  • Navy Lodge/Civilian Hotel. The Navy Lodge is located approximately one mile from campus. Rooms are available at a rate of $76.00 per night. If BOQ or Navy Lodge is unavailable, it is recommended that the student (and his family) be prepared to stay in a hotel for the first week or so while checking out the housing situation (average cost $75-$145 per night per room depending on location and season). Reservations can be made with RESORT TO ME at (800) 757-5646 or (831) 646-9250. This is an agency that will locate accommodations to fit individual family needs; all that is needed is to call, tell them how many people, preferred area, and preferred price range. (Best bet would be Monterey near NPS [also will be more affordable]. Obviously if you choose to stay (or live) in Pebble Beach or Carmel, prices will be considerably higher). Reservations need to be guaranteed with a credit card.
