Transient Quarters are similar to civilian hotels, with rooms at a fraction of the cost. They offer daily housekeeping service, continental breakfast, cable television, room phones, high-speed Wi-Fi, coffee makers and amenities; all with private bathrooms.
Room rates vary from $27 to $55 a night. Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accepted. Checks are accepted from E-5 and above. Retired and active-duty personnel on leave are welcome to stay in Transient Quarters-Billeting on a space-available basis. Space-availability check-in time is after 4:30 p.m., strictly on a day-to-day basis, and is usually best during the winter months and on federal holidays.
Permanent party officers will be permitted to reside in Transient Quarters with the highest priority if PCS orders are presented showing permanent assignment to Camp Pendleton. Personnel must be in a bachelor status and not receiving BAH.
Permanent party personnel must agree to pay cable TV and telephone charges on a monthly basis. Housekeeping is available by request; fees apply.
The director, Billeting/Bachelor Housing Department, billeting manager or the assistant billeting manager must approve all room assignments for permanent party personnel.
