OK.. this is far from being "a dump".... you want a "dump", hit some of the ol' motels down town or down on Broadway. This is actually a nice place to stay generally. I've stayed here 4 or 5 times and never had a really bad experience. Normally clean and pretty comfortable. It is not the Marriott or whatever but, you get what you pay for normally.. My negitive observations are primarilly the following: Prices seem to be all over the place and, yes it is expensive for this hotel (especially the "summer rates"). The in-house "bar" pricing is way high. I don't even go in there any more. And, the pool is treated with salt instead of "other options" and not as comfortabe because of it as most pools in other hotels. Now, one of the best reasons to stay there is "The Waffle House" is really wonderful in my opinion...good food and great atmosphere.

Live like a king, pay like a pauper

Drove into San Diego on a whim and found this place on I-8. I chose it because of the cool sign. It was a bit retro and I like retro.

The lobby was very throwback but the agent was professional and I got a great rate. Also got discounts to both of the hotel's restaurants. She gave me an upgrade to a poolside room.

Parking was easy. Pool looked inviting. The room, well, still working on older bedspreads and curtains, but was fine. The bathroom and TV are both a little small, but I didn't spend much time with either of them.

Free appetizers during Happy Hour and good margaritas were a plus. And in the morning I ate a bacon waffle at The Waffle Spot. Tasty! And the cartoon characters of Breakfast foods were hilarious.

Definitely a good value and for those of us who don't want a cookie cutter experience. This place is a good find.

A Dump.

This place was a total dump. Our room was musty and smelled of mold. The carpet was damp, presumably with mold or some sort of water damage, causing the smell. We shook out a centipede out of the bed, there were earwigs crawling all around. The only good thing I can say about the place is that the hot tub was nice, that's about it. Spend an extra 20 bucks a night and go stay somewhere nice. This place should be called ""Bums Inn"" not Kings Inn.
