Zoo trip 2023
Overall not too bad. Had a bit higher expectation based on AD description. Rooms looked newly renovated and a lot of preseason maintenance going on. Room size ok for a single or a couple, however for a family, way too small. Staff was very friendly and attentive.

6/10 Good

Just Ok
Rooms haven’t been updated in a while. The bathroom was extremely small. The mattress was very uncomfortable and the pillows weren’t great either. Liked the pool & spa. Also liked that there were 2 restaurants located at the hotel.

2/10 Poor

Never again!
This is an older hotel. The pictures provided make it look so much better then what it is. The beds were absolutely horrible. All of us lost a lot of sleep due to that!

Very friendly place with good food!
The staff is just incredible here! They are SO kind and smoking and so ready to help, no matter what time. Also having the 2 VERY good restaurants smack in the lobby of this small hotel is super convenient. The service is excellent and the food surprisingly great in both the breakfast place and the dinner/bar restaurant. The rooms are fine. Very basic but clean and fresh. The beds were actually VERY good as well. For the price, it was well worth it and I will continue to use King’s Inn as my stopover hotel in San Diego, especially when on a budget! 😊
