A very clean and quite place to stay. It has a small workout room and a picnic area in back. Very close to the Naval... More

We stayed at the NL for our son's PIR (graduation) from Navy Boot Camp. The lodge is strictly for military personnel and their families so it very much had that "inclusive, family feeling". The lodge is literally minutes from the Great Lakes Naval Recruit Training Camp and they offer a shuttle to graduation services for only $2 pp round-trip. When... More

We stayed for a graduation at Great Lakes Naval Base. The rooms are spacious and clean. There's a table, four chairs, an arm chair, dresser/tv stand and we had two queen beds. The bathrooms are small but very clean and plenty of towels. There are hair dryers. The free breakfast was limited but sufficient. Oatmeal and toppings, pastries, and yogurt.... More

What a great deal. Super rates for Navy families in town for graduation and practically on base. Rooms are basic but neat and clean and staff is humping to please. Close to all the national chain resturants. They even had a Continental breakfast that had enough snacks and treats for pretty much anyone other than those who need a 1000... More

We stayed weekend of May 22nd our son's Navy boot-camp graduation. You can NOT beat the price $66/night and so close to the huge Navy complexes. The room was nice, confy, plenty large enough and even continental breakfast. Sold out the weekend we were there so if you have a son or daughter in Navy boot-camp book early. Seriously can't...

Stayed at Navy Lodge for a meeting. This is a great location. The breakfast was more than I expected in a great lobby environment. Different types of rooms allows for more space for the family. Staff was great and the housekeeping department made a very comfortable stay.

My in-laws and I stayed here for my husband's PIR, it was an easy check in, staff was really friendly, the room was spacious, beds were comfortable... Basically, it was a really great place to stay. We heard horror stories from other families staying at other hotels and by far Navy Lodge got the most praises. They even looked for... More

We stayed here because we were attending our grandson's basic training graduation. It's very clean, and there's a shuttle to the base for the graduation ceremony. The staff is the shining star! So friendly and helpful. I highly recommend staying here. Great value.
