Breakfast that was complimentary was very nice with scrambled eggs or omelettes with sausage, bagels, pancakes, cereals, chobani yogurt, oatmeal, variety of juice and coffee-good selection. The hotel really tries to cater to Navy families with a shuttle service to the graduation and a complimentary...

I checked in on a Sunday afternoon, and they were very helpful about restaurants around the area as I was checking in. There are big signs on breakfast time, so very helpful. I got there right at 6:30, and they were still putting out the food, so it was great timing. The food is varied for the breakfast, but it's...

This is hands down the best hotel for anyone who is going to the Navy Boot Camp Graduation! They offer a free shuttle to and from graduation. The sign up sheet is located at the front counter. It was so easy to just hop on the FREE shuttle after our delicious, free breakfast. The driver was extremely friendly and knowledgeable....

Just got back after staying two nights for PIR 3/10/16. Perfect experience. We stayed in the two bedroom suite which was excellent as we drove up with the sailor's g/f.

The hotel is conveniently located near shops and tons of restaurants. The facility was clean, the staff extremely professional and friendly. We were able to watch the Naval Graduation from the breakfast room - very convenient! The breakfast is over-the-top and there was plenty of it!
