      A tip for people ever using any kind of discount.. always ask what

      the rate of the room is before mentioning any kind of discount. after

      working in the military itt office, we often found that the rate when

      asking for the dicounted rate first was the same as the original

      rate!! when you get the original rate first however, and then ask for

      the discount rate, you will get a lower rate. dishonest on their

      part, but it’s true.

      local hotel for the active duty military rate. No need to mention

      his graduation, just that he is active duty military.

      weeks and this was the best price that I could find. If you have aaa

      they give pretty good discounts too. i dont know about marine bases

      but you might want to call the welcome office there to find out the

      best area to stay in. some areas near the army base in sc were really

      bad, drug and prostitute neighborhoods. hth!!
