Why We Love This Hotel

  • Rooms come with free Wi-Fi and were just renovated in 2018
  • Warm and friendly service is a staple at this fourth-generation family-owned boutique
  • The property boasts one of the biggest outdoor heated pools in the Mission Valley
  • Free courtesy shuttle to SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo and other spots within 3 miles


With a family-owned history that spans 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 -- all renovated in 2018 -- are traditional 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 plus 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 casual SoCal style. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available at Postcards, which specializes in American bistro cuisine.

Dated hotel with moldy smelling lobby and room. Overall atmosphere was lacking. Bathroom/shower was run down.

First room was unsatisfactory. Mold in the shower and smelled like it had recently been fumed. The staff swapped out our room with another no problem. Service personnel were very attentive. Hotel could use some updating yes, but all in all for the price it was a good deal.

The Travelzoo deal included a hot breakfast daily and included gratuity which was worth it. (Eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, breads, pancakes, fruit, and yogurt. The staff was so friendly Carman always greeted us each morning with a smile. They went above to accommodate our stay. We arrived after midnight (all female group) so they had security escort us to our room to help make us comfortable. Our room had a large balcony with chairs and a side table. The only down side was that our room was located in the building furthest away from pool and restaurant.

Hotel is perfectly located near Interstates 8 and 5 and Road 163 which allows access to anywhere; downtown, the beach , Sea World, Coronado Island, etc. There are plenty of shopping options nearby, some even in walking distance or the hotel offers a shuttle until 5pm within 5 miles. We rented a car from Enterprise, their office is conveniently located in the lobby of the hotel. Malia and her staff worked with our flight delays to help keep us from being stranded for hours before our flight. Overall we had a great trip and would stay at the Handlery Hotel again.
