Just added to the SDCC Hotels page, there are some early bird hotels in the works. This is good news for those of you who want hotels NOW and do not mind a little bit of travel getting to and from the event. If you wish to stay in the surrounding Downtown/Gaslamp area then this is not for you.
Check below for a visual map of where Mission Valley is in relation to the city and the Convention Center as well as a public transportation guide.
Comic-Con Early Bird Hotel Sale
If you know you will be attending Comic-Con and want to save money AND get your room in advance of everyone else; here’s your chance!
A limited number of hotel rooms will be made available in the Mission Valley area and they will also offer special incentives for those who book early.
PLEASE NOTE: These rooms will not be eligible for the Hotel Room/Badge program we have had in past years should we decide to have that program again.
You must pay for the room in advance and there are no refunds or exchanges. This special Early Bird Hotel Sale is only available BEFORE general housing opens and remember, all rooms are prepaid and are not eligible for any refunds.
The courtesy shuttle will be available at these hotels beginning Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at 3:00pm and will operate until 10:00pm Wednesday night. The shuttle starts back up on Thursday, July 12, 2012 at 7:00am and will begin 24-hour service until Sunday, July 15, 2012 at 7:00pm helping fans enjoy every hour of Comic-Con and the night time fun.

While Mission Valley is a whiles away (the back dot on the map is the Convention Center) there are plenty of options for you to get back and forth. Just know that while this area is about six miles away there are literally thousands of people trying to get into the same area at the same time so the transit time might be a little more than ideal during the prime hours.
Firstly, the con itself offers a free 24-hour shuttle. You can party it up all night and still get back worry-free. When that information is available we will put it up as soon as we can.
Second, you can drive. This is the least practical option but it is there if you choose to use it.
Third, there is a trolley (map below) and you can look at a dedicated page for thier service during the 2012 Comic-Con, including schedules and fares, here.
