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

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

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

I had an upgraded room with a patio but there were ciggarette buts on the grass ( supposed to be non smoking) the room was dark all the colors were brown or green. Tv reception was poor, only WI was in the lobby or... More

Worst part: confusing layout of parking lot and buildings -- no outside numbers, few entrances, etc. Parking is complicated. Otherwise this place is great: best banquet food ever, great service, clean comfy rooms, great shuttle service and central location.
