I go back and forth to San Diego frequently and usually stay at the same hotel and frankly just wanted a change of scenery. The Handlery is in Mission Valley along with a ton of other hotels. First off, the price was a little better than comparable hotels such as the Courtyard by about $50/night. Internet was decent throughout the... More

Very friendly and helpful staff all over the hotel. The rooms - you get what you pay for. The hallways were musty, long and poorly lit. More like an upscale motel. Rooms were tidy but a bit smaller than average. Parking was included which is a big bonus. The onsite restaurant was a bit overrated. It was more than half... More

We stayed at the Handlery for 4 days because of a friends wedding that was being held there. The rooms are clean and comfortable, there is a beautiful outdoor pool and nice restaurant on site that we had breakfast in each morning. The staff were very accomodating and pleasant. The shuttle driver Jeff was wonderful and took us to all... More

We recently stayed for a couple of days at the Handlery in San Diego, in town for a big family birthday celebration. This is a very nice, low profile hotel, done up to resemble a resort. I have stayed at an actual San Diego resort, and the Handlery provides the same setting at a third of the price. Additionally, if... More

With all of the places to stay in beautiful San Diego this is not one of them. Rooms are dirty, and staff is not helpful. They claim to have a shuttle service but it does not travel to the airport or any places outside of a 2 mile radius. Food in the hotel restaurant is overpriced and is aweful. The... More

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
