Sheraton Mission Valley San Diego Hotel
Travel Blogs from San Diego
We left Washington, suitably impressed and inspired by this great Capital. We also gleaned some good information during our whistle-stop tour - Georgetown was named after two Scottish Traders, who were both called George; the political phrase 'lobbying' originated in the grand lobby of the Willard Hotel (which we visited and is stunning) next to …
After checkout we drove out of the mountains, picked up the RV (all ok!) and followed I-15 towards CA. There are several fires in the San Diego area and we could see heavy smoke around the hills. Fortunately our campground is well away from those areas. ...
... we came to La Jolla. A very ritzy area which held Dallas' favorite surf spot along the coast. He took me to his hidden "gem" and we checked it out. It was absolutely amazing. The waves formed perfectly as they came rolling in along the point. It was at this point I wish I had a surf suit and surf board !
After this we stopped at La Jolla bay, where we saw the sea lions, and the scuba ...
... few miles, all the way up until we got to what looked like Captain Jack Sparrows ship. Poor little Phoebe's feet started to hurt so we headed back toward the car but stopped off at a lovely seafood restaurant called The Fish Market. I had the fish and chip combo which was two small pieces of white fish (cod I think), 2 big prawns and 3 scallops, fries and coleslaw. Oh my god it was gorgeous, but i felt physically sick afterwards. I ...
We arrived in the next bar were we wanted to meet up the other ones. Well nobody was there except of Chris. He was just ordering the famous "Pickleback" with the homemade pickle-juice. Well i gave it a try, too. Yak!!! Never again!! Dont know what was more worse, the shot whiskey or the shot pickle-juice afterwards. Hmm, at least i didnt had this burning in my mouth from the whisky, but i had a discusting taste of pickle-juice. When i think about it now, i ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Mission Valley San Diego Hotel
Stayed May 4, 2005, and purchased through a third-party site. THIS FRESH, ATTRACTIVE, AND CLEAN HOTEL WAS AN EXCEPTIONAL VALUE. GOOD LOCATION, close to Westfield Mall, etc., and easy access by freeway to all that San Diego has to offer (also easy to spot and easy to find)--this was our stopping point before entering Mexico. Very nicely renovated, there were already some signs of abuse (bell cart marks on the walls, marks on the guest room carpet), and three MINOR items simply didn't work properly--coffee maker made only 1/2 pot, timer on bathroom heatlamp needed attention/replacement, brand new toilet needed help with its' continually running mechanism two times during our 12.5 hour visit. All staff members we came into contact with (even in passing) were friendly, and the FRONT DESK ACTUALLY MADE US FEEL WELCOME WHEN WE ARRIVED.
My experience at the Sheraton Mission Valley was mixed. They didn't have the type of bed I requested (a king) when I checked in but were able to give me a disabled-access king room instead. Unfortunately, the room was right next to the elevator, which rumbled pretty loudly. The furnishings were nice enough. The restaurant was OK, but nothing particularly fantastic. Service was lackluster. Overall, I found the Marriott and the Doubletree (not the Doubletree Club, but the one in the center of Mission Valley) to be nicer hotels.
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. We got a very good rate through AAA. The location is right near the freeway. However, noise was never an issue. It was a nice hotel. We never were in the room for long periods of time. It was clean and we had a nice two nights. We were looking at colleges and this particular location was ideal. It is close to everything. I would definitely stay here again.
Hotel was flawless. Would recommend to anyone who wants a luxurious hotel for a fair price.
