Check in Clerk rude and condescending - I asked to speak with a manager and he advised me he was the manager -- Asked to speak with his boss and he refused - First room was shabby, bed worn out and carpet filthy - They transferred us to another room which had a broken air conditioner - promised to have fixed and never did -- This room was worn with holes in carpet and the shower rod was falling off the wall -- The room door wuld not lock properly and had to be closed over and over to lock -- On Feb 11th was woken up to fire alarms at 3:30 and 6am -- Te next morning there were beds propped up in the parking lot drying from the ceiling sprinklers --

Room Tip: Do Not Stay Here

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

Our party of 4 was placed in a larger room because the hotel knew, without us telling them, that our two new Marines would be joining us after they graduated. The shuttles were pretty close to time and the shuttle drivers told us what to expect once we arrived at MCRD. The breakfast could have had more options (yogurt everyday, eggs, bacon, etc.) and a larger room for the breakfast would have made it more convenient for the guests. The staff was wonderful. We enjoyed the gal in the breakfast room and the front counter staff were friendly and helpful. We loved the fact that we could print our boarding tickets to our flights free of charge. The room was very clean and the staff brought two roll-a-way beds for our Marines to sleep on, without us asking. Our room had a safe that came in very handy for our valuables. It is a simple hotel, but for those traveling with limited resources it was nice. Our beds were very comfortable.
