"Best stay"

For the price I would send all my friends and family here to stay. The river view is really the best. We have stayed there twice now and have been pleased both times. This is the best place for getting to relax.

"Great Hotel Experience"

23/07/2018

At first glance the hotel seems unremarkable, but don't judge this book by its cover. The reception was warm, welcoming. and hassle-free. Room was on second floor, but staircase was easily climbed. We were hesitant when we found our room on the street side instead of mountain side, but no choice was available when the room was booked. The street noise was worrisome at first due to very loud go-cart track across street, but after closing room door the sound dissapeared. I've not stayed in a quieter room and the ambiance and decoration were exceptional. Beds were comfortable and linen was high thread count. Mini fridge and mocrowave provided as well as hair dryer, clothes iron and full sized ironing board. Shower provided good pressure and air-conditioner kept the room chilly. Breakfast included cooked to order eggs and waffles as well as cereals and breads. Lastly, access to town was easily walked with ski lift located right next door. All in all an extradoinary experience. I will stay here on my next trip to Red River.

We decided to stay am extra day, in RR. Our condo couldn't accommodate us so I chose the BW based on a friends experience. We were not disappointed.Everything was super and on short notice all was a great experience.

Great front desk service checking in and checking out. Room was great. Clean and quiet. The faculty was really nice. Out back there was a sitting area along the river (more like a creek) that had several tables and chairs and a fire pit. Gorgeous setting. The breakfast was great. Fresh eggs and waffles made to order along with your typical continental breakfast items. If we are ever back in the area we will stay here

"Nice place"

15/07/2018

If you are planning a quick trip to Red River, this is a great place to stay. It is walking distance from everything around town. It is right on the river which is nice. The rooms are well kept. They offer complimentary breakfast of waffles, bacon, and eggs along with cereals etc.

"Love this place!"

09/07/2018

We go to Red River quite often and always try and stay here! Mike at the front desk is great to work with, very friendly and helpful! They have a great breakfast each morning, a great porch on the back facing the river, a grill area so you can cook if you want, and sometimes offer live music in the large sitting area next to the river. My favorite place to go!! Highly recommend!

"Wonderful surprise!"

08/07/2018

The room was great— very clean, comfortable bed, clean bath n shower! Made to order breakfast by friendly host! We ate our breakfast by beautiful creek, gorgeous view! I highly recommend! There were tables set up by the creek/river to sit at n relax. It was one of our most memorable breakfasts!

26/06/2018

I was the last one to write a review! Here I am again. I cannot tell you enough how much we love it here, not just in Red River but at this Best Western. Mike Patel is amazing. The rooms aren't small, aren't huge but room and very comfortable. This is are down time before heading home to Texas after a long vacation! The river right beside the hotel, our room with the windows open falling asleep to the sound of the river! Feeding the ducks. Breakfast is amazing! We eat at several places with Cappos being #1, though this go around we found a nice place called Major Beans! Loved it! We will always be back! Thank you Mike!

"Cannot use Reward Points "

1
22/06/2018

We booked two nights for 7/25 & 7/26, Wednesday & Thursday, hoping to use a free night, earned by our Best Western Reward program. After booking, we realized we were charged for both nights. In trying to get it resolved, we called the property directly and were told no rooms were available. ( keep in mind, this is for reservations over a month away and during mid-week) and to contact the 800 “ Rewards” number. We then spoke with a rep at the 800 number who said she would put a note on our reservation to allow the free night and that we would only need to call the property directly to have them see the note & make the adjustment. When we called Rivers Edge, Best Western, in Red River we were told repeatedly that no rooms were available for that night ( even though I had an email confirmation of the ones I had booked and they confirmed they could see them, but insisted nothing was available in which to use our points ) Sadly, after staying here numerous times over the years we will no longer stay here. The rewards program clearly states : “no blackout dates”. Rules using points and free nights should be clear and consistent for each property within the franchise. On another stay, at this property, my husband became ill and we had to check out early, around 8 AM, we explained the situation and they refused to refund the any portion of the price of our second night. Given the circumstances and it being peak travel season, there is no doubt they were able to fill our vacated room. It seems at this property that customer service is non-existent.

This is the second year we stayed here...friendly people, great location and VERY clean rooms. They have an outdoor space int he back with a fire pit that overlooks a small stream with a couple of duck who like to be fed. I would recommend staying here is you are planning on visiting Red River, NM.

"Great little hotel on the river!"

Very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Absolutely beautiful location along the river, great staff, and clean, comfy rooms. Eggs cooked to order with morning breakfast is a nice touch. Convenient to everything in town. I would highly recommend this place!

Really great hotel. All the staff was so friendly and helpful. Very clean rooms and outside area was spectacular . The breakfast was GREAT! Late night, we sat in the back near the river and had a fire going.

"Nice view by the river water. Clean & comfy bed. Good location."

5
27/05/2018

I would stay here again. Friendly employees and a hot breakfast option. We wanted a king size bed, but none were available. The queen worked out ok and was a comfortable bed. The best thing is the location - the back side is by the water and very near the ski lift. Nice to sit by the river water on their patio chairs, see the ducks and fish, hike, and just relax. We stayed three nights and enjoyed our vacation.

