With certain military moves, you may find yourself looking for housing that’s a little less permanent before making long-term arrangements. There are several temporary housing options that may be right for you. Explore the information about temporary housing facilities including allowances, lodging rates and eligibility.
Make reservations at the High Desert Inn at 661-275-7666 or DSN 525-7666 as soon as possible once you have your travel dates. We are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays.
Information needed to make reservations includes your name, rank, arrival and departure dates, the number of individuals staying in the unit, the number of children (if any), the number of pets (if any), and a phone number at which you can be reached, along with your email address, organization, mailing address and credit card information.

Active-duty military members on permanent change of station orders are eligible and have priority to stay at the Desert High Inn, followed by retirees. Department of Defense civilians on PCS orders or just passing through are also eligible to stay. Invited contractors who are relocating to Edwards Air Force Base because of an assignment must have special permission from the installation commander or have an active-duty military member sponsor their stay. Present a copy of your PCS orders upon check-in.

Two pets may accompany you in one of our Pet TLFs. Advance approval from management is required for a third pet. There is a nightly pet fee of $10 that is automatically assessed to your nightly room rate. You must present your pets’ current shot records at the time you check into your unit. Pets are not authorized in any room other than a Pet TLF. If it’s found that a pet has been kept in a non-pet unit, you will be asked to leave immediately.
Edwards’ High Desert Inn has only one room for families with special needs. The entrance to that room has a ramp to accommodate a wheelchair. Currently, the room is being modified to properly accommodate family members with special needs.

The units have cooking facilities, a queen-size bed and a twin-size bed in the bedrooms, and a couch that converts to a double bed and a chair that converts into a single bed in the living room.

Junior enlisted personnel should work closely with their sponsor and first sergeant to arrange for a dorm room to be ready when you arrive. In most cases, individuals with PCS orders are given top priority. Should accommodations be unavailable, newcomers are given a Certificate of Non-availability and a list of off-base temporary lodging.
