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

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
