Nice newer hotel. Room was very nice, a little small but normal for newer hotels. Service was great and breakfast was good with eggs, sausage and stuff to make them into sandwiches. Hotel and room were clean and modern

Nice newer hotel. The room was clean but had cigarette burns in the carpet, which wasn't a problem since it was a smoking room. Room was very nice, a little small but normal for newer hotels. Service was great and breakfast was good with eggs and sausage.

I'd agree with the other reviewer that said "This is a place to sleep." It felt safe and clean. But I can't give it much more than that. The drapes, bedspread and carpet are right out of the late 1980s- tragic.

Although a bit run down and needa bit of a face lift, was a good sleep. Nothing over the top, but a comfortable bed, very large room (much larger than Days Inn), relaxing shower capsule (no bath tub). Very adequate for a place to sleep.

Where do I start? Most of the lights don't work at all. One being in the bathroom, not convenient. Another in the main room. The pocket door for the bathroom is off track, very difficult to open/close, and had no lock. The shower had no shower head so the water pressure was comparable to mist. The room door is also...

This Sleep Inn has a nice easy to find location and is close to Great Lakes Naval Training Center. It seemed average in almost all respects except hat it was very quiet the night I was there making for a good restful, relaxing night. The staff I came into contact with were ok and did their job. The unit seems... More

The rooms were clean. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The free breakfast was better than most. The shuttle to navy graduation worked out great. Really great deal for the money. Oh, loved the shower!

The hotel is very close to the base and the staff is very friendly . However, the rooms are just ok-they are pretty small. The sheets also had stains on them. My biggest complaint was the wi fi service--it was horrible. There are lots of hotels in the area that may be a lot nicer for just a little more... More

Ten minute drive from base. Room was small but clean and comfortable. Reasonably priced. Call actual hotel to book. I saved a $100 by doing this. If renting a car enterpirse is within a five minute walking distance to pick up car. They offer a shuttle service for the day of graduation- $6 roundtrip. Juan with Elite Taxi Services works...

This was fine for the graduation, it was close to the naval base so it was a quick drive. The room was clean, but no locks on the bathroom doors...kind of uncomfortable because we were staying with family and friends.
