Navy Graduation

Me and my family where there for my son's graduation from boot camp. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the shuttle service to the graduation was great. Very good value for the money and I would stay there again.

Great Graduation

I went to see my son graduate from Navy boot camp and stayed at the Candlewood Suites. The rooms was clean and smelled good. It was located in a good area and not too far from things. I would definitely stay there again.

Navy graduation

Was in town for a navy graduation. The hotel was fairly close to the naval base and they provided a shuttle. The staff was friendly and the room was nice. Nice place to stay and a fair price

Beautiful hotel!

This room was everything you could hoe for and more! It was beautiful, comfortable and plenty of space. Not to mention we had a full kitchen right in the room! It was close to a bunch of stores and restaurants, making it easy to walk if necessary. I would give it five stars but the only thing I wish it had was a pool or a hot tub. Otherwise we had an amazing time there!

There is a Walmart almost across from the hotel that you can walk to if you want. Making it nice to get any last minute things you may have forgotten!

Overbooked .... fortunately!

My wife and I arrived to find that the hotel was over booked. The staff said they would transfer us to another Candlewood facility, about 10 miles away, and compensate us for our inconvenience. At this point the manager came out and refused to give us the volunteered compensation and proceeded with our transfer. We were actually happy to move since the Waukegen building and reception area was rather shabby and a bit smelly. Well, did we get lucky. The Candlewood Suites LIBERTYVILLE was in a better neighborhood, had nicer grounds, and had just received a 7 million dollar renovation. Everything was brand new. Bear in mind these are long term stay facilities geared for residents staying for a week or more. That said, I would give the Candlewood suites, LIBERTYVILLE 5 stars. The rating shown above and below this review is for the CHICAGO-WAUKEGAN Candlewood. and submitted without actually staying there. The moral of the story is "Don't overbook". I would definitely recommend the LIBERTYVILLE Candlewood Suites to my friends

Awesome Stay

Staff was incredible. Nice gym, Rooms are super clean and extremely spacious. We loved it. It was really close to the Naval Base where our son was Graduating. Rates were great. You will not regret your stay here. There are lots of restaurants near by also.
