Historical Traveler Reviews Kings Inn Hotel San Diego
We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Seaworld & the Zoo. The rooms are simple but clean and comfortable. The 2 restaurants serve top class food and the staff are very friendly and attentive.
Our kids loved the large pool and spa area - a definite bonus.
Extremely close to all major attractions - 5/10 mins to Seaworld/Zoo & Old Town.
We would definitely stay here again - great value for the money.
Great Place to Stay on a Budget!
We stayed at the Kings Inn for three nights and would definately consider staying there again in the future. The location was great for the things we wanted to do in San Diego. The staff was very friendly at the hotel and the restaurant. The waffles were very good! I was leary to choose this place because of other reviews but I won't make that mistake again!
Very good choice
I want to tell you just a little great anecdote: i forgot my wallet with money, credit card and passport inside when i left hotel. I then went to L.A. and there i realized that. I called the hotel and they said that they found my wallet. I came back to san diego and they gave me the wallet with everything inside. In Italy this thing wouldn't never happen! Wonderful pool and jacuzzi. Nice and clean rooms. Very quiet and quiet cheap.
Good Budget Motel
Its a reasonable quality and priced hotel. No complaints. The jacuzzi and pool make it worthwhile.
Excellent Budget Vacation Motel
Great motel for vacationers on a budget. We also liked the food at the waffle place. Easy and quick to get to most area attractions.
Nice rooms, location only for those with rental cars
The rooms were attractive and nice. I did not notice the noisy plumbing, but we were rather exhausted. The pool was clean and inviting. The waffles in the breakfast restaurant are EXCEPTIONAL and the service was bright and cheerful. The mexican food in the evening restaurant was good and the staff there especially nice.
This is located near Hotel Circle. If you are attending events downtown, you'll need a rental car. Some conferences have buses that go to hotels in the area, so that might be an option. The nearest trolley station (Old Town) is 2 miles (I'm positive about this distance even though locals will tell you it is about 1/2 mile) down a highway with no sidewalk over 3/4 of the trip and no shoulder. (This is a long story how I know this, but trust me. It is not something you want to walk, especially at night.)
If you are on a budget and without a rental car, try the Padre Trail Inn. If you have a car and can afford an extra $10-15/night, stay here.
It would be worth the extra money just for the nice pool, laundry facilities, great staff, and the great waffles.
It was OK
The rooms were just average, the staff was nice. They let us check in early when we got in sooner than expected. Even though the rooms didn't have a coffee maker they do have coffee in the loby area. We liked the location on hotel circle.
The room was nice, had a armour with the T.V in it and a table and a couple of chairs. Staff was very nice. The Waffle resturant was good. But the plumbing is a tad noisy. Great pool area.
Adequate motel style hotel on the outskirts of San Diego. Nice pool area. Hotel has 2 restaurant, althoguh we didn't use them. Bedrooms were ok, plumbing noisy..woken up by someone showering! The hotel is about 10 minutes drive from San Diego centre. A good place to stay if you are on a budget and want to visit San Diego.
We booked through Expedia.com which gave it a 3 star rating, but we think it deserved only 2 stars. The rooms were small, no coffee maker, no hair dryer, no iron/ironing board. The room was just average, beds were comfortable though. THe plumbing was noisy, especially when the neighbors were showering.

Na toch wel een 9 maanden aftellen eindelijk kunnen vertrekken op onze droomreis! Eerst een 8uur vliegen naar Newark en dan nog een 5uur vliegen naar San Diego. Het eten tijdens de vlucht was lekker, maar een goede tip als je bij de eerste maaltijd vlees neemt, vraag dan bij de 2e maaltijd vegetarisch of je krijgt 2 keer hetzelfde vlees. Na onze …
... to San Diego' sign to greet us, which was a bit of a downer. With the path coming to an end, we were now faced with the spaghetti of the city's road network with more fly-overs than a Windsor family celebration. Navigation was difficult and at times counter-intuitive, and consultations with the locals took us even more off course. The mileage for the day was starting to rack up and the ride was starting to feel like a caricature of the ...
... over his driving licence and asked them where subway was! That must have been the strangest question anyway has asked them! There was one in the base but apparently we couldn't use that so we had to go back to the main road and start again. We then followed directions to the next subway on google maps and ended up in a residential area, so we gave up on subway and had peanut butter jelly sandwiches in the car!
We eventually made it to the lighthouse, which was part of a ...
... just unlucky, as I have friends that tell me L.A is wonderful, but I always swore I'd never set foot in it again. Rest of the drive was quite boring really, just long freeways. Arrived in San Diego mid afternoon, and it was sweltering! Had a decent room in a downtown hotel near the bay. Seeing as I'd not had a proper drink for a while, I got my glad rags on and headed out to a bar called Urban mo's. Of course wouldn't you know ...
Somehow we managed to string two hours driving down to San Diego into a two day trip ha ha! We stopped at Long Beach, which is a really nice beach, we then stopped at Newport Beach, Orange County, which most of you would associate with the OC, although it was actually filmed in Malibu and Redondo Beach (I googled it) We carried on to Encinitas, where we were staying for the night and stopped at Huntington Beach and Laguna beach, both were really nice places and the houses ...
