Hotel was perfect for relaxing and enjoying time with our new Sailor over PIR weekend. We recommend the one or two room suites to have extra space. Close the Great Lakes Naval Base, restaurants and shopping. Great staff. Breakfast was well done. We appreciated the personal touches. Would definitely stay again.

Thank Paula and Ed B

So whether you are visiting a loved one at Great Lakes Naval Air Station or the Federal Healthcare Center (VA Medical Center) or meeting with Abbott or Cardinal Executives this Residence Inn is the "safest" place to stay. Close enough to restaurants but in a very quiet somewhat secluded area. Nice rooms, great staff and good price.

My employer's HQ is in the area and I've stayed all around the area over the past ten years, but never at this place. My bad: I guess I didn't realize it was there.

🌸Perla greeted us when we walked in. She processed our reservation quickly. Ask why we where here, offered us breakfast, gave us the "Dear Navy Families & Friends" packet and gave us more information! 🌸She is a keeper! 📌We arrived early but Perla suggested another room; we took it. The room was clean; just what was advertised. Everything was great!...

I stay at Marriott properties often and I can say that this hotel met all of my expectations. They were helpful with ideas of where to eat, accommodated all of our needs and questions.

Friendly place, big rooms / suites with cooking facilities, always clean and food thrown in on some weekday nights. Good value. Nothing much within walking distance though. Always my first choice in the area.
