Temporary Housing

Temporary Lodging Facilities

Long term temporary Navy and Marine Corps quarters are not available in the San Diego area. Military families must depend upon local hotels and motel accommodations, the Navy Gateway Inn & Suites, or Navy and Marine Corps Lodges. Civilian hotels and motels are available in varying price ranges. Most exceed the cost of the Navy or Marine Corps Lodge, especially during the summer months. Some civilian hotel/motel accommodations offer special military rates and some are available on a weekly/monthly basis. We recommend you make advanced hotel reservations in order to ensure you have a place to stay while seeking permanent housing. For more information or to make a reservation for a Navy or Marine Corps Lodge anywhere in the world, call 1-800-NAVY INN or visit the website. For more information on the Navy Gateway Inns & Suites or to make a reservation, call 1-877-Navy-Bed or visit the website.  

Eligibility/Orders

Reservations are accepted for all eligible personnel on a first-come, first-served basis. Family members staying at Navy Lodges without the military member present 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.

When the Navy Lodge is not available reservations can be made at the Navy Gateway Inns & Suites. Eligibility includes Military, DoD Civilians, or Family Members on Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders. Reservations and assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis without regard to rate or rank.

Availability/Costs/Registration

We recommend you make hotel/motel reservations early, in order to ensure you have a place to stay while seeking permanent housing. Civilian hotels are available in varying price ranges. Most exceed the cost of the Navy or Marine Corps Lodge, especially in the summer months. Some civilian hotels offer special military rates, are available on a weekly/monthly basis, have small kitchens, and/or may accept pets.

Maximum Length of Stay

Length of stay depends on the availability. Contact the Navy or Marine Corps Lodge for more information at 1-800-NAVY-INN or visit the website.

Location

There are three Lodges in San Diego: Naval Base San Diego, Naval Base Coronado (North Island), and Marine Corps Air Station Miramar (MCAS).

There are four Navy Gateway Inns & Suites: Naval Base San Diego, Naval Base Coronado (North Island), Naval Base Coronado (Amphibious Base), and Naval Base Point Loma (Subase). Children under 12 years of age are not permitted, except for Naval Base Point Loma where children under 18 years old are not permitted to stay overnight.

Pet Restrictions

The Naval Base San Diego Navy Lodge is the only military lodge in San Diego that accepts pets (certain restrictions on type and size of animals may apply). Pets are not allowed in the Navy Gateway Inns & Suites. Plan in advance to ensure you have adequate accommodations for your pets. Ask Military One Source to research kennel information or call the Lodge to check policies.

Overseas Clearance/Special Needs

Overseas Clearance is not required at Navy and Marine Corps Lodges in the San Diego area. There are units that are wheelchair – or disabled – accessible. A unit accommodates a maximum of five people if one child is of crib age. Families larger than this must rent two units, if available.
