Air Force to Close Nine More U.S. Inns

November 4, 2022

The Air Force is closing nine more inns after a 2018 change that stopped subsidizing the inns with federal appropriations, Stars and Stripes reported.

The facilities scheduled to close in spring include those at:

  • Arnold Air Force Base, Tennessee
  • Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota
  • Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts
  • Homestead Air Reserve Base, Florida
  • Los Angeles Air Force Base, California
  • Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska
  • Pittsburgh Air Reserve Station, Pennsylvania
  • Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma
  • Vance Air Force Base, Oklahoma

The closures are necessary “to meet a Defense Department requirement that all lodging is self-sustaining without taxpayer funding,” the Air Force said in a statement.

The Air Force announced this summer it would close the inn at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, Washington, D.C. More closures may be on the way.
