Proceed WEST on Sky Harbor Blvd. to the Papago Fwy (I-10 West).

The Papago Freeway will go north for approximately two miles then turn towards the west. After approximately four miles take the I-17 NORTH ramp (towards Flagstaff). Take I-17 NORTH to exit 298, Sedona/Oak Creek Canyon, Hwy 179, a trip of about two hours (depending upon traffic).

You will go through the Village of Oak Creek after 6 miles, then pass through an area of open forest land.

Drive to the next roundabout and circle back around, heading south on Highway 179. The Inn will be the first building you come to on the right. Pull in to the Inn’s front driveway to register and drop off your luggage.

Scenic alert!
You may want to make a few stops along the way to take in the beauty of Oak Creek Canyon. We suggest the Scenic Overlook before you start the descent into the canyon (shortly after the point where the speed limit drops to 35 mph.) Junipine Resort Cafe is the only place to dine in the canyon (other than Dairy Queen). The fare is simple, but good, and the have a lovely outdoor porch. Slide Rock State Park is a great stop if you have time to stay a while – get in the icy cold natural waterslide! Garlands Native American store is a worthwhile stop for superlative Indian jewelry, but you can stop at the Dairy Queen, also, where Native Americans have booths set up to sell their wares. Midgley Bridge is a nice overlook – later you may want to return here to start a hike into Wilson Mountain Wilderness.
