Hand'nt been here in about five years and was glad that could get a room here for two reasons - a. pleasant place to stay, very reasonable rates, safe, friendly staff, about 12 minute walk to the Metro, and b. there was space available this time when requested a reservation. That was a good sign as priority is appropriately allocated for those with family hospitalized at the medical center and it's good when there are fewer wounded and injured among those serving our nation.
Suggest make reservations as far in advance that you can.
Rooms are spacious and comfortable with a small kitchen - stove, full-size refrigerator, microwave and coffee-maker. Location is very quiet.
Walking distance to the exchange, hospital, service station (whose store has sundry items and snacks, yoghurt, milk, etc). Breakfast includes fresh waffles, boiled eggs, orange juice, fruit, oatmeal, etc. so you will be ready to meet the day. Small PT room with a treadmill, but you can jog around here easily (even saw a deer several times) and enjoy the campus. Free laundry washers and dryers, and it seems trasitional that those checking out leave any unused detergent for others still aboard.
Any criticisms: Rug had an "off" scent, and learned that there will be a renovation soon, so that should be fixed. Also, religous literature in bedside table promoting a rather restricted religous ideology, hardly reflective of our nation's diverse military and the nation at large. Wondered why that private religious organization, not others, gets permission to put religious literature in taxpayer-supported non-church /synagogue /mosque building.
Would definitely come here again if the need arose and am glad the Navy Lodge is here for our Service families.
