Very AccomodatingPosted Mar 3, 2014
The hotel was reasonable priced. The food was good. The best part of this place is the staff! Julia at the desk and Jeff in transportation were so helpful and friendly. We got free transportation to many destinations!

Small bedsPosted Mar 2, 2014
Overall the hotel was nice. Even tho it is right next to a golf course it's not the best. The doors are secure with card entry that was a plus. The room had two beds but not at all queen they were more like a full size. My two daughters have a queen size at home and they didn't fit that's how I knew it wasn't a queen (unless they changed the size in the past five years since I bought the bed). The bathroom door was chipped and paint peeling. The bath tub chalking had mold, but the slip mat was clean so they at least clean the mold could have been overlooked. All in all is good just to sleep and go not to enjoy a whole day inside due to rain like in my case.

lovely hotel for the price ... well worth it!Posted Feb 19, 2014
Pros: staff, pool, ... see above.
Cons: the room was a bit musty - if there were screens on the windows, we would have loved to have kept them open.
Location: see above
the handlery is a pretty, quiet and clean hotel. conveniently located on hotel circle drive, it was central to our first trip to san diego - 10 to 15 minutes in any direction got us somewhere worthwhile. the rooms are on the smaller end - would have been nice to have a sofa / sitting area. the beds and pillows were comfortable, the towels luscious, and the room spotlessly clean. gorgeous heated pool made for perfect lounging. the staff was cordial and responsive. loved the complimentary use of the business center to print boarding passes.

Okay hotelPosted Feb 18, 2014
Location: Good location and close to many San Diego things by driving but it is not within walking distance to anything such as other restaurants, etc.
It is an okay hotel. It is clean and parking is easy although they charge for parking. Lighting in the bathroom was not good. Some room service trays had been left for a LONG time in the hallway right outside our room. I finally asked them to remove them. There was no movie rental on the television. I did not use the pool or eat in the restaurant but the pool was very pretty. I would recommend it to some friends but not others and would rate it not the best but not the worst. It was not within walking distance to anything.

Very convenient locationPosted Feb 16, 2014
Pros: Location, pool, exercise room, staff, very comfortable bed - wanted to take it home.
Location: Close to trolley and two huge malls. Right next door to a beautiful golf course.
This hotel is lovely, with a large outdoor pool. Room and site are immaculate. Location very convenient - walking distance to the trolley that will take you downtown in a short time.

Good hotel, great staff, convenient location!Posted Feb 14, 2014
Pros: Convenience and Friendly staff.
Location: The hotel was located on the side of the freeway closest to the Fashoin Valley Mall and Trolley Station. Free shuttle to major attractions.
The hotel was conveniently located on the hotel circle on the same side of the freeway as the Fashion Valley Mall and Trolley Station, which was only a 5 - 7 min. walk. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The room was small but adequate for our vacation. The room was clean, housekeeping was good. The hotel front desk staff was exceptional! They were all very accommodating and helpful. Sam greeted us when we arrived and was very helpful with information of activities. One of the front desk managers (whose name I did not remember) took care of us when we had an issue with the TV in our room and wanted to catch a TV special. She made arrangements to have the TV in the lounge available for us to watch the TV special. She also helped us with restaurant suggestions. Jeff, the transprotation manager, shuttled us to Old Town and Balboa Park even after we missed his scheduled runs (we hadn't checked for a schedule ahead of time). He was very friendly and helpful with activity information. We stayed here for our first visit, as they advertised the free shuttle to major attractions in area. This turn out to be a great decision as the convenience this hotel provided was great and the staff was exceptional. We used the Trolley regularly to get to many areas and found it easy and convenient. We would definitely stay here again.

Great ValuePosted Feb 3, 2014
While I admit I was initially somewhat disappointed in the small, simple room, I was won over by the amazingly friendly and helpful staff and the cost of the stay. It is more of a budget hotel, but given that we didn't actually spend a lot of time there, it suited our needs well. Additionally, the hotel shuttle is very useful for visiting nearby main attractions and the staff is happy to make arrangements for other transportation needs, as well. (And the driver we had, Jeff, was fantastic!) Our family of four (children aged 4 & 7) enjoyed our stay at Handlery and our vacation in (and around) San Diego. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.
