The sleep in was a wonderful hotel! We had a great time. They were thoughtful enough and accommodating for all the Navy graduates. It was conveniently located to the naval base, and the hotel was clean and well mainatained.

We came here for our son's Navy Graduation and I have to say the friendly staff went beyond our expectations. The hotel was clean and very close to the Naval base. The staff was very friendly and not only took good care of us but also took care of a package we had sent ahead of us. Andy was fabulous! So personable and he takes pride in what he does. The gentleman who shuttles folks to the base and airport was also outstanding! You are in good hands staying here! We were also very pleasantly surprised with the light reception they had for the graduates and family's after graduation. What a nice touch!

While this is not a newer property and it does need some TLC, they make up for it and having good staff and communication. We stayed three nights and our daughter-in-law stayed two nights. We used the shuttle to and from Boot Camp graduation and it was good. We did run into one problem but it was taken care of by management. Like I said, good communication. Breakfast was average for choice hotels.

The staff at this hotel were not only accommodating to the military families needs but they were also very knowledgeable about the transportation process to the boot camp graduation & about the families visit to the airport to see the new sailors off at the airport afterwards. With the stormy weather expected to be in full swing by early Saturday morning, we asked Anthony about available alternatives for transportation to see our son off at the airport. He not only provided us information on the taxi/shuttle services but also shared his knowledge about the airports in the area proximity from our hotel and what info we needed to make sure we had from our son to make sure we went to the correct airport at the right time. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff were also really polite. I really liked that they provided cake for celebrating our new sailors after the graduation. Anthony was very understanding and worked with us when we had to check out earlier than our planned stay. Thank you Sleep Inn!

Room Tip: Close proximity to US Navy Recruit command center and to Walmart.

Based on the partly dated Hotel itself it would most likely be rated a 3 but the attention to details and the extremely friendly and helpful staff make up for the plain accommodations and then some. In this case I was looking for an inexpensive hotel near the NAVY base for the Graduation this Hotel was a first choice because it was very close and the rates while not very "cheap" were still less than some in the area. But what surprised me when I arrived was the excellent staff that did everything in their power to9 be helpful and make my stay as pleasant as possible. They have ready made information packets with Navy Graduation information about times and directions as well as local shopping centers and restaurants. The staff make the difference at this Hotel.
