Air Force lodging rates are going up as of Oct. 1, according to the Air Force Personnel Center.

"The current $39 nightly room rate for a visiting quarters room will be $53.25 next week, and temporary lodging facilities will go from $43 to $55 per night," AFPC commander Maj. Gen. A.J. Stewart said in a news release. "Increased rates will fund costs for operations, room renovations and construction."

This marks the first increase in lodging rates in four years. As defense spending gets tighter, other "adjustments" may be necessary, Col. Thomas Joyce, director of the AFPC Services Directorate, said in the news release.

"We are committed to keeping room rates as low as possible while providing clean, comfortable, quality facilities," Joyce said. "This is part of our commitment to caring for Airmen and we take that obligation very seriously. However, we must be realistic as well."

The increased rates are still lower than comparable commercial rates, the news release said.