"(Pam and Larry)The greatest staff. Mike you are an Amazing Manager! Bacon!!!!"

Rooms are well cleaned and the breakfast in the morning includes Eggs to order, Fresh Waffles and Bacon the best i have ever had and i travel a lot.

Our favorite place to stay in Red River sits along the river and has nice outdoor furniture so you can enjoy it. The staff is very helpful and kind. The rooms are just average but the location is great. It's only a block to the grocery store, park, and great eating places.

"Super fantastic place to stay"

Efficient and friendly staff. Conveniently located on river and next to ski lift and within walking distance to restaurants. This is a super clean property with well-appointed room décor. This is the nicest Best Western we have stayed in!

We have stayed at this location in Red River, NM many times and have always enjoyed it! Right on the river with a great sitting area to enjoy the river, wildlife, and fire pit (weather permitting). Breakfast is included, too!

We were so tired when we reached Red River. I was not aware that there was a Best Western there. When I spotted it, I was overjoyed. The check-in was quick. Our room was beautiful with a distinctive Southwest flair. It was just such a treat. We would definitely stay there again.

"Great place to stay!"

If you are in the Red River area and need a place to stay, do not pass this place up. The scenery is perfect and the service is great. The staff makes you feel like it is your second home. The Breakfast is very good. I can;t give enough praise to these guys! My favorite Hotel out there!

07/03/2018

This hotel perched on a little river, just a stone's throw from the chair lift with a crew of hardworking, efficient staff led by Mark and Kathleen was such a deal... I almost want to keep the news to myself for fear of drawing large crowds. Really good service. Will be our 'go to ' winter resort for years to come.

"Perfect Place"

21/02/2018

I was super impressed with this hotel. I personally don't think there is a better hotel in Red River. First, the room was perfect. Clean and well stocked. Breakfast was over the top!!! The grounds are picturesque. Everything you would want or need is within walking distance. The staff were great.

Very clean, comfy beds - right in the middle of town. Mike was great at check in - cant say the same for fellow that cooked our eggs- having a bad morning? No matter great motel right on the river. Would stay here again

"Great location to ski Red River"

4
12/02/2018

Location next to Lifthouse can't be beat for skiing intermediate and above ski runs at Red River. Eggs cooked to order for breakfast along with other breakfast items makes for a good start every morning. Only drawback can be if other guests are noisy - due to wood construction of the hotel it can interfere with sleeping in.

Our family continued our Christmas vacation going from Kansas, Colorado to New Mexico. What we found was very warm welcoming people and enjoyment atmosphere that we would recommend and plan on going again. Mike who is the GM, was very accommodating and give him a thumbs up, five star rating ??. Mike when you read this, we hope to see you again soon. Thank you for the great experience that you provided us there in New Mexico.

We enjoyed our stay here in Red River at the hotel. Mike is a great GM. And all the other employees that work there are all good people. They all aim to please. Courtney his wife Sydney( the owners) treat you like family. They get up early in the morning and cook you up a good breakfast. Get eggs anyway you want them. Mike's got a great group of ski Buddies. They were fun to hang out with. Can't wait to get back there from Houston. "Southern Comfort"

11/01/2018

This is the best hotel. We wont stay anywhere else in Red River. We wont ski anywhere else. This is the best hotel. I wish every owner and manager were this kind, caring and understanding. We go here every year. It is so much fun just to stay in the hotel lobby. You meet new friends every year just in the hotel lobby. Its the next best thing to ski in ski out. They take exception care of you. Mike is the best manager, so helpful and so nice. The housekeeping staff are wonderful also. Mark and Cocoa are super also. Courtney the owner, is amazing. You hardly ever meet the owners of an establishment. Its just amazing. This was our 8th year. We cant wait to go back next year.

There are two floors to this hotel, but no elevators. The breakfast area is small, but very clean and nice. The staff was very polite and accommodating. Will stay here again if we return to Red River! Closely located to Red River Ski.

We really enjoyed our stay! It is a pet friendly hotel that was very close to the ski area! The room was great and my daughter and I enjoyed soaking after a long day in the hot tub. The staff is super friendly!

We went during the New Year and for our daughters to go skiing. The hotel was steps from the platinum left and close to the main chalet. The attention was magnificent and so was the view, you could see the river in the back. The breakfast was delicious and we all loved staying there. The manager, Mike, was also very helpful with giving us suggestions on where to go and on places to eat. He was very courteous.

Best Place to stay in Red River. Great Location! Wonderful Staff! The rooms are always clean. They made us feel like family, including our dog. It is the only place we like to stay in Red River. It is right next to the slopes and in walking distances of all the town!

We were pleasantly surprised at the location of this hotel. It had a deck outside our room with table and chairs where you could enjoy your coffee and watch skiers go up the lift where you could hear the babbling brook at the edge of the property. In the evenings a fire would be lit in the firepit with chairs surrounding it to enjoy the outdoors. Pet friendly, great location to activities.

