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

The Navy suggested this dump and of course we bought in! Trust me I won't be staying here again! The towel situation is a joke! Don't ask for... 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

Sheets were stained. Hotel needed to be updated. Personnel was very nice. Breakfast was cold pastries. Very close to the Naval Base, our reason for being there. Very convenient to places like Walmart, restaurants, etc.

Not only was I afraid for my life staying in this place but now I'm afraid for my health. The walls had black mold growing on them. The shower didn't drain and was a brown color. The water in the sink didn't get hot and the toilet paper holder was ripped off the wall and set behind the toilet. I... More
