SEPTEMBER 20, 2022 – Military members looking to stay at a U. S. Marine Corps lodging facility can now call the Navy Exchange Service Command’s (NEXCOM) Department of Defense Reservation Center for reservations for the Inns of the Corps, Bachelor Officer Quarters and Marine Corps Recreational facilities.
NEXCOM’s DoD Reservation Center in Jacksonville, Florida, began handling reservations for the U. S. Marine Corps lodging facilities on Sept. 12.
“I’m very excited to have this opportunity to further support our military families,” said Stephen Pepe Jr., Director, NEXCOM’s DoD Reservation Center.
“My team and I take great pride in providing PREMIER Guest Service every time we book a reservation for a caller. We are honored to serve our military members’ travel needs worldwide, all day, every day, one guest at a time!”
NEXCOM’s Navy Lodge Program established a Central Reservation Center in 1984 to improve the service it provided military members making reservations at its locations.
The Central Reservation Center provided worldwide reservations in “real time,” becoming the only military service to provide this type service for lodging operations.
In 2012, the name was changed to the Department of Defense Reservation Center.
For reservations, U. S. Marines Corps guests can call 1-888-409-7829 (409-STAY).
