I arrived at this hotel on Febuaray 18,2017 for an early check-in. The guy at the front desk was nice and quick at the entire process. Their is a deposit at this hotel of either $50 on a credit card or $100 cash. Dogs are also welcome as long as it's under 40 pounds. Which I thought was really cool....

Just wanted to say a big thank you to the staff at Handlery hotel for making our stay memorable. The rooms were clean and spacious and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was close to a mall, freeway and 5 mins car drive to attractions. Also was close to the public transport system which you could catch to all...

We were greeted at the desk by Ben, who was chipper, smiled, and was very helpful during our five day stay. He went above what he was required to do. He gave us recommendations of things to do, places to eat, and always with a helpful attitude. The Handlery shuttle drivers were helpful and friendly, too! Housekeeping staff were excellent...

My boyfriend and I picked this place last minute after our original plans fell through. The price was very reasonable for a big sized room with a king bed. The best part was definitely the service by one of the front desk staff. Brad was so nice to us and accommodating after we asked to switch rooms. He even gave...

The best part of this hotel experience was the staff. Everyone from the lady that answered the phone and took our reservation, the front desk staff and the restaurant staff; they were all very professional, friendly, helpful and accomodating. As an employer for 30 years, I compliment the management for hiring good people and training them well in customer service....

We were very disappointed in our stay at this hotel. The room was clean but we were there with a group and 3 of the 8 couples did not get the rooms that they booked. They were told they would have to move rooms and when they agreed to move to another hotel they were suddenly given the rooms they...

I was on a king-bed single room and found it very neat. They pre-charge an amount on your card in case you use something extra and return it at the end of the stay. When I used the restaurant, they took care of my food intolerance. I recommend it.

Been staying here for the better part of 30 years. I know what to expect, and generally enjoy my time here when I stay. As noted in many reviews, the rooms are nothing special. However, the grounds are Tropical and restful, the pool area is great, and the bartenders are first rate. HOWEVER...Service in the breakfast lounge is terrible. Booked...

It is very conveniently located for all attractions in the San Diego area if you are traveling with the family.
