Too bad covid-19 has shut down so many of life’s amenities including here at Humphreys but the stay was still as delightful and relaxing as ever. Comfortable Beds, Refreshing pool, and delicious Mai Tai’s and food from the Restaurant!

"Horrible service"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed September 13, 2020 NEW
Checked into my room to hear this ponding noise from a air conditioning outside our room. We bought the Jr suite to celebrate my husbands birthday and to enjoy sitting on the balcony. We immediately called the front desk to switch rooms snd they said none available. We wanted to cancel, but we were passed the time to be able to do that. So disappointed that they ruined my husbands birthday celebration. This is my second and last time i would ever stay here.

"not following Covid guidelines"

Reviewed September 13, 2020 NEW
just stayed there 9/12-- i am highly disappointed and will dispute a portion of their rates. First- restaurant was not even open. reason told was because of covid.. the check in girl- been there two years for very nice. the room was very musty - not sure when the old rug was cleaned.-- under the bed was dirty-- NOT CLEANED is a while. I was there for an anniversary. I did not tell my wife so she would not be more freaked out! the pool was packed-- WE were the only ones using masks-- people we NOT distancing-- at all! NO one with the hotel as doing anything about this. we both left feeling we should get covid tests-- the area where concerts are normally had tables for the walk up dining-- spacing was questionable with tables. I asked many questions when I booked and talked to some. I asked about the pool and other for distancing -etc.. was told they were cleaning rooms extra special and following the state guidelines.. NOT true on the 12th--- THIS HOTEL NEEDS THE CITY TO CHECK ON THEM AND LOOK AT ROOMS- POOL- ETC. SCARY AND DISAPPOINTING

My family and recently spent the night at Humphreys and I am saddened to say that our stay was very disappointing. I heard such great things about this hotel and saw beautiful pictures online so we were very excited to come and stay there. After a three and a half hour drive we arrived and our room was nice except for the fact that one of the lights didn’t work so we had to call the front desk and then had to wait for someone to come in and fix it. Then when we went into the bathroom i noticed the toilet was full of vomit which was absolutely disgusting and made us all feel very uncomfortable considering the pandemic that is currently upon all of us. We had to then call the front desk again and wait for someone to come and clean it up and we were exhausted and wanted to just go to sleep. Unfortunately after that my family and I didn’t feel very comfortable because although the room had a sticker that said it had been sanitized we weren’t too certain about it considering the vomit on the floor. I know I didn’t sleep well and neither did my son. The grounds are beautiful but unfortunately our room put a damper on our experience.

"Horrible And Disappointing, Do not stay here!!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed September 07, 2020 NEW
Just stayed this past Labor Day weekend we checked in on Saturday and stayed through Monday (today) and first thing I had to do was leave a review for this place. Disappointing is an understatement. Check in is at 4 pm called to ask if our Room was ready Muliple times and was told NO that the start of check-in is at 4 ( okay what does that mean?) So you’re telling me 8:00 PM is still acceptable if your check-in starts at four? I have never booked a hotel where I was not able to be in my room at check in time. By 5:30 I was finally in my room first thing I do is put clothes in the dresser and someone’s shorts are in there. so your telling my room was sanitized? ( Nope don’t think so) So I’m giving the hotel the benefit doubt. Then we decide to go get some ice from the vending machine we go and put ice in our ice container and there’s mold all on the inside of the lid. I couldn’t believe this so Gross!!! There was also a big brown spot on our sheet that we found later that night. I would’ve left but at this point we drove all the way from East County and Labor Day weekend all the hotels were all booked so there was no choice but to stay. I gave this hotel one star because the grounds are pretty with all of the tropical trees but that’s all they get.
