Army Lodging

Army Lodging Hospitality Programs is passionate about providing quality hotel accommodations to America’s Soldiers, Families, Retirees, and civilians. Army Lodging is your choice for official and leisure travel. Our guests include Department of Defense travelers on official business, as well as military members and their Families traveling on Permanent Change of Station orders. Retirees and Military Families can also make reservations when the facilities are not required for official travelers. Army Lodging is available throughout the United States, Europe, Korea, and Japan at 46 on-post locations.

Military personnel on orders must receive a Certificate or Statement of Non-availability from Army Lodging prior to staying in an off-post hotel in order to be reimbursed for lodging expenses.

Whether you’re on PCS or TDY orders or just visiting our community, we provide lodging and hospitality services to eligible patrons for America's Army.

Located on Tower Barracks (Grafenwoehr), our facility is comparable to limited service commercial hotel standards and represents quality and consistency from installation to installation. Our staff is available 24 hours a day to accept your reservation, welcome you to our hotel and make your stay as pleasurable as possible.

We thank you for making Army Lodging your first choice - and we look forward to your visit on Tower Barracks (Grafenwoehr).
