This is the 2nd time we have stayed with the Handlery, once in San Francisco and now in Dan Diego. I have to say they have the very best locations, so central to things in both cities. The service here is ok, the team are accommodating but the front office are a bit 'by the book' ( I couldn't check in as it was booked under my wife's name) however we did enter Mexico without passports and Amanda from guest services was amazing and saved the day by organising a Cab to get our documents to us at the homeland security centre!! Dumb I know but be careful not to take RIGHT lanes if you don't intend crossing the border!... The pool at the hotel is great, clean and deep and the area is well set out. Things are a bit dated so this means minimal sound-proofing between rooms, noisy aircon, dated bathroom and a wobbly refrigerator. We loved the location which allows you to get to town, Zoo, Mexico (:-)), la Jolla and almost anywhere via freeways in 15 minutes. I am happy with the value also and would come back.