My wife and I just want to get away for few days to relax and the Best Western in Red River, NM is where it is at. Located at 8,600 feet above sea lever in northern NM, is the very friendly town of Red River. The Best Western is in a perfect location to walk the town. The day started with a great breakfast that included eggs to order and fresh waffles in the hotel and ended in a comfortable bed with all the amenities one could want. Thanks everyone.

"Excellent Stay"

Excellent customer service, they are always very helpful. Check in is quick Check out is quicker. Breakfast on point. Made to order. Rewards members are treated like Royalty. Amenities are great. Pets are allowed, we didn't take one but they provide it. If needed.

"Actual visit was October 2016/ A girl and her dog trip"

26/11/2017

I originally rented a cabin on the river at the edge of town and stayed there one night (barely slept- on the couch) before calling Best Western to see if they had a room. (The cabin was dirty and horrible- another story). I was marginally happy as I really wanted a cabin, but I was able to bring my dog with me, so I took the room and moved down into town. I am so happy I did; great customer service, friendly staff and clean rooms. I was lucky enough to get a room facing the river and right by the fire pit. Just me and my dog, and the staff was helpful in pointing me in the right direction for hiking trail for us, places to eat and shops that were open. I was there after the summer peeps and before the skiers, so the town was virtually empty. The hotel had workers from the mining of the mountain and a few stray travelers. The fire pit was a great place to hang out and relax and I met some very nice people. The breakfast in the mornings was great. The location is excellent- I was able to walk all through the small town. I prefer to stay in regional/local lodgings vs a chain hotel when I am somewhere like Red River especially, but this was a great experience and perfect for me and my travel pup. Great vacation, thanks to Best Western's staff and excellent lodging. 10/10! Thank you!!

"Really Awesome Hotel"

13/11/2017

Every time I go to Red River, NM, I choose to stay at this hotel! My grandparents love staying here, and when my husband and I decided to take a last minute weekend getaway trip, we decided to stay again. We were happy to see that the hotel is still a great place to stay! We love that they make waffles and eggs for their guests in the morning and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The views are also great from the second floor of the hotel and on either floor on the river-side. We will definitely return to this hotel the next time we decide to go to Red River.

"Great Little Find in Red River, NM"

30/10/2017

Stayed at this Best Western on a cross country trip in October 2017 and had a great experience. Clean and well-appointed room with small table outside on a deck overlooking a fire-pit area and river very close to the hotel. Staff was very friendly and accommodating from check in to our request for late checkout. Mike (night manager?) lit the fire at dusk and we cooked marshmallows with our daughter and met other visitors. Mark (day manager?) cooked tasty eggs, bacon, and waffles for breakfast (noticed that some other comments suggested the breakfast wasn't that good ... please know that you can salt and pepper them to your taste) and there is ample coffee, fruits, yogurt, toast, etc. There is also a very enjoyable pizza place (Capos) right across the street. To top it all off, a deer with 2 fawn strolled by the deck and into the river about an hour before dusk ... Great place for family and pets are welcome. We will be back again.

"A great stay"

29/10/2017

My wife enjoyed the location, stay, and hotel. We had a great time. will probably return someday. We landed in Red River after visiting Sante Fe and Taos. A nice drive thru the mountains and a very quiet little village. Thanks Mike!!

"Wonderful Setting"

5
28/10/2017

I know it's a Best Western but here you are on a fantastic wooden deck, beautiful mountain stream rolling by 20 yards behind with some ducks milling around. The Aspen trees are just changing colors, the air is a little crisp and there is a fireplace going in the yard between the deck and the stream. What's not to love. I wish we could have stayed longer. Not only that but in the morning, we had a very friendly gentleman cook us a breakfast, just how we liked it.

"Always a Pleasant Experience"

22/10/2017

We always stay at this hotel when we visit Red River & again this year we enjoyed the experience.. Courtney, Mike, Mark & Kat are friendly, accommodating & genuinely want their guests to feel welcome & comfortable. We love sitting on the deck outside our room enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of the river. Breakfast is always good thanks to Mark & Mike & our room is clean thanks to Kat. We look forward to our next visit to Red River & to staying at one of our favorite hotels .

Good staff with caring attitude. They went out of their way to be helpful showing good communication skills. We enjoyed our time relaxing by the flowing mountain stream. Excellent place to visit for those that enjoy mountain scenes and hiking.

"Wonderful get away "

18/10/2017

This was a wonderful place that was right by the river. They made breakfast every morning. Eggs and bacon and waffles. Also we could make toast or bagels or cereal. Great people there. Very nice and clean place. The only thing that I would have liked for them to have is a safe for the rooms. I would highly recommend and would definitely stay there again.

"Marvelous time!"

18/10/2017

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights here in a very comfortable upgraded room overlooking the burbling Red River. Mike Patel was a delightful host. The breakfasts were delicious, hot and made to order.

"Great Little Hotel in the Mountains"

15/10/2017

I stayed there the first week in October for 6 nights. Very, very nice comfortable place to stay right on the Red River. It is also next to the ski lifts. Mike the manager is a super nice person and went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect for my stay. You get cooked to order breakfast every morning which was very good and free! House keeping, front desk and all the staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a hot tub there as well as a fire pit out back on the river bank. Deer come down from the mountain and will eat out of your hand. I will stay there again!

