Humphrey's has a lot to offer on site. First, there is the music venue, which is a intimate places to some fairly big acts, but the resort itself was actually pretty compelling. They have a great lounge-type pool complete with a bar, putting green, spa, ping-pong tables, some sort of lagoon full of animals, and it is located on the marina. I felt like they offer a lot for a more moderate price, especially if you have a family in tow, or are interested in the music venue.

The room itself was nice, clean, and up-to-date, if small. It had a weird layout that didn't work well with the bathroom. I don't know how a concert would affect the Inn, but when I was there it was very quiet. It's located in a part of town that's a bit secluded, in the good way, and there is no competing noise. It's insanely quiet for San Diego. There is also a great walking trail around the bay located just down the street.

As a San Diego native, I've been to concerts at Humphrey's music venue, but I had never been to the hotel side before. Entirely secluded from the outside world on Shelter Island, the resort feels like a slice of Hawaiian paradise. Palm trees wave in the fresh breeze off the marina, quiet walkways snake their way around little waterfalls and ponds filled with giant fish, and in the center of the resort, like a centerpiece, is the giant swimming pool lined by beach recliners and oversized umbrellas. It's a bit of a walk to the restaurant, which is unattached to the rest of the hotel, but the sumptuous Mediterranean and Pacific-inspired menu, the bar's nightly live music (free cover for hotel guests), and the views over the sparkling marina are to die for. Just keep in mind that if you won't be attending that night's main event at the outdoor venue (big names play here!), expect some noise until about 11pm. With a suite the size of my apartment, though, you can easily while away the evening inside: watch a movie on the flatscreen TV, or soak in a bubble bath with their complimentary Terra Green toiletries. They smell like sweet spring rainwater.

I didn’t know what to expect when heading to Humphrey’s. I’ve heard of the occasional concert there, but they tend to be the one or two members of a band popular in the 70s types. I was pleasantly surprised by the updated tropical theme, and especially the winding pathways and dense foliage on the grounds. I loved the larger than average updated room with dark wood and an extra throw blanket on each bed. I also thought it was cute that the machines in the small gym have a great view out of giant windows literally feet from the water. RUN YOUR WAY TO FREEDOM, ha. Front desk service was a little slow, but that’s okay with me. I also enjoyed walking to the great view of downtown San Diego, where I could freely caw back at the local seagulls. Punks.

Humphrey's Half Moon Inn & Suites is a mecca of tropical beauty. Whenever I am visiting destinations that are known for sunshiny weather I always judge my hotel on the amount of palm trees it has. I know this is an irrational judgement, and than palm trees are not always characteristic of sunny spots, but in my head palm trees mean relaxation time. This palm tree packed hotel begs relaxation. Whether you book a suite (which are apartment like and have full kitchens) or a normal room you are bound to feel at ease. Ask for a room with a view of the marina, just because it adds to the feeling of San Diego. This hotel is especially cool because it is right next to Humphrey's concert venue, which hosts the wonderful "concerts by the bay" series. I have seen Joan Baez there, and with the cool San Diego breeze coming off the bay this venue is a real treat. The hotel also offers package deals for rooms and concert combos!! The hotel has a pool I could sit by all day, and if you get bored of lounging there is a ping pong table. And if you like seafood you MUST go to Point Loma Seafoods, which is just around the corner for some Oysters and beers. YUM.

Such a random little place... we got lost every time we tried to get back to the hotel, but it was worth it! Beautiful grounds.
