Was here for a short stay and very impressed. Staff was so friendly and accommodating. And following all of the COVID guidelines. The outdoor concert area is now a breakfast and lunch spot. We had 2 one bedroom suites that were like little apartments. We normally stay in a newer high rise hotel in the Gaslamp, but this place is wonderful. Just don't expect high-end luxury. The rooms are well-appointed and clean, with everything you need. Shout out to Darlene, who washed and loan me a coffee cup at 4a.m.! Will be back next month guys.

"A Time for Relaxation"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We try to stay at this property every time we come to San Diego. We love this place!!!! The hotel is off the beaten path of downtown and Mission Beach, yet still close to everything. The property is very peaceful and being on the edge of the peninsula makes its location ideal. We stayed for a week in the Grand Marina Suite, which gave us plenty of space for our family of 4. We enjoyed the facilities at the hotel daily and the staff was always very helpful and happy. If there is a downfall to the hotel, it is the "extra" price for parking, because for our family, once we were at the hotel, there was really no other place that we needed to drive to. We walked everywhere and kept this stay very local. Nice pool, nice food, nice drinks, and relaxing. During this time of uncertainty due to the pandemic, this getaway was well worth it. We were able to get away from the madness and smile a little. I only wish that we could have stayed another week!!!! Every morning, we took a walk along the peninsula to return to warm coffee and hot chocolate overlooking the marina. Amazing views

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 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!
