Lodging Accommodations
Most visiting HAMMER students who train for extended periods stay at regional hotels, inns, and suites. This is good for students and good for the local economy. Many local lodging establishments offer government rates, shuttles to HAMMER, complimentary breakfasts, laundry facilities, room refrigerators and coffee makers, and data ports—all features important to HAMMER students. HAMMER cannot endorse specific facilities, but we suggest the Visit Tri-Cities website for further information.