"Another amazing stay!"

13/10/2017

There is no other place i would stay in Red River! The staff takes care of you like family. The rooms are pretty and the beds and pillows are amazing! It is right on the river with a small waterfall that is so relaxing to sit by. The breakfast is made to order each morning and included in the price of your stay. There is an awesome trail right across the river to hike, and the ski lift is in walking distance. It is great for all types of travelers, families, friends, couples, business, or solo. You will not find a better place to stay.

"This is the Four Seasons Resort of Best Westerns!"

12/10/2017

I am not a motel girl. Four Seasons is more my style. But there isn't one in Red River so Trip Advisor said the best place was this Best Western Red River. And were they ever right! We had a spotless room right on the Red River. They have a fire pit right on the river where we say and met fun people. Walked across the street to an Italian restaurant that was fairly good and then back to the hotel where there was a group having a wonderful time in the lobby. The owner, Courtney and the manager, Mike were there as well. What terrific, generous people. They treated us like family. We were stunned by there kindness and generosity toward us. The bed was very, very comfortable. Only wish: that they had a King bed and a sitting room. Otherwise it was just wonderful. We will return!

"We like it!"

12/10/2017

Stayed here one night recently. Very clean and comfortable & right by the river. Beds were great & the towels were nice & fluffy. Mike was on duty & I can't say enough about his ability to multi task. Check in was easy & our breakfast was made to order. He manned the kitchen like a pro, in spite of having a room full of hungry people he, never missed a beat on what each person ordered. We will stay here again for sure.

"Charming place!"

5
12/10/2017

Loved this hotel. Staff was great, very helpful. Cooked to order breakfast was wonderful and handled very efficiently by cook. The location in Red River is close to everything and would be perfect in ski season as it is only steps from a chairlift. Room decor was rustic, charming and perfect for the hotel's location. Very comfortable.

"The Only Place to Stay in Red River!"

We will only stay at the Best Western when visiting Red River. It's the perfect location and the staff is always so nice and helpful...especially Mike and Kat. THANK YOU for allowing our two well behaved dogs!

04/10/2017

Extremely clean!! Mike went beyond checking us in by helping us clean our car which had been sprayed by oil traveling from CO. He also served a cooked to order fresh eggs, bacon, and waffle the next morning. The room was huge and it overlooked the river. Clean!! Towels were fluffy and looked new. Wonderful! You will NOT be disappointed. I would give this hotel more stars if I could.

"Great Location!"

04/10/2017

We were lead to this place by all of the great reviews. We have been to Red River alot but have never stayed here. Not any more!! This place is well run and staffed. The room was clean and comfortable. They had a nightly fire in the outside firepit and cooked to order eggs for breakfast!! Mark and Kathleen were great staff.

"Always a great choice!"

5
03/10/2017

Mike was awesome and made sure my stay was enjoyable. This is a great location, right on the river, and one of my favorite pastimes was simply sitting on the balcony and listening to and watching the river run by. One of my favorite choices when visiting the area!

"Great relaxing place to stay"

30/09/2017

Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast made to order. Outdoor amenities were wonderful. Out door tables and chairs at each room and along the river. Gas BBQ's available and a fire pit was very restful in the evening. Bring your fly rod as trout were being caught - 8-12 inches. Great stay. We'll go back - this time with our fly rods!

"Great in Red River, NM"

30/09/2017

Overall, great choice for lodging. The "free breakfast" was exceptional, with staff making waffles, eggs to order, toast, bacon and sausage when you come in for breakfast. Of course, other selections were also available. The room was clean, neat, and had all the amenities you would need. Location with the Red River only steps outside our door was great, with fire pit and seating on river's edge for fun on cool evenings. Staff prepared a big fire for us each night. Fun to watch the ducks swimming along the river and coming ashore to "visit".

"Pleasant Stay"

Drove to Red River for several days of relaxation and pleasure. BW provided a most pleasant stay with all members of the staff presenting in a most professional but friendly manner, helpful, informative, kind.

"Would recommend"

21/09/2017

Overall the motel met our needs. It was clean and simple. Unfortunately, the bed was not the most comfortable. My husband likes breakfast so he appreciated having staff prepare eggs at his request along with the other breakfast options. It was quiet. Very conveniently located.

"Great place; friendly staff"

15/09/2017

My husband and I rented this place to stay for one night until the rest of our party arrived in Red River. This place was a surprising gem and I wish would could stay longer. Breakfast with Mike was awesome with made to order eggs and waffles! When I checked in, the man at the desk was friendly and speedy. Stay here. You'll love it.

"Yes. Stay here."

5
14/09/2017

We had not planned to visiting Red River, but found ourselves here anyway. This was the only place available with rooms. The staff was very friendly, the service exceptional and the rooms quiet and comfortable. We had a river view room and enjoyed sitting out by the river on our "balcony". It's located right next to a ski lift, so if you are coming for winter skiing, you won't find a closer location. I would certainly stay here again.

"Book Now!!!!"

