TEMPORARY LODGING read more...
The Inn on Davis-Monthan features 174 visiting quarters rooms, 61 visiting Airmen quarters rooms and 50 temporary lodging facilities (25 one-bedroom and 25 two-bedroom units). The lodging office and most accommodations are conveniently located near the Mirage Club, community center, base exchange, commissary, post office, dining facility and Burger King. A customer is generally considered to be Priority 1 when on PCS or TDY orders, and Priority 2 for all other type of visits. The reservations line is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on a first-come, first-served basis without regard to grade. Lodging’s 24-hour-a-day reservation and information line is 748-1500. The front desk is open 24 hours daily.
If arriving after normal duty hours, or on weekends or holidays, newcomers should check in at the 24-hour arrival point, the Inn of Davis-Monthan, Building 2350, on Tenth Street. The telephone number is 748-1500. If newcomers arrive during duty hours or have made prior arrangements, they should go directly to their unit. The unit will schedule the Airman for mass in-processing with the Military Personnel Section. In-Processing briefings are held Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7:30 a.m. at the Professional Development Center, Building 2441, to the right of the BX. All Airmen must accomplish in-processing within two days of arriving at D-M.
During mass in-processing, newcomers will receive appointments for mandatory briefings, including Right Start, Base Sponsorship and Supervisor Financial training. Military members must wear a uniform during in-processing. To keep things running smoothly, everyone should bring the following items and information:
• A pen
• All remaining copies of current orders and any amendments
• Finance records (receipts for motels, ground transportations etc., for those who were not paid mileage)
• Military transportation request, if returning from overseas
• Duty information – Duty title, duty phone, office symbol, supervisor’s rank/full name
• SSNs for dependents for TRICARE enrollment In addition to base in-processing, all Airmen must accomplish in-processing with their unit before taking permissive leave for house hunting.
In a continuing effort to reduce the adverse economic impact permanent change of station has on military families, dining hall meals are now available during PCS moves. Military members may bring their dependents to the Desert Inn dining facility for a period not to exceed 30 days after arrival at D-M. Prices are ala carte, and current policy requires the military sponsor to accompany civilian family members whenever they use the facility. Call 228-5501 for more information.
All members should call the traffic management flight to arrange delivery of household goods. Make arrangements by calling 228-4816. Failing to call in a timely manner may result in household goods being put into storage.
Another thing to take care of right away is arrangements with the post office, Building 2240. Single members living in the dormitory will get a post office box. General delivery for mail is assigned for everyone else until the post office receives a forwarding address.
