Parking is a bit of challenge.

Attended many functions here, and always pleased with the security and cleanliness of the facility. I will return whenever something of interest is presented.

We took our daughter to see Cinderella. We were pretty high up but could still see perfectly. Great performance. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. I would highly recommend!

This is a great place to see a hockey game! Not a bad seat in the house. Friendly, helpful staff. Good food. Fair prices. I love to take my grand kids here.

Went to our first Saber Cats game. The SAP center was awesome-however they could have had more food options open.

If you are in town during the Arena Football season - check out a Sabercats game. It is very fan friendly, and a great game for the whole family. Parking is easy either at SAP or one of the parking lots across the street.

There is simply not a bad seat for watching NHL action. The seating areas are all right on top of the action, and the fan base is as into it as any fan-base in the league. It used to be known as the loudest building in hockey, though with the team's recent struggles the standard sell-out streak all season isn't... More

I've been to the SAP center several of times and actually worked there for a brief time in High School. I've been to many concerts here and find it a great place for these sorts of events. The location is conveniently off the 87 and 280 freeway and there is always plenty of parking.

It's a nice venue in the sense it's small, and the layout is great. The bathrooms are clean and the food and beverage areas are plentiful and well staffed. If you're going their for a concert, don't hold your breath expecting to hear a wonderful performance.

This place is so old. It could use a major upgrade. If you go there for an event, make sure you figure out your parking situation prior. Parking at an event can easily be $25-30. It can be horrible to leave at the end of the event. You will have hawkers trying to sell you stuff. You will have Mexican... More
