Friendly place, big rooms / suites with cooking facilities, always clean and food thrown in on some weekday nights. Good value. Nothing much within walking distance though. Always my first choice in the area.

Hotel has suites with kitchen, living room and bedroom. Good for long term stay. No restraunts close by. The McDonalds is 0.7 miles from hotel. Other restraunts a little further. They have tennis court and outdoor pool.

The room was spacious, with a combination of work space and home feel. Full size appliances and dishwasher for all the comforts of home and not having to eat out every meal. Speaking of meals, the buffet breakfast has a great combination of hot and hearty foods as well as healthy and refreshing. The staff was very friendly and provided...

This is a great hotel at a great price. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The Internet is good and the rooms are spacious. They have a great hot breakfast in the morning too. The amenities were excellent. I would recommend staying here.

Services, cleanliness, amenities are excellent - and as good as you would want in a home away from home, perhaps better. Well appointed rooms are very clean, services are great and easy to use. But what stands out most are the people and their exemplary service. Exemplary. They will, and do, go out of their way not just to be...

We stayed at the Residence inn the week of our son's PIR and it was great. It is located 4 miles from the base, around the corner from Sarge's Meet & Greet and close to walmart and several restaurants. It made everything very convenient. The staff was very friendly and awesome and kept our towels fresh and beds made neatly....

We were going to stay at the Courtyard, but at the last minute we changed our location to the Residence Inn. They had a good free breakfast and we stayed in a two room suite with TWO bathrooms and THREE tv’s. It made everything very convenient. And the beds were great-so comfortable. I wish we could buy one for home....

We have an amazing visit to watch my son graduate from the Naval training at Great Lakes. The staff at Residence Inn were simply tremendous.

While impressed with the proximity to the naval base, and extremely happy no matter WHAT facilities we had, for the price, I could only give 3 stars. Partially updated but kitchen cupboards were old. Odd smell in room. $100 nonrefundable pet fee was high and thus this should not be considered pet-friendly. There is no indoor pool and hot tub...
