Chicago has two airports which are O'hare & Midway. I've also read on here many times that flying into Milwaukee is cheaper and isn't to far of a drive from Great Lakes. We stayed at Holiday Inn Express which was very nice. Their are a lot of other hotels near the base. You might also want to check out the Navy Lodge which is suppose to be reasonable and has had many good reviews.
