Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Handlery San Diego. As my travelling companion had limitations on climbing stairs and walking distances we had contacted the hotel prior to arrival to request a room close to the restaurant and pool area. We weren't disappointed, being placed in a room that easily accessed these areas. Good sized room, clean, had a... More

Had a great stay recently at the Handlery Hotel in San Diego. It was not incredibly fancy but had a cool, old school yet updated vibe. Perfect for our trip. The pool area was great- location was ideal to get anywhere we were going in SD. The free shuttle to Balboa was a great perk too. Definitely recommend this hotel!

They were very humble and welcoming. I thought I had reserved a double bed at first, called the front desk, and immediately switched me to a double bed right downstairs. The room was extremely clean. My night was very quiet. Very much rested night after a day at Sea World with our 4 year old. Definitely recommend!

Thinking Resort Hotel I was disappointed. It was not up to date with furniture. No elevators. Steps everywhere except for the main building. No dresser for your clothes. The room was clean which I was very grateful. The refrigerator in the room was great. The restaurant had great food, but could not afford to spend approx, $75.00 a night just... More

I attended a convention for a week at the end of August and had to stay at Handlery hotel. The hotel the convention was being held was booked (fortunately for me!) My stay at this hotel couldn't have been better. The room was clean, the staff was courteous-fast check in and the concierge' staff outstanding! I would like to mention... More

When we arrived for a special Raider convention in San Diego st this hotel the scent of mugginess was in the lobby. The staff seemed overwhelmed when three or more formed a line. This hotel is a row of separate buildings making it hard to enjoy it. In our room the nozzle for tub was stuck in shower mode so... More

We reserved a block of rooms for a family wedding at the naval base and most everyone stayed an extra day or two to hang out in beautiful San Diego. We have a huge family and spent a lot of time just hanging out at the hotel with each other. As is now the norm in hot vacation cities, it... More

We stayed one night at Handlery Hotel in Aug 2014. We were with a group of high school football players, coaches and families in town for our season opening game. As the Team Mom, I was the one handling all the hotel accommodations and logistics of our stay. The group and conference reservation staff, specifically Maria and Amber, were extremely... More
