We went to my brother's graduation in Great Lakes and the experience was very good. The bed was very comfy,the room was very spacious. The breakfast was very good. The price was the best. Highly recommended. They provided transportation to the Navy Base for the graduation.

We have stayed several times at the Navy Lodge. Some rooms have separated bedrooms and a kitchen area. Rooms have always been clean and well maintained, and friendly service. Includes breakfast. Easy commute to Chicago for sightseeing and Great America and Gurnee Mills Mall.

Very clean! Very comfy bed and pillows! We stayed here on July 4th and 5th. July 4th night, the room next to us was very loud and had a barking dog, we didn't get to sleep til almost 1am!

It was clean, affordable, safe and in a good location. You will not find a better hotel near the base. If I was in the area I would stay there again. The only thing I didn't care for was the bathroom, we were put in a room with a handicap bathroom and the seat in the shower made it a...

Very nice hotel and you can't beat the price. Was close to the Navy graduation and the Metra train to Chicago. Had no problem getting to the base from this location. The staff were all very friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

The rooms are clean and very nice as they are family friendly. It was quiet and the breakfast was filling with good choices for a great start to the day. I would stay here anytime; the down side is that due to weekly graduations lodging is hard to come by esp. on a Friday evening. I wish we could stay...

As soon as we found out the date of our son's graduation we immediately booked our rooms at the Navy Lodge! This is our second stay here. Not much has changed since our last visit 12 years ago. We found the rooms to be very comfortable, clean and spacious. They are a little dated and could use a little remodeling,...
