There is no on property restaurant but there are several restaurants and a Walmart across the street which is walkable. Rooms have a wellstocked kitchenette.

Waukegan is a nice small town with easy access to Chicago with just a train ride. If you're going for Navy graduation, it gives your Sailor a relaxing time away from base. Train station is in Great Lakes but a short drive away. The Candlewood Suites gave us a nice homey feel to relax in after our trip into the...

The room was amazing, looking forward on staying at this location again. The room was perfect. Clean, roomy, and comfortable at the same time. It is pet friendly, maybe I'll bring my dog with me next time. The have a small gym enough for up to 4 to5 to work out at once. The staff is very friendly .

We enjoyed our stay at the Candlewood Suites, great staff and nice room. We were there to attend Recruit Training graduation at Great Lakes Naval Station and the hotel shuttle to and from the ceremony made it really easy for us. We also appreciated all the time staff took answering our questions and advising us about the area.

My husband, youngest daughter, and I stayed here while attending my oldest daughter's Naval graduation. This hotel was conveniently located, very spacious, courteous, and comfortable. My parents also had their own room as well, and were very pleased. The staff there is friendly, helpful, and very outgoing. Would definitely recommend to others needing a room in the area!
