waffle Spot breakfast place can...
