This place is very nice. It's clean, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, breakfast was great, and the shuttle to PIR was very affordable and convenient. Since my son is now in the Navy, I hope all Navy Lodges are this nice!

This is where I recommend all families to stay if they are attending the boot camp graduation. There are other hotels in the area, but this is the closest in proximity. if you are not military, you can give them your sailor’s information and they will use that for the check-in information (at least this is what they did for...

Stayed 2 nights for sons boot camp graduation. Very friendly staff. Continental breakfast was good although crowded. The rooms were not fancy, but they were neat, clean and the beds were comfy. I felt safe there. The hotel recommended cabs so we could get around. The location is very close to the base but that's it. You need a car... More

We stayed two days at the Navy Lodge for my son's PIR ceremony. The rooms were nice and clean. The breakfast was decent. The shuttle to the ceremony was nice. I would recommend taking the shuttle since they know how to get around a lot of the traffic to get onto the base. The shuttles run every 1/2 hour beginning... More

Better than other Navy Lodges I've been to. Rooms were clean, parking was easy, there was a shuttle set up to take family to graduation ceremonies - that was very nice! ! Tons of places that deliver food and or restaurants with 5 miles. There were even geocaches close by. Can't ask for much better.

Having stayed in many different base lodgings, Great Lakes is much better than average. The rooms are a nice size and are quite comfortable. The breakfast was rather good and everything was hot. There was always reasonably fresh coffee available, which is a must. Good stay
