The amazing part of Humphreys is the major stage for concerts located on the property overlooking the bay. Big name celebrities from the past do shows here. What a great entertainment venue but if you had a room near the stage and you did not like the music that may be a problem for some.

We stayed here for two nights in February and would gladly stay here again. Its an older hotel but does not have the "musty" smell some older ones do. Our room had been recently renovated and was clean an comfortable from top to bottom. Prices were reasonable but what I liked most was the atmosphere when we walked along the marina outside. Very comfortable all the way around!

We stayed at the Half Moon Inn after attending a concert at the fabulous Humphrey's venue. The price was good, the room was spotless (it's an older property but nicely renovated). The rooms on the marina are bright and offer splendid views. Walk out the door and you can wander along the marinas watching the boats of all sizes, incl huge navy vessels. The staff of the hotel and the guests we met were all as friendly as can be. I think perhaps the type of folks who choose this hotel (rather than a high-rise big name hotel) are mellow and adventurous.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, upgrade to a marina view room on the third or second floor!

I went to a concert recently and spent the night at the hotel, which was a real convenience. My room was great - cozy with a beautiful slate bathroom floor and a king sized bed. There were shutters on the window leading out to a little patio with two chairs facing the pool gardens. Everything was great until I got into bed and I heard a crunch. Not a down comforter crunch, but a plastic crunch. Best I can figure, the bed has a waterproof mattress cover which was also very hard and lumpy and kept bothering my feet. I spend the rest of the night restless because of that and the sweating caused by either the sheets or the liner or both. Too much polyester in a sheet does that to me. To top it off, the pillows were lumpy. I loved the place and want to stay after another concert, but I don't know that I can after that experience. On the plus side, the staff was great and there is free wifi, and the hotel restaurant was excellent too.

Room Tip: The rooms are in two story buildings and the bottom unit I was in was quiet.

Thank you for your recent visit with us. We're happy to hear that most of your experience at Humphreys was pleasant, except for the mattress liner. Due to valuable feedback from guests such as yourself, we have since removed all of the waterproof liners from all mattresses. We truly appreciate your comments and hope to see you on your next visit to San Diego!

We have stayed at the Half Moon before and were facing the marina. This time we chose to face the bay and the Marine Air Station. What a treat to wake up and open the shades to fine the morning sun greeting us. The room was clean, the staff responsive and helpful, and the food was excellent. When we go back, we will stay there.

Room Tip: Eastward views of the Bay give you morning sun, Westward views of the marina give you the sunset.

This is a fine resort (really a motel on steroids), that has beautiful grounds, a good restaurant, and is right across from the marina on one side and a beach (although not one of San Diego's best) on the other. A great place if you like to bicycle (I believe the hotel will lend you one). Great for kids. The only negative is that there is not too much nearby, especially in the way of restaurants, or interesting shops, but that isn't why people stay here. The rates are reasonable except perhaps when there is a concert. This resort is a great spot for intimate concerts and attracts many well known performers. You should check the schedule. When there is not a concert the resort is great for families and couples wanting some rest or leisure at a reasonable rate. If there is a performer on the schedule you like, there hardly could be a better place to stay and watch them.

We had reserved a suite facing the garden but, when we arrived, the hotel was not full. The staff member gave us an upgrade to a suite facing the marina. We got it at a great sale price. The suite is not lavish but it is roomy, everything worked great, beds comfortable. Plenty of room to spread out for a week's stay. The location is on beautiful Shelter Island which is near many attractions by car. All the desk and cleaning staff were very helpful and friendly. We ate at two good restaurants within walking distance - Brigantine's and Miguel's.
