I found mission valley resort ok... yes the rooms are a bit dated but they are clean and comfortable. The only downside we had was the walls are thin and our neighbours talked amongst each other and on the phone all night. Also our tv didn't work... however I wasn't too fussed about that... the hotel is very reasonable and...

The first star is because the hotel staff was nice. The second is because there were no bugs. But this hotel was very dated, and the bathroom was disgusting. I was there for one night, and after looking at the shower head, I skipped the shower until I got home.

This was the creepiest hotel "resort" we have ever been to. The lights were not plugged in in our rooms and the lights outside were very dim. The door did not lock and someone walked into our room unannounced. The shower was extremely short and the paint was peeling off the tub. They gave us two tiny towels for a...

The front desk staff is great. Very nice and accommodating. It was fairly quiet. The outside is pretty and location is fairly convenient. The hotel is awful. There is no frig or microwave. There were no lights coming on when we walked in. We had to look around to find someway to turn things on. The TV remote had no...

I have not stayed in such a sketchy place in probably forever, but booked late for a conference at the Town and Country across the highway, and this was one of the only options available. It was probably a nice enough place in 1972, but it has not been updated or redecorated in many, many years. It is not a...

This hotel has a low rating for a reason. We spent 5 days here. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived at 6:15 pm. The room was clean, however there were maintenance issues such as leaky faucets and very dated decor and fixtures. The one chair in the room was so worn out you couldn't sit in it. The main...

This is a old resort that could use some updates but room was clean, easy locator and 5 min from UCSD medical center. Has a nice pool and laundry on site with a restaurant next door and a quick mart. If your in town for medical at UCSD medical center on W Arbor Drits a great location and good price.

Location Location Location. That alone will be reason enough to stay here. The only reason. First of all...the shady people digging around in trash cans and hanging out on the steps are ridiculous. My wife was VERY uneasy. The room had several things broken. The door frame with the high lock was literally off. I pounded it in with my...
