Somebody above me sounded like they were fighting till after 2 in the morning. The hotel does not appear to have any for if security. When i checked out they didn't even ask if everything was okay. I should have just slept in the car. It would be quiet at least.

We stayed here for my sons graduation from the United States Navy. It’s very close to base, about a 10 min drive. Very friendly staff. Awesome rooms with their own little kitchens! Very clean. The only thing is I wish they had heavier blankets. I get cold easy. We stayed in February so it was pretty cold. Other than that, which wasn’t a big deal, we had a great stay! Thank you Sonesta Es Suites, you helped our trip to see our son very comforting.

Stayed here as we came to see my son in the naval academy. Rooms are spacious with full kitchens. One of my rooms however had dust in it but other then that i would highly recommended it to navy familys coming out to the great lakes. It close to the base and has plenty of parking!

The hotel and its staff were excellent. I was touched by the support of our military member's family. The sign placed on my hotel door congratulating my son on his graduation from Navy Basic Training was heart warming. I am a big fan of this hotel.

It was cozy. But kitchen should be updated. Bathroom was separated from sink. Which I did not like. If a bathroom is a bathroom every thing should be in the same area. Because when someone goes out of the bathroom to the sink. It is very unsanitary. The handle will have germs on it.
