NICE PLACE

The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was a free shuttle to and from the military base. The Inn was also within walking distance of a convenience store/gas station and several restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

graduation day for sailors

It wasnt bad the staff was doing some renovating but it didn't bother me nor could I hear it. The hotel was cheap and very close to the etc at great lakes and there's a car rental place right next to it so if your not interested in the shuttle or taxi which I paid $200 out of pocket to go around you could save more at a rental it was a good experience

Not Recommended

The room was average but you could hear every move the people upstairs made. This made it a non-sleep night. there also seem to be quite a bit of noise outside during the night.

Ok for low budget one night stay.

Ok if you have a tight budget and just want to find a place to sleep

Location was great for bootcamp graduation but BEWARE

I was pretty disappointed, when we arrived after 10pm, the owner said our room was not clean and upgraded us to a whirlpool suite. Room was old, dirty, no hair dryer, no conditioner for your hair, fridge smelled bad, TV was an old 19 inch box TV. They are doing some renovations to the hotel so I can hope it gets better. Hotel breakfast was sad, food was on paper plates or aluminum foil, was not professional at all. Orange juice was gross. Staff was nice but could not offer a hair dryer or conditioner to use. they only have shampoo which is super weird. I guess I am spoiled from staying at Hyatt and Marriott.

Not Happy

Check in was alright. Got to the room and my children quickly noticed that the remote for the tv was broken n didn't have any batteries. The floor was all wet about a 6 foot radius around the refrigerator and in the bathroom there wasn't even a holder on the wall for the toilet paper. I called the front desk n the maintanence came about 30 mins later. He was in and out 3 times before he suggested to the front desk that they change us to another room

Not the best decision

Did not get the room I reserved. Requested disabled accessible room, was unavailable when I checked in. Ice machine was out of order. We had to bring used towels to get fresh towels. The staff was friendly and apologetic. However, did nothing to correct their mistakes.
