When travelling, whether it is for business or pleasure, there is one universal theme…Where to stay. Everybody has their check list of what makes up of the ideal accommodations. How close is it to where you will be working or playing? What part of town is it in? Is there a pool? Gym? Restaurant? And the questions go on and on. One other question that comes up for us…Is there a military discount?
Here is a list of Hotels and Motels that offer a discount. Some even offer a discount to retired military as well, so as we always say, do not be afraid to ask!
- Choice Hotels owns many locations in the U.S. and around the world. Under their umbrella are Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria, Rodeway, Econo Lodge and others.

As always, this is just a small sampling of some of the offerings. There are more hotel chains, and indepedents hotels and motels with great discounts for both active duty and veterans. They don’t always advertise the discounts, so the only way to know for sure…is to ask!
