Temporary Lodging Reservations
Because Guam is a prime tourist destination in the Pacific, local hotels can be costly. Average off-base lodging will cost approximately $125 to $175 a night per couple. Inbound members should coordinate with Navy Gateway Inns and Suites to arrange for temporary lodging. New arrivals should be prepared to cover initial expenses up front for a minimum of 10 days.
Prior to arriving on island, individuals with command sponsored dependents should contact the Family Housing Office at 671-333-2081/2 to register for the weekly Housing brief. You are further advised to submit an advanced housing application (DD-1746) to verify housing eligibility and planning of government quarters availability. Applications can be faxed to 671-339-4048 or submitted via https://homes.mil/heat/DispatchServlet/HeatEntry, along with a copy of the member's orders and service record page 2 (for dependent verification). This determines if Temporary Lodging Allowance will be authorized and for how long.
Incoming service members with command sponsored families will be authorized TLA pending assignment to government quarters. Members MUST contact the Navy Gateway Inns and Suites at 671-339-5259 for reservations or obtain a "NON-AVAILIBILITY" letter with a control number. If you plan to travel with pets, check with the Navy Gateway Inns and Suites on their pet policy.
Due to the high cost of living, limited resources, and the distance from the United States, command sponsorship and command approval of family members is very important when being stationed on Guam. Not having command sponsorship could affect medical care, children's schooling, housing and many other benefits that you would be able to obtain if family members were command sponsored.
If you get married before you PCS, you MUST inform your command and follow the procedure exactly as you are given them. New spouses will need to be added to orders and ensure an overseas screening is done before the PCS. The military WILL NOT PAY for travel and housing of your spouse if you do not follow proper procedures.
