We had a great time. Check in was smooth. We loved the location and really enjoyed our time here. I wish that they didn't charge for parking. Rooms were clean and pool was sure nice. There are a lot of nearby restaurants and stores to check out that are nearby. They've added fire pits as a great addition.

We stayed for 10 nights in late February 2020, in a Marina View Suite (1 bedroom with 2 queen sized beds, full kitchen, balcony overlooking the marina). It was fabulous. We had not been to San Diego before, and we looked at several different hotels, but we are very glad we chose Humphreys, and will return on our next visit. The front desk staff… Read more
We stayed for 10 nights in late February 2020, in a Marina View Suite (1 bedroom with 2 queen sized beds, full kitchen, balcony overlooking the marina). It was fabulous. We had not been to San Diego before, and we looked at several different hotels, but we are very glad we chose Humphreys, and will return on our next visit. The front desk staff and the cleaning and maintenance staff are all very friendly and helpful. All of the grounds, the pool, the tropical gardens and the room were very clean and well-kept. The view of the marina from the room was serene, and the area around Humphreys is very close to most attractions, but nicely tucked away from some of the hustle and bustle of other areas of the city. There's a great boardwalk for walks or runs, several great restaurants within walking distance, and a great restaurant on-site at Humphreys (the Sunday Brunch is worth it!!). The room was very quiet and well-equipped, including a fully-stocked kitchen. The beds were comfortable, and there was a nice big balcony to take in the gentle breezes. The pool is big, the hot-tub is warm, and the pool area is surrounded by swaying palm trees and tropical gardens...even a couple of colourful parrots. They have tiki torches and chairs around several fire tables at night, chill music playing, and activities outside including ping pong by the pool, and a giant Connect Four game. If you want to party and be in the throngs of tourists around Mission Beach, this is not the place for you, but if you want a fun, relaxing and tropical getaway, whether it be as a family, as a couple, or with friends, you'll feel at home at Humphreys!

My girlfriend and I left chilly Washington State on a much anticipated road trip and arrived in tropical San Diego 8 days later. Humphreys Half Moon Inn had our room with a patio view of the marina an hour earlier than check-in time. We walked the resort enjoying the parrots, koi, and turtles that we discovered along the lush landscape. The buildings are older with lots of wood but well cared for. Sadly no complimentary breakfast but coffee maker is in the room. Happy hour is great otherwise the restaurant prices are high but portions are generous and food is great. Marina view is beautiful and very serene setting makes this resort/hotel memorable. We felt safe and secure staying here as there are gates at all the entrances. We visited Coronado Island which didn’t take too long to drive to. We loved the whole experience! Read less

The venue was next to marina, the food and the service was good, it was a great place to have an intimate wedding or reception. With a great hotel accomodation in a beautiful and safe area. If you are arriving from out town the hotel and venue are about 10 minutes from the airport and downtown restaurants area.

Very relaxed hotel, great rooms, lovely gardens, heated pool and hot tub(which we used in March). Great views of San Diego and music most evenings. Car parking available you. Have stayed before several years ago and were not disappointed to return. Had breakfast on the two mornings we were there, mistake to order granola and eggs, bacon, and potatoes. Could not manage it all.....so next morning just had some toast and bacon, plenty to fill a “Brits” tummy! Read less
