As an active military service member, you have many temporary housing options available to you. Making the right choice for you and your family is the most important thing. If you are about to embark on a PCS, on-base housing may be the best option for you. You will be able to get a lay of the land on the base and save money too. Hotels that offer extended stay arrangements may be another option you may want to consider especially as you travel to your ultimate destination. When you call to make your reservations, ask about eligible military discounts or government rates.
Another great benefit you should take advantage of when available is Armed-Forces Recreational Centers (ARC). ARCs are just like resorts without the top prices. Here is a list of available ARCs.
