I stayed at the Handlery Hotel for 4 nights. There is nothing luxurious about the accommodations, but they were clean and neat. The hotel restaurant was of moderate cost and never disappointed me with the amount or quality of the fare. I was most pleased with the full pot of coffee at breakfast. The staff was very accommodating. There is a van that goes to the local points of interest at no additional charge. I bought my own bottle of wine one night and the bartender lent me a corkscrew and offered to uncork the bottle at no charge. This is an excellent value for the room cost. I am happy to recommend it to anyone looking for a good place to stay in San Diego. Read less

The hotel was nice, it's quite large, the grounds are pretty and there's a nice pool and hot tub. The rooms were clean and large and there's parking for a reasonable fee. The only issue is that this hotel is very far from anything, we are not even sure how we managed to book something so far away from the city as reviews mentioned it was in a great location. It is literally right on the highway near a bunch of other budget hotels. We had to take taxis and drive into the city every morning and night. The drive was only 10-20 minutes but nothing is walkable. Would be an amazing hotel if it was just closer to the city. Read less

Me and my girlfriend recently stayed here for a vacation getaway from rainy New England and we had a blast. The hotel was in a great location and less than a $15 Uber ride to all the best sights. Plus there is an enterprise right in the hotel if you wanted to rent a car too. There is also a hotel shuttle that will bring you to certain places… Read more
Me and my girlfriend recently stayed here for a vacation getaway from rainy New England and we had a blast. The hotel was in a great location and less than a $15 Uber ride to all the best sights. Plus there is an enterprise right in the hotel if you wanted to rent a car too. There is also a hotel shuttle that will bring you to certain places nearby and they front desk is super helpful. The room was great, whole hotel was clean and staff was very accommodating. The hot tub was a great spot to relax after a long day of walking around and being a tourist. We will certainly stay here again if we are back in the area. Read less

The hotel is in a great location and if your not one to drive around the hotel has a shuttle that goes to some of the attractions, or there's always Lyft or Uber, but if you want to rent a car Enterprise Rental is located at the hotel. The room was just right for us it was clean and housekeeping did a great job everyday. We were so busy that we weren't able to enjoy the pool this time around...but next time we will. Read less
