I was more than pleased with my stay at the Candlewood Suites in Waukegan. I recently stayed there for my daughters Navy graduation. I really felt at home, which helped to make my short visit with my daughter that much more special! The kitchenette was fully stocked with all the necessities. If I needed anything more, I simply went downstairs... More

We stayed here one night going from Chicago to Milwaukee. Staff was helpful. Rooms were good. Unfortunately our room was not well located. We haven't slept very well. During the night there was a lot of noise from a ventilation or heating system. We mentioned this when we checked out and they thought it could have been the laundry? Price... More

Typical Candlewood, new, comfortable, well run, convenient. I've spent months in long term stays and Candlewood is one of the best. Even great for a couple of days. This one is a little out of the way, but it's next to a new shopping area, so that helps.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was only for 2 nights but the staff were very friendly and helpful and the room very clean. It was in good location to restaurants and to the Naval Base. The only thing was the hallways were way overheated and the heat in the room was funny but really did not bother us.

We came for my brother in law's graduation from Navy bootcamp. There were 14 of us all together, 6 kids and 8 adults. We all loved the rooms and they were able to put us all near eachother. The staff was nice and rooms were amazingly clean. If we end up in the area again, we will stay here.
