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.

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.

Travelzoo confirmed my one price but emailed the hotel and increased price that I was charged upon checkout. Still trying to get reimbursed $100.00!!!

Was not pleased that a birthday party essentially monopolized the pool area one evening including unsupervised very small children . Towels were "unavailable" and pool area was messy on several days that we were there. But overall we had a positive experience.

I really enjoyed the Handlery. Yes, it is an older hotel but I think it served our purposes. The price was really good for a hotel in San Diego that is close to attractions. It was literally right off the freeway, like you pull of the exit and drive into the parking lot. There was also free breakfast and shuttle to local sites. The free breakfast was actually a FULL breakfast and not just a continental so that was really cool. There is a deep pool (10 feet at the deepest end) on the premises which is really cool because it is rare to see pools that go past 5 feet anymore. Parking was safe, close to the room and a decent price.

The place could use a hard deep clean (carpets shampooed, dust, random weird smells) , but I enjoyed myself and the hotel served my purposes for a short weekend vacation.
