What Is the Valor Inn?
The Valor Inn has been established to provide short-term lodging for Veterans on a first-come, first-serve basis that have to travel a great distance for early morning appointments and outpatient procedures. Spouses or family members of the Veteran may also stay in the Valor Inn Room with the Veteran.
Family members or loved ones of hospitalized Veterans wishing to be near the Veteran during times of illness may be provided their own overnight accommodations in the Valor Inn on a space available basis. Family members or loved ones should contact the Administrative Officer on Duty (AOD) after 4:00 p.m. at (315) 425-6800 to determine if there are rooms available for the evening.
