We stayed here over the weeekend as other parks were full. The park is clean, pool area is really cool, TV room was nice and clean and recently updated. Bathrooms are dated but clean. Two issues that i had that you may or may not. 1. The neighbor is a long timer, with a lot of junk outside of their unit. Their dog barked all day long when they were out of their unit. I talked with the management, and they said they would handle it. Nothing happened... 2. We had an ANT INVASION at our spot. There were thousands of ants on the ground of our site. By the morning of day 2, we had hundreds of ants INside of the motorhome. The neighbor on the other side gave me ant spray to put in and out of the motorhome (an indication of the massive infestation they have here.) The management didn't seem to care about the issue. Bring ant spray with you and spray around all of your tires, jacks, hoses, etc when you pull in. We beat it out of here quickly. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

For the nightly rate, even just a picnic set or table would be a welcome addition. Kind of shocking that there was NOTHING on the concrete patio. The site was quite small and not level. Interior roads and gates are VERY tight. Nicely landscaped with mature palms and other trees and shrubs. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Some good sites, some not so good. Lots of permanent or semi permanent guests. Excellent access to the electric trolley system which we used extensively. Noisy neighbors apparently doing car maintenance 3 days in a row. Would probably not stay here again. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is not what I would call a resort by any stretch of the imagination. There are two sides to this park. The gated side which is very clean and nice and the ungated side which is not, but that is where the pool and amenities are. If you stay on the good side you have to walk out the gate and down the frontage road 100 yards to get to the office and pool. You are right on Highway 8 so traffic noise is high. The non gated side (where our first site was supposed to be) is run down and has a lot of perm residents with some units in ill repair. The gated side is mostly transient big rigs and longer term folks who take very good care of their sites. It is also secure which is important because this is not the greatest of neighborhoods. Roads are tight coming in through an older neighborhood. Alavarado is a very narrow frontage road and the entrances are narrow and unmarked as well. This is a very expensive park for what you get. Sites are small and tight for the most part but there are a few that have grassy areas. Good utilities. No cable on the gated side. The SD Trolley (rail) is nearly in the complex so if you want to visit parts of San Diego via trolley you can go almost anywhere and even to Tijuana for a few dollars.San Diego has generally poor and overpriced RV options. We lived here for 10 years so you pretty much take what you can get. This is not a bad stay at all if you are on the gated side and don't care about the pool. Otherwise I would pass. At $90 per night it matches the most expensive rate we have had on this 6,000 mile trip. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This is a very tight park. We had a premium back in site, which is the only one that would accommodate a 45' motorhome. We still had to park our toad on the street as our coach filled up the site. This is a marginal park for big rigs. It is tough turning into the park and getting through the gate without rubbing the side with bushes unless you swing way wide into the oncoming traffic lane. The park is split into the zones separated by a water feature. So if you are in the eastern part of the park, and you want to use the pool and amenities, you must go out the gate, walk down the busy road and into the main park. The one thing this park has is convenience. Close to the 8 freeway and close to the light rail. They give you 4 consecutive hours of Tengo internet free, then you pay. An okay park with a lot of caveats. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Older park split into two separate areas. THE GOOD: The grounds are kept well. Facilities and pool clean. Sites are shaded and fairly level gravel. Premium pull-through sites have patio and grass. Paved roads. Staff helpful and courteous. Fifteen minutes from Sea World, the harbor, the beaches and La Jolla. Water and power are good and pedestal close. Very good cable TV. Freeway access is good at the West end (Lake Murray Blvd), but very bad at the East end (Alvarado Rd exit-avoid this exit if you're a big rig) THE BAD: Freeway noise is hideous. RV's are packed in at every angle. Tight squeeze for big rigs if you're not in a pull-through. Lots of permanent residents with old rigs and junk piled up around them. No designated pet area, altho they do provide clean up bags. We were told by other folks not to leave anything unlocked when away from rig. Prices for premium sites way to high for this old park. You have to pay extra for Tengo internet access, which should have been included at premium price. If we come to San Diego again, we'll look around for another park. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for 5 months. Loved the location, close to everything and trolley was very convenient. Grounds are kept up extremely well, nice pool area, adequate exercise room. No "large screen" TV in conference room though (it's been stolen twice!). Also, my bike was stolen within first couple of days we were there. Supposedly soliciting not allowed, but we were approached twice, after office hours - felt a bit creepy about that. Very close to I-8, but we thought of the noise as a waterfall, so it really didn't bother us. Not much of a dog area; they do provide doggie bags, which was handy and appreciated, though often all boxes were empty (we think other campers cleaned them out). If U.S. Mail delivery is too large for mailbox, they "leave a slip in your mailbox" - we had numerous such deliveries, but only twice was a slip left in our mailbox; had to go into office and ask. Once I was even told that we didn't have a package, only to have my husband go back in and yes, we did! Management was nice enough, but seemed a bit haphazard; their favorite comment was "sorry about that" - which felt less than sincere. Very nice that they occasionally have dinners, although found each one we attended to be very unorganized and awkward. All in all a nice park and we would go back, but don't expect too much from the office staff (and the guy at the front desk could use some customer service training). We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park, facilities were spotless and the people running it were great. But way too close to freeway for us. Lots of freeway noise. Stayed one night. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The only advantage of this park is its proximity to a MTS-trolley stop. Just park your car in front of your RV and with a day pass ($ 5) you can use the whole metropolitan trolley system. It is even possible to go to the border (Tijuana). The biggest disadvantage is its proximity to Interstate 8. It is one of the noisiest parks we ever visited. The rate is the PA rate, but you have to pay $ 4.95 per day extra for Wi-Fi. We spent 3 night here. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I like everything about this park except, we were next to some very rude full timer residents. They pretended not to be there when we needed their car to be moved to make it easier to back in, and again when we could not leave. They suddenly were there when the tow truck pulled up. Management was responsive. Yes we would stay there again because of convenience, but management needs to deal with the rude occupants. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

