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. Our room was clean and nicely decorated. The rustic furniture gave the room a cozy feel. The shower was great - one of the best! Towels were plentiful....

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. Thank you for letting me know about needing to get the receipt before 7am. I will make sure that the front desk lets...

My husband booked a weekend getaway for my birthday. We are touring our great state and have never stayed in Red River. We were pleasantly surprised with our motel. From check in to check out our stay was wonderful. So nice to be able to walk to just about every restaurant and downtown shopping. The fire pit on the little...

The Best Western motel was clean and the beds and pillows were very comfortable. The in room tvs are awesome! They had a hot breakfast with made-to-order eggs, bacon and waffles.

The hotel is located in along the river, very nice peaceful setting. However the walls are very, very thin. You can hear the people talking in the rooms next to you or sitting outside by the river. Very annoying if you're tying to sleep. The maid service is non existent, we were there for 3 nights and they never fixed...

I picked this place based on reviews from others and made a great choice. The rooms are very clean and roomy. We had a king size bed and the bathroom was huge, so we loved it. I would recommend getting a room on the front side if you're worried about noise, because it can get pretty loud in the back....

Autumn is also my favorite time of year in Red River, and we seem to be having an especially long one this year - the aspens are still bright even this late in October, but the snow should come soon. Thank you for taking the time to review us, and of course for your business, we certainly do appreciate that....

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
