Recent guest reviews

The rooms were very clean and had a comfortable layout. The rooms appeared to be newly renovated.

The gentleman at the front desk was very helpful with recommendatons on what to do and where to go.

Great hotel to stay at if visiting someone on the Naval Base. Loved the room and the staff was helpful!

Candlewood Suites in Great Lakes is a wonderful place! Very friendly people, clean comfortable rooms and many amenities. We were there for our son's boot camp graduation last Friday and we arrived earlier than normal check in. They let us check in early and made sure we had everything we needed. And the gentleman who was the shuttle driver to the graduation was so nice! Later on when he saw me with my son, he congratulated my son! I highly recommend this hotel!

This is a wonderful place to stay especially for those traveling here for your loved ones graduation from the Navy Boot Camp. Great location, friendly and knowledgable staff, clean, roomy, comfortable, all your needs such as restuarant and Walmart within walking distance.

It was as nice room with no problems. Located close to where I wanted to be. However, was disapponted there was no pool. I though there was one when I reserved it, but evidently got it mixed up with another place I was looking at so I came prepared to swim and there was nothing there. Otherwise it was fine.

Stayed here for my sons bootcamp graduation! close by and great if your recruit is staying in Great Lakes for A-School, its just about a 5-10 minute drive!

We were really pleased with the hotel. Its a great location if visiting that Naval station. Bowling alley, restaurants, a walmart across the street. The room was really spacious, clean, and comfy.

Clean, comfortable room. Friendly staff. Convenient location.

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.

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.

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

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!

Close to shopping centers and mall, train station to chicago close by.

Loved the Hotel, very clean. Would recommend to anyone.

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

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.

Very clean and comfortable all for a good price. Staff was very nice. Would go there again!

Helpful, knowledgeable about the Navy boot camp graduation, close, shopping nearby.

Staff was phenominal! Great value here...they had everything we needed including a shuttle to the Great Lakes Naval Training Center! !!! Clean room with a comfy bed and a kitchenette! !! Will definitely be back!!!!
