Each year I drive from Dallas to Laguna Beach for the summer, and until a couple of years ago, would stay in Albuquerque because it's about the half-way mark. After visiting Santa Fe and reading about Mary Colter, I found out about La Posada and found the glowing reviews on TripAdvisor. In 2012 I drove 910 miles in one day, by myself, to stay at La Posada instead of Albuquerque. Every extra mile that day was worth it. I was greeted by this gorgeous Spanish-style oasis in the middle of the desert. I love the train-watching, art, gardens, food and margaritas in the bar, dog-friendliness, and the gracious staff. Plus it's an incredible value. I've now been stretching that first day drive 3 years in a row for La Posada, and each time it's just as fun to pull into the driveway as the last. I'll be back year after year, and have recommended it to numerous friends and family that make a similar trip on I-40. Allan Affeldt's labor of love is a true gift to quiet Winslow and travelers passing through this part of the country.
