Where to stay in Yokosuka

The city of Yokosuka has a decent set of accommodations close to its waterfront and naval bases. Primarily built with businesspeople, rather than international tourists, in mind, they tend to be fairly one-tone. Look along the waterfront going west from the main train station to see most of what's on offer, with the emphasis almost exclusively on modern business-style hotels with comfortable rooms, pools, and onsite restaurants.
