Spent the weekend of Sept 15th to Sept 18th at this Best Western as part of a travel package. We were in town to celebrate our Son-in-Law's promotion to Chief in the US Navy. We found the hotel to be the perfect distance to the base with the Little Creek entrance being just down the road. After a hellacious trip from the West Coast we arrived tired, grumpy and hungry and were greated by the friendliest, most helpful desk person. I wish I had gotten her name! We asked if there was anywhere to grab a bite and she said there were quite a few fast food places just down the road. "No sit down and have dinner places?", we whined??? As a young man continued our check in she was on the phone and when we finished up she told us she had just checked a local rib place for us and that they were still open and would wait for us!!!!!! Mojo Bones!!! A local Blues and Ribs bar, pretty empty but open and great food! A tricky local conned us out of a beer as three local guys entertained us from stage with some blues! Nothing better than a fun little out of the way local place to set the tone for the stay! Thanks desk staff for making our trip in feel like fun for the first time all day! The room was spotless, ocean front, and okay the little kitchen area a bit out of the 80's. Amazing view of the coast, just what we wanted. The desk said we could have our granddaughter's little birthday party out by the pool if we wanted!! Seriously, how much more friendly and helpful could that be??!!!! Yes, there was some distance from "the mall and chain restaurants. GOOD! Loved the view and the gracious staff! Wish the weather had cooperated for a walk on the beach but it galed all weekend! These desert dwellers loved being able to see the water again! Was it 5 star? No, but the staff made a 3 star into a 4 star! The staff and the ocean were the stars of this show!
