1) I know it sounds cliche, but I'm telling you the high quality of this place's people is its strength. I had the pleasure of interacting with the man who runs the place at night, his replacement the following morning, and their shuttle driver. Because of my late arrival and early departure, these 3 were the only employees I encountered....

It's fine for what it is and for what we paid, which was about $60/night. It's not fancy by any means - it's older and outdated but if you need an inexpensive place to stay for Navy graduation that's close to the Base (and has a shuttle that will take you there) this was fine. The employees were really nice,...

This is not a safe hotel. The back door didn't lock so anybody could walk right in. The staff was never out at the front desk unless you rang the bell so anybody could have come in through the front door as well. The pool that is advertised is not in working order, it was behind closed locked doors.The towels...

Dear Debbie, We are sorry to hear about your experience at our hotel. We do not advertise a pool as we do not have one. Also, there are cameras through out the property and in the parking lots for security purpose, also, we have never had any guests' safety issues. As for the room bathroom, please give us a call...

You can't beat the price and people. It's not the Ritz, but for what you pay, it's awesome. There is a shuttle that takes you to and from graduation, a fridge in the room, continental breakfast - really can't beat it.

WORST HOTEL EVER!! There were stains on bedspread and carpet. Carpet was old and worn. Room smelled horrible. Commode overflowed and my son was given a plunger to fix it himself. Tried to cancel last night on reservation due to son leaving early for A school and the man at the desk said he could not help me. When asked...

If you're looking for a safe well maintained place to stay....this is not it. General maintenance greatly needed. Hallway entrance door lock was broken so anyone off the street could enter. The frig was off on my arrival & smelly - didn't work when turned on. Staff said they would bring "new" frig...they actually brought frig from another room (I...

Great price for what it is. Convenient to base. Don't read the reviews and get discouraged, remember it's not a Ritz Carlton, it's a budget friendly hotel. Room was clean, staff was kind and AC worked what more do you need? Only suggestion would be get better coffee!

Most of the reviews are pretty close to actual condition. Please look at the room before you sign or negotiate a price that you are comfotable. I did see another room in better condition than mine that someone else in our party had. My room was pretty bad. I left the next night aand spent the extra $100 for a...

Dirty and in serious need of updates and repairs. Local town is a dump as well. So disappointing as we were in for my son's Navy graduation. Moved to a much better hotel at a higher price! You get what you pay for!
