I stayed at this hotel last year and booked through JetBlue. Horrible mistake. The trip was for me and my son and it was our first trip to Cali and the hotel was a disappointment. It was in dire need of repair. The bathroom was horrible and dirty and this was an upgraded room. I made my son shower with... More

I've been to San Diego before, but this was the first time I stayed at this hotel. I got a very low price online, and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. The rooms are a bit run down, but clean. The staff was very nice, and I liked the sports bar. Overall, I would have expected less... More

Recently, while on a business trip, I booked two nights at the Mission Valley Resort. My company had put me up in a expensive down-town hotel for two nights and I elected to stay on my own dime for a few days just for a little R&R. The company paid hotel was $200/night. I could go on and on about... More

We have stayed here several times now, This hotel is good IF YOU book one of the superior rooms. The standard rooms are fair but outdated. The price is reflective of that. It is well worth the extra $10 a night to book the superior room. The standard rooms are very small but you can get them cheap on their... More

It's not the ritz but for $40 it was just what I needed! Great location, nice staff, super basic, but I'd come back especially in the summer so I could get in one of their awesome pools.

Last year I had a big party in one of the banquet rooms. I even stayed in one of the rooms. I was able to give a great review then. But I didn't know about the other rooms being so bad. The room we had was much better than the one we just rented over Thanksgiving. This time we rented... More

Long line to check in with an 16 year old front desk clerk. Make sure to keep yourself busy as You hear everything in rooms along side and above. Nearby diner is average but very friendly. Overall blahh but on an tight budget it works.

They call this place a resort, but instead you should picture a 1960's motel that is old and run down. Yes, it is large with a lot of land, but the land is mostly asphalt. One of the pools and the tennis court are actually at the fitness center behind the hotel. We were never invited to use the facilities... More

One can put up with the somewhat funky rooms for the price, They are very spacious and the upgraded rooms for an extra $ 5 look over the pool and landscaping from a spacious balcony.
