“Great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2010

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 2 yo daughter. Gave up a teeny-tiny room with a microwave and fridge for a more spacious room sans micro and fridge, but double beds. Rooms are updated and very clean. Conveniently located near freeway, so easy to get around San Diego, and I believe the trolly is near by as well. Even though it is next to the freeway, the noise was not an issue for us.

Breakfast was good, very well stocked, so no issue as to what time you showed up for it. Internet access was great.

Management called us on our second day and had to switch our room, yet again, for a plumbing issue (don't know if it was adjacent to us), but they were very kind about it, and we had no issue moving. Luckily they caught us before we left for the zoo.

It’s always nice to hear positive feedback from our guest. The guests are always shocked when they don’t hear any highway nose in their room. It’s not as bad as it looks with the rooms facing the freeway. Ramada Mission Valley is located a block from the Trolley line- Grantville Station so it is very easy for people who are travelling without a car.

We just returned from a five night stay at the Ramada Mission Valley. Everything was in order...no funky smells, everything worked, the staff was friendly, pool/rooms/lobby were very clean. The beds and pillows were also comfy...we expected less considering the price! The breakfast area each morning blew away our expectations by far...fresh toast, milk, coffee, juices, eggs, fruit, waffles, bagels, muffins and pastries! So, we got 20 breakfasts and our room for five nights...all for an amazing price! This hotel was 12 minutes from the Zoo and Seaworld, 14 minutes from downtown, and 18 minutes from Coronado. It is very close to Qualcomm stadium and several nice malls. Lots of good restaurants in the area too! We will be back!

Everyone at the Inn from the front desk to the cleaning crew where all super nice . The trolley station is next to the Inn , which makes going to Charger games really convenient . A good value for the dollar . The staff are friendly and go out of there way to make guest feel comfortable .

The staff at the Ramada Mission Valley SDSU tries their best to make every guest feel like they are home away from home. The Grantville station is located one block from the hotel giving it an easy access to the Qualcomm Stadium to see the Chargers play and also going to Downtown to the Petco Park for the Padres. If you do not have a car this is a great location to get around San Diego.

Wow – we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. This was our first visit to the Qualcomm Stadium area (football Sunday - January 3rd) and it was so convenient! Yards away from the trolley station, and a small walk up the hill. We drove from Los Angeles, arriving in the area at approximately 11:30AM. The hotel was just off the freeway. Clean, parking lot, ample spaces. Nice lobby with a small concession fridge that sold juices, snacks, etc. The clerk secured our room for an early check-in and told us to enjoy the game – that was it! Totally hassle free and two minutes later we walked five minutes up the hill to the trolley station and purchased an all day pass for $5.00. Parking in the trolley lot looked like it was an absolute nightmare, but we didn’t have to worry about it! We had already parked at the hotel in front of our room. Literally 15 minutes later we were exiting the station and walked right IN to Qualcomm stadium. We’ve never had an easier trip!

Back at the hotel… our bed was so comfortable and the room was immaculate. No weird stains, odors or issues whatsoever. Even the spacious bathroom & shower had an adjustable head for me to wash off the shame of the Redskins’ loss to the Chargers. (Boo!) Nice complementary amenities, phone in the bathroom and crisp, bright vanity lighting. There was a fridge, microwave, coffeemaker – all pristine. Closet space was ample, and we even had a sitting area with table and two chairs. We seriously contemplated staying an additional night because the room was so awesome. Before booking, I initially saw other comments regarding the surroundings of the hotel. True – the neighborhood seemed like an industrial setting, but I mean, we weren’t sleeping outside. It is safe and QUIET- there are gas stations, stores and restaurants including a Chili’s within view of the hotel lot, and after partying so much at the game (complete with $9.00 beers!!! Yikes!!!), we just wanted a place to crash and burn afterwards. There was also a HUGE dining room and continental breakfast that I actually didn’t notice until checking out – so sorry I missed it!

This hotel tops my recommendation of BEST hotels to stay for a visit to the Qualcomm Stadium or any locals adjacent to the trolley – (Old Town, Downtown, etc.) A+ to the pleasant staff at both check-in and check-out. The price & value of this Ramada can’t be beat. It will be our annual retreat for the Redskins/Chargers game every season.

GO CHARGERS!! Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review. It's always good to hear our fans having a great time at the Qualcomm Stadium. The San Diego trolley is the best way to get in and out of the game fast without paying $20.00 for parking. The trolley also goes to the Mission Valley mall at the Junior Seau’s restaurant, where you can catch the game or go for a drink before the game starts. If you get back to the hotel late and don’t feel like driving anywhere for food, the hotel lobby has plenty of munchies as well as some great mid-night snacks like frozen pizzas and burritos you can take back to the room.

my wife and I stayed in San Diego for our Honeymoon. Our hotel room face the back parking lot. Apparently no noise by-laws restrict when a live band can play until. A near by bar had live entertainment and the band played until 2am. The front desk offered us earplugs. The room was small, it smelled, they tried charging us twice for the room, the internet was not working... you get the picture. It was our Honeymoon, so we made the best of it, but next time we will stay elsewhere

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The hotel is close to the bar, but they only have music on special events. I know this can be an inconvenience at times. We have not had any issues with our Internet since we got the new provider 9 months ago.
