We have stayed here several times. Always made to feel welcome. The staff, in all categories, are extremely helpful. The pool is well utilized by adults and children. There is jazz on Friday evenings. We had dinner Friday evening, having the music in the background, so that we could have conversations with family and friends. The service was unobtrusive and...

There's nothing too nice about this hotel but it's a good price and in a good location right on hotel row close to the zoo, Sea World, and 10 min drive to Sunset Cliffs area and Mission Beach area so all in all this place is a good option if you're looking for an average hotel. The pool area is... More

I enjoyed our stay here, fortunately our family reunion organizer visited the location and worked out arrangements for our breakfast and main dinner gatherings, in addition to parking and planned social events. The staff was very amenable and attentive to requests. The rooms are small, but comfortable. It is summertime, so rates reflect the season, but were reasonable. If requested,... More

Nice place to stay easy to get to and get around. We used it for base camp to go see the Giants vs the Padres. THE TROLLEY IS CLOSE BY ALONG WITH NUMEROUS STORES AND RESTURANTS. THE GROUNDS AND facilities were great. We will go again.

We stayed at the Handlery in San Diego and had a really great time. Staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and the restaurants were fine. The hotel is also centrally located close to the major attractions. We will definitely stay here again next time we go to San Diego. Thank you for a great experience!!!

Sad to say not one of the cheapest hotels and certainly not one of the best . No staff to collect Bags as bell boy " doesn't start work till 11 am " ?. Staff scruffy and left to fend for themselves with no management . Parking $14 a day , why the car park is empty . More like... More

Stayed at the Handlery for a family reunion for 4 nights. The staff was exceptional! Jeff shuttled us to several locations and was extremely friendly and helpful. All the staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The pool was great! I highly recommend the rooms with a balcony over looking the pool.
