Thanks for your patience while I researched hotel possibilities. I traveled around and have identified several options – all of which are affordable at single or double occupancy. If you are driving, all of them will be within a twenty-minute drive of the jewelry studio and they are also found in close proximity to our Phoenix metropolitan light rail, allowing you the option of traveling to-and-from the studio without the expense of renting a car. The hotels are all located by Arizona State University and delicious and fun restaurants for dinner.

I also checked out short-term rentals in the area surrounding the studio, and I’m not overly thrilled with the neighborhood options. My recommendation is to choose a hotel on our list over a nearby VRBO or Airbnb.
If you would like to share a room with another student, please let me know, and I’ll do my best to pair you up!
I hope this info helps you with securing accommodations!
