We enjoyed our stay but had to head out a night early. We had made a three day reservation but had to head back one night soon. The hotel manager said since we had a reservation we would still be charged for the night we did not stay. That's ridiculous, we won't be back!

You may call it lousy customer service - I call it staying true to our policy and being fair to all of our guests, especially those who would have liked to book your room for that last night, but were unable to do so because you apparently wanted to hold another night "just in case". If you'd had a true...

Hotel is the best in Red River NM. Don't waste your time or money on anything else. Best location in Red River, Best Value in Red River and Best Hotel Experience in Red River other than the skiing part.

Convenient to ski slope. Nice scenery all around hotel, especially if you stay on mountain side. Nice patio area along the mountain side and creek. Friendly staff. Price was affordable for being so close to everything in Red River.

The staff is wonderful. They actually cook a free breakfast for you. The hotel is right on Red River and only a few steps from the Ski Area. Great lobby, very clean rooms, a good value for this town. Hot tub was a relief after skiing all day.

We have stayed at several places in Red River, and this was by far our favorite. Only feet from the platinum chair and the Lift House, right in the center of town. Very comfortable and warm rooms. The breakfast in the mornings is a great time saver before hitting the slopes, and it is really good. The chef can make...

Such a great location for a night in the mountains! We enjoyed watching the snow makers and listening to the river. The ducks come up from the stream and rest in the yard and the deer walk through and hardly give you a glance. There is a beautiful trail just across the river and walking distance to everything in town.

We stayed at this motel 2 nights recently and enjoyed our stay very much! Our room was located on the second level and our request for a river side room was honored.

It is always a pleasure to receive good reviews in the off-season - in years past we would get dinged because the rest of the town was closed, but that no longer seems to be an issue.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the only franchised lodge in town, the River's Edge Lodge provides several amenities found nowhere else in Red River, such as air conditioning, free hot breakfast each morning, 42" HDTV's & HBO/SHO/250+ HD channels, and the assurance that we are meeting all of Best Western's increasingly stringent standards. We have the best location in town, with the Red River wrapping around the property's quiet, park-like setting (coming within 20 feet of some of the rooms). The Carson National Forest and a nature trail stretching for miles lie just across the river, and the Red River Ski Area's main Platinum chair lift is literally a few dozen steps away from our lobby's front door. The town's only grocery store and most of the best restaurants are similarly located within a very short walk. Come stay with the River's Edge and we will go the extra distance to make sure your every need is met. ... more   less
