TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. ~ "The original Sand Dollar Inn was built in 1941; more than 80 years later, it is undergoing a monumental rebuild.

The new Sand Dollar Inn, slated for completion in Fall 2024, will be a modern five-story, sleek building. Amenities include laundry facilities, a restaurant, conference rooms and an additional 360 guest rooms with a lobby at the center of two symmetric east and west wings. Furthermore, the building is expected to withstand winds of 165mph and up to a Category 5 hurricane. 

In addition to the new facility, the two currently operable visitor’s quarters will remain as backups for large-scale events providing a total of 483 rooms.

Joseph Moore, 325th Force Support Squadron lodging manager discusses some of the innovative features the facility will include to improve guests stay such as a digital guest information site that takes the place of the standard guest room hard copy binder and the new Lodging Entertainment Platform that will allow guests access to their personal streaming services, like Netflix or Hulu. The system is also designed to delete all personal access data provided by the guest at check-out." ~ TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla.
