The worst place i have ever been in. Came in and smelled of mold. Big puddle on floor and the carpet was soaking wet. Ceiling falling apart. Nothing was plugged in. Food left in the fridge. Main housekeeper was rude. She didn't even knock and tried to barge in. If I didn't have the chain up she would have been... More

As soon as I pulled on the parking lot I couldn't believe how nasty it was. The room had fresh paint and linens but other than that it was nasty. Right at the front gate of the base though. I can led my reservation immediately.

Stayed here to attend daughter's Air Force BMT graduation. This is walking distance from the base gate BUT don't think you're just gonna walk in...you do need a car. No Wal-mart close by but there is a Walgreens less than a mile away and Mexican restaurants are just about on every corner. OK, the room WAS much cleaner than the... More

My husband was graduating from the Air Force BMT, and the location was the very best! In pictures online, it looked like it was across a potentially busy street, but I was pleased to find that it was actually a few steps down a sidewalk to the main gates! My room was clean but missing a few things (soap, conditioner,... More
