The Best Western Rivers Edge was wonderful. It is in a beautiful location and the rooms are very nice. The staff is very helpful. I would stay there again. We had a room that faced the river and the view was absolutely gorgeous!.

This is a great hotel at the bottom of the lift for winter skiing and as it says on the River's edge. Nice patio next to the river for hanging out. The staff is excellent from the room service crew to the owner.

Very nice place to stay. Great rooms with comfy beds. The rooms are nicely decorated so it doesn't feel like a run of the mill hotel/motel room. Really close to the ski lifts. Friendly staff and great breakfast. Best waffles ever. Will definitely be returning.

I appreciate the compliments - we went beyond Best Western standards when we picked the beds and decorated the rooms, so thank you for the feedback. We plan on being even better for your next stay - see you then! Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner bestwesternriversedge@hotmail.com 575-754-2388

Great location to stay in Red River. You can walk to the chair lift. There is a river flowing directly behind the hotel and they had a fire for roasting marshmallows nightly. This location is within a short walk to many local shops and eateries.

This was our second trip and was spent in another (not even 3rd rate motel) because Best Western was booked solid for several weeks past our trip date. This is not a bad thing that they are always booked since people know it's the better place to stay. This trip would have been better if we could have stayed at...

I'm sorry to hear we missed you this year, but you are right about next year and especially Spring Break, it is already starting to book up again.

We all loved it. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and we were a stone's throw from one of the ski lifts. GREAT location. The kids loved the included breakfast (waffles, muffins, eggs). And we were close enough to the resort where we could walk from our hotel room.

Great place to stay! Clean and quiet rooms. Our room was on the river side and was just perfectly quiet. Ski lift, eating, grocery, coffee... all within a block walking distance. I am so glad I chose this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for sharing your story, that is one of the most meaningful reviews I've ever read!

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
