This place was great! We stayed here because our recruit was graduating. They had a shuttle to take you there in the morning but we didn't opt in for that. They also serve breakfast in the morning. Will be staying here again if we ever visit again.

Our bathroom didn’t seem to have been cleaned. Long black hairs on folded towels on rack & soap residue on shower shelf :( Staff wasn’t overly friendly and seemed bothered when we asked for more towels and WiFi access. Shuttle to PIR and back was nice but it’s also $3 per person each way - cash only and no AC in the van so it was a miserable ride. Definitely a no frills hotel and way overpriced.

Who runs a 2 story hotel in 2019 that doesn’t have a freaking elevator?! I am disabled, even made a point of telling them that upon my reservation, and was still put on the second floor. Normally there wouldn’t have been an issue, but no elevator!? Made my stay very difficult! Also, we requested a roll away bed for our Sailor and was told none were available but we could have a room with 2 queen beds for our 5 day stay. Nothing was said about additional charges. When we got home to NY I see we were charged an additional $147 on top of our already paid $348!! What a way to do business!?
