What a great place to visit they don't normally have trundle beds but they were more than willing to accommodate our needs love how peaceful the building was and how easy it was to find the room. located in beautiful Mission Valley with plenty of shopping around

I stayed here on a weekday before the holidays with my parents, so there weren't many people yet. I also had a Travelzoo deal which helped some cost savings and included parking. That said, I had a great visit. (There were more than 1 instance where I think room service mistakenly came into our room as if they didn't expect... More

Hotel nicely appointed and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Had issue with slow draining sink, mentioned to front desk personnel when I was leaving out for meeting and when I got back later in afternoon the issue was resolved.

While it is a bit dated, they've done a lot with the bar/lobby area and the friendliness of the staff make up for it. PS - just had the Brussels sprouts at the bar and they were outstanding - roasted sprouts with bacon, Parmesan and some balsamic drizzle - perfect.

Although the hotel was a bit dated, it was fine for us. It was very clean, the staff were friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was good and set us up for the day, like other hotels in that area a bit isolated. Thanks to Sarah for printing our boarding passes,most helpful for when we got to the airport.

We stayed at the Handlery Hotel in mid December 2015 for a short 3 night visit to San Diego. The hotel is dated with poor workmanship upgrades. Biggest gripe was paying $17 per day for parking when there is ample, never-used parking in the front. Plenty of other hotel options along the Hotel Circle.

This hotel is a good hotel with very friendly staff. In particular Jeff at the front desk was very helpful. He was also the shuttle driver. We had two interconnecting rooms that were small and dark but sufficient. There were better rooms that overlooked the pool area but unfortunately we didn't have one of those rooms. Breakfast was included and... More
