Lodging Options for AYA Ceremony Weekends

Welcome to the AYA Lodging Page!

If you are coming from out of town to join us for ceremony, you may be considering your options for where to lodge.

While you are welcome to stay wherever you wish, some members of the AYA community have opened up their homes in Tucson to welcome ceremony attendees in for the weekends, and we continue to have an agreement with Hotel McCoy in Tucson that affords AYA ceremony participants a discount on their stay.

In Joshua Tree, we have some on-site lodging available and many of our ceremony participants have found the High Desert Motel in Joshua Tree a good off-site lodging option over the years as well.

Simply scroll through this page to look over the lodging recommendations we have put together for your consideration and please feel free to email us at ceremony@aya.guide if you have any questions.
