Had a blast with my daughter. If you really don't like being around a lot of people, then stay away. Otherwise it is fantastic!!!

I attend many scientific conferences, and this convention center is always one of the best run. The location is second to none, with fantastic year-round weather and the gaslamp right across the street. Comic-con is also held here annually, and it really can only be held here. The food at the convention center is so-so.

Went there for Comicon. Well organised event and good facilities. If going to Comicon get tickets for at least two days. 1 is not enough as the crowds are manic.

This conventional hall is super easy to get to and huge. It is across the street from the GasLamp Village and the Metro. It handles ComiCon very well. Food prices are standard convention prices but head across the street and the options open up. The shuttle services are on time and run 24/7 while your convention is going.

Back for another Comic-con convention! Enjoyed ourselves again at this location. The place is set up fairly well for the amount of people going in and out. The staff and security were also helpful and pleasant. This year we took the green line Trolly and will be using it from now on - it definitely made getting around easier and... More

Located just across from downtown & PETCO on the Trolley line. The trolley line access gives you a myriad of locations to stay in San Diego. You can cross the trolley line or take the swooping pedestrian bridge with it's view of the harbor and Coronado Bridge. The facility is very large, so depending on which part of the convention...

The San Diego Convention Center is one of the nicest convention centers I've been in. It's well maintained but the backside has access to the boardwalk and homeless people tend to hang out there at night.
