The CY is located in west Sedona literally at the edge of town across the road from the Diamond timeshare resort & astride the high school. It's a good location in terms of easy access & less traffic. We've not stayed at this CY as we now live in Sedona ( actually 6 miles south in Village of Oak Creek ). But we did stop in one day to take a look at the property and it looks very nice.

There are 2 Hiltons in Sedona. The Hampton Inn is located @ 1.5 mi from the CY in the heart of West Sedona. We've stayed at this Hampton ( last time 2015 befre we move to AZ) & it's clean & comparable to a Marriott FFI product. A few restaurants in "possible" walking distance but one must safely cross at intersections due to traffic. So in this sense one is likely to need a car at either CY or HI. The other Hilton property is the Bell Rock resort located where we live in Oak Creek. Cheapest rooms there are $300.

When are you visiting Sedona? How old are the kids & do you intend to hike or take in regional sites? Either Sedona property has you 5-10 minutes from trails in uptown Sedona. Flagstaff is @ 45 miles north of Sedona & a good destination by itself ( & a bit cooler in summer as it's altitude is 3500 ft higher ). Grand Canyon would be 90 miles north of Flagstaff. Slippery Rock state park is a natural red rock swim park that fills up fast in summer & an alternative idea if you visit when temps are higher.

Lots of things to do here and never enough time, even when you live here
Enjoy your visit.

Thank you. We ended up staying at the Bell Rock Hilton and it was worth the additional cost compared to CY to have a larger suite. There are a few close restaurants that they will drive you to on a golf cart, but having a car was a necessity. Our kids are little so we did some light hiking and a visited a few of the sites. We need to plan more time in the future, it was an enjoyable area (even if it did snow briefly for one day)
