The lone nut spent the better part of a half hour dancing by his lonesome. Poor guy. He was not a lunatic, and I was out to prove it. I joined him mid- song; stomping my feet, clapping my hands and swaying my body back and forth. Pretty soon, dancing became the “thang” and the whole crowd got involved. Now it was a show! J

... not only that we were able to do so but that my concerned husband completely agreed. I did not want to miss Joshua Tree and was pretty upset about it, but it turns out that it was a great decision to head towards the coast. We arrived in San Diego mid-afternoon and got the Scamp situated outside of our host Laura’s apartment complex. Husb carried up the essentials we would need and I took to the couch immediately, still in pain and hoping with all ...
Early start for us, on the road at 7am, after 4hrs, 221 miles of driving we arrived at San Diego, couple of traffic jams en route, though love the car pool lanes which meant, as we had two people in our vehicle, we could enter the fast lane and away we go.
This was only a day trip here, as so many people recommended a ...
... tables are rustic kitchen style with burlap wrapped chairs. There are chalk drawing atop some of the walls, but the main focus is the large, orange, tastefully-done graffiti wall which is a showstopper.
The both the drink menu and the dining menu are filled with creativity and inspiration that makes it hard to choose which beverage and food item you will want to try first. It is one of those restaurants where, if you had a stomach the size of an elephant, you would want to try ...

Also, as with any family reunion there are always little issues and in my opinion James and I have our share of issues just like any other siblings would. Unfortunately, I feel these issues are the reason we can’t be as close as I’d honestly like to be.

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.
