Way too crowded!

This airport is poorly laid out. After going through security, we were stuck in a very small round area with several gates. There was literally no where to go once past security. The food choices were poor and there was no where to sit. Also, we could not find a single charging area. In this day... read more

There aren't really many choices for food in terminal 2. We had a sandwich, fries, a salad and 2 mt dews for 33 bucks. Food and service was good but pricey. Won't eat in the airport again here.

This place is no longer called The Airport Lounge, it's El Camino. Anyway, the place is off the beaten path in Little Italy and has a mixed crowd (ages, ethnicity, and culture vary); not a lot of hipsters. While waiting to show the bouncer our ID's we say 6-8 roaches running around the door and sidewalk. Female guests were screaming... More

Wow! This airport with no real food options reflects poorly on a major California city. I was embarrassed for San Diego. Cellophane wrapped sandwiches and soft drinks in a walk up cooler. Overpriced snack food at a gift shop. Terminal 2 choices are sparse and inaccessible if you have to go to Terminal 1 where there are no restaurants. Really?... More

They need to expand the airport. The restaurant selection is pathetic. And if you manage to grab a table, it's crowded and food is sub-par. The delis offer dry, overpriced food, and good luck finding a chair while waiting for your flight. Security is fine- not too long of a wait. But once through, the terminal is crowded and seating...

I guess the airport has been remodeled since the other reviewers have been there. Very clean, easy to get in and out of and flight was off the ground within minutes of departure.

We had an ok experience here, it was easy to get to our gate and the airport is small enough that you do not have to hike 7 miles to get to your gate. I agree there is not enough food options and the price for bottled water was way too high ($3.99 for a 1 liter and $2.80 for... More

Currently sitting in Terminal 2 waiting for my flight. Thought I would write a review as there's nothing to do here! No shops, one restaurant with overpriced food and a bit of a building site around me. The chairs are very scruffy- no where nice to sit. The toilets are awful..most of them dirty and very old fashioned with no... More

I can't say I disagree with the other reviewers. The food selection, or lack thereof, made our preflight wait at the airport less than pleasant. We were told that food selections were limited due to airport renovation. Needless to say they were limited to pizza and over priced sandwich selections. If you're a vegetarian or allergic to nuts, you'll be... More

Just got back from San Diego. I did a hotel review but left out our horrible experience at the airport. We had a 5pm flight so figured we could get supper at the airport. To our surprise there is crappy pizza and expensive sandwiches. Being a diabetic there was absolutly nothing for me to eat. We had a coffee and... More
