Many times as a traveler it is hard to locate housing on the road that is decent, and if you do find quality housing on the road it is very expensive. It is hard to find anything less than 100 dollars, and when you do find housing that is less than that it can be very scary. But as a member of the military, it can be possible to find housing when you travel at times for as low as $25 dollars. Most inns, motels and hotels in America and even overseas offer a low cost lodging option for military personnel. The reasons for this vary but many times operators of hotels and motels realize that as part of their job military personnel have a need to travel for their job, and so they want to attract a portion of the military travel business.
Military men and women are required to travel often during deployment or when traveling under orders, and so they are required to find housing for themselves in many cases when on the road. The discounts that are offered can often be sizable, allowing a military Servicemember to stay in facilities they may not be able to afford otherwise. Sometimes it will even allow a military Servicemember to stay in a location in a higher quality room, or a top-notch suite that without a generous discount they could not afford.
There are often military transitory housing, or military hotels on larger military bases in the United States. Often the lodging in them is reserved for military Servicemembers only and their dependents, so it can result in a large savings. Military hotels can also have a number of unique variations. For example often-military hotels will have a residential area, or be like kitchenette type facilities. This would allow a military Servicemember to stay in such a set of rooms, and save a lot of money by cooking at their hotel room.
Sometimes in a military hotel their will be a residential area, such as dining area, living room, kitchen and other type rooms. Sometimes this will be shared space with another military hotel tenant. Many times the entire cost for a room or suite at a military hotel is only 25 or 30 dollars, this type of pricing simply does not exist out in the civilian world.
