We have had the pleasure of staying at NL GL on two different occasions this summer. Once for my son's PIR in July and again for a weekend visit as he is in "A" school here. Awesome staff, pretty good breakfast, clean, comfy beds, and quiet....convenience factor can't be beat - just a few minutes from Base Gates...will say though... More

Check in was confusing as we arrived and were told they did not have a reservation, then we were given the directions to check the "Gateway Inn" on base. Our reservation showed we were arriving a day later, not sure how the error occurred, could have been my fault. After feeling like we were about to end up with no... More

Confusion when we first arrived as there is a "Navy Lodge" we went to and then there is the one at the address provided above that is also on the base. The confusion made checking in a challenge, but after we were beginning to think we did not have a place for the first night everything began to work out.... More

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

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
