Chose the Handlery Hotel in San Diego, as we had stayed 3 times in the Handlery San Francisco and enjoyed the experience and quiet, friendly (classy) atmosphere. Thought the San Diego hotel would be to the same standard. Rooms were clean and spacious, food good in restaurant but at the weekend the noise from the bar area was bad (would... More

We stayed here for a few nights. Rooms big & clean. Self laundry service handy. Pool is lovely too. The hotel is in the hotel circle just off the freeway which is handy to find coming into San Diego but it's a 10-15 min drive into gas lamp district.

I was very pleased with the room, staff & security at the Handlery. I was part of a family reunion gathering with relatives from multiple states arriving. On arrival I was able to get my room with no delay. There was a couple before me, but the manager came out after I was there for a couple of minutes and... More

Unfortunately, the Handlery Hotel in San Diego needs some work. Located in Mission Valley, one would think it would be nicer and a bit more up-to-date. The rooms are old, the sink in the bathroom has a horrible smell coming up from it which fills the room, the fitness center has NO air conditioning and just a few machines, some... More

My hubby, 2 kids and I just stayed here for our nephew's wedding. We got a room with a balcony. It was so nice to have the extra room of a balcony. The hotel was nice and close to everything. The ballroom was beautiful for the wedding reception. My kids loved swimming in the pool. I would definitely stay here... More

My wife and I just loved this hotel. The staff were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The shuttle was good and the driver could not have been better giving us tips and ideas of where to go. We just loved San Diego and when we return we will stay here again.

The pool was really nice. The room was kind of cramped though. The bathroom was really small. The location was perfect. Overall the hotel wasn't impressive, but it was clean and was a decent rate. I would probably give it another try.