When reservations were made, we requested 2 sites to handle two 40’ fifth wheels from July 3 through July 12. We were told no problem and that we could be right next to each other; reservations were made in Feb. 2009. When the end of June 2009 rolled around, we both got calls to confirm the reservations, and then we were told we could not be together because of the size of the fifth wheels and that they were fully booked. After much discussion we just agreed because it was too late to make other plans. We show up at the park on July 3 and the sites were a little close, just about 10 sites away. Both of the sites were way to small for the fifth wheels. Either one did not have grass, any room after the slides were put out, no tables, nothing. The park does have a lot of full timers or people that never leave the park. They were not too friendly and parked cars on the sides of the streets, which made it interesting to get in and out. The park does not have a drive through park to turn around in. We had to drive partially through then turn the fifth wheel around in the park because our site was in the opposite direction as the street, pointed towards the entrance. When leaving we had to pull out of the site, back up while almost jack knifing the trailer to get it back on the main street through the park and exit out the entrance. The reason for this was that all the gates are locked to exit and the streets are blocked by the full timers. Rates were good, park was pretty clean, overall was all right, but too small for big rigs in my opinion. They had 2 pull through sites with grass, but we were not allowed in them even though we were told we were getting and paid for luxury sites. The people in the pull through sites both changed twice while we were there. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here several times. When we returned this time they put us in a spot next to the freeway. Extremely noisy site. Park is very expensive as they have raised their rates almost $100.00 a month.They gave us a site that you have to back in through a gate on a very busy street.They offered no help in guiding you in your spot. Thank god there was a full time resident to help or i would have asked for a refund. We will not return. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

My wife and I were not impressed with this park. The website makes it look like more than it truly is. Getting in and out was tight with our 29' travel trailer and there is not much room to maneuver around the park. When we first arrived the manager wanted to put us into a site that was obviously too small for our trailer. After physically showing it to him he agreed and moved us to another spot. This site was also cramped and not much to look at. I would have given a lower rating than I did but the park is within easy driving distance of Sea World and Legoland, which is why we were there so the convenience of that was worth something. We will not stay there again. We camped at San Diego RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
