There are three options for temporary lodging for transferring service members and their families - Navy Gateway Inns & Suites, Navy Lodge or local hotels.
Navy Gateway Inns & Suites
There are 7 Navy Gateway Inns & 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-NAVY_BED or visit the website.
There are three Navy Lodges in the Hampton Roads area - JEB 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.
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 NGIS and Navy Lodges. Reservations are to be made and guaranteed by the sponsor. Family members, staying at NGIS and Navy Lodges without the military member, are required to show their identification at check-in. Guests of military personnel may stay at Navy Gateway Inns & Suites and 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 Gateway Inns or Navy Lodge is $56.00 - $85.00 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 NGIS, Navy Lodge or local hotel/motel for more information.
Pets are not allowed in the regional Navy Gateway Inns & Suites; however the Navy Lodgeshave limited ‘pet rooms' and some local hotels allow pets or local pet boarding facilities. Before you depart your 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.
