We are visiting San Antonio and planning to stay at the Air Force Lodging facilities. We didn't know there were several of them in San Antonio. Any recommendation which one is better than the other? Better in terms of cleaner or newer facility since the rates are the same. Thank you.

Lackland would probably be your best bet, they have a lot of lodging but they've been tearing down the older buildings so the total numbers may be less than what they used to be. Randolph is nice but I don't think they have a lot of accompanied billeting...or at least not as much as Lackland.

You can stay on Lackland or Kelly. If you stay on Kelly you will have to go through gate security every morning. Also, I work on Kelly, and if a car is broken into or something, the local police, not base police respond. There are some pretty rough areas around Kelly (now "Port San Antonio").

Stay on base! They have regular rooms, and also the dorm style shared bathrooms. I'm not sure at what rank they stop using the dorm style. As far as the difference between lodging sites on base, I'm not sure.

Oh, I read your post wrong. I thought you were specifically staying at Lackland. What are you here for? Work, or pleasure? If we knew what you needed to be near, that would help.

Lackland's is nice, and has won some awards as the best

I just stayed five at the Lackland hotel "Temporary Lodging Facility" for $35/night. They are great for the price, small bedroom and living room (each with tv), kitchen, bathroom. But yes as the other guy mentioned you will want to call as far ahead as possible to make sure they have rooms available. Good luck!

Price hasn't gone up much. I paid $20 a night back in 1990!
