We stayed here as part of a surprise trip to SD for my wife's 30th birthday. We love midcentury design, so this place was like Xanadu for us. Wonderful staff, clean rooms and grounds. We thought the bed was very comfortable as well, unlike other reviewers. Breakfast at the Waffle Spot is a must. We really want to come back...

This hotel is not only convenient but I had a fantastic time here! The retro/modern vibe is super cute. The rooms are very clean and well cared for. The pool area is gorgeous. Both restaurants on location serve very tasty food with great service. The front desk staff is genuinely friendly and helpful. I will not hesitate to stay here...

The Kings Inn was a great place to stay and I would stay here again. Even though it is an older hotel, it has spacious rooms and has recently undergone a "facelift". Rooms are very clean and beds very comfortable. The price was reasonable and the staff all were very friendly and accommodating. They have 2 onsite restaurants, one serves...

I liked this place last year and in this year visit also was here. Actually, I am still here. Nice staff, kind people, excellent managers. Room service is perfect. Pools are available, jacuzzi. Bar, Amigo restaurant is perfect. Prices are cheap, but service is perfect in any of the venues. Come and enjoy it.

We recently stayed at this hotel and found it to be a very nice, affordable hotel that was very clean, safe and offered options on the premises such as restaurants. We would stay here again. The Mexican restaurant on the premises we were not impressed with. Their happy hour options were not at all ideal and things were priced rather...

We chose this hotel because of the price and great reviews on TripAdvisor. I called the hotel directly to make our reservation and received a better rate than Priceline.com. Ana was so helpful and friendly. Property was charming, room was immaculate.....upscale linens and fluffy towels. Fabulous location. Fun restaurants on site. We stayed 4 nights and wished it was longer!

I selected this place on the basis of price. I was attending a convention at the Convention center. In past years I have stayed at the big hotels near the convention center. This time I had a rented a car, drove to the convention, parked under the convention center for $15 per day, and commuted from Kings Inn. Excellent! I...

Great low cost option near almost everything in San Diego. 15 minute drive to the convention center. Nice room, lots of TV channels, good wifi. Lots of pillows. Bed could have been softer but it was fine. Booked on their site, easy checkin (after 3) and out. Would stay there again!

I've stayed at this hotel dozens of times over the last twenty plus years (!!!), from when I first moved here and was looking for an apartment, to the times I've moved back and was looking for a new apartment or repainting, to times I just needed air conditioning and a pool to go to in summer because the places...
