    About this area

    San Diego

    Next to a golf course, Handlery Hotel is in San Diego's Mission Valley neighbourhood, an area with good airport proximity. Port of San Diego and B Street Cruise Ship Terminal are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Old Town San Diego State Park and Balboa Park. Looking to enjoy an event or a game? See what's going on at SDCCU Stadium or Petco Park. Our guests appreciate the hotel's quiet location.

    Property condition


    Accessibility issues and poor service

    The facility is not easily accessible and very dated. My husband walks with a cane and the hotel has many stairs and sub levels so that meant he either had to walk a much longer distance to find a ramp or deal with stairs. Service at the hotel was also not very good especially at the restaurant. The staff was not very attentive and the food was not worth the cost.

    4/5 Good

    Property was central and close to many activities in San Diego. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Could have been cleaner.

    Stayed 5 nights in Oct. 2019


    No elevators

    No elevators made it difficult for a newborn and mom with a stroller

    Stayed 2 nights in Oct. 2019


    Property is average. Pool very cold. Rooms were muggy. AC load and rattling. Fridge not very cold and too small to hold very much.

    Stayed 3 nights in Oct. 2019

    5/5 Excellent

    Quiet and comfortable

    This was our 3rd stay here. It's an older hotel but in good shape. King bed was very comfortable. The concrete walls sure keep the noise down. The large pool and deck area are about the largest anywhere.

    Stayed 4 nights in Oct. 2019
