  • The only thing I would recommend is more lighting in the room.

  • Rooms don’t look like they have been touched since the 70s there was no sound barrier…

    It's fine. What you'd expect for a 2 star hotel.

    It was fine. The hallway had bars on the window, which had me concerned about the neighborhood. But no issues. The room had beem renovated at some point and was clean. It was acceptable. Met my expectations for a 2 star hotel. Staff we encountered were friendly and efficient. I would stay again if price and necessity were there.

    Black mold: Room 106

    The stay wasn't entirely bad. It served the purpose of us having a place to sleep close to the base to see my recruit graduate from boot camp. However, I discovered black mold in my room. Behind the toilet in the bathroom, and on the floor in between the beds under the night stand. They didn't change the sheets that I accidently spilt food on when feeding my 9 month old, but just made the bed with the sheets stained with food. They didn't have a high chair option for an infant for the breakfast area either.The breakfast area also included one single tub of cream cheese for the entire hotel to share.. even in non-covid times that's just gross. Like I previously said, this hotel served it's purpose and the staff was very friendly, but I will not be returning and will not be recommending staying here.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Less then desirable

    Friendly staff but I would not recommend staying here. The room was in disrepair the tub had cracks in it the toilet seat and door handles were loose. The rooms and hallways smelled not very pleasant and the carpet in the hallways had stains all over it. The beds were old uncomfortable and very squeaky. The breakfast was less then desirable.

    Not too bad

    I stayed here because it was fairly close to the Navy base for my daughter's graduation. Getting into the parking lot was difficult and the sign was not as clear to where it was. The staff was very friendly and helped with no problem when I had to get new room keys cause my daughter took mine on base with her...ugh. The beds were comfortable and clean. Definitely need an upgrade to the continental breakfast...it was bare minimum. Overall, it was ok... but I won't go back.
