Because we stay in a hotel 3 nights a week, we are always looking for a change of pace. Boy, did we find it. This place, while it looks wonderful from the outside, all tropical plants, sparkling pool, big shady trees ..... it is a pit. Our first room wasn't even vacuumed, the remote for the TV was missing, so... More

Mission Valley Resort is a great place to stay when in San Diego. The Resort has a fantastic pool area with hot tub, the grounds are nice. There is a restaurant, bar and convenience store on premises. There also is a Gym and guest laundry. The location is very good to go to beaches, Little Italy, Gaslamp, anywhere. The Hotel... More

Convenient, well-managed, clean enough. A complex of several buildings with motel-type units on three floors. Lots of space. Nice pool, shuffleboard, etc. Probably built in the 1950s and 60s, but so was I, so that's fine. Convenient to the freeway, although with a slightly sudden entrance ramp. Convenient to major malls. Convenient to Old Town, and not that bad for... More

We stayed 10 days in the Southwest US and unfortunately this "resort???" was our last nights accomodation. Place was dated filthy and unkept, the grounds were deplorable. I can only assume by the odors in the room that the chalk outline from the previous guest has been recently removed. There are far better choices on Hotel Circle.

I found this place to be slow to check in, The photos on your website did not reflect what it was really like. The grounds were extremely unkept. The room was dirty, the bed was uncomfortable. The characters hangining around the place were scary. The bartender was obnoxious.it was way over priced for the value. I would suggest you remove... More

Hi Mike, We enjoyed our visit, and appreciate we were able to have the room we enjoy so much! The staff in the bar and restaurant were once again exceptional. The food was wonderful. My husband loves the cheeseburger and the tuna sandwich I like to get was the best ever. We were disappointed not to see Mike in the... More

I found this hotel online for a good price and booked it 2 weeks in advance to our trip to San Diego. The pictures on the website made the room like spacious, nice and clean, but it was anything BUT that! We arrived around 1am, and the night staff was absolutely RUDE! When we got to our room, there were... More

The Mission Valley Resort... Might be a resort for the endless screaming hookers fighting, police sirens and filthy rooms, but if you are an average person STAY AWAY! This was the scariest, filthiest, place I have every been in. We stayed about 4 hours before we bailed all the fighting outside we felt like we were in a war zone... More

You know what you think of when you think resort. Add in this is beautiful San Diego. Well this is the opposite of that, it's closer to a scary Reno, NV motor lodge than a delightful resort. I made the mistake (or did I) of paying more for a "Deluxe" room. Could a regular room been worse? Some of the... More
