Hotel's Favourite
Kings Inn is great place for a less expensive price than surrounding accommodations. My biggest concern when renting a room is cleanliness. This place was clean. We also received daily room cleaning which not all places are back to yet. The bathroom is on the small side but fully modern. Our room had been updated and everything was in good working order. It has a nice pool and spa and an area next to the pool with seating and tables for socializing. We actually brought back food a couple of times for the family and ate there as it was very pleasant. There was a fridge in the room but the only microwave we found was located in the guest laundry room. I want to give a shout out for exceptional customer service, especially Greg the night manager. He put up with my family every day providing us with new room keys and any other request we made. It is centrally located to all tourist attractions with easy on/off access to the freeways. There are two restaurants on site. We ate at the Waffle Spot – fantastic food. However, the other restaurant was Mexican food, and we didn’t eat there. There is another walkable restaurant (Crust Kitchen – good food) and a liquor store. Anything else would have to be driven to. This is a place I can highly recommend and would stay at again.

Clean rooms. Fantastic hot tub. Friendly. Beds were comfortable. Tiny bathroom space. Only real downside was communication to reserve the room. Prices on their website didn’t align with what I was quoted when I called to reserve and there was no effort from the desk clerk to match the price on their own website. I was just told to “reserve it online then.”

We stayed in a remodeled room on the second floor. Very clean and a comfortable bed. The Waffle Spot is convenient and has a great breakfast. The Amigo Spot has a nice bar.. Mostly locals at the bar. The food in the restaurant is very good.

We stayed at Kings Inn the last week of December 2022. I thought the retro style was cute and good location is why we booked. Clean! We had a king room on the second floor which was huge! Updated but had a new retro looking fridge. Only issues is toilet was really small, the furniture on the balcony was old and falling apart, we could not use it. The hotel is close to main road and freeway so it was noisy outside. That was not an issue once we closed the door. Staff is friendly and helpful at the desk and in the restaurant. The Waffle Spot restaurant in the hotel was fantastic! Old - school diner,great prices, and the food is delicious! We ate breakfast there everyday on our trip. They have mini waffles,had mine with strawberry compote,yummy. This is a great location if you are using public transit, bus stop right in front will take you to Fashion Valley Transit Center and Old Town Transit Center. We skipped renting a car and used trains, bus, and hop on and off trolley for the trip. The Pool and hot tub were available and heated , outdoor bar area looked like fun in summer time. Not fancy and basic amenities is what we were looking for and found this cute treasure! Would stay here on our next trip to SD. Check out my pictures and you will see! Thank you Kings Inn for a great stay!

Loved everything about the hotel, the vibe the location and the staff. Pool was great rooms were clean parking was sufficient. We were a party of 10 with 4 rooms and kids. Everyone enjoyed them selves at this hotel. thank you for Canada. The traffic from the hiway was a little loud if you were to stand in front of the hotel, but in the rooms and in the pool area it was no noticable.

Hotel was great. Clean and while you had to pay for parking, there was plenty available. This hotel is close to everything so we never had to travel far. We brought our dog with us and she had plenty of space in the room with us. The waffle restaurant there is 10/10. If you are looking for an affordable stay, this is it.

I read SO many reviews prior to booking here. I usually stay at mid range hotels and never motels, but this place had an amazing price and amazing reviews. BELIEVE THEM. The breakfast at the restaurant next door was incredible every morning! Our room was clean, well kept, well maintained and perfect for our stay. Everything worked as it should, we felt very safe the entire week and every employee was super friendly and helpful. I would absolutely book another stay here without hesitation. We were a family of four (mom and 3 kids) and had enough room for us all. We spent our days sightseeing so only came here to sleep. Oh, and it was so peaceful and quiet at night - hallelujah!
