We decided to stay at Kings Inn because of the great rate they offered on short notice. For the price we paid it was definitely worth staying here. The hotel had a great retro/modern look in the lobby and throughout the property. The rooms were styled pretty basic with the same décor. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The beds... More

We live in San Diego but wanted to stay close to downtown for a night out and no driving. Our friend Bill recommended "Kings Inn" and he was right! When we arrived the marquee out front had a special message for our group of 14. Nice touch. Inside was very nice. A very cool retro vibe and friendly faces at... More

My family and I stayed here for MLK weekend, the hotel is ideally located, close to pretty much everything. We had a total of 3 rooms and they were all a good size, clean and comfortable. The only weird thing I found was that no one cleaned up our rooms during the day while we were out, not sure if... More

Kings Hotel is where to go when you want basic accommodations on a budget. Decor was simple and couldn't be called modern but not outdated either. Room clean, bed comfy. Had a mini fridge. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Outdoor entrances made this more a motel than hotel. Stairs were tough to drag luggage up. Coming in late... More

It is near airport. Clean and affordable. Nice swimming pool and good Internet. Recepcionists are honest and lovely. Good hotel for resting if you have arrived at airport of San Diego from a long trip.

Very nice hotel overall! Great spot for location! Drive 5 miles & you can reach the zoo, Sea World, beaches, downtown, airport, & a bunch of clubs & places to dine day or night. Rooms still have cast iron tubs, so not too modern! Very clean & well kept though! We would definitely stay here again. Next time I wouldn't... More

We stayed here for one night while on our way to Sea World. The accommodations were perfect for my family. The hotel room was super clean, as were the grounds and pool area. Don't hesitate to stay here!

In March 2016 I booked a room on a prepaid basis for April. Two weeks after my stay Kings Inn charged for another night. The room was good and I liked the property but the duplicate billing earned the lowest rating possible. I called the hotel when I saw the duplicate charge. I was told the error was due to... More
