I recently visited the Navy Lodge when our son graduated from Navy Boot Camp. Hooyah! The Navy Lodge quickly became our "Home Away From Home" during our three days there. It's close to base, has a NEX mini-mart within walking distance, is convenient to shopping and restaurants. It has all the normal hotel amenities including a Continental breakfast every morning....

The Navy Lodge exceeds expectations of your "typical" government hotel. The rooms were clean and well-maintained. The hotel staff were friendly and provided a great experience. I would happily stay here again

We choose to stay here and take the train into Chicago for the Cubs game. The price was right and whenever you stay on at a military hotel your stay is nice. The near by convenience/gas station was handy as after traveling all day we just wanted to relax and sleep. We grabbed some cheese and crackers and we were...

We have stayed several times at the Navy Lodge. Some rooms have separated bedrooms and a kitchen area. Rooms have always been clean and well maintained, and friendly service. Includes breakfast. Easy commute to Chicago for sightseeing and Great America and Gurnee Mills Mall.
