Nice little motel
Nice little motel. A bit dated but clean. WiFi was good. TV was good. Fairly close to the Navy base. I was there for my son's boot camp graduation. Looks and feels exactly like a five star hotel when you are asleep.

Close to naval base Great Lakes
This was the closest place to the naval base I could get. I dragged my fiancée there after extricating her from her family. This probably makes me biased about the motel.