5
13/09/2017

I'm so glad on my last trip in August, I decided to book for the multiple trips, I've planned to Red River in advance. It is tough enough booking travel or even driving from Austin. But I know once I reach my destination this winter ski season, I will be in the best location in the whole ski valley. I look forward to catching up with the locals and season pass holders that frequent the BW lobby for a drink and to discuss the thrills the Mt provided to them for the day. After some cocktails and a dip in the hot tub, it's off to a clean, comfortable bed and hit the reset button. Wake up to a hot breakfast and a 30 second walk to the lift and start your day. Miss my BW family and see you soon. Don't forget to book now for your winter and spring fun. Love ya Bert

Love the firepit. Came in later about 8 pm went tol a restaurant that was supposed to be open till 830. They told us they had already closed. Couldn't find anything else along main street. Finally noticed a pizza joint of main road. Supposed to be open till 9. Walked in She said that she thought they were closing up the kitchen. They did make our pizza, I think because someone called in an order at same time. SO if you come in later, don't come in hungry.

First time to stay at Rivers edge and we loved it. We requested a river view room and even though we checked in early they were able to give us the requested room. Room was very comfortable, we were able to leave the window open ,smell the fresh air and hear the river. We sat by the fire pit in the evening just enjoying the peaceful quiet. We even saw a couple of deer. The manager was very nice and we had a made to order breakfast in the morning. We only stayed one night but will definitely stay here for a longer visit next time.

Beautiful hotel. Rooms nice and comfortable. Breakfast was great! Loved the river access! However, as other reviews have said, walls are quite thin, and other guest can be heard. (Walking, talking, loud sneezing were our experiences). I totally expect this for the age and style of the building, but this can cause issues for families with small kids. Staff came to our door at 6pm to notify us the people below us had complained about our kids (super nice and professional about it). My sons had only been in the room for the last 30 mins. Before that it was only me and our crying 3mo daughter. I was a little shocked by this- 1. We travel A LOT and have never had any issues. And 2. They had only been in the room since 5:30, and half of that time they were eating seated at the table. I guess maybe the crying baby was a bother as well? I spent the next 12 hours with my kids quarantined to the bed. While I will gladly stay here with my husband, when we vacation with the kids it isn't worth the stress or hassle.

"One of many places to Stay in Red R"

29/08/2017

This place is clean and for the most part quiet. It is a dated Motel which could use a bit of a makeover. Parking can be problematic depending on how many ATV's and RV's consume available spots. Street parking is limited across from the property. Breakfast is included in the room price and is not bad. A good variety of eggs, waffles and cereals are offered. Seating is limited so timing is important unless you like sitting outside. This place is within walking distance to all town activities.

On duty manager Michael went over the top to do a terrific job. He helped guests with luggage while simultaneously handling incoming phone calls. My key would not work and he bounded up the stairs with new key card to be sure I could open door. He personally cooked terrific breakfast with eggs to order. Can't beat the service or the attitude.

Nice BW along the Red River. Stayed over one night enroute. Mike is awesome and will take care of you at breakfast. Room was clean and about expected for a BW class property. Location along the river is nice!

It had been years since we had been to Red River and we were fortunate to stay at the Best Western River's Edge when we recently returned. The manager (Mike Patel) went out of his way to ensure that our stay was most enjoyable. He provided truly outstanding customer service that you would expect at a 5-star resort. We look forward to returning to Red River again, every bit as much to enjoy Mike's hospitality as to enjoy the beauty of the area. A great place to stay in Red River!!

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights in July and enjoyed our stay immensely. The service was great and the room was very inviting. Made to order breakfast is a real plus. The hotel is located on the banks of the river, very relaxing. Great place to fish for trout for adults and children. Maintenance of room was tops. Mike Patel, a great manager.

we really enjoyed the staff and the hotel very clean rooms and great river access just wonderful our children loved playing in the water we were close to all the shops easy walking distant used the fire pit to watch the stars right next to the ski lift so we took the ride to the top will stay again have stay at other lodging in Red River but this is the best

"Great value, nice hotel."

25/07/2017

Given the location of this hotel, I thought it was a great value. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and my room was impeccably clean. My only complaint is that the bed, while comfortable, was just shy of meeting my (admittedly extremely picky) expectations. Sometimes chain hotels have beds that feel like they come from some factory that mass produces mattresses for chain hotels.

We stayed 7 day at the Best Western at Rivers Edge in Red River, New Mexico. They were 16 of us. Everyone one was externally friendly and helpful. We would not stay anywhere else. The staff at Riversedge go out of their way to make our stay comfortable and fun. The staff feels like family. We are looking forward to retuning next year with more family members.

24/07/2017

With temps at and over 100* at home, we, and several other Rivers Edge guests spent time in Red River, NM. The motel is just a few feet away from the river and the back patio area was well furnished for relaxing and visiting with the other guests. The staff was so helpful and guided us to several activities and eating places that were very much 'local flavor'. In the evening there was a pit fire and plenty of extra wood to keep it burning long into the night. In the morning we were asked how we wanted our eggs, and they were done just right, with bacon on the side. And what is better than a waffle made in high altitude! We chose a table near the stream and some of our new friends from another state joined us. We found the room quiet and clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again and have recommended it to others. It's just a few steps from a ski lift too.

