Hello All,

First time to Comic Con and trying to plan our trip. 

Can anyone shed their experience in staying at the Mission Valley Hampton Inn?  Also, best local restaurants or best restaurants in Mission Valley?

Thanks in advance.

TripAdvisor probably has hotel reviews.

Broken Yolk is pretty popular. They serve breakfast and lunch. There is one in the Westfield Mission Valley mall, near the In n Out. Lazy Dog Cafe is popular too. There is a newer seafood buffet near there, 100. If you’re looking for options or other chains, there is the Fashion Valley mall and Hazard Center nearby too with more food options. There are a few new trendy places in FV but they tend to be pricier.

We've stayed in Mission Valley quite a bit during Comic-Con, but most of the restaurants we've eaten at during our Comic-Con trips are outside of Mission Valley. Our usual goal during Comic-Con is to eat at places we can't eat at home, plus we love trying out new non-chain restaurant places. But, there are some Mission Valley places we enjoyed:

  • Broken Yolk - for breakfast/brunch
  • Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill - ate their last year and enjoyed it, family friendly & easy parking; will probably go again this year
  • In-N-Out Burger - we have one at home, but perfect when you are wanting easy, cheap, and you're tired & hungry
  • King's Fish House

There are places we like that have a Mission Valley location, but we haven't actually eaten at the Mission Valley location.
  • Lazy Dog
  • Yardhouse
  • North Italia
  • BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse
  • Gordon Biersch
  • The Habit Burger Grill

lol honestly? This.  I've Lyfted all the way out to Mission Valley from downtown to get my fix.  Very convenient.

Also depending on where you are in Mission Valley (I think Hampton Inn looks close) you can walk to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, which has a ton of options.[/list]

I am local and these are all very good recommendations. I'd also add The Kebab Shop to the list in Mission Valley for great food. A lot of locals also swear by The Waffle Spot for breakfast, which is located in King's Inn, which is very close to the Hampton Inn. I, personally, do not recommend The Broken Yolk. It's a Southern California chain and just not that great, IMO. If given the choice, I'd rather eat at Denny's or IHOP than Broken Yolk. I only ever eat there once a year and it's during SDCC because we have our forum breakfast meetup there.

San Diego's best food is its Mexican food. Go to a good taco shop (at least 4 stars on yelp and not more than two $), not a chain. You probably won't find better Mexican food outside of California.

We've gone to Broken Yolk on several of our SDCC visits but we just got on in Las Vegas, where we live, so not likely we'll go to the San Diego one anymore - except for the forum breakfast. The Mission Valley one is always so packed anyway and since we always need seating for a larger group, we always have to wait a while. And both Denny's (on Camino Del Rio) and IHOP (in Fenton Marketplace) have been lifesavers for us on more than one San Diego trip...tired, hungry, and wanting a no-frills place. Ha, but just don't go to IHOP on their anniversary which has hit during Comic-Con week...it's crazy packed depending on the special pancake deal they offer.  :D

Fun isn’t something one considers when preparing for Comic-Con, but attending does put a smile on my face
