Navy Lodge North Island Naval Air Station
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 April 2017

We have been coming here for about 18 years now and have witnessed all the improvements they have made to the lodge! Not many places that you can stay and walk right out onto the beach in three minutes or less. Since they have built the main addition with many different types of rooms, a pool, splashpad, little kids play area, and a 5th floor deck to view the ocean, Del, or Point Loma this is the shining gem of the Navy Lodges. Breakfast daily, and a very accommodating and knowledgeable front office staff. Note: You cannot check in until 3:00 p.m. You do have to be active, retired military or DoD's employee. Well worth checking out.

Room Tip: The older two story section seems to be quieter, though rooms facing the pool can be noisy.

For the price and location, you cannot beat this Navy Lodge. My family and I have stayed in both the main building (more like a hotel) as well as the cottages on the beach. No matter which you choose, you should be pleased with your stay.

The main building appears to have been updated within the last 5 or so years. The lobby is very clean, bright, and open. Front desk staff are hit and miss as far as being helpful & friendly, but they're not why I'm here. Just outside the main building is a heated pool and a small playground for the kids.

The property is located right next to the airfield, so that could either be a plus or minus depending on how you feel about noise and planes/helicopters. Personally, my family and I love watching the flight activity. At night I don't recall ever being woken up by flights, so perhaps they limit what flies after dark.

The room we had in the main building was large, clean, and had private balcony. It had two beds, a small kitchen & dining area, full size fridge, and cooktop. Basic dishes & utensils were available. Bathroom was clean. Everything was in working order. We did not use the fitness center but the free breakfast is better than other lodges. Oatmeal, cereals, hard boiled eggs, bagels, toast, yogurt, whole fruit, granola bars, juice, and coffee.

The cottages on the beach are what you *really* want if you're lucky enough to book one. Located a short walk beyond the main building, they're right on the sand. Again, they look recently updated/constructed. Very clean, two bedroom units. Full kitchen with utensils. One bedroom has a queen size bed and the other has two twins. All rooms have a flat screen TV. Living room has a sleeper sofa. Washer & dryer in unit as well.

No matter which place you book, you should have a blast and enjoy the pristine beach right there at the property.

This Navy Lodge is their best property! Beautiful ocean views, large rooms with kitchens, heated pool and fun park. The beach is as wide as the eye can see. There are sandollars and glitter sand. Fantastic, low budget, yet luxurious vacation. We've been 3 times now!

Hotel itself was great. You can't go wrong with the price or location. However the staff needs some training. I had reserved a room which I thought was big enough fir 5 people only to be told at check in that it didn't have a pull out couch and we could only have 4 people in the room. No problem except the lady was literally interrogating me instead of trying to find another room. Also my dates were wrong. Check your confirmation closely. Secondly NOWHERE in the lobby or rooms does it give you the gate hours. We came in at a gate along the beach and left only to return and it be closed. This would be helpful to know at check in or have a sign posted in the lobby. Also would it hurt to have some MWR material in lobby and base maps? The customer service of the front desk leaves slot to be desired. Just because it is a military hotel dies not mean you don't have to provide good customer service. The icing on the cake is when a guy asked if there was an oven in a common area they could use and the girl behind the counter never said a word and handed him a pizza delivery menu. If your going to stay fir a vacation print maps and stop by the MWR office first because the Lodge certainly isn't going to provide it.

As far as I can tell there is an old building and a new building. I can't speak for the new building but for as the old, we checked out early. Bugs in the rooms, old bed comforters that real hotels don't use anymore, a bad musty smell in the room, and the bathtub made ridiculous noises. I had to check out after 1 night and stay in downtown San Diego. Not worth a dime, let alone $90.