"Just a comfortable, clean, friendly place!"

22/07/2017

We stayed for first time and really enjoyed it! Were not sure how this might go, but very pleasantly surprised. Rooms are comfortable, clean, and you are backing up to the river. Family friendly atmosphere with chairs by the river for relaxing, fire pit in evening, and an actually edible breakfast in the morn --- will stay here again! :-)

We enjoyed staying here and would definitely stay again! The location is great. The rooms are spacious and the breakfasts were good. The river is right behind the hotel and it is quiet at night. Each room has a microwave and mini frig. A wonderful place to stay!

"Great location and service"

5
20/07/2017

The location of this property is excellent. Situated right on the edge of the red river. Chairs and tables make it a great place to enjoy the river. In the evenings they build a fire and it is a great place to unwind. The rooms are very adequate. The made to order breakfast is something quite unusual for a place like this. The staff was very friendly and helpful in every way. I don't know what else you could possibly want .

"best "camping" experience....campfire outside, but all amenities of nice hotel!"

19/07/2017

Just what we'd hoped...a nice comfy hotel room with all the amenities with a "camping" atmosphere out the door....a campfire, a mountain river/stream flowing right beside the edge of the property with trout swimming by....perfect "hosts" running the place....large deck for all first floor river's edge rooms each with table and four chairs on deck. Campfire surrounded by tables(with umbrellas for hot sun or afternoon rain shower) and chairs plentiful. Loved this experience.

"Always great!!"

18/07/2017

My husband and I have stayed here every year we come up. I love, love being on the river, and the family atmosphere we experience every time we come. The breakfast is awesome, due to the guys who cook it! They cook to order eggs, and waffles, you can toast your own bread or bagels. The coffee is strong (which I like), and there is always other travelers waiting to share their favorite spots for fishing, shopping, or outdoor adventure. The price of a room is reasonable considering you're in Red River, and the pillows are comfy. I highly recommend this place, and I love that you can book it online, as some of the hotels in Red River only book over the phone, or via email.

"Always a pleasant experience"

We loved our stay at Best Western Rivers Edge. The room was perfect, very clean and comfortable. We loved that it was right along the river with that great patio area. We ate lots of meals outside listening to the river rush by. The fresh made breakfast in the morning was a great way to start the day. And we enjoyed finishing each day with a walk along the river and then sitting by the campfire at the hotel when we returned. The hotel is located right off main street with shopping, groceries, a park, visitor center, and restaurants all within walking distance. Our stay here was perfect!

We have not stayed in Best Western in years because of quality issues in the past. We didn't have a choice due to short notice and it was the nicest place of several I have stayed over several summer trips to Red River. Our room overlooked Red River (within feet of the hotel). It was clean and modern. Mark cooked us bacon, eggs, & waffles every morning for breakfast (aside from standard continental fare). We were right next door to the ski lift and walking distance to everything in town. We will definitely be booking there again!

This is a great hotel. Ask for a room facing the Red River. I've stayed here twice. Mike, the front desk attendant, cook, well everything is awesome. He knows every guest by name. The town of Red River has a lot to do, especially if you like the outdoors.

I was very pleased with the riverside location of this hotel. The breakfast is also wonderful, as they cook your eggs to order and will make waffles for you if you want. All breakfasts include bacon, too. I was impressed with the staff.

"First Best Western stay, and it was awesome!"

5
10/06/2017

This Best Western is very nice. The location is just off Red River where you can dip your feet and walk along the rivers edge. In the evening there is a fire pit to enjoy with plenty of chairs and tables. The rooms aren't as big but have everything you need. The flat screen televisions are big and have all DirecTV channels, a nice addition! The bathroom is small but acceptable. The beds weren't as soft as I am used to but didn't have any troubles sleeping. The walls were thick enough where I didn't hear much neighbor noise. Since my room was on the ground floor in the front, I did hear plenty of foot traffic. Breakfast was conducted a little different than what I am used to. Mike cooked eggs to order with bacon on the side. Everything else was a la carte. There was plenty of food but the space was tight. If the dining area was full, there is plenty of seating outside. Mike did a wonderful job at making sure everyone is taken care of and this is a very welcoming feeling from a hotel manager. Usually guests are lost in the mix but Mike went out of his way to make sure your stay was excellent. I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Red River!

17/05/2017

My wife and I were joined by her sister and her husband on a stay in Red River after being in CO for about 10 days. We absolutely loved the hotel and location in Red River. The breakfast was well above our expectations, the staff was outstanding, the amenities were great, we were right on the river with a great area to sit and watch the water, and the rooms were truly appointed well. But, the walls must be one sheet of paper thick. We heard the people in every room around us when they walked on the squeaky floors. Worse, we heard every toilet flush in all 4 neighboring rooms. It was very annoying. Without the noise, it would have been 5 stars.

"Great Place...Still!!!"

