Your Favorite Interstate Exits: I-40 in New Mexico

Interstate 40 provides a scenic drive across the state of New Mexico. I-40 passes through the cities of Tucumcari, Santa Rosa, Albuquerque , Grants and Gallup. Sometimes cities with a good choice of hotels are few and far between in this area, so be careful in planning where to stay. Attractions along this highway include the Sandia Peak, Bandera Volcano and Ice Cave, the Enchanted Mesa, the El Morro National Monument and the Zuni Mountains. (I never know where to stay in Albuquerque. I always make the wrong choice! Any suggestions would be appreciated!)

Please share with other drivers your experiences as to which exits are best for single travelers or anyone for that matter. Reasons for the choice may include the safety of the surrounding area, the availability of good hotels and restaurants or proximity to the interstate. Please make sure to give the exit number or a description of the location. For example, when I discuss I-40, I would recommend Exit 145 in Oklahoma City. Many hotels and restaurants were located at this exit and I felt safe in the area. This exit was very convenient for easily continuing west without the hassle of dealing with early morning rush hour traffic.
