The Kings Inn may not be like the fancy, big name hotels that surround it, but it had that small town charm with very friendly, helpful staff. The rooms aren't huge but adequate for sleeping and very clean. You can tell the owners have done some updating. The hotel is located in Hotel Circle and is a 5 minute drive to SeaWorld, Mission Beach/Belmont Park and Balboa park where the Zoo is among many other museums.
There are 2 restaurants on site - one open during the day The Waffle Spot and the other open in the evening called The Amigo Spot. We ate at both and had amazing service and food. We got a percentage off the bill for staying at the hotel which was a nice touch. There are also washers and dryers available to guests which we used.
The highlight of the hotel for us was the pool area. It's nicely secluded from the major roads with lots of trees. The pool is heated and there was a hot tub to use as well. Our family used it everyday to unwind after our long days of touring around San Diego.
Once you get used to the sprawling lay-out of the facilities, it is pretty easy to navigate your way around. It isn't like a traditional property where everything is in one building, in fact almost everything is in 'another building'. But with 2 pools to choose from, large outdoor hot tub, well equipped gym / spa, and a variety of room formats to choose from, it makes from an entertaining stay. It was also half the rate of the other properties available at the time of our travel which was over a long weekend.
Very nice hotel. We stayed in a room with a patio which made the room feel small. Beds seem smaller than regular beds too but overall loved staying there. Pool area is beautiful! Will definitely stay here again. This trip was to Sea World which was perfect because this hotel was only a few miles away.
Reserved a room here for a lovely weekend staycation to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. It's centrally located, convenient kitchenette, clean, and very friendly staff. The bed could be more comfortable but we only stayed two nights. It may be an issue to consider for longer stays. Overall, wonderful experience.
Upon arrival it took 10 minuets to get anyone to the front desk, not to mention it stinch of leftover curry. The parking lot was extra small and there were only 3 towels in the room. I really wanted my money back.
Checking in and out was super fast and easy. The staff was very helpful and informative about everything we inquired about. We were in town to catch a game at Petco field. We were able to catch the trolley near the hotel that then dropped us right by the field!
