“Son's Graduation from Navy Boot Camp!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We booked two rooms for our son's graduation from Navy boot camp. The rooms were awesome. The staff was excellent and very helpful! Great location if you are visiting anyone at the Navy base in Great Lakes, Il. It was just a few miles from the base--so really easy to get our son to and from the base.

Booked the hotel for two nights. We were greeted at the desk by a line of about three people checking in at the same time. The attendant at the counter was very apologetic and was hurrying as fast as she could. The room was by far the cheapest of the hotels close by.

We checked in to our room, very modern design. Large and comfortable bed. Pillows were amazing (like they are in all Candlewoods). The room was very clean, was got a non-smoking room and there was no odor of smoke like some reviewers had posted about below.

Didn't use the fitness facility, but had a couple of treadmills and other pieces of equipment. The hotel is located just a few minutes away from Six Flags. There are also several eating options around such as Chilis, Potbellys, McDonalds, and Dunkin Donuts.

We did make use of the DVD library as our last night there, a thunderstorm came through and blocked the satellite signal for the tv. There are actually two pages of DVDs to choose from, so you are sure to find something to watch.

The only small complaint I had was that I was woke up at about 5am by someone changing the trash-bag in the trashcan outside the room (we were near the side door).

I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

Room Tip: I always go for the first floor, ask for the room beside the laundry room. The humming of the dryers...

Got to the hotel and something told me to check the room prior to unloading the car....WOW IT SMELLED HORRIBLE like smoke! Like someone had been smoking for weeks in the room!! This was of course a non-smoking designated room. Front desk had could not give is a different room and refused to refund our money. Run don't walk from this hotel. Fortunately hotels . com was willing to refund us because of the loyalty we have had towards them. Moved to the Courtyard Marriott down the street and will sleep well tonight!

I loved our room a lot it was very clean, spacious, felt like home! The staff are very friendly and there are good amenities. I only wish there was a pool. I stayed here for my husbands graduation from Navy boot camp, they gave us a free ride to the ceremony. I loved that we didn't even pay an arm and a leg. This hotel was one of the best part of my trips.

My first stay at a Candlewood and my experience here in Waukegan will make me try them again. Clean room, friendly people, and good price. A suite was nice, small kitchen area in room allows prep of simple meals.

The front desk employees were helpful, the proximity to the Naval base was within 9 minutes and the room exceeded my expectations for being updated, comfortable and clean. The room was actually gorgeous with a refrigerator and kitchenette. I will definitely stay again.
