Overview

With a family-owned history that spans across four generations and over half a century, the Handlery Hotel specializes in friendly service. A moderate price tag and an easy-to-reach locale add to the appeal.

The boutique hotel is set in the north part of town in the Mission Valley neighborhood, so guests can hop on the highway and be at most of the city’s top attractions -- SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo, the Fashion Valley Mall and the Gaslamp District -- in 15 minutes flat. Parking is safe and secure and half the price of downtown hotels, plus there’s a convenient complimentary shuttle that treks to Old Town and spots within 3 miles.

Guest rooms are styled in traditional fashion and kept fresh with modern touches like free Wi-Fi and ergonomic work desks. Just beyond the sleeping quarters sits the centerpiece of the property -- a huge outdoor heated pool and hot tub with plenty of chaises for year-round lounging, and seasonal snacks and beverages from the poolside Reef Lounge. Upgraded premier rooms offer the best views and quickest access to the pool. The pool area closes at 10 p.m. but can be noisy during the day.

After a dip, head to the 950 Lounge for happy hour cocktails on Mondays-Thursdays, and jazz nights every Friday where staff menu picks like panko-crusted portebello mushroom fries are served in causal SoCal style. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available at Postcards, which specializes in American bistro cuisine.

Make the most of the city with this seven-day SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo and Safari Park pass.

We were upgraded to a half suite which I appreciated for the week stay. New bedding and newly refurbished, though the ceiling vent was very dirty, and rusted. The people were very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was very good.
