Need Information About On base Hotels??? Help?

My boyfriend just graduated from Technical School at Sheppard AFB & just moved to his first base, Altus AFB, in Oklahoma.
I've been planning a visit to go see him next month & he is paying for my plane ticket & I was going to take care of the hotel costs since he cannot have overnight visitors at the dorms. I was planning on a short visit so I could afford the hotel, but then I found out there is a hotel on base called the Red River Inn that is MUCH cheaper so I could stay longer.

The thing is, I can't find any information on whether or not a civilian girlfriend is allowed to stay at the on base hotel? So if anyone could help me out? Am I allowed to stay there, or do I have to find a hotel off base?
Also, one website said that this hotel provides transportation to & from the Lawton air port which would be EXTREMELY helpful, but I cant find that information anywhere else. It's all so confusing & the bulk of this trip plans rely on this. I wanna see my man so badly & it'll be my last chance until July because I go to a year round college.

So please, if anyone has been through this or knows about it please let me know. I would REALLY appreciate it.

Assuming that they work like Keesler AFB, girlfriends can't make reservations for the on base hotel. Only dependents and those with military id's because to check in you need one. The shuttle was only for military members at Keesler as well. How we made reservations was my guy just made it for me, met me at the gate, got me in and we went to the main hotel to check in. I'm assuming you don't need hotel waivers if he's out of tech school?

So Youre saying that if he makes the reservation at the on base hotel under his name then I can stay at that one?

Do you think he Would be able to take the shuttle to the airport to get me, If say, he cant borrow someones car to come get me?
