Celebrating a Great Lakes Naval Base Graduation? Stay in Style. - The Inn on Sheridan

Very few moments in life will fill you with as much pride and joy as cheering on your sailor during their Great Lakes Naval Base graduation ceremony. Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, sibling, spouse, or significant other – this is truly a special time to celebrate with the ones you love.

At the Inn on Sheridan, we aim to make your stay in Zion, Illinois even more special so you can share great memories of your sailor’s graduation weekend – in style – for years to come.

A Community Connected to the U.S. Navy

To say that Zion shares a unique connection to Naval Station Great Lakes is a bit of an understatement.

In fact, 4 out every 5 families in our community have a Navy connection – whether they are active military families living off-base so their children can attend public schools, veterans who choose to retire in our area, or others who grew up here while their parents served and have simply never left.

Because of this, Great Lakes NAVSTA has become entrenched in our local economy and has helped shape our community’s character.

At The Inn on Sheridan, we have a deep respect for our military personnel. We are intentional about hiring veterans and reservists and also encourage our young staff members to participate in NJROTC while in high school or college as well.
