The room was clean, modern and comfortable. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. When we needed directions, help with the room safe, or recommendations for places to eat, the staff was prompt and thorough.

All of the desk staff were extremely friendly, helpful and informative about the surrounding area. The beds and the pillows were both comfortable. Our son took a nap and as soon as...

This place was great. The staff was very upbeat and positive. We flew into Ohare...rented a car and then drove straight to Sleep Inn. The Staff at the hotel provided all local information. The streets are easy to navigate...but the GPS was super helpful. Since the hotel was so close to the Graduation, we decided to take the shuttle from...

Best place to stay if you have a sailor graduating from the Naval Academy. They are extremely helpful and even throw a small party for the graduation. Very clean and a great staff. They have a shuttle that takes care of all the worries of getting on base .

We weren't looking for anything fancy for just two days. The Sleep Inn was modestly priced and worked fine for us. My granddaughter and I stayed here for 2 days while visiting Lake Forest College.
