About Kings Inn San Diego - Seaworld - Zoo

A vintage bargain by San Diego beaches

SeaWorld and the zoo

Centrally located in Mission Valley, Kings Inn San Diego - Seaworld - Zoo puts you close to popular San Diego spots like Little Italy, an 8-minute drive away. You can check out the world-famous zoo, see a marine show at SeaWorld, and relax on one of the great nearby beaches.

Mission Bay sands

You'll be a 5-minute drive from the stroller's paradise of San Diego's Old Town at the budget-friendly, old-school hotel. For something more relaxed, guests can enjoy the nearby beaches just a short drive away.

Biggest pool in town

You can take a dip in one of the town's biggest pools - it's heated and has a spa tub. After your swim, you could grab a happy-hour drink at Amigo Spot, which features live entertainment every weekend.

Classic surf decor

You'll find a real throwback experience in guestrooms that are decorated with vintage photographs of San Diego surfers. But you can stay modern with free WiFi and a flat-screen TV with cable channels.

Fun stay with retro feel.
Enjoyed our stay and the retro feel. Staff were friendly and helpful with good deals on SeaWorld and the zoo, plus the onsite waffle restaurant was good. Just two grumbles, bath fittings could do with updating and smoking area in middle of courtyard left a lingering smell in outside area.

Spotlessly clean!
The hotel was clean and the pool and hot tub great. Not so great was the teeny tiny bathroom, the lumpy pillows and the horrendous wi-fi. It's only about a 5 minute drive from the Old Town so central enough. We'd recommend Perry's cafe for breakfast which was a 3 minute drive away.

Great motel. Book with confidence.
Started our Highway 1 trip in San Diego. The Kings Inn was well located to get around San Diego, with a good Mexican restaurant attached if you want to ear close to home. The room was beautifully appointed and the pool was a great bonus after a long day's drive. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We could find nothing that we didn't like about the motel. Thoroughly recommend.

Great room
Great room in a good location. Massive comfy bed. Access to swimming pool and jacuzzi. Not too noisy despite lots of families with children

I’d go again
Great value for money. Two good restaurants and friendly staff throughout. Good location which is a short taxi from old town.
