Review by USMC Wife 2015
"We stayed at the Homewood Suites in Hanover for almost 2 weeks. Large clean room (we had the suite with a kitchen and a separate sitting area...the couch folded out into a sleeper). Lots of room for those with kids, free crib rental if you need one. Free hot breakfast (large selection) and also free dinner I believe 4 nights of the week. The price was well within our TLA rate and was reasonable enough that we were able to cover the extra 4 days we needed".
