Temporary Lodging

Ederle Inn

  • FIRST you MUST contact the hotel (Ederle Inn) on base to check for room availability.
  • Regular rooms are often booked up 6 weeks in advance, even earlier during peak PCS season.
  • Pet rooms are often booked up 3 months in advance
  • If the inn is booked up, your name will be put on a wait list. At that point you can reserve a hotel off base. The inn can send you a list of nearby hotels, their rates, and contact information.
    • Keep contacting the inn all the way up to the day of your arrival to check for any vacancies.
    • If there are still no vacancies at the inn when you arrive, you will need to get a certificate of non-availability from the inn to get reimbursed for TLA.
      • Note: the certificate of non-availability is obtained when you arrive on base (don’t worry about getting it on your first day, they will back date it to your first day of arrival) and then you will need to obtain another one after every 10 days you stay in temporary lodging off base.
  • Free Breakfast: muffins, cereal, breakfast bars, oatmeal
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Washers and dryers on site

Off Base Hotels

  • You must be denied lodging by the Ederle Inn before booking a hotel off base.
  • If booking a hotel off base you will need to give them your government travel card or credit card  information. You will want to reserve your hotel room for at least 30 days.
  • Keep in mind when choosing a hotel, that the soldier will need to be present for in-processing briefings every morning for 2 weeks. Plus, lower enlisted will have mandatory PT early in the morning in addition to their in-processing brief. Staying as close as possible to base is ideal.
  • Remember to obtain a certificate of non-availability from the inn to get reimbursed for TLA.

Hotel Mary

  • Hotel Mary is the next closest hotel located right outside of Chapel Gate. Since most people arrive without a vehicle, it is a very convenient choice.
  • Distance: 5 minute walk
  • Free breakfast: yogurt, fruit, pastries, bacon, eggs, and hot dogs.
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • 50 euro cleaning fee for pets (one time fee)
  • Near a public bus stop
