I stayed 4 nights on business. The hotel is OK, although a bit dated, but the "free" internet was essentially useless. I stopped at the front desk, and they even sent an engineer to my room who reset the local router. Even with all this, I was only able to get any data via my pc at 6 am, and... More

We stayed at this hotel for a 5 day basketball tournament. For a budget hotel it is decent, but it is priced as a moderate hotel and is really lacking in service and amenities. The location is the best feature, the hotel is near everything you want to see and do in San Diego. There is a poolside restaurant, but... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and were very impressed by the friendliness of Adam (check-in), the in-house taxi drivers and Jeff the shuttle bus driver. The rooms were clean and comfortable with decent air-con and facilities. Unfortunately the buffet is poor and lacking variety and they don't appear to have come across anyone with gluten intolerance as... More

I had a fantastic Mini Vacation at this hotel. I booked the Fairway suite which opened up right in front of the pool, oh boy was it an awesome room. The room was super clean/tidy and had so much space. The pool environment was awesome. There was plenty of room to relax and bath in the sun comfortably. Don't even... More

This was my first stay at Handlery and the staffs were welcoming, accommodating, courteous, good sense of humor and made an exhausting trip disappear. Because I was so tired the bed was a dream both clean and fresh and very comfortable.I hated to leave. I would definitely stay here again! The hotel transportation driver made it even better, he was... More

Fourth time that my family have stayed at the Handlery. Service good throughout even the restaurant. Somewhat disappointed that the Aztec burger that was on the menu in 2014 was not there this year. Replacement was just as good. Front desk staff very welcoming especially Sam. Pook & Mc Kend family

This could partly be our travel company's fault as the Handlery just isn't what we hoped for from holiday accomodation in San Diego. This is how I envision a Motel on a Freeway, not a 3-4 star Hotel. We arrived just before 9pm after a difficult 3 hour journey from LA and instead of a cheery welcome for our pre-booked... More

As a family, we have really enjoyed our stay here. Check in was a breeze and the gentleman at the front desk was excellent. The pool and hot tub are great, as is the free breakfast we were given (it was not part of our package). While our room was a bit small for us, this is no fault of... More
