It is quiet, good location, good view, nice TVs, friendly front desk .... We booked the king bed with pull out sofa bed. I slept in the sofa bed. After I showered, put on clean pajamas, got into the bed, then found out the sheet is covered with sand and dirt. See the photo attached. Other than that, the reception... More

I was in San Diego for a convention and discovered that Jimmy Buffett was playing this venue while I was in town. I'm a big JB fan (they call us Parrotheads) and he won't tour forever, so I grabbed a couple of tickets from Vivid, which is a ticket broker. Concert day was filled with surprises, some good and some... More

The grounds and facility are attractive, however, we dealt with one problem after another with our room. The first night was loud music until 10:30 p.m. and again on two additional nights. So don't plan on turning in early. Our TV didn't work so they replaced it with one that didn't work and said that was all they had. The... More

This has to be one of the best Hotels in all of San Diego County bar none. Simply 5 stars for the incredible venue, for the incredible sound and the homey ambiance of the concerts performed at this Hotel. A huge cudo for the Staff and especially for Salina Hernandez who went totally out of her way to make sure... More

If you are a concert lover, you owe it to yourself to find a band you like and see them at Humphrey's. Literally the big names play there. Small and intimate.

My business partner and I usually visit our west coast home office every fall. After a productive day of business, we hit Humprheys for the Huey Lewis concert. My partner has worked with me for 21 years and it was her birthday. And 80's girl that she is, she's always loved him and the band. Small venue-- no need for... More

On vacation from UK staying in hotel down the road. Saw that Yes we're doing a concert and went to box office a few hours before concert. We're very lucky and got good tickets. Last saw Yes at Wembley nearly 40 years ago. They are still brilliant although I didn't recognise one song. The original member of the band on... More

A group of 10 went to see the cover bands Led Zeppelin II and Pink Floyd Australia. We conveniently bought the dinner package, so had an easy walk to the concert seating. We had good seats (some in the front row center, a few others in second row center). The seats are very tight in spacing, but everyone was friendly,... More

Open seating (or rather, standing) venue at ta recent concert. Evidently they do this every so often - no chairs, standing only. You can sit, stand, lie down, whatever. It's the middle of summer, great San Diego weather, totally casual venue, so it works really well. An absolutely gorgeous venue with a harbor backdrop... you can't beat it for scenery.... More
