Very nice hotel. The room were nice when we got here. Working air conditioner, good television. Everything was pretty good, except the fact that their free internet is very slow. You have to pay 10 dollars for their high-speed internet, but that will only get you the internet for every 24-hour period. Could not get work done. Other than that,... More

Nice stay, Room was nice, staff was friendly. Continental breakfast was nice, they were out of syrup one day. Great rate close to base, you have access to NEX for gas. Only problem is their website says they have a swimming pool, which was confirmed by the person I made the reservation with to my surprise no swimming pool my... More

Got to stay here after bootcamp and several years later to visit the VA hospital. This place will always be my first choice when in the Great Lakes area. The rooms are always perfect and the lobby is always clean. The beds are just right, bathrooms couldn't ask for a better shower. I love the fact that you can actually... More

I was able to stay here twice in the matter of a few weeks. I came up, by myself, to spend Christmas with my son while he was in Boot Camp(my present from my husband last minute). Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. It was hard to be away from family, but the Navy Lodge had a sweet Christmas tree... More

Excellent staff, clean rooms, great atmosphere. Reservations was a snap. I went there for my sons Navy graduation in June. I drove up with part of the family but my daughters plane got in ahead of me on the day we arrived. She had worked the night before so there was no sleep. The staff allowed her to go ahead... More

I booked this hotel with the intention of being able to "hang out" and give my sister some time to relax after completing bootcamp. After the PIR she checked in to A school at Great Lakes and was briefed that she was not allowed to visit or enter the Navy Lodge because it was considered off base housing. If i... More

The RV park is very basic with just electric hook ups and a pit style toilet. There is water and dumps down at the marina with a propane fill site less then a quarter mile away. The park is right on the water so it's beautiful. For $16.00 a night it is well worth the money.

This is not the Ritz but it isn't supposed to be! The Navy Lodge has family style rooms with kitchenettes and basic motel style rooms. We chosethe latter because we thought that families with multiple children would prefer the rooms with kitchenettes. Our room was comfortable and clean and very quiet. The decor was dated but ask me if we... More

Upon arrival, I found friendly check-in staff and the room was spacious and well appointed. Of course the location is great, the price is right, and I really had no complaints with one notable exception. The water pressure from the sink/shower was too low, and when I used the tub, I noticed the water was discolored (rusty/yellowish) with iron particles.... More

This was a surprising nice place to stay. The lobby is large and very comfortable to meet with others to hang out. The rooms are in great shape and it felt like a good hotel. There's a nice convenience store down the street.
