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.

We enjoyed San Diego,but the hotel is lacking on service,every morning we had to wait for quite a while to be seated for breakfast and our meal !!! The shuttle service was very convenient and the driver Ismael was super nice and helpful !!! We also enjoyed the pool area,except the jacuzzi had built up off Alge and mold ,especially around the water return.

Wasn't aware that the hotel had separate buildings that felt like dorm rooms. All the pictures show the lush main grounds/building which isn't anything like the area we were in.

You really can’t beat the price! Especially when you consider it includes a full breakfast for two and essentially free in and out parking

Breakfast was fine.

Your website advertised it had the largest outdoor heated pool so that was the main reason I booked this hotel. The pool was definitely not heated.

Our check in and check out process was quick. Room was ready when we arrived. Staff is always very friendly and helpful. Parking is ample, but fills up quickly when events are being held at the hotel. Always a great experience.

This is a hidden gem in San Diego. Great rooms for the price. Clean rooms and friendly staff. It is a great location to stay and be close to all of San Diego's attractions. Inexpensive Uber and Lyft to Downtown areas.

The free breakfast was a bit limited, so we didn't end up using the coupons. Room could have used some sprucing up (loose shower head, missing grout). But overall a good experience at a good price for San Diego.
