“Friendly service. Clean rooms. COMFY beds.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

We have stayed here twice, both long term stays, and we have been pleased! The first stay was in a new building, very clean and comfortable. The second stay was in the historic building. That suite was nice, clean, and comfortable. The service has been great, friendly house keeping and front desk. I read someone's review who stated otherwise, possibly it was because you weren't friendly? They've been very friendly and understanding when we needed them. P.S. all rooms have large LCD RVs with premium sound bar and sub woofer! Always a plus for hooking up the PS3.

We've stayed several times and it's a great value.

The historical main bldg is our favorite ....except for the lack of elevator! But the stairs are great exercise!

The kitchens are so convenient & help is save money by eating bfast in our room. The free laundry facilities are great too!

Our only complaint has been of dirty carpets once or twice but this past time it was way better and not a deal breaker.

You can stay here & use the beach on base or take a quick drive of 15-20 mins to get over to Pensacola Beach & the aqua water! The drive is a tiny sacrifice if you consider you pay $66 a night for a 1bedroom kitchenette suite vs $350 nightly for a plain hotel room at the beach.

This is on base at Naval Air Station Pensacola, you will need military access to get on base. For military/DOD only.
First of all, I am a big Navy Gateway fan no matter where the location. I have stayed at several of them and I think they offer the best value for the dollar.
The Navy gateway Inn Pensacola is an excellent choice. They have two room suites which say can only hold 4, but we brought along a cot so we can fit in 5. They have a bedroom with a nice queen size bed and flat screen tv. In the main room when you first walk in there is a full size sleeper sofa coach, and another 32” flat screen tv. It is a good quality mattress so it will be comfortable for the kids. There is a full size refrigerator, and kitchen area to cook in if needed. They have the basic pots, pans, plates, cups, and other kitchen items. They only downside is that you are in barracks-like building, which at night looks like all the other buildings around there. So it is easy to kind of get a little lost if you’re not paying attention. Overall, the rooms are real clean, including the linen and towels. The staff takes good care of this place. Each room has a coffee maker in them.
I almost forgot to mention, there is a washer and dryer in the room! They all have one and are great for when you come back from the beach with all your wet clothes. The normal cost for these rooms is about $56 dollars a night. And, the barracks have free Wi-Fi.
Right outside the front gate is a Walmart and some other fast food places. Taco Bell and Wendys have been slow everytime we went there. There is a Sonnys BBQ and Firehouse subs that we liked a lot. They were much better run and probably the better choice.
So, what’s to do there?
**Every Tuesday and Wednesdays at 0830-0930, the Blue Angels put on a free demonstration. You need to go down by the Aviation Museum, once there they direct you to park in the back by the air field.
**The lighthouse. The lighthouse is located across from the Aviation museum, its $5 for adults and $3 for kids. The lighthouse is 150 years old and will kill about an hour. It’s worth going up all 177 steps and then taking in the awesome view. Myth-busters TV show did a special from here, the lighthouse is supposed to be haunted. For the record, I didn’t see any ghost…but I did feel something brush up against me a few times….
**The Naval Aviation Museum. FREE, right there on base. This is a first class operation all the way. There are a few buildings there that house all the history of Naval Aviation. There is a lot of interactive stuff for kids, and adults will love it. You can easily spend all day there. A MUST SEE, its free! Open 9-5 daily.
**the base marina MWR. They rent pontoons, kayaks, fishing gear, a whole bunch of stuff. And there at least two locations that rent the stuff so you might want to call ahead to find out more. We rented the pontoon all day for 131 dollars, that included gas.
**Pensacola Beach. It’s about a 20-25 minute drive from the Gateway Inn.
The base has the usual gas station, mini marts, food courts, golf course, gym, pool. There is an indoor and outdoor pool, the kids did like using it.
In the morning my wife and I would walk about 4 blocks over the Starbucks and grab a coffee. Right across from Starbucks, cross the main road and you’re at the sea wall on base. There are a lot of historic markers with the history of the base dating back to the early 1900’s. It’s long too, a mile or so in each direction. It’s very scenic here and a great place to just take in the beauty of it all.
If you’re looking for Seafood, there was a real good place we found called Nicks. It on Barrancas Ave. which is one of the main roads once you get off base heading to downtown. We are not fish eaters but the restaurant was clean, well-organized, and had good prices. The kids ate from the kids menu, my wife and I had the mahi mahi, which was excellent. The total bill for all five of us was $59. Nicks is right on the water and there is a minor league park right next to it. There was a game going on and it had a real nice, fun atmosphere. You can dine inside out outside.
There are two other places you can stay on base, the Navy Lodge or the Oaks cabins. The Navy Lodge is ok, it’s a one room, two queen bed room. There is also a place called Oak Grove Park Cabins at NAS Pensacola. I will post my write up about staying there.
Give me a thumbs up if you think this was useful.

Room Tip: When you make reservations, ask for the buildings that have the washer and dryers inside the rooms...
