Not for young families

Would not recommend Thu 14 Aug 2014
Humphrey's has a lot going for it, but an equally large number of things going against it. My wife and I just spent a week there with our little boy celebrating his 1st birthday. The positives of Humphrey's are, first and foremost, the location. Right on Shelter Island, awesome views of several marinas and downtown San Diego are literally a one minute walk away. I spent tons of time just sitting on a park bench watching people load and unload their boats, which was surprisingly fun and relaxing...and sometimes funny. A great pool on site, surrounded by palm trees and vegetation...very nice if you don't prefer the beach. Now the negative. Humphrey's has a large marina amphitheater that does concerts and shows almost every night of the year. While this could be a great selling feature to a certain crowd, it's far less than ideal when you have a toddler that goes to sleep by 7:30. The concerts usually start by 8 pm and believe me, you know when they start. I literally lied in bed humming along to "Sweet Home Alabama" while Lynyrd Skynyrd performed 30 yards from my door. Our boy woke up several times during the concerts and we tried our best to drown out the noise with the air conditioner. As for the room itself, it was way overdue for some TLC. The carpet had numerous stains, and the bathroom was almost comical how badly it had been let go. Several granite tiles in the shower were cracked and pulling away from the wall by at least a 1/4". All the chrome fixtures were badly faded and gross. The wallpaper in the bathroom was separating from the wall and peeling up in the corners. All the finishing touches in a hotel that tend to make them nice, had been been badly neglected. The staff was also very ordinary (particularly the house keeping and maintenance crew whom I always greeted with a "hello" and was always ignored). All in all, this place may work for a young couple for a weekend but I will not be returning with my family...too many other options that better cater to young families.

Entertainment hint

Sit and watch the boats load/unload from the marina. Saw many seals swimming right among the boats.

Vacation

2nd time staying at Humphreys. My son especially enjoys the foliage near the pool with a little pond with fish and turtles. Convenient to the airport and also great views of the water close by. Pool and hot tub are always great. Amenities in room (fridge and microwave) are definitely a plus with a little one.

Hotel room was clean, could use a little sprucing up but the location was beautiful. Staff was cordial, food was good. Nice location, close to amusement parks, great seafood spot. Try Mitch's Seafood on the Marina was so good. Overall not bad stay too pricey, but alot of that had to do with the time we stayed.

Amazing

Would recommend Sat 12 Jul 2014
Best hotel in the area. Great rooms, awesome service and staff. The mango margaritas by the pool are addictive. Next time we go back to San Diego we will definitely book our stay here again. Only thing we didn't like was the $14.99 parking charge at the hotel, other than that it was amazing.

Entertainment hint

Old Town San Diego is a must to visit.

10 Days in San Diego

Would recommend Thu 10 Jul 2014
Humphrey's is a charming hotel in a great location. It's 15 - 30 minutes from Torrey Pines, La Jolla, Cabrillo Reserve, Ocean Beach, and pretty much everything else you would want to see. My husband, four kids, and I really enjoyed our stay. It's location makes sight seeing very convenient and after a long day of enjoying the city it was great to come back and sit by the pool or take a walk along the bay. The staff is great! Brian, who grew up in the area, was friendly, helpful, and advised us on local spots to visit. We're looking forward to going back!
