The King's Inn was uncomfortable for me. The air conditioning was loud and erratic on-off-on-off-etc all night. The bed covers were too thin. The location is very convenient. The guy in the Waffle King costume is pretty cheesy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK for a low price 2 star hotel"
Discount shown on hotels.Com is overstayed.the 69.00 I paid is all the normal rate should be. Room renovations were cheaply done and room smelled. Bed was hard. Vending machine took money without giving soda. Front desk didn't even offer refund.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"centrally located perfect area"
Sandy working the reservation desk was very helpful thru our stay she looked up stuff for us and answered all our question and gave us directions to the areas we wanted to go. she deserves a big Thanks from usGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK hotel for a low price"
You get what you paid for. OK rooms, clean (except for some mold in the shower). Downside not as near at sea world as the adds was telling. Right next to the interstate. Free wifi. Good Mexican place in the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"San Diego Visit"
Older property with few amenities and hard beds. If all you need is a place to rest at the end of the day and don't need "fluff" then this is the place. Breakfast at the onsite restaurant has good waffles.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Quiet, clean room. Attractive setting. Service with a smile. Couldn't hear outside traffic or conversations while in room. Great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Way nicer than it looks I promise!"
They have a beautiful pool that is heated and 9 feet deep! The hot tub is large and welcoming as well. Rooms are clean and spacious, bed is comfortable, and room is equipped with HDTVs which are pretty rare at a lot of (less expensive of course) hotels that I've stayed in in San Diego. The Wifi is actually quite fast and I was able to stream TV shows […] on it. The best part of this place, besides the cool and retro interior style (its extremely old but in a modern and maintained way only..) would have to be their restaurant place the Waffle Spot. TO DIE FOR waffles.... I alsso ate at the amigo spot their mexican restaurant and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food there and the prices were great. They even have happy hour appetizers that are APPETIZING and under $5. Which is just awesome. If you stay at the hotel they give you a discount coupon for both restaurants. Overall I love this place and will be back very soon! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"2014 Family Trip"
My parents stayed here a few years ago and suggested us to stay here and we will definitely be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms were nice with soft beds, flat screen tv, and a Mini fridge. Really nice pool and lounge areas. My kids loved it! They have the best waffles at the waffle spot and the service was incredibly fast and friendly. Will definitely stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good Budget Hotel"
It was a fairly nice place for the cost. The front desk staff were great as they were super friendly and helpful in providing information about the area. Great locations as the hotel is nice and close to the beach, Sea World, old town, etc. The only negative aspect was that the carpet was exceptionally dirty and just from walking on it, it made the […] bottom of our feet completely black, so we would have to wash them before getting into bed. Also the bathroom was very small, but it is an old hotel so that is excusable given that the rest of the room was nice and large. The shower head was very very low, so if you are close to 6', your have to crouch. Beds are comfy and the fridge is nice and large. Like I said, overall a nice place for the lost cost. We would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Foster the Beatle!"
I absolutely loved my stay at the Kings Inn Hotel. I went to San Diego to see two of my faves in concert (Foster the People & Paul McCartney). The rooms felt just like home. Very spacious and clean. The staff was super friendly, groovy music playing on the radio, and the lobby had a 70's, kinda brady bunch vibe. I would definitely go back to this hotel. […] It is close to the major freeways. I was at my destinations in no time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older rooms, but recenlty updated beds and linens"
This is an older property, but they did have updated comfortable beds and linens and decor. The staff was friendly and the pool and hot tub area were clean. But it is an older property...so if you're wanting totally modern...this wouldn't be for you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"On hotel circle great for shoppers!"
Only spent one night to give easy access to airport. Hotel is very nice and clean with pool and hot tub. Close to great shopping in Fashion Valley. Nice restaurants attached. Close to busy Interstate but very little highway noise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"easy access to beaches!"
Everything was up to our expectations. Only negative we had was we ordered drinks to be brought to the pool. Waiter brought drinks and said there was trouble charging them to our room, could we pay cash. Who carries cash to the pool and he didn't even have a bill for us. When we asked how much they were he said I THINK $18 something? A little expensive […] e not to mention my husband had to go back to our room, get money and then the waiter didn't even have change. When we cked out the charge was also on our room! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything!"
We had 2 rooms both the same (2 queens) ... one room was considerably nicer than the other as the bathtub nozzle was broken in one of them. It was quiet and I slept well. Staff are super friendly and overall it was a decent stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"wknd in san diego"
older style hotel but with a modern inside, no complaints hereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Could be so much nicer"
With a friendly staff and proximity to local sites, the Kings Inn has a lot to offer, and in a world of cookie-cutter hotels, this 1950s property stands out as unique. But its position beside a busy highway makes for a very noisy visit; we stayed 2 nights, and I didn't sleep much, even using ear plugs. If they could at least upgrade with sound-abatement […] windows -- especially for the rooms closest to the highway -- it would make for a much more pleasant stay, and a decent night's sleep.

