We stayed weekend of May 22nd our son's Navy boot-camp graduation. You can NOT beat the price $66/night and so close to the huge Navy complexes. The room was nice, confy, plenty large enough and even continental breakfast. Sold out the weekend we were there so if you have a son or daughter in Navy boot-camp book early. Seriously can't...

Stayed at Navy Lodge for a meeting. This is a great location. The breakfast was more than I expected in a great lobby environment. Different types of rooms allows for more space for the family. Staff was great and the housekeeping department made a very comfortable stay.

My in-laws and I stayed here for my husband's PIR, it was an easy check in, staff was really friendly, the room was spacious, beds were comfortable... Basically, it was a really great place to stay. We heard horror stories from other families staying at other hotels and by far Navy Lodge got the most praises. They even looked for... More

We stayed here because we were attending our grandson's basic training graduation. It's very clean, and there's a shuttle to the base for the graduation ceremony. The staff is the shining star! So friendly and helpful. I highly recommend staying here. Great value.

I was almost satisfied with my stay at the Navy Lodge until someone had to pick me up at 3AM to bring me to the airport for my flight back to California. They didn't allow her to get in the base and told me to walk my way to the gate. I am 56 years old and found myself dragging... More

We visited the Navy Lodge because we were attending PIR and weren't familiar with the area. I expected outdated decor and aged furnishings, but I was pleasantly surprised. The room was updated nicely. The rooms were long and narrow, but the Kitchenette gave my family of four the extra space we needed. The breakfast was basic, but everything was good.... More

This place is very nice. It's clean, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, breakfast was great, and the shuttle to PIR was very affordable and convenient. Since my son is now in the Navy, I hope all Navy Lodges are this nice!

This is where I recommend all families to stay if they are attending the boot camp graduation. There are other hotels in the area, but this is the closest in proximity. if you are not military, you can give them your sailor’s information and they will use that for the check-in information (at least this is what they did for...

Stayed 2 nights for sons boot camp graduation. Very friendly staff. Continental breakfast was good although crowded. The rooms were not fancy, but they were neat, clean and the beds were comfy. I felt safe there. The hotel recommended cabs so we could get around. The location is very close to the base but that's it. You need a car... More
