We stayed for 1 week & the 2 x Double Beds we had were like King Single Beds at best. Very narrow. The beds are comfy; but very small. Request an up grade to a larger Queen or King size Bed or you will feel like 2 Adults sleeping in your Childs Single Bed. The overall Hotel stay was pleasant.... More

Room was average, needs abit of touch ups here and there. Bed was comfy and room was clean. When we first walked in our room it's had a bad smell but once we aired out the room the smell went away. Bathroom was a little bit run down and the fitness centre was not a fitness centre at all. It... More

This hotel is a throwback to the 70s, which was probably the last time it had some real money put into it. No elevator to the second floor where I was staying, which was fine for me, but others could have a challenge. Front desk staff was courteous and friendly. Pool area is very pleasant. Breakfast service at Postcards was... More

I picked this hotel mainly because it offered free Wi-Fi and a free shuttle to SeaWorld which were great. The hotel room was clean and spacious. The restaurant on site was good but there wasn't anything else close by apart from other hotels and downtown is a 10/15 minute taxi ride away. There is a shopping mall around the corner... More

On the plus side, the hotel room is clean, fairly large size, the walls and carpet are fresh. The staff seems nice, especially housekeeping and room service. The bathtub is just adequate but not large or deep. The balconies are enclosed with stucco, so not very user-friendly to sit in or attractive. They overlook the pool, with the accompanying sound...

My Bride and I enjoyed a wonderful four day stay in connection with a USS Hull (DD-945) and (DD-350) reunion. Excellent food service in the Lobby area. The banquet and breakfast facility known as the Garden Room was excellent for our group. The Hotel Staff was customer friendly. The only down side, which I reported to the Staff was a... More

Stayed here recently for a reunion. I was disappointed in room location and front desk when checked in. When asked if I can get a closer location, I was denied because of the :"type" of reservation I had. I had a king size bed accomodation and said I would be willing to upgrade to two beds.. I was still denied... More

This is our second stay at the Handlery. Enjoyed our stay (again). Good clean room, not fancy but roomy enough. Nice people, good restaurant - ate several breakfasts and a lunch. Priced fairly. Really nice pool area with good snack bar. Will go back

We stayed here and found this hotel to be quite comfortable. The room was good size as well as nicely located overlooking the large heated pool and nice jacuzzi. The parking was ample and not overpriced. Free internet, good food, & refrigerator. It was centrally located to all shopping and restaurants in Fashion Valley, Mission Valley and a hop, skip... More
