I was stuck in San Diego for schools before moving onto Japan and had to stay here due to having my wife and dog with me. The hotel is old looking and doesn't have any views. It's right next to the shipyard and railroad tracks. Noisy! Rooms are large but the kitchenette is way to small and crammed. Bathroom is... More

We stayed at this hotel for one of the three nights we stayed at San Diego. The other two nights we stayed at Navy Lodge North Island. Overall, North Island blew this place out of the water for only $10 more... On the bright side, it is in a very good location, right next to downtown and the rooms were... More

Very clean hotel, and convenient location. The check-in was quick. The parking lot is often full, but there is more parking just to the north of the building. The continental breakfast was fine. Locating the hotel was tough at night as the entrance onto the base to get into it is not obvious. You enter the base off South 28th... More

Staying here for 5 weeks while taking a class on base. Room is a little on the smaller side but it does have a mini fridge and a microwave. It's clean and does the job. Unfortunately though, I didn't sleep well most nights due to the amount of horns and bells blasting from the shipyard and train that are within... More

Be sure you know this is Navy Lodge San Diego and not one of the other Navy housings in the area. This is Bldg. 3526 at Gate 15, near 28th St and Main. It is clean, quiet, safe and a continental breakfast included. There is a gas station across the street and a train stop outside the gate and 100... More

Great rate for heart of San Diego, convenient to everything plus all the amenities of a major military installation. Very credible free breakfast. Comfortable room with flat screen TV. Clean and safe.

Wasn't just a bed sink and shower, it opened to a bed then a sitting area with a... More

Price and location are high points of this facility. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The wifi cost $7.95 a day. Breakfasr is included and is solid. The rooks and furnishings are getting a little dated. The room I was in had a fridge and microwave.

Can't say enough positive things about this place! This is the first lodge we have stayed at that actually had a decent breakfast: hard boiled eggs, cereal, muffins, pastries, milk, juice, yogurt, coffee, & tea!! Really enjoyed that...its nothing fancy but can make a meal and there were protein options! The location cannot be beat. I timed it from the... More
