I arrived in Wuakegan, IL last weekend and checked into a hotel down the street. That place was cheaper but what a dump. So I immediately checked out, they ended up charging me a cancellation fee, but I was not gonna have my kids stay in that kind of place, so I paid and left.
So then we headed over to the America's Best Value and was totally surprised how clean the place was and only a little more money, but they had a lot more amenities than the other place and a lot cleaner.
1) They had a well heated pool which my kids loved (the water was like a hot tub).
2) The breakfast was ok, but sufficient. We usually just eat cereal and toast in the morning, so not too picky on that.
3) Their internet worked awesome, and they had a lot of channels on tv, so I was able to watch all my college football games with my brother who graduated from the navy.
4) They had a free shuttle to the base for the graduation which was awesome.
TIP: You can drive if you have a car, but there is a lot of traffic in the morning. I felt I was rushed a little after the graduation to catch the shuttle, but that was not the hotels fault. I noticed everyone there who took the shuttle were running for the pick up, because the security on the base kicks all the shuttles out after a certain time. I guess if u drive, u can stay longer...didn't really make sense to me, but I was just glad to see my brother graduate. He was able to come back on the shuttle with us, which was a plus.
So, back to the hotel...the place was great. Place is clean, people who worked there were extremely courteous and helpfull. There's a restaurant located across the street, and they had all the amenities for the right price. Plus its only like few miles away on the same street as the naval base. I will definitely stay there again when I visit my brother who's going to A-School there for the next few months. Oh, and they accept dogs, though we didn't bring our lab, logan, but I'm glad to know I can bring him next time.
