I love staying at the kings inn hotel. They are so friendly and accommodating. The hotel has that mid century modern feel to it and is really clean! The waffle spot has fabulous breakfast. I look forward to my stay here every year for tiki oasis!!

I want to start by saying the property is lovely. And my boyfriend and I enjoyed the two restaurants on site, which I will review separately. But my overall impressions are: The mattresses are really way too firm, the pillows are downright hard. The shower was clearly not cleaned before we checked in (hair--a LOT of hair--in the shower, no...

You may have read my previous review of Kings Inn from last year. This year was just as great, if not better! The room was wonderfully quiet and peaceful, even though it was right over the Amigo Spot restaurant. It was lovely having a balcony, even if we didn't get to enjoy it for very long. My husband and I...

We really liked the update/improvements to the King's Inn! The management really hit the nail on the head with the design, colors and comfort! Clean pool, tropical grounds and plenty of parking lend to a great stay!

Nothing fancy here, but very comfortable, clean room with all amenities one could want. Very friendly staff, really nice pool and whirlpool. Amigos restaurant and bar fun with friendly bartender, Juan. Free parking was a plus since most hotels on this Hotel Circle charge quite a bit. We are from Hawaii and the tropical atmosphere here made us feel right...

We definitely had a little extra aloha spirit during your visit with the Tiki Oasis festival happening. We are glad to see you enjoyed your visit and that Juan took great care of you in the lounge. At Kings Inn, we try to keep it simple with clean, comfortable rooms, friendly service and great amenities like our heated pool, two...

It was a pleasure meeting you and hearing first hand about your stay. We have a great staff here that make Kings Inn everything that it is; Dwayne is awesome. This includes having four on site members who are pool certified in the state of California, which lends to the exceptional maintenance of our pool. We are happy you enjoyed...

Kings Inn is one of the few remaining original hotels in San Diego's infamous Hotel Circle. In the 1950's this became a great stopping point in town because of its easy access to three major freeways that make it easy to get to all the fun things to see and do here. 60 years later, the location is still unbeatable....

We stayed here during Tiki Oasis and loved every moment of it. The rooms were lovely and comfortable. The pool and Spa were clean and inviting. The staff lovely. Would come back here for a visit anytime.

We hope you do come back and that you don't wait just for Tiki Oasis. We maintain our mid century aesthetic and the pool is heated year round. Thank you for choosing Kings Inn for the events.
