Marines Memorial Association & Hotel in San Francisco, CA

14 March 2013 by

My husband was very excited the other day when a buddy of his told him about Marines' Memorial Association membership. As a military family, planning a trip is always difficult. Trips are usually booked last minute with my husband's Navy schedule and we are always searching for something within our budget.

TIP: We called about booking the hotel in San Francisco and rooms were about $150 a night, but the nice lady on the phone asked my husband if he was active duty. He said, "Yes, I am active duty." She replied, "Call back 14 days before your trip and if they have available rooms, they will give it to you for $75 a night." Cool! It's a risk, but worth it!  It worked, our room for our trip is going to be $75 a night in the heart of San Francisco! AWESOME!
