I came here for the Ed Sheeran concert in June 2015. Living in Orange County, I had the option of coming down to SD or driving north to the Hollywood Bowl. Having attended a concert at the Bowl before, I opted for this venue to avoid dealing with Hollywood Blvd and the $30-$40 parking fees you inevitably pay in the... More

We used to go to this casino regularly until they remodeled. After that the staff got an attitude and seems to generally forget that people are spending money. The staff is rude, but also the patrons. It seems they cater mainly to tribal members and VIP's. Buffet is over $40 and though they have seafood there are better casinos with... More

I have lived in San Diego for my entire life and The Valley View Casino Center is without a doubt the city's best place for entertainment. It is an older building so it has a special charm and character. They are proud of their history and have beautiful murals all over the building of famous artist that have performed there... More

Just bought the new AHL Gulls tickets! Second row four seats, cannot wait. Riptide was the absolute bomb! Best sports team in town, I... More

First of all - make sure you are reviewing the correct place!!! This is for the Valley View Casino Center - NOT THE CASINO!!!! So anyhow, this review is for the Valley View Casino Center, as it should be. Parking is $20 which is a joke. $20, are you kidding me??? Come on, I can see $5 or something but... More

Difficult to get to concessions and restrooms. Difficult to get to vendor tables. Everything located at top of arena. Should have a middle section. Restroom toilets stopped flushing in one specific restroom. Concession stands were limited in selection. Very disappointed with this arena.

Went to watch preseason Laker game and was disappointed in just about every aspect! It's so old and dirty that I couldn't wait to leave! It wax built back in the late 80's and it shows! The ceiling looks like it's about to drop, the seats are vinyl and the floor is black from stains and dirt. It was warm... More

My first visit to the Sports Arena in years, not much as changed. The seats were comfortable the action was easily seen. Generally happy with the entire experience. The arena could do with some updates but for our purposes and the price we paid a great evening. Absolutely no issue with parking, although it was a little steep at $20.
