Can anyone offer some suggestions on where to stay during navy boot camp graduation ?
I would like to stay at the nearest hotel/inn to where the graduation will take place.
My friend is suggesting Navy Gateway Inn & Suites.
Any info on this place ? Or anywhere else closest to the graduation, with a fair, reasonable price?
You can't stay at the Gateway but can stay at the Navy Lodge, which would be my suggestion.
Do you have a DOD issued ID card? You must be a DOD employee, active duty, reservist, or retired military to reserve a room there. Unlike the Navy Lodge, where you can make the reservation in your sailor's name, you have to be eligible yourself to make the Gateway reservation.
The Gateway Inn is on the base, and you can't get on without a pass.
