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 causal SoCal style. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available at Postcards, which specializes in American bistro cuisine.

Other Comments
Rooms are updated. Bathrooms are small with very little counterspace. TV was basic with no guide to see what was on. Phone did not work. Room service was not available even though there was a menu in room. Only 2 free breakfast passes were allowed per room. Room was 1st floor and poolside so was a bit noisy when we could here profanity laced argument and loud music. Mini fridge was barely cold. Breakfast was good and had a variety of items.

The water in the tub did not drain properly and we were disappointed that the shuttle driver left early when we asked for service. Other than that the staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and updated and the location is great!

Check your bill! I booked at one price but noticed they charged $70 on my credit card. I called and they said it was a price adjustment because the Travelzoo price was wrong. They ultimately refunded me the difference.

Literally could hear every single noise through the door and through the walls. Absolutely could not sleep because someone coughing down the hall felt like it was right in my ear.
