Winslow (Arizona)

Winslow is a small town on Route 66 in Northern Arizona. While the town itself is of limited interest, it is a convenient gateway to a number of regional attractions.


Get in

Winslow is on Interstate 40 (I-40), which follows the roadway of old Route 66 through much of Arizona. Several state and local highways connect the town to Phoenix, about 150 miles away, which is a major commercial air hub. To get to Winslow from Phoenix, you'll just have to drive.

Get around

There is no public transportation. There is one privately-owned taxi service and one hire car firm in Winslow.

Interior of the historic La Posada Hotel

Lodging in Winslow can charitably be described as "functional" - geared to the thousands of travelers passing by on I-40 who need a place to sleep and nothing more. The usual motels and motor lodges (Best Western, Days Inn, Super 8, etc.) cluster near the exits, with little to choose among them. For a bit of flavor of the old town and Route 66, try the La Posada Hotel.