We stayed 4 nights and overall found the hotel comfortable, clean and the staff accomodating. We arrived about 1/2 hour prior to 3pm check in and took the chance to see if our room was ready. It wasn't. So we figured we'd wait in the lobby/walk around until the room was ready. Instead, front desk suggested we pre-register, go to the mall across the freeway and they'd call when our room was ready. The front desk staff seemed a little surprised that we asked to have our luggage held until our room was ready. Front desk called after 4pm. I was surprised and a little disappointed that for checking in on a Tuesday they weren't ready on time. But more surprised that they didn't apologize for the delay or have an explanation. They did forget our request to be on the non-freeway side, but quickly re-assigned us when I confirmed our room location. The view from the back side of the property is a lush hillside filled with trees, bushes, and flowers. It was pleasant to look at. The "heavenly beds" they advertise have great pillows and a comfy duvet, though I wouldn't describe the mattress as heavenly in comfort...just average. The room was nicely furnished and clean. I did like the solid bench to put the suitcases on rather than those rickety strappy stands many hotels have. Housekeeping did a great job. My daughter enjoyed finding her stuffed animals creatively arranged on the bed everyday. I agree with the reviewer about the carpets. A shampooing wouldn't hurt. There were plenty of hangers, an ironing board and iron in the closet. I thought all Sheraton's had robes, but this one did not. I also was surprised there was no in-room safe as the reservationist had confirmed. The water pressure was great, but a taller shower head would have been nice. Why do hotels think guests are 5 feet tall? We had one maintenance issue that was promptly addressed and resolved. The tub took 20 mins to drain. When making the reservation, I asked if the hotel was kid-friendly or more "business" based and told it was kid-friendly. Based on our time there, we saw only one other family with a child. While we weren't shunned, the suit crowd was more the norm. We liked the restaraunt. The food was good and the service prompt. It was disappointing that there was no kid's menu. The server was very understanding and accomodating in getting us a kid friendly cheese crisp and some fruit for our pre-schooler. He indicated they are working on developing a kid menu. We enjoyed the pool and spa. There were plenty of towels and lounge chairs. There is a little shop on property for sundries. The woman staffing it was very friendly. There were many family friendly restaurants nearby and the location of the hotel made it very easy to get to/from the airport, Sea World, Legoland, and the Zoo. We also appreciated having the Target store across the freeway to stock up on bottled water and snacks to take to the attractions. Overall, the hotel was nice and all but one or two people were extremely good to us. We were told that they have only been a Sheraton for 2 months, so maybe they are still working on the Sheraton level of service in a few areas?
I recently stayed one night at the San Diego Mission Valley Sheraton Hotel. Check in was very easy, the initial room that we were assigned to had some problems but we were quickly relocated. However, I had to get my room key recoded twice during my stay which was a bit troublesome. One other thing that I noticed is that for being recently remodeled the carpets were dirty and the pool and spa area looked like it needed to be refurbished. There were no towels in the pool area either. I was very impressed with an employee who was working in the pool area by the name of Andreas. He brought towels to restock and also pulled a pool chair overly directly to us and placed a few towels on it. This kind of service really changed my first impression of the hotel. The breakfast was great, and our waiter Juan was very helpful. Overall, the stay was pleasant, the staff & housekeeping are very friendly and accommodating.
My husband and I recently returned from a five night vacation stay at this hotel, which used to be the Radisson San Diego Mission Valley, but Sheraton took over as of January 11th. The hotel is very centrally located and it is easy to hop on I-8. The hotel is beautifully appointed and is
We have been traveling out of the country for the last 5 years on business and pleasure, the best hotel I have ever stayed at is the Wyndam Rose Hall in Montego Bay,Jamaica until that is the my stay at the Sheraton in San Diego (Mission Valley)
Lovely room, had a pleaant time
We stayed for one night at the Raddison Mission Valley May 29, 2004. The newly refurbished room was perfect. Beautiful, large room with nice decor, nice bath, very clean wit very comfortable beds. Staff was friendy and helpful. They are still in the remodeling stages, so be sure to ask for a newer room. The pool was very nice also. Lobby and ground floor was kind of torn up for remodeling. Lots of free parking. Close to everything. A little freeway noise, but we were exhausted and had no trouble sleeping. I would definately stay there again.
