If you are military, they offer the government rate and it is about 5 minutes or less from the main gate. I was given the side of the hotel to view the sunsets (which I was told was great even though I didn't have the right timing during my short visit to see them). Surprisingly, the hotel is right across the street from the beach so I wish I had brought my swimsuit or jogging clothes as the miles of beach looked great for that. It was also a short distance by car to popular casinos (Beau Rivage, IP Casino, Hard Rock, ...). The room was modern and clean and the bed was comfy.
