Driving distance/time to Tucson

According to Mapquest should take under 4 hours at distance of slightly more than 200 miles. However in looking at Sky Ranch site distance is listed at 300 miles. Wonder if those who have done drive have thoughts on time with moderate driving speed.

Gather from RedRox don't need to worry about weather delays in Feb. getting to Tucson since going down to desert area as don't want to risk missing hard to come by Tucson reservations.

Had booked at Kings Ransom for 1 night but total of $150 seems a little high as trying to keep within $100ish range and thinking of going the Sky Ranch route based on reviews here and qualities ie quiet, clean, nice view, etc appeal. Have seen Sedona Lodge recommended here as well. Wondering how far Sky Ranch is from town/restaurant area?

I live in Tucson, as far from Sedona as you can get and still be in Tucson. It takes me usually right around 4 hours, if no traffic delays in Phoenix. And that time is to the Sky Ranch Lodge, where we have stayed twice.

Sky ranch is on airport mesa, which is maybe a mile west of uptown. So, other than the (roughly) mile drive down Airport Road to 89, you are about as close to restaurants and other things as most places -- in total, maybe 2 miles from uptown.

I live in Sedona and need to go to Tucson four times a year.

four hours is about the right time. AVOID rush hour in Phoenix.. It can add one hour or more to your drive.
