Want to have a super, perfect moment? Go to the Handlery Hotel on Friday nights to hear wonderful jazz and eat delightful goodies. I wish we lived closeby, but my cousins do, so they took us to this great event.

We were charged a $50 daily fee for possible expenses and a $12 parking fee, both of which was not explained to us at the time of booking. Our room was cramped, the bathroom was so small we could not put out our... More

We enjoyed the pool and the room and bed were very comfortable. Was a little annoyed by the $14 a night parking fees and there was no service at the pool. We had to get drinks from the lobby and they were very expensive and we were not allowed to bring our own down to the pool. The mall was... More

Clean and comfortable, pool is good for kids and family. Front desk staff very helpful,... The hotel lacks a small shop to be able to purchase items from like milk and basic snacks. Location is very central to what San Dieago has to offer