Mostly very satisfied with this hotel. Only complaint is the AC was noisy and took a long time to cool the room down on a hot evening.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value, central location"
Well run motel in the center of Mission Valley. Nice sized rooms, comfortable beds. Convenient restaurant for breakfast, the Waffle House, lots iof parking and easy acess to interstate 8. Free WiFi, but very slow, except in Lobby. Nice sized pool, too. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Staff, dirty carpet"
Really pleased with the staff, restaurant and breakfast place (the waffle spot) Really disappointed with the carpet (dirty and moldy)Genuine Expedia guest review
I always like my stay...comfortable, clean, everything I need at a reasonable price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel for the money. Great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were disappointed pool area was closed due to a guest using it for the wrong thing. But the front desk made it right for us! They made sure we were better about the situation and made our stay a good one. I will defentiely book them again when in San Diego!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"2 night stay for ballgame and zoo"
Hotel was an older hotel, needs to be remodeled. The beds were HARD. For the price you could overlook the run down feeling if the beds were soft, but they are the usual FIRM metal spring mattress with little padding. Hotel has a small outdoor swimming pool, and a waffle restaurant on site. Staff was very friendly and helpful. If I had it to do again […] would spend a few more dollars to find a more comfortable bed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beat the Heat"
We very much enjoyed our stay at the King's Inn. It was conveniently located to all the things we wanted to do. The room was very clean and comfortable. Our room opened on to the courtyard near the pool, but there was no noise to be heard from the guests that were using the pool. The pool was beautiful and well maintained. We ate at both the restaurants […] on site. I would definitely recommend the fish tacos at the Mexican restaurant. This will be our go to spot when we visit San Diego in the future! Great value in this hotel! Also, the front desk staff was very helpful in taking care of our needs as well as the maid service. Excellent!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't stay here!!!!"
This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I was lied to by the front desk staff in regards to a hotels.com issue. The food we put in the refrigerator froze. There was hair hanging in the shower. There was not enough room to get dressed in the bathroom, I would have appreciated the privacy. The room as well as the lobby smelled like the rugs had […] gotten wet and not dried properly. There was an iron burn in the rug in our room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
When we arrived hey had a hard time pulling up our itinerary. I called my husband who made the reservation for us, and he asked me to ask the hotel staff to call Expedia. she shook her finger at me and said "no no no, he needs to do it, that's between him and the 3rd party website" he calls, and Expedia does a 3 way call to the hotel. I'm standing in […] the lobby and she says "Oh here it is, it was a reinstated policy" so apparently it had been in the system the whole time? We finally get checked in, and go to our room. it smelled like stale, wet, mildew, disgusting. We get another room that has ants. On the 3rd night, I tell them we have ants, (there were just a few the first night, and assumed we brought them in from having a stroller at Sea World all day) so there are ants all over the shower, my niece is flipping out, and the staffs solution was to spray the room. Which was something we didn't feel comfortable doing (pregnant sister, 3 year old niece, 2 year old daughter, and 2 month old son). Our air stopped working in the middle of the night, and the tv was fuzzy. If it had been just me, I would have dealt, But it was just too much. I feel like for the price, we could have stayed somewhere better, for the same, or even less. the Amigos Spot had "ok" food, our server was great, goofy, but really took care of us, and her other tables too. unfortunately I can't say the same for the Waffle Spot.

"Had a great experience"
Only stayed for one night but we had no problems. The rooms were clean and the pool area was really nice. The only thing was I think they must have a swamp cooler vs central air. It felt a little damp to me in there. It was cool but damp. The service was very good, everyone was friendly and helpful. The food at the diner "The Waffle Spot" located in […] the lobby was excellent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very happy with our stay!"
I agonized over not having enough funds for a "on the beach hotel stay" but I am so happy we went with Kings Inn. I honestly did not know what to expect and read decent reviews, the cost was within our budget and we were pleasantly surprised! The staff was great, the Waffle Spot had amazing food, and there are laundry facilities which saved us. Our […] room was clean and the beds were comfortable. With two kids we had lots of fruit and drinks (water, juice, milk) with us and the refrigerators were the bigger size which was amazing. There was a coffee machine, free, in the main lobby so every morning we walked in for coffee. There was an awesome seating area by the pool and the kids had alot of fun! In between the beds was a side table which had two charging stations/plugs and usb for all our devices each night. We can't wait to return and enjoy our next stay. Sad when it was time to leave. The only issue we had were a few ants, but the front desk and maintenance were quick to respond and spray with some organic cinnamon spray which was not an issue. I think the way people respond when there are issues says alot about the place. We did need to throw out our food each night and watch what was left out as they indicated the ants look for food so placing everything in the fridge was a great tip from the staff.

Very satisfied with the location and the Hotel. However, at the time we were staying there, construction was going on directly below our room. The construction itself was not a problem except it started way too early. The workers started to operate power tools about 6:30 AM which I think is too early. A more reasonable start time would have been 8 […] AM. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not worth the $$$. Internet connection is so slow and most of the time not connecting. Room is so small just enough space to fit our luggages at the bottom of the beds. Bathroom is tiny. Use of computer and printing has extra fee. So is the use of microwave and fridge. Won't stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review

Very nice, affordable, clean, friendly hotel. Waffle Spot was great for breakfast. Would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Outdated hotel, dirty carpets made the bottom of my feet black after 5 min. Beds ok, room ok, small. Shower head was set for a child, adults had to bend down to get head wet. Pool and hot tub were nice. Won't stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Pretty good other than urine smell"
Other than the initial urine smell in my room for first hour this hotel had a great location and the rooms were better than expected. Has it own waffle spot and bar and grill which was pretty cool. The maids came everyday on call. The sheets and covers were very clean. So my stay at the kings inn wasnt half bad!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
