Initially, I made reservations for 2 rooms via central reservations (one regular room w/2 single beds and one VIP suite) with understanding that the rooms were on the building by the beach. Boy! was I wrong. All the rooms were in old buildings by the warehouses. The room w/ 2 single bed had no AC, only ceiling fan that did not cool the room down not a bit and the TV did not work. The VIP suite was ok and w/ AC....the buildings are not well maintained. We were welcomed by a big cockroach at the doorway of VIP suite. With a friend's help, I was able to get a DV room after being told that there is AC in the room. Again, another disappointment, to my surprise the DV room did not have AC. What was interesting was that the VIP suite was much better than the DV room, go figure! Needless to say, I ended up with 3 rooms and completely vacated the 2-single beds room, no refund of course. Apparently, the Navy Lodge (building 1401-A) by the beach and the old Navy Lodge (building 1500) are being managed by completely different entities. FYI, Navy Lodge by the beach- (619) 435-0191; Old Navy Lodge buildings- (619) 545-9551. Do not trust the central reservations!
