“Best in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Firstly, Oreoqueeen is lying. This hotel is clean as a whistle, the grounds are beautiful, the service is top-notch and friendly. Staff is friendly and responsive, and eager to please.

Rooms are more like one-room, fully furnished, apartments. Pots and pans, full table service for four, even a dishwasher with detergent provided.

The lobby is spacious and very tastefully arranged. The breakfast spread is plentiful and generous, and great care is taken with presentation. Coffee is on all day, as well.

There are two options for wireless Internet -- free access, or a higher-bandwidth paid option -- by the hour, the day, or the month.

A well-equipped and modern playground is right outside the door, as well as two small ponds with picnic tables nearby, visited frequently by white terns.

Not only is this the most comfortable room I've ever stayed in -- bar none --, the base has tons of activities at little or no cost, and there is a wealth of interesting sites within a very short drive of the base.

We take great pride in serving our military families. Everyone from Gulfport Lodge appreciates you noticing how hard they work to insure each and every guest gets the best service possible. It is the least we could do for all that you do.

For $70 per night the expectation was for more than just new towels and the trash to be out. It got to a point to where I was cleaning the room myself. So what am I really paying for? The room had roaches that it wasnt until after almost 20days of my 29 day stay that someone was sent to spray. Stopped using the refridgerator because they were in it also... I do not know how it is in the newly built building but the single story rooms have been forgotten and I dont remember it ever being this disgusting and unsanitary!

Communicating with the front desk staff while nice and coordial the actual cleaning staff did not understand some of us dont live like this! I am on orders and was required to stay on base. I hope to never have to return... I even took pictures of the critters running rampart in the cuppards I would if I could upload the pictures...

I don't know where to start. The landscaping is beautiful. The lobby is breathtaking. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Free Internet and great breakfast spread every morning. The rooms(2 story building) are brand new, spacious and very modern equipped with a fully functional kitchen. The decor is all high end. This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in and the savings put the competition to shame. I will be back at the Navy Lodge Gulfport when in the area!

We try to use military lodging facilities whenever we travel. Some look like converted barracks and are ok for the price. This one, however, was lovely in every way. We stayed in the older, or original section of the Navy Lodge (as opposed to the Navy Gateway Inn or the almost completed new Navy Lodge). The new building had not yet opened, but I can't imagine it being any nicer than the original one. This is one of the few lodging facilities that did not have a military look. It was large, updated, decorated and stocked like any nice civilian hotel room or efficiency apartment. Each unit was ground floor with a front door and back sliding patio door. Our unit was not designated as accessible, but had no front door sill which made it very easy to bring in rolling luggage. I noticed some of the units had concrete ramps, and some had a sill. Parking was directly in front of the unit. The back door exited to a small semi-private patio and a large communal grassy backyard enclosed by privacy fence. There were picnic tables and one bouncy child's "ride" in the back. Kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, glasses, dishes and utensils. It had an almost full sized refrigerator, a two burner smooth top cooktop, toaster, microwave etc. Area faced civilian housing outside the fence and, although we heard dogs barking during the day, there was no noise at night. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Unit was clean, quiet and comfortable. Linens were fresh and soft. Beds comfortable to us. Flat screen TV, large bathroom (zero entry shower with fold up shower seat and hand-held shower head in this unit), good lighting with motion detector night light in bathroom. The section of units we were in had a laundry room and vending machines as the center unit. This base had some of the tightest security we have seen: even with ID, we had to produce drivers licenses, vehicle registration and proof of insurance before being issued a temporary base pass. We arrived on a Saturday, and the base was very quiet although there is a fair amount of housing. Gas station, NEX and commissary are all within a block of the Lodge. The Pass Rd. gate was no more than 5-10 minutes from the beach front in Gulfport. The only negative is that WiFi is not free ($7.95/day). I would definitely stay here again and wish all lodging facilities were as nice as this one!
