? or ? provide kriging cross validation, including IDW. The leave-one-out cross validation RMSE agree with those in Geostatistical Analyst in ArcGIS. That is one possibility that you may choose if it fits your needs, but "best method" is only valid up to the data you have and the relative placing of the point locations. Surprisingly often, external drift does matter, and once other variables are taken into account, the residual spatial autocorrelation does not contribute so much.
