Navy Lodge Key West
Reviewed 28 January 2010

We stayed at the Navy Lodge in Key West for 10 days right after Thanksgiving, 2009. It is on a Navy Air Station annex and is only available to armed forces active and retired personnel, plus some civil service personnel. We made our reservations four months in advance. There were RV and camping sites on the base a few block away. I have included some pictures related to my review.

COST- The Navy Lodge is the most expensive of the temporary/vacation on-base options for a single room. The Navy Lodge cost us $89 per night, during this time of year. However, there are no taxes on base which saves about $7 a day. That compares with on-base trailers and the Navy Gateway Inn at roughly $55, per night, at another annex. The Condos a prior report says are $110/ night for three rooms. RV sites cost only $20 per night and many are very near the Navy Lodge. Off base in Key West, we found that the Comfort Inn and Day's Inn cost about $90 per night, plus taxes, during the same off season period.

QUALITY - The Navy Lodge Key West beats all of these particular options in its setting, appearance, privacy, quietness, and quality of its rooms and furnishings. It is like being in a first class resort on a tropical island... which it is! The Sunset Lounge, right nearby, is an appealing aged tropical bar overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. It has excellent food and drinks, at prices about 30% less than prevailing costs in restaurants in Key West. There is no reason to eat dinner anywhere else. Also right nearby, on the base at this location, is a small marina where you can rent a power boat, canoe, or kayak for exploration or fishing. The Navy MWR office is across the street for reduced price tickets to attractions. However, the savings are less than I expected, about 10-15% less than actual deals available off base. The Navy Exchange and Commissary are also about a block away, allowing much more savings on food and drink. The Navy Lodge rooms have small kitchen with dishes, pots, pans, utensils, etc. The Lodge supplies a continental breakfast in a bag, every day. There are coffee makers in the rooms and hot coffee in the lobby.

Location - The Navy Lodge is within 15 minutes or so drive from everywhere in Key West. Parking can be a problem in the more tourist areas and there is primarily pay parking in most areas of interest, which is not cheap. You can park for free in the Truman Annex and at certain places near the beach on Atlantic Ave/St (?) and walk to many locations. Go in the restricted Navy part of the Truman. Look in a large fenced area containing WWII battlements and bunkers. If you are lucky you will see some wild “Navy” goats there. Seeing these white creatures standing guard in the old Navy battlements and bunkers is a special delight. There is also a very nice sandy private Navy beach, with bathrooms, to be enjoyed, at no cost at all. We preferred a state park ($7/Day/Car) bordering on the south of the Truman Annex and connected to it. It has beautiful picnic and camping areas and a great public beach, plus an old fortress! We took picnics with us for lunch every day, in a small foldable cooler. I could go on and on about the sights and entertainment you can find, but the rest is left for you to discover and explore.
