Fodor's Review

This sprawling South Seas–style resort has grassy open areas with palms and tiki torches; many of the rooms have water views. Oversize plantation shutters, wooden bed frames, plush bedding, and a subtle natural-color scheme lend the nicely furnished rooms a tropical vibe. Some rooms have balconies, sleeper sofas, and kitchens; the Grand Marina Suites can accommodate up to eight people in 1,000 square feet with full kitchens. Locals throng to Humphreys for the brunch, the live music lounge, and the outdoor concerts from April through October.

Great Musical Escape

A ton of money has indeed been spent on this property, and it makes for a great weekend escape, especially during summer for the combined vacation, entertainment experience. The best deals are the concert, dinner, and room packages. Each summer period, from April to October, Humphreys hosts some of the most amazing outdoor, under the stars, concerts, from Devo to Tony Bennett. Mostly classic rock and folk, but fairly eclectic in entertainment.

The completely remodeled rooms are delightful: big flat screen t.v.s, comfy beds, tons of amenities, and usually a great view of either the harbor or the lush grounds. Also wonderful bike riding paths along the harbor. The dinner that is part of the package is surprisingly good, with gratuity included. It may not be best during the concert series period to stay if the plan is to go to sleep early and not to attend the concert, because, as stated above, it is an outdoor venue, and the sound of music does travel.

Not worth looking at!

This hotel is not worth looking at! We booked on the internet and looked at three different rooms when we arrived before leaving to find another hotel. It is old, dark, worn and way too expensive for what you get. The grounds are nice but the buildings need a major overhaul.
