Birthday Trip With Friends

The hotel was a good deal overall. The pool area was nice. The problem was that for the amount we paid and since it was during the week, I would have hoped to get a room with a balcony or at least a pool view. It is a little far from the beach and Downtown SD. But overall it is a nice hotel.

Average

It did not meet my expectations for the money paid. Staff did not explain much they seemed to be in a rush. The bathroom shower handle came off water was not draining door security latch was coming off. During my check out, the lobby attendant was busy checking his stocks online rather than listening and asking how my stay was.

Family trip

The hotel is in a good location. My son was disappointed that the hotel wasn't close to the beach but we did so many activities from going on a bay cruise to Old Town Trolley ride and all the activities as easy to get to from the hotel. When we checked in we were told that it would be $14.00 a night for parking and as this wasn't stated anywhere we were given a discount but honestly there is no street parking available or any alternate parking so I feel it is a rip off to charge for parking at all.

Cisco Live 2015

I got a last minute deal at Handlery Hotel, and it turned out pretty good. I was walking distance from the Trolley, the rooms was clean and the mall was in walking distance. I didn't eat at the hotel restaurant, but the food looked pretty good. Also, there were enough restaurants within a couple minutes car ride. The one issue I had was parking voucher, I didn't know I needed to re-use the same one over and over. However, there was plenty of parking.

San Diego Trip for 2 couples

My friends and I shared a room to save on money. The room was all the way in the back, right next to the back entrance of the building, and we always got great parking. The room was clean for the most part just the floor was wet in one spot, probably from cleaning the carpet nonetheless it was wet. We got a room on the ground floor so we heard a lot of chatter from the hallway, stairway, and our upstairs neighbors. The biggest downfall was no wifi was offered for free.

Should be called Handlery Motel not Hotel

The hotel is in need of a major remodel as its super old and feels like your staying in an old motel room. The room was rather dusty (coffee maker & tv), comforter and linens had numerous stains, the walls are too thin that you can literally hear everything in adjacent rooms and hallway, water pressure in shower is too low and the bathroom is way too small and needs ventilation. The upside is that they are pet friendly.

The hotel was great and quiet. I went with my daughter and my wife for a family vacation. We went to the beach and walked around downtown. Great hotel and fun place to visit.

Great valentines getaway

The hotel is off of the freeway and you have to drive at least 20 minutes to get anywhere. I found a couple of hairs in the shower. Staff was friendly. Over $350 for a 2 night stay...
