Nice hotel. Their rooms are clean but the only problem that I think they need to work on is their bed sheets, comforters and pillows. Their pillows are very flat and you can see stains in the white sheets which very uncomfortable.

No HBO as advertised. Room mostly clean. Dead beetle on bathroom floor. A long hair in the tub. Found a black Beauty capsule under heater. Staff very nice. Shuttle to graduation very nice. If you don't need much more than a place to sleep, it's fine.

Older hotel near the Naval Training Center

This is an older hotel around 2 miles from the NTC. I was in Chicago for my son's graduation and it was a perfect location. It is a no frills hotel, but inexpensive and I had a pleasant stay.

Attending graduation for NAVY beware.

Pros: Close to base.
Cons: Service and quality of hotel. Molding in room coming up, burn marks in quilts, and holes in wall.
Location: Close to all Chicago has to offer.
Traveled to Chicago for our son's graduation from boot camp. The second night there the overnight temp was 0 degrees. Our heat went out. Night clerk offered to move us to another room. It was a smoking room when I booked a non smoking room. When I complained, the clerk told me he'd have the manager contact me. The next day was graduation and I didn't get back to the hotel until 4 pm. I was told that the manager was gone for day. When I requested to speak to manager, clerk told me he'd have manager call me. I never got a call. Went back down to clerk three times telling him the manager never called. No offer of reduction in rate or refund offered. Clerk said I was already getting discount because I was in town for graduation. Being an ex smoker, the smell of smoking in the room was disgusting. Only offered a plug in airwick which did nothing for the smell. Just be careful, hotel doesn't seem to care if you have a problem. Plus, we never had housekeeping come in to clean while there or take up old dirty towels. Had to go to front desk for clean towels.

Pros: It was close to the Navy base
Cons: CLEAN and make sure things in the room work!
Location: Only 2 restaurants near by, and the Navy base was about a mile away
I requested a 2 bed non-smoking room, and as soon as I opened the door it reeked of cigarette smoke. The sink was not cleaned even had toothpaste inside the bowl. Obviously the sink wasn't cleaned, I only hope the sheets were washed! The light by the sink wouldn't turn on all the way and had to hit the fixture to get it to work. The outlets next to the sink were burnt out, so I couldn't use the hair dryer in the morning since it was attached to the wall next to the outlet. Even the phone didn't work! The only good thing was the nice lady at the desk popped the circuit breaker to see if that would help, it didn't but she did find a room that was open so I could go in there to at least dry my hair.

Close to the Naval Academy

2 out of 5
Posted Dec 22, 2016
Pros: It was close to the Naval Academy for the graduation.
Cons: Upkeep
Location: We were there to attend the graduation from the Naval Academy.
The heat was not working properly, it was stifling hot. We had to periodically turn the heat off and let it cool down. The bathtub did not drain properly, so you were standing in water, shower curtain was missing hooks, one of the beds was tilted. Pillowcases were stained. No Kleenex in the room. The stairs going to the upper level were not cleaned off or salted.
