Rooms need a makeover, bathroom was really small. Room service trays from other rooms were left in hallways for nearly 24 hrs. Not great location wise - especially if you plan to go to Legoland -recommendation would be to stay in Carlsbad. We caught the trolley and the Coaster and the hotel told us there would be taxis at Carlsbad...

However the beds were comfortable & the rooms were really quiet during the night. Bathroom was small & the...

My husband and I stayed at the Handlery Sept23rd to the 28th and it was fantastic. We asked to switch rooms after the first night just because we were by a stairway and it was too noisy and they were more than helpful. Didn't ask any questions or make us feel like we were putting them out or anything-our next...

We chose the handlery San diego because of previously staying in the one in San Francisco. I think this is a lovely hotel, all the staff are really friendly and helpful and you also get some free breakfast vouchers included in your stay. All in all an overall good stay.

Just had a great trip to the States and the only downfall was the San Diego hotel….long story, I decided to stay there for my last 5 nights as I was over moving around hotels. I did the upgrade but they could only do the upgrade for the last 4 nights – I wanted a downstairs room by the pool....

We had a group of 17 people, with developmental and physical disabilities, stay at the hotel and we were treated like gold. The staff was accommodating and went out of their way to make our stay memorable and enjoyable. The rooms were not super fancy but clean and fresh for the price; the wheelchair rooms were very efficient. The pool...

Overall the hotel was a bit far out for those who don't have their own transport although the guy who drives the hotel van is very accommodating and will take you most places within reason.The rooms were a bit dated but were clean and tidy. Again because of being on the freeway there were a limited number of places to...
