Really enjoyed our one night stay during a recent traveling vacation; enough so that we decided to stay there again on our trip back home! This is a small park with two levels so most spots have a river view. Not much privacy between sites, but the view made up for it! There seem to be longer term spots up...

Very nice right on river at a great price for locstion. Small but doesn't feel crowded. We just needed it for one night but extended stay would have been nice if we had time. Also has a boat launch for cruising river.

We checked in for our room. The manager upgraded us to the suite. Great view overlooking the river (if you didn't mind the walk up the steps.) The room was clean and there was nothing to complain about. We slept well. I would gladly come here again on a RT 66 trip. Very friendly staff.

The park is delightful if you can get one of the 7 sites (all pull-in for motorhomes) right on the river. We felt they were worth the effort. Those sites are sloped; ours required 4-high 2x6 boards under front wheels of our 40' rig, plus 8" blocks under front jacks. They had the wood. Your neighbors are cheek-by-jowl, but you...

We enjoyed our one evening here as we were passing though. Everyone here is super nice. There isn't much to do in this area but the staff will give you suggestions. We plan on day trips to hike, bike and visit a "ghost" town all of which we will do before noon if iWe were in a 24' Itasca Navion...

If you want a place where the people really care about one another. This is the place to be. The manager Rosie will do everything in her power to make your stay perfect. From potluck meals and movies under the stars. I can not say enough good things about Fenders. When my husband was taken by ambulance to Vegas and...

We decided to stay at this RV Park on our way to Havasu. Our 1 night turned into 2 because we loved the warm welcome and the friendliness of the entire park. We were greeted by Jean who welcomed us like family. Rosie and Kim were equally as welcoming. We loved this park so much we wanted to stay longer....

I booked two nights here over our Thanksgiving break based on the online description of this "resort" and several reviews I read. I don't see how the reviewers who gave this place good ratings did so. This was one of the worst motels we have ever stayed in! When I made the reservation online, rooms 5, 6, and 7 were...

My son and I stayed here for one night during our 66 trip in Sept 2016. The motel rooms are fairly basic but the location and friendly staff made this an enjoyable stay. We ate our dinner on the balcony and watched the sunset over the river. It is very similar to where we live so it was quite nostalgic...

Fender River Resort is one of those iconic Route 66 Motel along our Mother Road. It is suitable for a one night stay or an extended stay. You will be happy that you choose to stay here. Right on the Colorado River for a great view.
