The Navy Lodge in Great Lakes is PERFECT to stay for Navy PIR. The place is a tad dated, but kept up with VERY WELL. The staff was nothing but nice and helpful. We enjoyed every second here. Smokers tend to conjugate at the entrance which is a little annoying for we non-smokers. The breakfast was great, filling and opens... More

We stayed for our son's graduation from BC. Our room was very average and outdated. Beds & pillows were comfortable. Rooms & beds appeared clean but found hair in the sink & on the toilet. Housekeeping missed our room one day and when I called to ask about it, was told ‘they’ would come around; ‘they’ never did. Counter space... More

The Navy Lodge was great! The staff was very helpful for the newcomers to the area, and to the Navy. Very informative, with maps, and directions. The room was comfortable, great value for the price. Great Location! If I happen to be in the area again, I will definitely use them again, or recommend to others. Thank you Navy Lodge!

stayed here as a road trip stop and it was a brilliant idea! Definitely get a room with the mini kitchen... so worth it...they even provide plates, pots and pans etc. Staff was awesome! It's a bit of a walk with bulky luggage cart but no big deal. Very close to the base! Very reasonable price!

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...

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
