We checked into this lodge on Christmas Eve. The front desk staff was very nice and accommodating. Our room was located on the second floor, but of course, the elevator was out! So we had to carry all of our luggage and bags up steps. The room was very clean and it was actually larger than I thought. I loved... More

This is the place to stay if you have business at the VA clinic or Naval Station around the corner. Nice room, great hotel staff service and very affordable. Cannot beat the price for what you get. The room and facility were clean and comfortable and the nice breakfast added.

This place was amazing. We stayed her for an RTC graduation. The staff was very friendly and so helpful with information and tips for the graduation. The rooms were clean and even came with a microwave and mini fridge. The price was the icing on the cake. I will surely be staying here again.

We stayed here for our son's graduation from RTC on 1/8/16. Everything about our stay was exceptional. They let us check in early on Thursday the 7th and had all the information we'd need about getting around the base and getting to graduation ready for us. On Friday we took the shuttle to PIR and it went off smoothly. Elvin... More

My mother-in-law and I stayed here for my husbands graduation weekend. I ended up staying here until I found an apartment for my husband and I. The front desk staff were very helpful in changing me to a better room once graduation weekend was over. They also recommended jobs for me as I was new to the area and was... More

We stayed for my son's RTC graduation, and were only minutes from the graduation hall. He was able to come back to the room with us because it is close to base. The rooms are clean and very affordable. Breakfast was wonderful - as well as the coffee! There's also a shuttle that will take you to the graduation hall... More

Stayed for my son's PIR Dec 31, and we're very pleased. The front desk agent gave us a map to graduation, and a vehicle pass when we requested one (we didn't print one in advance) upon arrival. The room was comfortable and clean but a tad outdated feeling, but well worth the price! Breakfast is typical NL, with hard boiled... More

We stayed here for my sons boot camp graduation. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were nice and clean. Our room had 2 queen size beds and a small kitchen which was fine for 4 of us. The base is only about 1.5 miles away making for a quick trip to see our son. The rooms are really inexpensive... More

Awesome hotel for graduation - great location, very clean and friendly staff! Would stay again and would recommend. Taxi service was non-existent but Uber was available. Best restaurants are in Lake Bluff - about 10 minutes away. Free shuttle to graduation venue.
