The WORST hotel I have ever stayed in!!! We checked in late on Wednesday afternoon and was tired from our commute from Maryland. So, we really didn't have time to check the room out much. The room was filthy, carpet is dirty, there were pubs in the shower from previous guest, there were burn holes in the blankets, water in... More

When I need a reliable place to stay and want good value I never hesitate to pick a local Red Roof Inn. This was no exception, and my daughter and I had two rooms here last night. The location is really good for the nearby Great Lakes Navy Base (think - graduations!) and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Interior... More

They have smoking rooms and the smoke is unbearable! Nasty bathrooms, holes in the walls, broken air conditioner in the main hall, tape on every window, dirty, unkept! Nasty carpets and bullet holes in the chairs and walls...looks like blood on the floor where someone may of been murdered.

It met all our needs but nothing extra. When we booked the hotel it said that there was a Continental breakfast but when we arrived and went down in the morning there was no breakfast available what so ever . They said they changed it at the beginning of the month which is fine but there was no warning of... More

It's true that "breakfast" sucks, but the room was adequate and cheap. Generally the hotel is clean. The fitness room is just a treadmill and a 50lb weight. I can't speak for actual room service because this was my honeymoon and the "Do not disturb" sign stayed on the door, but the housekeepers were very accommodating when I replaced towels... More

Simple hotel. The hotel is old but looks like they are trying to do updates. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. Was there for the weekend to watch my son's Navy graduation. Breakfast was very basic. But many restaurants are close by on the main road.

Great place to stay if you are going to Great Lakes for a Navy Boot Camp Graduation. These folks even have a schedule of events for the Graduation. Not to mention the fact that they provide shuttle rides to the event. Great people, great service.

Bed bugs!!! Please don't stay here!! I've spent over 100 dollars trying to stop them from traveling home with me back to Oregon. The hotel moved me to a different room and then this morning I noticed bed bug bites on my back that itch and burn. I will hopefully receive compensation for my troubles but I doubt it. Bottom...

I gave this a excellent rating for the price, and the room being so clean. Staff was also very efficient. The rugs in the room, and hall also looked almost new. Many places to eat around area, but if walking be careful, traffic on main road makes it a bit dangerous to cross.
