The hotel is crawling with roaches and fruit flies… they’re everywhere! Also, management was horrible upon bringing this up to them. Absolutely gross hotel under the disguise of somewhere actually decent. Travelers beware!

Started out as an average hotel stay, room was just fine. Later that night we realized the A/C didn’t really work (fan came on but no cold air). About 3am comes around and we wake up to the worst smell possible. Guess what it’s raw sewage backed up into the shower! We informed the front desk and all they said was “yea we think someone flushed a washcloth” offered us another room for 1 hour to take showers. Lol well if my room has this happening and your already aware of it I’m sure the other rooms also have this issue. Nothing else was offered or apportion givin. Cool thing we all get to small literally poop (look at the picture) while trying to sleep, no showers, no brushing teeth pretty sad for a hotel close to down town San Diego.

Very unaccommodating could not help to check us in 15 minutes prior to the 3 o’clock check in time and was very disrespectful. Unfortunately we didn’t know how horrible this hotel was and had to rebook at another hotel. Don’t waste your time. Looks sketchy too.

It is an older hotel, and the time of this review is when we are just now seeing light at the end of the COVID tunnel, so we have to keep this in perspective. With that in mind, this hotel is clean but it is old. When we first got here my 1st impression is that it reminded me of a Vegas hotel of the 60s. Kinda what I imagine going to the Flamingo or the Sands would have been in their heyday. The room was pleasant, clean and comfortable. We had a "premier" room, which means we had a small balcony overlooking the parking lot and the 63 freeway. The room must have been well sealed because freeway noise was not an issue. Typical of most hotels, the shower water pressure was nothing to write home about. They installed those showerheads that squeeze the water through tiny holes to make it feel like high pressure, but it ain't! The pool area looked OK but we didn't get in because there were enough people in already so social distancing dictated... The lobby was somewhat forlorn because all the little shops and restaurants were closed. I would recommend lighting up the place so that it isn't so dark. Kinda depressing. But Handlery did offer the best pricing in the area, so there's that.
