    Terrible stay
    We were looking forward to relaxing in the pool after a long day of driving prior to my sons navy cadet graduation. To our surprise we could not even swim. The pool was terribly over crowed with no supervision. Kids were jumping on rafts and splashing everywhere. We asked for towels and they had none left. I will not be back to stay there nor recommend it to others that are traveling to Great Lakes Navy headquarters.

    Waukegan concert stay
    The person at the front desk Saturday night held my credit card for 3 hours at check in stating several times it was declined. The hotel found their machines were not working or shut down. On Monday, Ann was very nice and figured this out before the end of our stay. Ann apologized many times and stated she will address my concern and stated that keeping my card was not appropriate. Ann spoke with her manager and comped one night of our stay.

    The hotel was clean and fine. The breakfast wasn't that great the first morning we were there but seemed much better in the following days we stayed. It was a little noisy at night.

    When I got there last Thursday your cadre was Very welcoming, the gentleman who is African American, the the lovely Spanish young lady, my apologies for not remembering their names, they made sure my stay was comfortable offering their services with a smile and very polite, I was honored to have crossed paths with your representatives, please recognize their professionalism I’ll rate those two 10 plus stars. The gentleman was very informative about the area and local restaurants, may I say he was correct about the food at goyos Please I recommend that they train others to learn with politeness courtesy & being compassionate to others needs.
