The USMMA Alumni Association and Foundation encourages U.S. Merchant Marine Academy visitors to lodge at any of the below listed hotels and motels. Please note that during Indoctrination, Parents Weekend, Homecoming and Graduation, the majority of hotels and motels book very quickly. The USMMA Alumni Association and Foundation encourages to book well in advance and plan accordingly. Please also note that traffic can be difficult at times on Long Island so give yourself ample travel time in any direction.
