    Confused Ft. Lewis lodging questions????

    Advertisements
    Hey Ladies!

    My soon to be husband and i are getting married aug. 1 and after that we are planning for both of us to go back to Ft. lewis until he deploys but the question is where would we stay? i know that there is lodging on the base but the rates are very high... and i thought that the lodging on base was suppose to be cheaper then off base rate. Maybe someone who has been in my shoes can tell me where we should stay or what to do.... thanks!

    There is a La Quinta near post. I know there are some SUPER cheap places on Pacific Ave. but they are really sketchy. How long will you be here for?

    Yikes that's a long time for a hotel. Good luck though. Base lodging really isn't meant for that sort of thing. Hopefully, you guys can figure something out.

    That would be a long time for any hotel!

    Do you or your DF have any friends in the area that you two can stay with?!?

    Does your DF have any married friends with extra room? It would kinda suck for both couples since it's the last bit a time before the deployment but lodging would be expensive and I went out of my mind staying in lodging for 10 days. Or I know there are some on post houses that are empty. Are you planning on staying at Lewis after he leaves?

    Honestly, I would come out the week before he deployed and stay that week in a hotel. It's unrealistic to stay in a hotel that long.

    I found an extended stay hotel but it's like $25 more a night than lodging. He'll get BAH from the date you get married but it will take a while to get it so you'd have to put the money up. I think I'd just stay in GA. It sucks to do when you're just married but if you think about it in terms of the deployment length it's not that much extra time.

    yes i know... we just want to spend as much time together as possible... and my job has already given me the time off. so the lodging is the only thing thats stopping us.
