The new section is now open (multi-story), and with it some new features. There is now a pool in the center of the courtyard. In addition, breakfast is more than a brown bag with a muffin and yogurt. There is actually a breakfast room, off of the grand lobby, that has toasters with bread & bagels, cereals, fruit, and hard boiled eggs. In short, you can actually cobble together a pretty decent and healthy breakfast. We were assigned to the old section (two-story) of the lodge. Unfortunately, our service was poor. Perhaps there is so much attention on the new section, that the older section gets forgotten. For instance, after being out all day, we returned to our room at 6:15 PM, to discover that room service had not been completed. Our shower had an air lock, causing a loud whining and varying water pressure in use. In the five days we were there, it never got fixed. All-in-all it's still a great place to stay, right on Coronado Beach, and that section of beach is very private and beautiful. Although not perfect, the Navy Lodge is head & shoulders above the other housing option on NASNI, Gateway Inns & Suites. The other place is to be avoided at all costs.
