We stayed here in February after going to Legoland in Carlsbad. Great location once you figure out how the hell to get to it. We stayed at the far right hand side if at the entrance. We had a view of the boats in the marina. The rooms are great. Everything is touch button. They have microwaves, plasma tv, frigs, and nice size closets in the rooms. The pool is nice. They provided free bicycles to ride around the area too. The bad is parking is tight, and you are in a boating area so restaurants and stores are down the street about .4 miles. Very quiet and near the airport, zoo, and other spots. Worth the try. Enjoy!

We rented 2 rooms and a suite to celebrate a big birthday. Our newly upgraded suite had a noisy refrigerator, a door that did not latch correctly and peeling wallpaper. One room had a nonfunctional phone. The in room and room service coffee is weak. The location and view cannot be beat and we had a great time. But the staff could have been more helpful and the place needs spiffing up!

Don't even think of staying in theSan Diego. make the short drive over to Shelter Island and stay here. I was pleasantly surprised by this little hide-a-way. The front desk staff welcomed mehad been there many times before. My room was wonderful. Had a vaulted ceiling, wonderful view of Mission Bay and very clean. Internet worked fine. They do a $10 nightly parking fee. Make sure you take a walk around the property. It's beautiful!

Room Tip: Get a second level room if on Mission Bay side. The other side looks over the courtyard/pool arothe...

Just spent two weeks vacationing in California. Our home base is always Humphries By the Bay on Shelter Island in San Diego !
We stayed for 4 nights, then went to Catalina Island, Laguna Beach etc and back to Humphries for the last weekend of our trip.
The newly renovated junior marina suites are lovely ! Actually, the suites before the renovation were really good too ! We had both. The first part of the trip was the unrenovated and the last part was reno'd. I kinda liked the old one better because they got rid of the eating table and chairs and the makeup table ! Boohoo
Anyhow, the housekeeping staff are courteous and friendly and Chris in the office is excellent as well as Celina ! The concierge Brian is friendly and very helpful !
My only advise to my fellow travellers is to ask when you check in for a complimentary coupon for an appetizer at the Brigiantine Restaurant which is just down the street with excellent food !
I only found out about the coupon from the hostess at the restaurant after eating there 3 times this trip ! She was under the impression that Humphries gave the coupon to all the guests upon check-in ! Wow..... We have stayed at Humphries many many times !!
Anyway, the concerts are really fun too, although we are usually here in the off season, as we are from Canada .
Keep up the good work and thank you Humphries !!

Very nice hotel by the marina. Far enough away from the downtown city that you feel outside of the hustle and bustle, and yet if you want something to do, you are within 15 minutes of more activities than you could possibly cover in many weekends. The rooms themselves are very nice, but perhaps a bit dated, still very clean and comfortable. We will be coming back.

I really enjoyed my time at Humphreys! It was a little pricy, but worth it! I was going to stay at a cheaper place, but at the last minute, I decided to splurge and stay in a nicer place, on the waterfront. The well manicured grounds, the impeccably clean rooms, friendly staff and incredible views made it worth every penny!!!! I plan to stay at Humphreys Half Moon Inn & Suites again soon!

Room Tip: Keep in mind, Humphreys is also a concert venue, and during those concerts, things can be a little h...

We stayed for two nights, 10th and 11th April prior to flying home. Easy check in with helpful reception. Comfy room well appointed with amazing bed. Very good pool/jacuzzi area. Only down side we were on ground floor near car park but noise was not the hotels fault but other selfish guests.
Good bar and restaurant area with entertainment both nights. Other restaurants a short walk away. Very convenient for airport just 10 minute drive away. Also 10 mins to Old Town from where you can get tram to city (free parking too).
A very good stay and would do so again
