Should have been told more

We walk into the hotel and another customer was having issue's with the manager. I asked if we would have a view of the ocean, the desk clerk could not answer and would not answer. I ask, do I have a view of the parking lot? She answered yes[...].

Nice Place

Wife really liked it. Reminded her of Maui. Dinning at the hotel restaurant was very good. The lounge had good happy hours and good music. Close to the airport but didn't hear any jet noise. I would like to go there when they have a big name at their concert venue.

UPGRADES IN ROOM/APPRECIATED!

We did not realize that Shelter Island was mostly Marina for storage & repair of boats. Would prefer a different location next time. Also, the exterior of Humphreys needs maximum remodel. Our room remodel was first class, & clean.....good service.

It has potential.

This hotel is beautiful on the outside but It could be so much better in the inside if they would take care of the minor details. It looks like It is a work in progress for an upgrade of a 1970s hotel, the bathroom doors looked they have about 6 coats of paint over them, the shower head pipe cover was not attached to the wall and the sink stand looked like it had been carved with an ax to make room for the drain pipes and you could also hear your neighbors above you. On the other hand the bedding was nicely done, the room had what it seemed to be a brand new flat screen tv and the exposed beams on the ceiling gave it a certain character. Another thing, they will charge you $10 a day for parking which to me makes the whole thing sounds like a cheap place to stay at but again the place looks very charming with its Hawaiian atmosphere and beautiful garden. The pool was not bad either.

You have to visit the Gaslamp Quarters. Incredible amount of restaurants to go and it is close to Petco Park. You can't go wrong.

Highs and lows

The grounds are awesome, the rooms are unique and nice. The location is good. The front desk / reservations staff left something to be desired, and the price was not good value when you added it all up.

Good and bad

friendly staff but need pool monitor. One of the guests made their baby swim in the pool with yellowish diaper (not swimming diaper). They opened the diaper and it was soiled with brown stains - everybody knows what it is. Unsanitary, none of the hotel staff knew about it but I saw it and other guests. Anyway, these guests probably knew nobody is staffing the pool so they just went ahead and did what they want to do.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Hotel has its own concert hall and is almost having concerts every night. Problem is parking on the left side of the hotel. Guests lose their parking at night because of concerts. That's the big downside. Guests are not allowed to park close to their room because the parking space gets changed to valet parking for the concert. Some guests had to park at the Marina and walk to the hotel.

Nice family getaway

This was a nice and convenient place to stay. The hotel rooms were a little dated but tidy. It was in an area that easily accessed local restaurants and attractions. Seeing other hotels in the area and their locations I felt we made a good choice in choosing Humphreys.
