The staff of the Navy Lodge NASNI out did themselves. From Anthony at check in to the coordinator of the weekly Manager's Welcome "Hot Dog" get together for guests, held in the lobby. I had made a reservation, but forgot to request a upper floor overlooking the ocean as recommended. If available upon registration, such a request would be granted. While Anthony was unable to give me an ocean view, the top floor on the corner room gave a view of a portion of the ocean and all of the NASNI airfield. Great room, clean and organized to maximize the room space. Microwave oven, refrigerator, and coffee maker in the room. With the balcony sliding door closed, no aircraft noise heard. Staff are cleaning every day in the lobby. Beach tables overlooking the ocean. Pool for kids mainly, with a automatic water buckets dumping device. Appreciated the well mannered kids at play, and there were a lot of them, LOL.
Secret is to make your request for a particular room at reservation, and check in at 1500 for your best opportunity at getting your requested room, top floor overlooking the ocean. Don't forget to visit the "Garden Terrace" on the roof with its 360 degree view, till 2200. Drinks allowed, but no glass bottles or glasses.
