I've stayed in 3rd world hostiles cleaner than this. We booked online during memorial day weekend, the rate was the cheapest we found. We were first given the wrong room, came with an extra bed, no big deal until we found a COCKROACH on the bed. The room was filthy. Immediately we returned to the lobby and waited in line... More

Based on previous reviews, our stay was better than expected. Outside our room the concrete was badly stained and painting was overdue. Once inside, things improved. Our dated room was clean with new carpeting. Shower was perfect in a drought-stricken state. We don't need heavy water pressure to get clean. Walls were thin but we had courteous neighbors and slept... More

Staff is friendly and courteous including Bar, Restaurant, and Maintenance. My guess is they are all underpaid since it looks like ownership puts next to nothing back into the place. I have stayed all over SD in the last six months and decided to give it a try. Yes its older and and needs some tlc as expected Everything is... More

We just had to leave this hotel and find another one at the last minute because of how awful this place is. First, we felt unsafe right when we pulled up and noticed a lot of fishy people just lingering around. Then, we get our room key and drive over to see that someone else was given the same room....

Mission valley resort is a great location for tourists on a tight budget. I managed to get the room for 3 nights (week day) for around $175, so the price is great. You can forget about them coming to clean your room, unless you really press the issue. Our beds were not made in the 3 days we spent here,... More

Walked into our room to see mold in the shower, a chair was disgustingly filthy, bed sheets had not been changed since who knows when. Turned right around, walked to the front desk, said we weren't staying there, and went to the Hampton Inn.

It is a shame that what could be a very nice property has been neglected for so long. I am referring to the rooms. If the bathroom exhaust worked you could cut down on the mold. The rugs looked like a mosaic of filth. They must be ripped out and replaced. Get new flat screen TVs and pipe in more... More

My family and I visit San Diego often. On this last trip we stayed at this hotel. It is older but a great value. The rooms were comfortable, staff wonderful, perfect location for us. Restaurant, lounge and store all within walking distance. The grounds well kept, pool and facilities clean and enjoyable.
