We really enjoyed the cabin feel and ideal location of this Best Western in Red River. We have stayed at other hotels in the area and were a bit skeptical to try a new spot - especially having our 10 month old son with us, but Mike made us feel right at home... can't say we have chosen to hang...

Not only can you hit someone on the lift with a snowball, we have defeated the ski area employees in numerous snowball fights! I hope you're here for the next one. Thank you for venturing us a try, and for being the kind of fun people who enjoy the lobby... Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner bestwesternriversedge@hotmail.com 575-754-2388

You know, I don't ski every day either, and still manage to have a good time as well. That's a fine compliment to receive this time of year from a non-skier - thank you very much. Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner bestwesternriversedge@hotmail.com 575-754-2388

The hotel room was ok the door did not latch had to block it with my bag. The breakfast cook was mental and created a embarrassing scene when I ordered so I left and skipped breakfast. I will not ever stay at that hotel again. worst hotel stay I have ever had.

I'm sorry to hear we didn't live up to your expectations, but please, if you can't get your door latched, report it immediately - the last thing I want is anyone dealing with a room that is not secure. I did check on it and both the latch and deadbolt worked for me, perhaps something had been caught under the...

Location, Location, Location!!!! The Best Wester Rivers Edge is about 20 feet from a great restaurant and Ski lift. We were greeted by friendly staff and were able to check in immediately.

I'm sorry to hear about your daughter's illness.

We have stayed here several times, both in the summer and the winter. In the winter, you are right by the ski lift and it's so convenient. In the summer, you can sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. It is near good restaurants, and your breakfast is always made to order just for you. We already have reservations...

Clean, comfortable, quiet rooms loacated adjacent to the best lift on the mountain. Breakfast is pretty typical except for the waffles, which are excellent, as was the desk service. Rear rooms are creek side, a nice setting. Wifi was mostly good, hi def tv a plus. Overall an excellent value.

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
