The Ft. Lewis Lodge or a Hotel?

 

When you arrive in Washington, either TDY house hunting, or permanently, you will need a place to stay while house hunting. Let me know if you would like an email list of local hotels that my customers have stayed at in the past. I always do informal surveys, and the hotels I recommend in Lacey or Olympia have all gotten good marks from others who have stayed there. If you are interested in staying at the Fort Lewis Lodge (Lodging) or at McChord Lodge, they can be reached at the following numbers: Ft Lewis Lodge 253-964-0211, McChord Lodge 253-967-2815, Waller Hall [Central In-processing] 253-912-2150, The Fort Lewis Lodge has been recently upgraded, along with a new addition of approx 100 rooms. Since the consolidation of Ft Lewis and McChord AFB into JBLM, the lodging facilities are shared. If you are looking for long or short term lodging while waiting to move into your home, don’t overlook the possibility of staying on the Air Force side if the Rainier Inn on Ft Lewis is full.
