5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

From the check in process to the check out process, the staff was over the top helpful from offering suggestions to sightseeing to late night pizza delivery for hung tourists. I loved the small touches from the normal bottle of shampoo and lotion to the extra of q-tips.... This place was a nice quiet retreat from hotel circle normal chains.... More

The best review I can give this hotel is OKAY. The rooms are okay- small, humid, but not terrible. Unfortunately, I have stayed at better hotels in the area. I will say that the staff was VERY friendly and that would be one of the highlights of our stay. The best part of the hotel is the entrance. Other than... More

Middle of the road hotel that shows its age. However, the bed & pillows were very comfortable. Bedding is on the softer side so if you need firm you may not like it. I also liked the location. It's on Hotel Circle in the middle of San Diego so there's easy access to everything. All the employees I encountered were... More

Recently stayed at Handlery SD. The staff was attentive and worked hard to provide good customer service, especially in the restaurant. Room and property were clean and had enough space, but....both beds in my room were extremely soft and uncomfortable. The walls in my room were thin, so I could hear conversation in the next room, and doors opening and... More

We had a great experience from the excellent room which was quiet, large with a comfortable king size bed and comfortable pillows, had a balcony and we found a great value compared to other hotels we have stayed at in San Diego. Close to Fashion Square, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Mission and Pacific Beach and all the surrounding areas.... More

The cost of the Handlery hotel was too high based on the accomodations. The beds were not as comfortable as expected. The decor was somewhat old and needs remodeling. The common areas were the best. The individual rooms need some improvement.

Although there are only a few drawers in which to place clothing, the rooms in this hotel are exceptionally clean. The bathroom area looked brand new (although the hair dryer only had one working speed). The staff is warm and friendly, and very helpful (even when it was just an issue of a refund on a soda machine that didn't... More

I stayed here to attend the National Homebrewers Conference, and the host hotel was full. My room was clean and comfortable. It was a bit small, but, given the size of the facility, I can understand. Housekeeping was thorough, and room service was excellent.

I was having a medical emergency while attending a conference at this hotel. Jeff, the hotels shuttle driver quickly went into action and got me to where I needed to go, both quickly and safely! Great experience at this hotel. Very efficient, responsive and caring staff.
