OK hotel. The main reason I stayed here was the "free" shuttle to Sea World. While it is free, the shuttle schedule was not convenient so, we ended up driving to SeaWorld. Other than that, the hotel is clean but, it's not a pretty hotel and it really needs an upgrade.

This was a pleasure trip for myself and my girlfriend and we were first time visitors to San Diego. We purchased San Diego Go Cards so that we could see several local attractions on our four day visit and decided not to rent a car so we wanted a hotel that offered convenience via shuttle service and proximity to public...

We recently spent five nights at the Handlery Hotel. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel The staff is friendly and helpful, and you really feel that they value you as a guest. From the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out, the staff was attentive and welcoming. On several occasions when we ate in... More

My family and I just stayed here 2 weeks ago for a weekend trip to Sea World. The plus is this hotel is conveniently located right off the freeway and two exits away from Sea World. Upon arrival we checked in and the staff was pleasant at the front desk. I was greeted by the bell hop named Jeff. Very... More

Usually when I go to San Diego I stay with friends, but this time I was bringing a friend so needed to find a hotel. I lived in San Diego for 10 years so am very familiar with the areas and where I wanted to be located, which was sort of in the middle of where all my friends live.... More

Let me preface this by saying although I live and work out of the country, my family has been in San Diego for generations. This is an very large, older property, in Hotel Circle (one of the original ones) that backs up to the San Diego River and the gold course. While I do not think there is direct access... More

Stayed two nights on either end of a whaling tour in Mexico. Welcoming Friendly staff! Clean, comfortable bedding. Good price. Restaurant good. Would stay again if in the area and in need. Nice shuttle service.

I have stayed here three time now and still think it is a good value. Last time I visited I was put near the front and it was quite noisy, so requested never to be in that area again. When I arrived this time the notes were in the screen and we were put in the back which was quite... More

My Wife and I were lucky enough to have stayed at the Handlery San Diego when we visited in October 2013. We were both very impressed with how helpful all the staff were at the hotel, while offering helpful advice about the Metro, and indeed all the sights of San Diego. While on the downside there was a room surcharge... More
