We're flying in on Friday Dec. 7th & visiting family in the Phoenix area. Our timeshare week at the Sedona Pines starts on Sat. I don't know how late we'll be in Phoenix, but I'd like to get a start towards Sedona when we're done visiting late afternoon/early evening.
Are there a lot of hotels just off the highway between Phoenix & Sedona or will we have a tough time finding one if we just drive until we feel like stopping? I don't want to pass Montezuma's Castle/Well since I'd like to do that right away Sat morning on our way into Sedona.
Any small town or hotel in particular we should try for on the way? Don't need anything fancy, but would like clean! Will probably need to eat supper around there somewhere too...
Any suggestions appreciated!
