We stayed in a single queen room while visiting our son before a deployment. I have stayed in a couple of different military lodges and this one was the most expensive one. Not that it was overly expensive compared to surrounding hotels especially after adding tax. I just thought it was interesting. The young girl at the desk when we checked in was friendly and helpful. Our rooms were nice and clean. It had a small area with a mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot and toaster. There was a very strong smell of air freshner, like the drops you put in an ac/furnace filter when we checked in. The smell faded as the heater ran and it did smell a little musty the second day. We only stayed two days so we skipped the housekeeping and just traded our towels out for fresh ones. Not great water pressure for the shower and as others have said it takes a few mins for the water to heat up, but it did heat up. The bedding was fine, typical hotel style. Never thought I'd say this but the pillows were too fluffy! After trying to sleep with them the first night I was really glad I had my own in the car for the second night. They are pet friendly and I did see some dogs but never heard them during our stay. The breakfast is served early 6-9. It consisted of cold cereals, a few different muffins and danish as well as boiled eggs,instant oatmeals, yogurt,juice, coffee and milk. It was perfectly fine for us. We were on the third floor and didn't have any problems with elevators.The location was very convienient to the base and the NEX which is what we were aiming for.I will say there isn't much to do here recreationally (no pool/ hot tub, game room or lounge area) if that is what you are looking for. All in all we were verry happy with our stay at the Navy Lodge and absolutely would stay again if need be.
