Needs some updating

The front desk staff was alone when I arrived and was trying to be accommodating to a possible future customer. After about 10 minutes, he was free to check me in and was very apologetic. He went out if his way to get me a map and help me get familiarized with area. Also gave me a trial sized toothpaste when I asked for a sundry shop. The accommodations are adequate. The air is off in the halls but they do have windows open to circulate air. The air has to be on a fixed temp as the thermostat read 71 and there is no way it was below 77 in my room. Pro: It's within walking distance if a Starbucks. Con: The street noise could be heard all night so if you are a light sleeper, you may want to pass on this place.

San Diego Getaway

The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful and courteous. The continental breakfast was very nice but I would recommend they stock a different brand of orange juice. Our room faced the street but the hotel had noise cancelling machines for our use which worked well at bedtime. Unfortunately, the pool is in the front of the building facing the street. It was on the small side, especially with the number of children using it. We only used the hot tub 1 night, so it didn't really affect us too much. The exercise room was small and had no directions posted regarding proper usage of the equipment (which would have been helpful). I would stay there again. It is a very convenient location.

Humphrey's Half Moon Inn & Suites has fabulous entertainment (some big names) at reasonable prices. Check out their concert schedule (April-October) well in advance of an anticipated trip to San Diego.

Great location!

Although you can hear the traffic on Harbor, it still is worth it b/c of the convenience to walk across the street to the marina and several food locations in the area. Easy access to old town, and several beaches. The hotel is nothing special, but served it's purpose for sleeping!

Wireless was a joke on the sixth floor! Reported three days in a row that wireless was almost useless it was so slow. My phone wouldn't connect because the wireless was so slow. It was useless so I had to go to the lobby to use wireless on my computer. Staff gave me nothing but excuses and tried to tell me it was my computer and phone even tho both connected fine in the lobby. Terrible wireless was bad enough but add staff making excuses and telling me it was my phone and computer was over the line!

Good for the price

We liked the location. Nice restaurants across the street that seem to stay open late.Took a walk around the harbor at night and felt very safe. Staff was accommodating and let us stay an hour after check out at no extra charge. The only downside was the street noise early in the morning. I did see that they offer use of a sound machine or will give you earplugs if you need them. My husband and I slept just fine without them. Comfortable beds!

Very pleased.

We had a great stay. The only concern we had was that the wireless internet service was extremely poor and most difficult to connect. Thankfully there was a computer off of the lobby for the use of the guests. Other than that the property was very clean and staff was accommodating. Would highly recommend as the location was extremely convenient to the airport and centrally located to many attractions and communities.

Family vacation

Room was nice the only issue I had was I requested a king bed. They gave me two queens because apparently someone never checked out and still charged me for the bigger room. Also their crib was a playpen which surprised me. Still it was great for what we needed and right next to where we were going.
