On-base lodging is available at the Inns of Charleston. The Inns of Charleston is located on the base on Hill Boulevard across from the Fitness Center. Phone: (843) 552-9900 DSN: 673-3806 Reservations Phone: (843) 963-3806 DSN: 673-3806 TLF units are in close proximity. There are two pet-friendly TLFs available for an additional fee. Reservations can be made in advance. If on-base lodging is not available, lodging will provide a list of off-base motels/hotels. Single members, E4 and below with less than three years active duty, will be assigned a dormitory room upon arrival.

During normal duty hours single enlisted or geographically separated enlisted members should contact their Orderly Room for assignment to a dormitory room. After duty hours they should check with the Lodging Office and the clerk will assist them in contacting their dorm manager/First Sergeant for dorm rooms. Charleston AFB does not have Bachelor Enlisted Quarters (BEQ) or Bachelor Officer Quarters (BOQ).

The Shady Oak Campground (FAMCAMP) has 23 RV and 6 tent campsites available on a first come first served basis. RV sites are $10 per night and tent sites are $6 per night.

If temporary lodging is not available the reservation clerks can assist you in making recommendations for local hotel/motel reservations. Off-base temporary lodging is plentiful - just make sure that the cost is within your per diem range. Many of the hotels accept pets.

No pets are allowed in lodging with the exception of the two pet-friendly TLF units. If you need a pet-friendly unit, you should make your reservations as far in advance as possible. There is an additional fee of $10 for these units.

Limited special needs units are available.
