We took showers without one and used our paper thin towels provided. 3 ice machines on the premises NOT ONE WORKED! The a/c... More

Very busy area of Great Lakes, IL.Stayed here for daughter's graduation fromNAvy basic training. Outside needs some attention. The rooms look like they are being upgraded. The carpet was new, with new tile in the vanity and bathroom area. The furniture was in really good condition. The curtains need replaced. For such a busy intersection of Buckley and US 41,... More

So.. the navy recommended this hotel for the Naval Bootcamp gradation because of its close proximity to the base. That's where the positive attributes of this hotel start and stop. I pulled into the parking lot and immediately wanted to leave. But it was just for a couple days, how bad could it be? Well.. we didn't have hot water... More

Where do I even begin. The place is dilapidated. Literally looks like a bomb went off there. Hotel is nasty, dirty and a total armpit. Pulled in to see a pimp yelling at one of his girls in the parking lot. This is basically a 4 hour nap motel with sketchy people all over the place. Room was dank, and... More

The only positive thing I can say, is that it is close. The nonsmoking room had cigarette burns and stains in the bed sheets. The Walkways are littered with trip hazards and garbage. There was writing on the bathroom walls and the walls are paper thin. When asked to have the problems fixed desk personnel were polite in offering assistance... More
