“Shelter Islands #1 Destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Humphreys Half Moon Inn & Suites was a pleasant experience all the way around. The front desk person (Chris) was helpful, accommodating, and friendly. Once the hotel knew that we were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary they sent complimentary chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of Champagne to our room. The room was comfortable and well appointed and also had a great view. I would recommend this property highly. We extended our stay by one day because it was SO nice!

This was our 2nd stay here and both times were great. This trip we stayed 4nights 5 days, everything seems to be close and easy to get around, the pool area was wonderful and yes I swim in the pool on 2-7-2013 outdoors. We love this hotel and San Diego area

Once you leave the parking lot and step into the grounds, it really does feel like you are in Hawaii. The tropical foliage and proximity to the water gives you that sense of being in a completely different location. The pool area is simply enchanting, surrounded by trickling waterfalls and streams with large fish.

We caught their 40% off sale and were thrilled when we arrived to enter a newly redone room, one of the nicest makeovers I have ever seen. Truly unique touches and made the best of every single inch of space. The plantation shutters over the patio doors, create warmth and a unique island feel...I just can't say enough how excellent the decore is and the quality of the mattress and pillows.

The downsides for us came in the morning...starting at 7am we could hear neighbors talking outside our door, and feel the tromp of guests above us on the second floor. Otherwise, nothing terrible noted.

i wasn't too happy to discover that our parking was not free. We were charged $10 a day, however, because we received the 40% off rate, I couldn't complain.

My husband caught the free airport shuttle that starts at 7am and it allowed him perfect timing to catch his 8:15am flight.

Although breakfast is not included, there are many many interesting local restaurants around and we enjoyed this cool beach town, but also the privacy of being a bit away from the bustle on Shelter Island.

I will always check into Humphries first when I come back to San Diego!

Room Tip: Try not to get near sound stage if you are trying to have a tranquil stay.

I was in San Diego for the long President's Day weekend visiting my daughter, and chose Humphrey's based on location, price, reviews and amenities. It proved to be the right choice. Not lavish, but lavish is not what I wanted or wanted to pay for. The room was large and immaculate, and I was upgraded to a first floor room facing the pool - a good choice. The grounds were very well kept and the pool was well situated and relaxing. Bicycle loaners were an added bonus, allowing rides up and down the island. The restaurant was excellent, and the Bali Hai restaurant was within walking distance and excellent food and atmosphere.

More than 30 of our guests stayed at this hotel two weeks ago for our wedding reception, which was held just across the parking lot at the Bali Hai Restaurant. We could not have made a better decision on the whole setup. We toured a couple of other hotels nearby and Humphrey's was the best. The hotel is beautifully maintained and was perfect for all of our guests, including families. The layout completely lends itself to hanging out with friends and family. Unlike a downtown location, it's simple to get in and out of and the parking is free. The staff was wonderful all around. The Sales office gave us a fantastic special wedding rate. Our guests loved the fact that we made things so easy.

Finally, this review would not be complete without an acknowledgment of the club/restaurant. We ended up there at the end of the night and wow, who knew? Live band, packed nightclub. We were expecting a lonely hotel bar. It turned into a really amazing after party!

We came back the next day to watch the Superbowl and had a chance to enjoy the happy hour food -- definitely a step up from the usual hot wings. Thank you, Humphrey's! We were able to spend quality time together with our dearest out-of-town family and friends, who were all treated well. You can't put a price tag on that. Our weekend was a total success in no small part to you guys.

Normally stay in Gaslamp area of San Diego but tried Humphreys for a change. Original room was of a poor standard on ground floor facing out to main car park. Small, dark and strange smell so immediately went to reception to request another room and was given an upgrade to a suite overlooking the main stage area that we were very pleased with. Spacious, clean and of a significantly higher standard than orginal room that was supposed to be a superior room. Reception staff were very helpful and free shuttle bus to airport provided. The restaurant was lovely for breakfast and dinner and the bar with live music was also very good. There are some good restaurants within walking distance. The red sails was a favourite of ours with a good selection of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The only downside was the location. I missed not being able to walk from hotel to downtown San Diego attractions and we had to drive most days.

Room Tip: Go for suite or top floor room.

I've written several reviews stating that so many places are the best but this one really is. Humphries is by far my families favorite place to go. Its easy to get to and once you're there you feel like you're thousands of miles away.
The Tropical setting , pool, Beach, marina....its beautiful. In the summer they host big name groups for outdoor concerts right on the grounds....its a blast. The walk up and down Shelter Island drive is great...great restaurants, a bar or two, marinas, coffee. We come here at least twice a year and just relax. Downtown, Ocean Beach is an easy drive if you want to wander.
Spend the money and get a suite facing the Marina. You WILL NOT regret it.

Room Tip: Marina side....get a suite
