We stayed at the Navy lodge and it was a great place. Rooms were clean, comfortable, and priced right and the staff was very nice and very knowledgable about PIR (not going to get that anywhere else). The other great thing was we were 5 minutes from RTC! This made it great the morning of PIR and for the back and forth for liberty (mine was a grad n go at Naval station Great Lakes which is about another minute away). The downside was you really need a rental car. Nothing within walking distance. There is a great mall 8 mins away, with lots of food options. I would highly recommend flying into Milwalkee (sp?) The traffic in and out of Chicago is ridiculous. The 47 miles to GL took us 2 hours at 6pm!
Navy Lodge phone is 847 689 1485 , just call them and make reservation
Are we allowed to stay at the Navy lodge? Only my SR is Navy. We are totally new to this.
Yes you are alloved to stay in Navy Lodge
Ok, so I'm VERY new to this. My Son left for boot last week and I want to make plans for going to his graduation. Probably the middle of October. Hate flying, so will probably be taking the bus from Minneapolis.
Can someone PLEASE tell me what the "Navy Lodge" is ? I will be by myself and as my son says "directionally challenged. " (Can't find my way out of a paper bag without Mapquest.)
I'm also a senior citizen on a small fixed income, but it is extremely important to my Son and myself that I attend the ceremony. I am so proud of him for following his dream. So any help with doing this on a small budget would be of great help.
Not even sure what to expect with all of this.
Where exactly isit and how close to the base is it. Does it have a shuttle?
