We booked two rooms for our son's graduation from Navy boot camp. The rooms were awesome. The staff was excellent and very helpful! Great location if you are visiting anyone at the Navy base in Great Lakes, Il. It was just a few miles from the base--so really easy to get our son to and from the base.

Booked the hotel for two nights. We were greeted at the desk by a line of about three people checking in at the same time. The attendant at the counter was very apologetic and was hurrying as fast as she could. The room was by far the cheapest of the hotels close by. We checked in to our room, very... More

My first stay at a Candlewood and my experience here in Waukegan will make me try them again. Clean room, friendly people, and good price. A suite was nice, small kitchen area in room allows prep of simple meals.

Just returned from a 3-night stay @ Candlewood Suites in their 1-bedroom suite. Excellent accommodations: roomy, updated, quiet, good amenities. Customer service was excellent: friendly and helpful. Hotel is in close proximity to several restaurants and stores. When in the area, we will stay there again.

I stayed at this hotel to attend my son's graduation from Navy boot camp. The front desk employees were helpful, the proximity to the Naval base was within 9 minutes and the room exceeded my expectations for being updated, comfortable and clean. The room was actually gorgeous with a refrigerator and kitchenette. I will definitely stay again.

We chose this hotel due to its close proximity to the Pleasant Praries Outlet Mall in Wisconsin.
