Humphreys Half Moon Inn is our favorite place to stay in San Diego. All the staff are cheerful and eager to help. The entertainment at Humphreys Backstage is a lot of fun and should not be missed. The Humphreys restaurant has some of the best food and service in San Diego.

This place is gorgeous. The area is quiet aside from the times that you can occasionally hear a plane take off. So much to do around there, and it's right across from the san diego bay. Would definitely recommend it. Only complaint we had was that tr bed was kind of loud (made noise as we rolled around in the middle of the night, but might have… Read more

Stayed here on Sunday night. Check in is at 4pm. The front desk was very friendly and informative. The vibe upon walking in is almost like a 70's time capsule remodeled. We were given the option of an upstairs or downstairs room which was nice. The room was a good size. It was bright and the color scheme was nice. There was a bar area… Read more
Stayed here on Sunday night. Check in is at 4pm. The front desk was very friendly and informative. The vibe upon walking in is almost like a 70's time capsule remodeled. We were given the option of an upstairs or downstairs room which was nice. The room was a good size. It was bright and the color scheme was nice. There was a bar area with a fridge and microwave, which was a big factor is choosing this hotel. The bed could have been more comfortable. The front desk was able to accommodate us with a later check out time. This place definitely has good customer service. The grounds were very nice. They have a concert venue, a big pool, lots of greenery and a beautiful view of the San Diego skyline. Another added bonus is they have laundry onsite if needed and I know they offer rooms with kitchens. There are also concert packages available that are held on the grounds which is unique. They have a restaurant on site. One side has tvs and a more casual atmosphere and the other is more formal. We would stay here again and I would recommend this hotel to others. I subtracted a star for the excessive parking fee and the beds needing to be upgraded. Read less

I was very excited to stay at this hotel due to it's location as well as the previous reviews. I was very disappointed. Upon arrival to our room, they were cleaning the nearby rooms so there was a food tray, empty pitcher, a glass full of milk, and a second pitcher left out on the landing outside our door. While not the nicest view you want to see upon arrival I assumed that they would be cleaned up when the cleaning people left. Unfortunately they were left there overnight and were not removed until the next day. The room itself was also dirty, we found hair on the shower wall, splattered grime on the mirror and doors, leftover food on the microwave, excessive dust on the tv & dresser, stains on the chairs, and someone else's shoes under the bed. Normally I don't have the cleaning people come in every day since it is not needed but I had them come in the next day to clean, everything that was dirty stayed that way. Another annoying thing was whoever cleaned the room prior to our arrival shut the plunger in the sink so when you washed your hand the water stayed in the bowl. It was an easy fix but gross to have to stick your hand in dirty water as we realize we had to check to make sure the sink was draining normally before using. In addition, the hot tub & putting green were both closed during our stay and the closest ice machine & pop machine to our room didn't work and had a sign posted on then to go to a different machine. This was especially frustrating since you are charged a daily resort fee. Overall I would say that while this used to be a nice hotel it isn't being taken care of very well. I did like the location but that was about it. I would not stay here again due to the level of dirtiness. Read less

The most awesome service, accommodations and hottest band in San Diego...The Detroit Underground! We’ve followed this band for the past few years; Pechanga messes up by not keeping them, Valley View doesn’t have them often enough and Humphreys is on it!

The most awesome service, accommodations and hottest band in San Diego...The Detroit Underground! We’ve followed this band for the past few years; Pechanga messes up by not keeping them, Valley View doesn’t have them often enough and Humphreys is on it! The grounds at Half Moon Inn are awesome, giving you the feeling of being on a tropical island somewhere and the peace and tranquility cannot be beat! Did I mention the concert venue looks great and we will try that during the summer of 2021 as well! Plus we’ve already told 25 people about our New Years Party there with the band and the awesome breakfast that came with the NY package! Rp Read less
