Temporary lodging at Eielson Air Force Base is offered by the Gold Rush Inn, located in Building 540. The Inn is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year, and is the 24-hour check-in point for arriving airmen. Most rooms are located near the commissary and Base Exchange. There are a small number of rooms available for families with pets. Shots records must be on hand.
Reservations are strongly recommended! Summer season has a large number of PCSing airmen and soldiers, and transient military on exercise; winter has less traffic, but this is the middle of Alaska, and not having reservations is risky. For advance reservations, call 907-377-1844 or DSN 317-377-1844.
Additional temporary lodging facilities are available nearby in local Fairbanks hotels, and they may have military specials - call and ask. These may be authorized to supplement lodging if there is no room at the Gold Rush in - a Non-Availability slip is required for full reimbursement.
