How long to get to Phoenix airport from Sedona?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Arizona in the fall. The last part of the trip will be spent in Sedona (probably at the Enchantment Resort). How long will it take to drive from there back to the airport in Phoenix?(Note: We would be traveling on a Tuesday, for traffic considerations.)

This is my dilemma ... Whether to spend 2 nights in Sedona, leave Sedona mid-day or so, working our way back to Phoenix and stay at an inexpensive motel/motor-inn right by the airport for our last night (so we can return the rental car and be right by the airport for an early flight back to the east coast);
OR...
Stay 3 nights in Sedona which would mean getting up very early on the morning of departure to get back to Phoenix, return the rental car, and get to the airport ... would probably take a late morning or early afternoon flight out if we opt for this option.

Can anyone familiar with traveling in the Phoenix area offer a recommendation? Would like to spend as much time as possible in Sedona, but am a bit worried about getting back to airport/returning car without hassle. Not sure what to expect in terms of traffic or traveling to the airport.
