10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Rooms were super clean and updated. Good channel selection on tv. Staff was super friendly and accommodating, even let us move rooms to avoid office construction noise.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Very cute little place. Perfect location -- close to airport, easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. Incredible value for those traveling on a budget. Very nice staff. Great little breakfast cafe. Beautiful pool and outdoor patio facilities. The room is nothing fancy, but very clean and comfortable.
Cons:The last night, our upstairs neighbors were VERY heavy-footed. That 's the only time we've ever had a problem with noise; have stayed here several times over the past three years.
8.0 Very good
Pros:well maintained, even if dated
Cons:noisy guests
8.2 Very good
Pros:Rooms were standard, clean enough, beds comfortable enough, etc. BUT the waffle spot, now there's where this place stands out. Imagine the best waffles of your life, just a 2 minute walk from your room! Definitely the best part of the stay. Would highly recommend the blueberry waffles.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Nice older hotel, great value
Cons:Was a bit noisy near the pool
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The Staff is wonderful. The hotel is one of the cleanest I have ever stayed. Food was good and the Bartender fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel.
8.2 Very good
Pros:The staff, from the manager to the cleaning staff exceeded great. They were all so helpful, patient and went above and beyond helping us with ANY inquiries. The restaurant (mexican) and the Waffle Spot were both FABULOUS! I can't applaud the staff enough! The day we arrived San Diego was having the WORST rain storms in over five years! We requested an upstairs room due to the flooding. But the staff went above and beyond in getting us settled, provided extra requests from us with NO HESITATION! I would recommend the KINGS INN if you want open hospitality and NICE PEOPLE!

Cons:A little outdated Nice from freeway if your your faces freeway
7.4 Good
Cons:Wasnt able to check in until after 5:00 PM. That, to me was unreasonable. Something to do with short staffed in the houysekeeping dept. I flew in from HNL via Seattle so was shelled and didnt appreciate waithing so long to get my room.