27/04/2017

Mike and Courtney as always are great! I think they try to make it feel like home away from home when you're there and it shows, making every effort to make sure you have what you want and get you what you need. The rooms are always nice and clean as well.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Best Western Rivers Edge. You were steps from a lift. We actually brought our folding wagon, because we had a little one in ski school that was a little farther up the road, but, we are talking 500-600 yards maybe. The room was clean, we were on the riverside, probably got to park 40 feet from our room. Breakfast had just a few choices, but, was good. The beds were very spacious. I wish the fridges were a little bigger in room, but, we had a drink one/replace one policy for drinks and kept something cold at all times. The staff was friendly, helpful, and doubled as edd and waffle cooks in the morning.

The room was stocked with hot chocolate, elevation medecine, hot teas, coffees, emergen-c as well as complimentary ponytail holders. We opened the windows in the bathroom and the cool breeze filled the room. The water from the faucet was cool and clean and delicious, and I never drink water from the faucet! This place was perfect! They also had a cafe that had great breakfast choices! Very close to ski valley! Would definitely stay again!

Stayed at this hotel for a few days beginning of November. It sits back a block from the main road right by the creek. Staff is very friendly and room was clean. We were pleasantly surprised to get a nice breakfast.. eggs to order, a few strips of bacon and waffle for breakfast. The guy that cooked it for us was great. One of the evenings there was a camp fire by the creek, surrounded by plenty of seating. As for the town, a lot of places were still closed. Skilift is right next to the hotel, but was not running yet. I would stay there again.

I stayed here with my best friend who was visiting from England for 1 night at the end of September. The rooms are very well appointed with great beds, bathrooms and every convenience right on your room. It was very clean, the bedding was good and the heat/air worked well. The staff were very friendly and informative and a special mention for their buffet breakfast which is great thanks to Mark the manager who will cook to order. We were very impressed and this will be our motel of choice if we return to RR again. The only thing to consider is they doi not have an elevator to the second floor rooms.

Room was much better than we remembered. We had a queen room which also had a double decker full bunk beds. Room would sleep 6 with no problem. Plenty of hot water. Room also had a full kitchen. Microwave, fridge, and all the pots, pans, and utensils you would want. Breakfast was good, and included cook to order eggs. Staff was easy to work with and a good source of local information. Last time we were here, 10 years ago, and just as good now as it was then. Will book here anytime we come to Red River.

My request was honored and I was given the perfect room. The desk clerk is also the cook for the "made to order" eggs for breakfast. The room and bathroom were spotless and bigger than usual.

We stay at this motel in Red River which is very popular in the small town of Red River. This motel seems to be booked to capacity most nights. From what we were told there are only two rooms in the motel that have a King size bed which is disappointing to say the least. We enjoy the good cooked to order breakfast this motel offers. The motel sits on the river and the motel staff has a fire pit which they start every evening after dark for the guests. Ample chairs are provided to sit in beside the fire pit.

"Series of misfortunes"

12/09/2016

For some reason I thought all rooms faced the river. Wrong. Our room faced the street and right across from us was a Go-Kart Track. So, instead of hearing the river, we heard go-karts racing. You could hear the go-karts a block away. So, don't stay here expecting peace and tranquility unless you make sure you have a room on the river side. On our first night, some guests had a party with hard liquor in the lobby and I was surprised the front desk staff person allowed it, though he might have participated. Afterwards some of the party-attendees stood outside talking. using profane language. On our second morning, the alarm clock in an empty adjoining room went off at 5:30 and rang for at least 45 minutes. I called the front desk to help but no one was on duty that early to help. Other than that, the room was nice and the front desk staff made fresh eggs to order at breakfast. There is no elevator in the building so plan on lugging your bags up stairs if you're on the second floor. There are a coin-operated washer and dryer for guests.

We wanted to come back to town and, despite driving a motorhome, we wanted to stay at the Best Western again. We were really happy to see Mike at the front desk. He's really friendly and works hard-he was up early the next morning making eggs and bacon for his hungry visitors. You can't sitting out back around the fire, watching trout being caught. The walls are a little thin, but we put the A/C on high at night and didn't hear a thing. The sound of the river helped us relax enough for an afternoon nap. Our riverfront room on the 2nd floor was clean and comfortable. We had no problems hearing the plumbing.

We absolutely love Red River and the Best Western is wonderful. Very nice rooms and right on the river! We stayed there by accident but turned out to be our favorite place on our trip. The staff is very nice and they make a great breakfast to order.The town of Red River is wonderful. Nice people and many things to do in town.

For the 4th straight year we spent Labor Day at the Best Western River's Edge in Red River New Mexico. What a jewel! This year we had 4 rooms booked on the River view side (we booked them before we left last year), and had our kids join us for 3 relaxing Days at the base of the mountain. The trout stream literally steps from your door. Imagine the peaceful sound as you catch yourself just standing there for minutes everytime you leave your room. The staff here is incredible. Mark cooking breakfest by order in the morning, then Mike coming showing up later to handle anything else you might need. All of the staff cleaning the rooms stop to see that you are doing well and greet you. We will be back next year and already have the rooms booked, but this time we booked them when we checked in. What a great place!

My wife and I took our 3 small children on a spur of the moment trip before school started. The hotel was great and in an excellent location. It was rather warm while we were there so the room air conditioner was nice to have. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay there.

