Incredible getaway

From the moment we arrived at the hotel it was a very special experience. The staff was very helpful. The parking was very convenient to our room location. The room was spotless. Everything in our suite #316 was brand new. We were facing the private marina . We had our own patio with brand new table and 4 chairs. The lunch at their restaurant was superb. I highly recommend the crusted macademia sea bass or the fish and chips.(enormous amount of fries and the fish had a very light batter. It was scrumptious and enough for 2:. The pool area was spotless as well replete with plenty of towels. There is a bar near the pool and jacuzzy. We will return to this paradise.

Excellent Customer Service!

We thought we were getting a suite and was put in a regular room, however, the manager was VERY helpful and worked with us on getting a better room. The room was nice and clean - and they DID have suites - we just didn't pay attention when booking online.

The Perfect Stay in San Diego!

I absolutely love Humphreys Half Moon Inn & Suites! The rooms are very clean. The landscaping is beautiful and provides a very serene setting. Every night there is a jazz band in the restaurant with a gorgeous view of the harbor. This is where I plan to stay next time I am in San Diego! No more searching for that perfect hotel! I found it here!

Cabrillo National Monument is very close and is the most breathtaking scene that one must see! It is very touching. Just beyond it is the lookout point over San Diego and the ocean.

We enjoyed our overnight stay with an accommodating staff and excellent location. The rooms were clean and neat, the pool area was well designed and enjoyable. Breakfast in the restaurant was good with an attentive staff. I would highly recommend this hotel for all of the above reasons

Location is perfect

No matter what we asked for, it was done without question. We were given a room upgrade at no charge, comp breakfast which was wonderful, internet use and print options. Hurricanes did not alkow akska airlines to fly into the islands and we were at a loss until this option came our way..... A complete surprise with this anazingly easy to be in hotel with excellent access to the 101 highway or I 5 southbound.... Can't say enough about the hotel and the staff helpfulness and no problem assistance. A great job by this company who know how to pick staff. They all need recognised.

Not for young families

Humphrey's has a lot going for it, but an equally large number of things going against it. My wife and I just spent a week there with our little boy celebrating his 1st birthday. The positives of Humphrey's are, first and foremost, the location. Right on Shelter Island, awesome views of several marinas and downtown San Diego are literally a one minute walk away. I spent tons of time just sitting on a park bench watching people load and unload their boats, which was surprisingly fun and relaxing...and sometimes funny. A great pool on site, surrounded by palm trees and vegetation...very nice if you don't prefer the beach. Now the negative. Humphrey's has a large marina amphitheater that does concerts and shows almost every night of the year. While this could be a great selling feature to a certain crowd, it's far less than ideal when you have a toddler that goes to sleep by 7:30. The concerts usually start by 8 pm and believe me, you know when they start. I literally lied in bed humming along to "Sweet Home Alabama" while Lynyrd Skynyrd performed 30 yards from my door. Our boy woke up several times during the concerts and we tried our best to drown out the noise with the air conditioner. As for the room itself, it was way overdue for some TLC. The carpet had numerous stains, and the bathroom was almost comical how badly it had been let go. Several granite tiles in the shower were cracked and pulling away from the wall by at least a 1/4". All the chrome fixtures were badly faded and gross. The wallpaper in the bathroom was separating from the wall and peeling up in the corners. All the finishing touches in a hotel that tend to make them nice, had been been badly neglected. The staff was also very ordinary (particularly the house keeping and maintenance crew whom I always greeted with a "hello" and was always ignored). All in all, this place may work for a young couple for a weekend but I will not be returning with my family...too many other options that better cater to young families.

My personal experience

It was an exceptional experience. The room was clean. Had some issues at check in, the front desk staff, females, were not to friendly. Most of the cleaning staff was friendly, most could not speak english. The workman made a LOT of NOISE right below my room. Bed was fantastic, loved it and so did my sailor! Food was good, location was excellent.
