Keesler maintains more than 1,400 temporary lodging units with a high occupancy rate. Contact them early and make your arrangements. Reservations can be made at the Inns of Keesler by calling 1-888-235-6343 or DSN 312-597-9986. Room rates can vary from $21 to $41 per night depending on rank. Prices and other information are always subject to change so please confirm all information.

Families of permenant party during PCS have priority for the 73 temporary lodging facilities (TLF). These facilities have fully equipped kitchenettes. Other priorities for this type of lodging are hospital patients and/or family and visitors of hospital patients. Please make reservation requests as soon as the exact date of your arrival is known. Maximum length of stay for TLF is 30 days.

Due to the high occupancy rate (93%) at Keesler lodging facilities, service members and their families are often referred to off base facilities. Lodging uses 31 hotels in the community for overflow. Generally the cost under "non-availability" runs $55-$61 per night. For this reason, be prepared financially for unexpected expenses just incase lodging is full. When calling to confirm your reservations, you may want to inquire if you will be lodging on or off base.

Pets are not allowed in lodging facilities, and the base does not offer pet boarding.

Space Available rooms may only be reserved for a maximum stay of three days. Space A is for intended for short term stays and may change daily, based upon prior commitments.

Technical Training Non-Prior Service Students (NPS) assigned to Keesler for school of 20 weeks or more (refer to orders) will find their family eligible for Lodging just as on any PSC move.

Married technical training students on orders for less than 20 weeks should budget carefully if planning to bring any family members to Keesler. TLF will be available on a space available basis and this could cause financial stresses if the family does not plan well. Please have back up plans for lodging; rooms in the community can easily run up to $100 or more per night. Please plan accordingly. For most students, this cost is out of pocket and will not be reimbursed.
