Very nice hotel to bring your Navy grad back to.

Pros: It was everything you want a hotel to be but for a reasonable price.
Cons: The towels could be softer, there could be an exhaust fan in the bathroom, there could be an extra hook or two in the shower room to hang towels.
Location: Walmart for shopping, Brunswick Zone, Six Flags great Adventure, good restaurants.
I would have to really nit-pick to find anything wrong with this hotel. The rooms were clean. The beds were comfy. The staff was terrific. The free breakfast was large and varied. Very nice and pleasant stay.

Great Hotel!

Pros: Cleanliness and location
Cons: The cleaning staff should be aware of any issues with the beds and have them fixed, repaired or changed out before any guest uses the room.
Location: Loved going to Historical Long Grove. Shopping right across the street and close to the Naval Base.
We came from L.A. to see our daughter graduate from the Naval academy. Our first night, we were exhausted and the bed my husband and I got was so noisy that none of us slept. Every time one of us would roll over, we woke every one up (we had 2 daughters with us). Now, having said that, I took the manager up to our room the next morning so he could hear how noisy the bed was. He said he would have maintenance come up and if not fixed would move us to a new room. We left and were gone several hours and upon return, our room was nice and clean and there was no noise coming from the bed. The manager was extremely nice, apologetic and took care of everything. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this hotel!

Nice hotel but...

Pros: Cleanliness, location, space and amenities.
Cons: pool extremely small, location of our room was not ideal for kids
This was a nice hotel but we were on first floor right next to the outdoor patio. After a long day of soccer matches the kids were tired and cranky; the noise from the outdoor patio was really loud and did not make the night relaxing at all. Room was clean and nice setup; I do not think it was worth the price that I paid though.

Great place to stay for Navy Graduation

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
The hotel was very nice, clean and the room was a nice size for our family. I booked a suite with two queens and a sofa bed as we had 3 adults and 3 small children. There was a fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room. A huge walkin closet. Breakfast had a nice selection with fruit, eggs, waffles, pastries, cereal, oatmeal, juice and coffee. They have a shuttle for $3 pp that will take you over to the RTC for graduation and I recommend this as the traffic is bad by the base. Walmart, Starbucks and a few restaurants are right across the street.

I will try to look for a Springhill Suites Hotel wherever I vacation-It was wonderful!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, modernspacious, convenient mini-kitchen, spa-like decor
We stayed at this hotel for my son's Navy Graduation. Excellent price, very spacious and modern. It felt like we were staying somewhere more expensive. We loved the details and styling of the bathroom, the bedlinens, and furniture. The Queen beds were extremely comfortable, and the pullout was even comfortable for a not-too-heavy person(my teenage daughter). The room divider with office/style computer desk with sliding window was great. We also enjoyed having a mini-fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and other kitchen extras.(popcorn, plates, cutlery) The flatscreen lcd tv was awesome, as was the free wireless internet. The staff was very helpful with directions and help finding restaurants, malls, etc. The indoor pool/hottub and excercise room was also very nice. The free breakfast was great-hot waffles, etc. The lobby/lounge was very hip and spa-like. Actually, the whole decor was rather spa-like, which I guess just made the whole atmosphere that much more pleasant. Great Job Marriott!

Great Lakes Naval Station/Waukegan

I have to say this hotel made for an excellent Graduation trip. It was close to the Great Lakes Naval Station and was surrounded by many good restaurant choices. The hotel was very clean, and the staff was really courteous and helpful. We had several questions, and were about the area, and were given good directions as well as coupons for local restaurants, and delivery options. The beds were very comfortable, the set-up of the room was good. There were four of us, & it was not inconvenient in the least. The breakfast was great, and there were good choices for everyone. I would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in the area, and would stay again.
