SEDONA: DIRECTIONS & MOTELS for March 2017
NOTE:  Prices have NOT been updated - call for 2017 prices, please.
ALL PRICES HERE ARE AT LEAST 6 or MORE YEARS OLD as of 2016

 The closest airport to Sedona is:  Phoenix-Sky Harbor International Airport.

Sedona is a two-hour drive north of Phoenix.  From the airport, take Interstate 17 [towards "Flagstaff"].   Use Exit # 298 [Sedona - Oak Creek] and drive north about 16 miles on Hwy. 179 to reach Hwy 89A.  The 7 Centers Yoga School where Barbara Marciniak's seminar will be held is in West Sedona, so turn LEFT (towards W. Sedona/Cottonwood) at the Roundabout junction of State Routes 179 and West 89A and then turn LEFT again at the Sunset Drive traffic signal.  The 7 Centers address is 2115 Mountain Road (go to the end of Sunset Drive, turn RIGHT on Shelby Road and then make the first LEFT into Mountain Road - before the Sedona Humane Society HQ.   There are NO recommended motels within walking distance of the 7 Centers Yoga School and Barbara Marciniak's Sedona seminar.  Most West Sedona Motels are within 2 miles of the 7 Centers Yoga School


RENTAL CAR INFORMATION

Renting a car at the Phoenix Sky Harbor airport is not difficult but prices vary so widely that it is nearly impossible to predict just what it's going to cost you.  Phoenix has also added many local taxes and surcharges to car rentals so be sure you get a 3-day quote that includes these "hidden" charges as they can add up to 25% on to your bill.

I suggest you click on to either DOLLAR or NATIONAL or ENTERPRISE car rental agencies and check their prices.   They seem to be the best all-around "deals" for a 3-day weekend rental for a mid-size car.   Remember that Sedona is 100 miles from Phoenix so you want a decent-size car for Freeway driving up Interstate 17. 

If you don't want to drive, the Sedona Shuttle has van service for round trips from the Phoenix-Sky Harbor Airport.  You MUST reserve in advance at (928) 282-2066.  They normally depart the Airport at 10 am, 12, 2,4, & 6 pm.   It takes 2 and a half hours.  They will take you to any local Sedona motel.  ACE-XPRESS is a door-to-door shuttle service from Cottonwood that will meet your flight at PHX and drop you at your Sedona motel.  Advance Reservations requested: (928) 649-2720 or toll free: 1-800-336-2239.  Web: http://www.acexshuttle.com 

I do not recommend sleeping in Flagstaff as the road down to Sedona is long, twisty, and difficult or at the I-17 Camp Verde exit as it's a 30 - 45 minute ride.  However, if you cannot find accommodations in town, try in Cottonwood (17 miles West of Sedona on Hwy 89A).      Cottonwood Chamber Of Commerce - 1010 S Main St - Cottonwood AZ  86326 Tel: (928) 634-7593 - http://www.cottonwood.verdevalley.com       


EIGHT (8) MOTELS in West SEDONA   (ROOM PRICES HAVE NOT BEEN UPDATED!!)

[Closest to 7 Centers School of Yoga Arts =  Barbara Marciniak's Seminar]

Sedona is a major tourist destination and a resort town.  Even though there are only 12,000 permanent residents in the vicinity, we average over TWO and 3/4 MILLION Tourists annually.   Spring Break in March starts our Peak Tourist Season.   Prices here are not inexpensive.  Many hotels post higher prices on Friday and Saturday nights.   Some will give a discount for Sunday.  Some have Internet discounts.   You must phone or go online for exact 2017 rates - We do NOT updated prices.  All rates will have state and local taxes added.   In general, Central & Uptown Hotels are more expensive than in West Sedona but there are exceptions.   Some of the inexpensive motels are small but clean and do not have Internet sites or toll free phone numbers BUT you get the best rates in this expensive town. 

West Sedona is on W. Hwy 89A and both major Grocery-store shopping centers (Basha's & Safeway) are located there.  It is up the hill going west on Hwy 89A from the Round-A-Bout intersection with Hwy 179 (turn left at the Round-a-Bout if coming into town on 179).   In general hotel/motels in West Sedona are a bit less expensive than Uptown (turn right at the Round-A-Bout if going north on 179) but that's not always true.    This list does NOT include all Sedona hotel/motels or Bed and Breakfast places; typically B&Bs are more expensive in Sedona than motels).
