8/10 Very Good

I enjoyed my stay. While this is definitely a 2-star motel, it is mostly clean and very well maintained. The vibe is very 50's, and that was fun. I originally booked this place, because said it was close to the airport - it is not. It is only 20 minutes away, though. The bed was comfortable and the Waffle Spot (attached restaurant) was pretty good.

Great stay!
I loved this little place. Staff was friendly, rooms were clean and both restaurants were good. The lobby is so cute and the place has a great vibe. It's quiet, even on a weekend. Only thing I would change is better coffee in rooms or available in lobby.

Kings Inn
A great place to stay for families and couples. The location was fantastic. It is super convenient to everything the city of San Diego has to offer. Also, my wife and I would like to extend our gratitude to the hotel manager Sandy and Macraena. During our stay a certain matter was brought to their attention. The problem was appropriately addressed and handled to our satisfaction. We were very pleased and impressed with their prompt actions. Our stay was an enjoyable experience. Thank you, George and Jackie
