Summer Vacation

The stay at Humphrys Half Moon Hotel was excellent! The room was very clean. Staff was in each day to neaten up and make the beds. The salt water swimming pool was quite large and very refreshing. Hot tub was also fun. We met many very nice people there. My granddaughter has lots of fun at the pool with the friends she met. All staff were pleasant and very helpful. I would go there again in a heart beat!

Spring break family trip of a lifetime!

Thanks so much for your wonderful hotel. It had everything we needed and then some. And what were the chances that your fitness center had my favorite treadmill that allows me to play solitaire as I walk off that day's calories. Thanks so much for helping us accomplish our Spring break family trip of a lifetime!

Very nice 2 night stay

The hotel grounds and pool were very pretty. The exterior needs a bit of an update. Parking was an issue as we stayed during the summer and the concerts were going on. The junior suite we were in was very roomy and clean. Our room overlooked the concert venue so we had the added benefit of being able to hear the concert. For someone who wanted quiet or to go to bed early it might not be the best choice. There are limited activities and restaurants on Shelter Island and there is always the traffic issues driving into San Diego. The hotel restaurant was very nice and the staff was very friendly. The food was good and was priced like most restaurants in San Diego. All in all we had a nice stay. Not blown away, but a good value for the price.

Awesome Location with great staff!!!

This hotel is awesome, my fiance and I start here often alone or with our daughter. Beautiful landscape. Private beach/bay within walking distance with fire pits. Free bike rentals are great to explore shelter island. I would recommend for anyone. I'd live there if they let me.

Bad.....

Stayed here based on reviews I found on-line compared to other hotels in town. I had to leave my house for several days for contractor work and we decided to do the tourist things locals don't usually do for two days. The hotel charges a "resort" fee which I was aware of, but not of the $14.00 per day charge to park my car. I could not get my computer to log on to the "free" internet, when I walked to the office to ask for help, I was told to call a number and take care of it myself. I finally got loged in and the service is so slow the computer would time out before completing a load of a web site, like there's, so I could check out the parking charge. After complaning again I was offered the "high speed internet" for an addition charge. I decilined and went to Mcdonald's and used their free high- speed internet down the street. After this we started looking around the room and found a list of things wrong. The towel rack falling off the wall in the bathroom, mold in the shower tile, ceiling and paint falling down over the bathtub, torn carpet, dirt and dust you could write in on the chair rails, torn screen on the sliding door. The room is also very small and the chairs are not the most corfortable. The bed and pillows are great though. When I compained about the condition of things the desk clerk waved all the "fees' I had been charged and I just paid the room rate. I would not stay there again and the most I would rate it is 2 out of 5.
