To begin with the rating is for what the Lodge intends to be and the people it serves. As I'm giving it 5 stars, those 5 stars are just that. This was actually the second time we had stayed at this lodge for the Navy PIR graduation. The first time was 4 years ago. The rooms were super clean, beds... More

We stayed at the Navy Lodge for my son's PIR in July. It was a wonderful experience. It was clean, the staff was friendly, the shuttle driver to PIR was very informative and helpful and to top it off the price was amazing! I would highly recommend the Navy Lodge in Great Lakes, IL.

We couldn't have asked for better accommodations. The staff went above and beyond and treated everyone like family. The room was nice and spacious. We would go back if we needed to stay in this area again.

This was my third visit to a son in the Navy at Great Lakes, but the first time I stayed at Navy Lodge. I will never stay anywhere else again in the area. The convenience to the Navy facilities can't be beat. Rates are very reasonable. The place is attractive, rooms are large, and the staff is very friendly. We... More

We were in town for the Navy graduation. Rooms are very nice and cheap. Breakfast was a little crowded but nice. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone coming to the area for Navy graduation. Room was very clean and well stocked. We stayed on the 3rd floor and the ceiling was vaulted to give an open feeling. This... More

We stayed at the Navy Lodge for my son's PIR. The rooms were very clean. The Navy Lodge has nice, large bathrooms. The breakfast/main area is very nice and has large screen tvs where they livestream PIR for those that can't attend. We were very pleased with our stay. Staff is very friendly also.

We stayed here for a graduation at the Great Lakes Naval Base. Our room was very nice and clean. We had vaulted ceilings, table and chairs. We had 5 people in our room. It was....cozy. 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
