“Military Millionaire Dollar Property”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

My goodness! This is a military goldmine...if they only knew! This building is on a tiny section of a military base on the silver strand. It just south of the center of Coronado...In all the 30 years we have been going to NAS guest house, we never knew this little secret existed. Perhaps because the Guesthouse (which is stunning in everyday) was fully booked, they referred us to this place.

This tall building has unobstructed views of the ocean, if you happen to get ocean side. It feels more like old barracks or a hospital...but after searching for a hotel somewhere in San Diego for less than $150 a night...this was a steal. At around $50 a night, we felt this was fine for our purposes. Ok, so the hotel is stuck in the "Miami Blues" of the 80's, but who cares when you have a 180 degree view of the Pacific? AND you're paying only 50 bucks a night?

The only catch in using this secret find is that you have to be military. Sorry! This could solve some of their budget problems if they redecorated them and sold them as condos!

Room Tip: ask for west side facing the ocean. Not large enough for a family. Very tiny rooms, but perfect fo...

This property is very convenient for those wanting to access the Navy facility on Coronado Island but is less so for getting around San Diego proper. The room was spacious with livingroom, kitchen and bedroom/bath. Enough kitchen utensils were provided to fix a meal or two. The Keurig coffee maker wouldn't be my "first choice" for making the morning brew...provided brand was too weak. The room heating was less than efficient. The bathroom would get a "gig" for the dirty ventilation fan. The price was okay but we also stayed in a "regular" hotel near the airport which was a few dollars more but provided ready access to surrounding town, airport and beach activities, breakfast and a newspaper.
