The North Star Inn provides all temporary lodging on Elmendorf AFB. Reservations for lodging should be made as far in advance as possible to insure temporary lodging facilities are available upon arrival. If the accompanied member and their family do not have a confirmed reservation they may be issued a non-availability slip to go off base and obtain a hotel/motel in Anchorage. During the summer month's hotel/motels are limited. The lodging office has a referral list of hotels/motels that are within the Temporary Lodging Allowance costs. They can also provide listings of off base hotels/motels that accept pets.

Moving to an off base hotel/motel is not automatic. The military member must be issued a non-availability slip from the lodging office before going off base to obtain a hotel/motel.

Transient facilities include one, two and three bedroom units for families. These units have everything needed to live comfortably while in a travel status. Each unit has a washer, dryer and complete cooking facility.
