I was surprised as to how rundown this hotel is. Coming from the San Francisco Bay Area thought the Handlery name meant quality. Rust on bathroom fixtures and rusty hand railings were all visible. Has any regular maintenance been done at this property?

The hotel is crawling with roaches and fruit flies… they’re everywhere! Also, management was horrible upon bringing this up to them. Absolutely gross hotel under the disguise of somewhere actually decent. Travelers beware!

Started out as an average hotel stay, room was just fine. Later that night we realized the A/C didn’t really work (fan came on but no cold air). About 3am comes around and we wake up to the worst smell possible. Guess what it’s raw sewage backed up into the shower! We informed the front desk and all they said was “yea we think someone flushed a washcloth” offered us another room for 1 hour to take showers. Lol well if my room has this happening and your already aware of it I’m sure the other rooms also have this issue. Nothing else was offered or apportion givin. Cool thing we all get to small literally poop (look at the picture) while trying to sleep, no showers, no brushing teeth pretty sad for a hotel close to down town San Diego. Read less

Very unaccommodating could not help to check us in 15 minutes prior to the 3 o’clock check in time and was very disrespectful. Unfortunately we didn’t know how horrible this hotel was and had to rebook at another hotel. Don’t waste your time. Looks sketchy too.
