Why You Should Consider Humphreys Half Moon Inn & Suites

Now that we have some basic details on the hotel, dining and nearby attractions, let me tell you three things that personally stood out to me the most about it during my stays.

The Village Corner in Carlsbad

Location, Location, Location

I know I just mentioned the hotel’s premiere location and nearby attractions above and that is surely one of the top three reasons I think you should consider staying at the hotel.

Much like the nearby Kona Kai Resort & Spa, A Noble House Resort, you can easily stroll to the San Diego Bay for sunset. The central location isn’t far from the San Diego International Airport (SAN) and makes exploring the Downtown area and neighborhoods such as La Jolla for high-end shopping and cafes and Carlsbad for some of the area’s top malls, the The Flower Fields and LEGOLAND California, quick and easy.

And did I mention San Diego’s beautiful beaches? The Pacific Ocean is just a stone’s throw away!

The property is beautifully manicured with a plethora of tropical plants. The entire vibe makes me feel like I’m in a tropical oasis, brings me calm and just feels peaceful.

A Music Lover’s Hotel

While the hotel features flora and fauna to help you feel relaxed, it also has a vibe that can get my energy flowing. And if you’re a music lover like me, then this just could be the perfect hotel for you!

Humphrey’s Half Moon Inn & Suites has rooms that surround the concert venue, Humphrey's Concerts by the Bay, which has hosted performers like Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Bangles, Johnny Cash and hundreds more over the years.
