    Historical Traveler Reviews Kings Inn Hotel San Diego

    Great Value


    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.

    Nice Rooms


    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.

    King's Inn


    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.

    Average rating


    We booked through 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.

    What better way to deal with any issue than to openly communicate it then and there. Now it is an annoyance to me if ever I am in a situation where communication isn't happening. I am finally able to revert the addictions of running I have had instilled in me since I was a child.

    ... for we had come across many impressive, old buildings and I still found myself enjoying the atmosphere and hustle and bustle of Chinatown. The sun cast its pleasant midday rays and I refused to believe that the Lonely Planet would fail so badly. We continued to follow the paths through the alleys of Chinatown and eventually came upon something which I did find exciting. The next alley was similar to the other two, but this one had the special title of being a film location ...

    So Day 2's luck didnt continue. Basically lost the entire day and didnt end up in downtown until after 5pm. The day started off great even though Jasmine came jumping in the bed waking people up lol. Went to Denny's and had a great breakfast but in my attempts to share my excitement and love of Cons with others, we ended up waiting for Jasmine and her family the entire day and didnt get into downtown ...

    ... however still getting used to being able to turn right on red lights.

    On our first full day here in San Diego we went and checked out the Old Town and then caught a trolley into the city. San Diego is a very nice, clean and a modern looking city. And for a major city in the US it isn't very busy or have much traffic. The next day Mez got to live her dream and visit the Happiest Place on Earth... LEGO LAND!!

    Ok ...
