Temporary Housing

Temporary Lodging

There are three options for temporary lodging for transferring service members and their families - Visitors Quarters, Navy Lodge or local hotels.

Visitors Quarters

There are 7 Visitors Quarters Navy Inns and Suites in the Hampton Roads region. These facilities are available to both single and married service members and offer a variety of rooms: suites, single rooms, rooms with kitchenettes and rooms that are handicap accessible. For reservations and rates call 1-877-628-9233.

Navy Lodges

There are three Navy Lodges in the Hampton Roads area - Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, Norfolk Naval Base, and Dam Neck Annex. Amenities include: kitchenette, free local telephone calls, cable tv, air conditioning, cribs and rollaways, and irons/ironing boards. Call 1-800-NAVY INN in advance to make reservations or make reservations online.

Local Hotels

There are many hotels in the surrounding area. Room rates vary depending upon the hotel, size of the room and time of the year. Visit the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce website for more information on accommodations.


Reservations are accepted for all eligible personnel on an as-received basis. Official guests and visitors of the command may stay at the VQ and Navy Lodges. Reservations are to be made and guaranteed by the sponsor. Family members, staying at VQ and Navy Lodges without the military member, are required to show their identification at check-in. Guests of military personnel may stay at Navy Lodges provided the military member is present at check-in. Reservations and room assignments are made without regard to rank or rate, or time of reservations. You may make advance reservations based on your classification, keep in mind you may receive priority based on PCS orders.


We recommend you make advance hotel/motel reservations in order to assure you have a place to stay while seeking permanent housing. The approximate cost of a unit at the VQ or Navy Lodge is $56.00 - $80.00 per day. Civilian hotels/motels are available in all price ranges. Many of them exceed the VQ and Navy Lodge especially in the summer months.

Maximum Length of Stay

Length of stay depends on availability. Please contact the VQ, Navy Lodge or local hotel/motel for
more information.


Pets are not allowed in the VQ; Navy Lodges accept pets up to 50 pounds. Before you depart you old duty station, schedule a visit with your veterinarian to update all medications or treatments required and bring a copy of each pet's vaccination record. Carry a health certificate for each animal traveling with you. Bring appropriate food and other supplies and always travel with a pet carrier. When you are at the Navy Lodge, treat the area where you walk as if it were your own yard and always clean up after your pet, using the bags provided.

Some of the local hotels and motels do not accept pets. The pets welcome website will help you locate accommodations that accept pets.
