Why We Love It

  • 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.

The bathroom was a bit small, but the patio area was huge and looked out a grassy area.

Our room was old and worn. Carpet was so dirty we couldn't walk in bare feet or stocking feet w/o them turning black. Bathroom was miniscule, ancient & not very clean.

Very centrally located. It is right off the interstate and there is a mall close by. The breakfast was plentiful and again the staff was very friendly and interactive.

The cleanliness, the hotel staff, the breakfast staff and meal plus ultimately the location to all of the places we wanted to visit and see during our stay. We found the entire hotel and the staff to be wonderful and kind. Watch also the videos on the hotel website which the owner of the hotel in both San Diego and San Francisco made! They are hilarious and so funny!

Love having the travelzoo discount for the parking reduced to only $5 a day which was greatly beneficial and made a difference in the pricing. Plus the free breakfast coupons included in the Travelzoo package for this hotel was an added bonus which was very delicious and filling! Great way to start the day.

The staff was great the free breakfast and parking was a wonderful value. If you’re looking to be pampered and have great views this isn’t the place for you but it was pretty clean and convenient for getting around.
Other Comments
The room was “fine” the balcony facing the pool was very enjoyable, seating area in the room would have been appreciated, the “fitted” sheets on the bed were never completely covering the foot of the bed which really made me uncomfortable and felt unsanitary. The woman who cleaned the room was very sweet and probably didn’t realize this but maybe some better fitting bedding is needed. If you are looking for a good deal and no frills this is a good value.
