Website: Navy Lodge Norfolk reservations and information
You can make the reservation yourself by providing both your name and the name, rate and rating of the sailor who will check you in (called your "sponsor.") If you are there for a homecoming, you can check in without your sponsor, but he/she has to check you in within 24 hours. Otherwise your sailor must be present at check-in and show military ID.

On a recent stay at Navy Lodge Norfolk I took these photos for us. It's quite close to Gate 5 that leads into the base, so it's close to the ships and piers. You need photo ID and a sponsor with military ID to enter the base, except for homecomings and your Ombudsman will have that info.

Just spent Thanksgiving week/weekend at the Lord right outside Norfolk NAS. They were great - again! Using a Nesco to cook the turkey, we were able to fix a "traditional" dinner. We got adjoining rooms and it was perfect!
I had to google Nesco LOL How cool, I bet that was a great Thanksgiving celebration!
LOL...Marcy, I've had a Nesco for years...much better then the "normal" crock pot as it has a much further range of temperatures and even functions as an oven! It was pretty awesome and my daughter got to keep left overs to eat for a few days after we left!
And I just realized my post should have said the Lodge right outside the base...lol!
haha dang that auto-correct! I knew what you meant; it gave me a chuckle!! :)
