We chose to stay at this property because of its proximity to the Marine station where we would be attending our son's graduation from boot camp. If you're just there to spend as much time with your son as possible, and don't care too much about where you stay, then this is a great place to go. We were greeted very warmly at the front desk and given materials pertinent to boot camp graduation. One could have walked to the station's front gate almost as fast as driving (heavy traffic on graduation mornings). The cost was not bad either.
But that's where the utilitarian goodness stops. The location is pretty miserable: jammed between a very busy highway and a narrow city street in a rather shabby neighborhood. There's this wonderful deck outside the front office where you can sit and look out over the bay, but with all the cars whizzing by less than 25 yards away, it is way too noisy for any comfort. The room was very basic, a couple average comfort double beds. The jacuzzi was comfy and a little shielded from traffic noise, but also looked right out on the parking lot with lots of passers by.
Nothing wrong with the cleanliness or service. It is just a budget hotel for those with business nearby.
