La Posada has been the jewel of Laredo's hotels. Located at the wonderful old town square on the banks of the Rio Grande across from old Mexico. The two pool areas are lusciously landscaped and service amazing. The room rates are so reasonable too. The rooms are good sized but the one we were in was a little dated,, but clean. I prefer the rooms with a balcony overlooking Mexico, but at times they can be a bit noisy from bridge traffic and drug dogs that are housed nearby. But I Love being that close to Mexico! It is sad we no longer can pop over for a good margarita. But the Zaragoza grill makes a great margarita. Try the yummy Pancho nachos too. You will feel like you are in Old Mexico. We were there for George Washington's Birthday Celebration .. The Jamboozee... We had a ball!!! Will return!!
