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 if you have any questions.

Julee has three upstairs rooms for AYA ceremony participants available at her place. All of the bedrooms feature comfortable, queen-sized memory foam mattresses and guests have access to one full bathroom upstairs and another half bathroom downstairs. Towels and linens are provided for all guests as well. The house features central heating and cooling as well as light-blocking panels on the bedroom windows to facilitate a comfortable rest between ceremonies. Guests will be given the WiFi password and a code to the smart lock on the front door -- so they can access the house at any time during their stay. Full kitchen is available for use with refrigerator, filtered water, and ice. The dining room and living room will be available as well as a backyard patio with a grill. Guests are welcome to borrow a ceremony mat (a 4-inch thick, trifold mattress) from the house for use during the ceremony weekend if they would like to as well.
