My husband and I stayed at this hotel for the week of February 15 - 22, 2014. We thought it was excellent! The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The restaurant Postcards was also excellent. Great food, great service, and lots of food!!! The pool and hot tub were a wonderful way to unwind at the end of a busy day. The drivers hired by the hotel were also wonderful. Ciengan, Jeff, and Ray were excellent with information about the tourist spots. We would stay here again when we visit this beautiful city. If I had one tiny complaint, it would be that there is no elevator to carry my heavy suitcase, or maybe I should just pack less!!!!!!

Room Tip: We loved poolside and the King bed!!

We were very impressed by the level of service offered at this moderately priced hotel. Everyone from the concierge to the shuttle driver were just great. I can't think of a thing to improve. Our rooms were clean, the pool was large and clean, parking was plentiful, the shuttle driver was accommodating. We would definitely stay again or recommend to a friend.

Room Tip: We stayed in two different buildings and had no problems in either. If you have been on a whale tou...

I can't say enough about the staff at the hotel. We recently stayed there for a few days around our trip to San Igancio Lagoon on Baja and the tour company recommended this hotel. So glad we chose it. The location to Old Town was fantastic - 10 minutes by shuttle/cab. The staff was more than pleasant and willing to help in any way they could. Some of our luggage was lost and they were on top of getting it to us and contacting us with information. Our shuttle driver Jeff was awesome and made great recommendations for dinner in the Old Town area. He aslo gave us a contact for an affordable and reliable taxi for our return trip later that evening. Rooms were nice with roomy bathrooms and very comfortable beds, but a little updating of some things wouldn't hurt. The only drawback was since this is their "winter", the Reff Lounge next to the pool closed early. So some cozy cocktails in the late afternoon wasn't always possible. I'm returning to San Ignacio Lagoon in March of 2016 and will definitley stay here again.

Room Tip: No elevators in the building so if you can't do stairs, make sure you ask for a first floor room...

Spur of the moment overnight San Diego trip brought me to this hotel. Only ended up here due to it being a holiday weekend and all other hotels in town were either sold out or way overly priced. Tried to book online but wasn't allowing me to the fact it was requiring a two night minimum. Called the hotel directly to see if they would allow on a single night stay and they gracefully accommodated. Upon arrival I was pleasantly impressed by the quant property and beauty of the lobby and adjoining restaurants. Front desk young lady named Theresa immediately made me feel welcomed and quickly check me in and gave me a run down of the property and all its amenities. Did it all with a smile and passion that was refreshing! (Someone take note and give her a raise!) Room was normal size, very clean and more than sufficient. Also very easy to get to rooms from the parking lot. There is an overnight parking fee which is kinda blah, but tolerable. Will consider this property next time I am in the area.

the handlery is a pretty, quiet and clean hotel. conveniently located on hotel circle drive, it was central to our first trip to san diego - 10 to 15 minutes in any direction got us somewhere worthwhile. the rooms are on the smaller end - would have been nice to have a sofa / sitting area. the beds and pillows were comfortable, the towels luscious, and the room spotlessly clean. gorgeous heated pool made for perfect lounging. the staff was cordial and responsive. loved the complimentary use of the business center to print boarding passes.

We visited the San Diego zoo and needed a place to stay overnight. This hotel was a wonderful find. Comfortable clean room. I would recommend it to anyone staying in the area. There is also a nice restaurant attached. I stayed in their hotel in San Francisco and it was equally nice.