Spent one night traveling through Red River on a road trip. Friendly and helpful staff who even cooks a breakfast for you as you order, a nice treat. Rooms on the back river side quiet and comfortable. Basically no complaints until we had horrendous plumbing noises about 11PM which woke us and continued. What a pain and pretty unacceptable. Would rate lower based on this but everything else OK

"Nice Property, Beautiful Setting"

22/08/2016

We stayed at Best Western Rivers Edge for two nights. It's situated in a beautiful location right beside the river, which is shallow and clear. We saw several people trout fishing during our stay. The hotel is well kept, modern and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They offer a nice breakfast with eggs cooked to order, waffles and bacon. There were some cold breakfast options as well. The lobby area is small but there are quite a few tables outside on the covered deck if the weather is agreeable to you. Restaurants and shops are close by and within walking distance of you don't want to drive. There is a ski lift right next door to the hotel that even runs in the summer for a scenic tour. Overall we were very pleased with our stay and will mostly likely stay here again.

"What a gem!"

This is a rustic hotel right on the creek with a view of the ski slope. The staff members are friendly and helpful. Breakfast choices are limited but the waffles and eggs are cooked to order and the coffee is great. Will definitely stay here again.

"Nice but noisy"

11/08/2016

This Best Western is nice, located next to the river. Rooms are nice, clean and comfortable but noisy! In our room, door closed, we could hear conversations by the river. We heard toilets flush and showers running from all adjoining rooms. For the price, I would expect a little less noise.

"Comfortable, Convenient, and Well-Managed Hotel"

08/08/2016

This small hotel, located on the banks of the Red River (actually a scenic mountain stream at that location), is an excellent home-away-from-home for visitors to the area. The staff is friendly and accommodating, the rooms are clean and appropriately appointed, the breakfast of eggs, waffles, or cereal (included in most rates) is convenient and economical, and the location is an easy walk from all portions of the Red River community.

We arrived early and Mark agreed to get us checked in anyway as our room was ready. It was raining outside so saved us trying to find shelter elsewhere. That was a huge plus. The rooms were decorated nicely, very clean and the beds were comfortable. We will definitely book here again when we return to Red River. Great location, service and rooms! Oh yea, they are pet friendly!

"Pleasant experience!"

30/07/2016

This place sure was hopping! Two large groups of friends/family came and went while we were visiting. The accommodations on the outside rivers edge and patio seating managed to fit everyone and comfortably! There's a Firepit out back, not sure where the wood came from though. Staff working the desk and housekeeping were very friendly. Breakfast is served from 7-10. The waffles were excellent!!! No fruit but made to order eggs, bacon, yogurt and toppings, and cereal. Great place to eat when you can't get a seat at a local breakfast restaurant. Keep in mind there isn't an elevator on the premises so hauling ice chests and luggage up and down can be tricky if you aren't used to elevation. We stayed in a two queen bed room with a view of the valley. If you want a river view you need to reserve about a year in advance, that's what the front desk told us. It would be well worth it to reserve that far in advance. The first level rooms had iron tables with chairs outside them. The tranquil sounds of the river is just a stones throw away. Parking is available around the hotel as well as a gravel lot right next door. The town is very small, so parking your vehicle and walking where you want to go is a great option! Plus, parking is hard to come by at the stores and restaurants.

"Great time!"

28/07/2016

Typical double queen room. Very clean. Some rooms have deck/balcony overlooking the river. In the evening, a few guests made a campfire down by the river. It does get cool in the evening. Breakfast included made to order eggs, bacon and waffles! We had breakfast on the very large deck overlooking the river. Right next door you can take the ski lift for a beautiful ride up/down the mountain. There are refreshments and hiking available up top. We took the "nature trail" that runs behind the motel along the river and up the mountain and back along the road. Great hike. There are a lot of family activities for all ages. Very laid back town. Great value for the money! P.S> This is a "ski" town. the Motel is located at the base of the ski lift.

This is the only place we stay at when we travel to Red River NM. It has been our go to spot for 6 years now. Mike and Mark will go out of their way to make your stay relaxing.

We loved our stay at Best Western Rivers Edge. The hotel has been remodeled. The rooms are clean and updated. The breakfast is cooked fresh. The location is excellent. The river runs behind the property. The ski lift is right next door. The go carts are across the street. The community center is across the parking lot. Many stores and restaurants on the main street of town are easy walking distance.

"The Best Stay Ever!"

22/07/2016

This quaint hotel was located on the river and our room actually faced the water which was a merry clear water stream that warranted wading had there been time. Because we were going to be a late arrival, the manager taped an envelope to the door with our key. All the handicapped spots and rooms were full and it happened we were in a room on the second floor. There is no elevator. As I am not in a wheelchair this worked out. The upstairs floor had a terrace that ran the extent of the building. There were picnic tables outside with a fire pit in use. There was a easy comrade there and is more akin to a ski lodge in looks and extremely cozy. There was a fridge in room and free wifi. There was more than a continental breakfast but offered a grill and a gentleman that made us two perfect eggs over easy, bacon and a marvelous freshly made for us waffles. Divine breakfast, hot and fresh. Ski lift to ride up mountainside at the hotel. Tourist sights and shops all in easy walking distance, even for me. Stairs for me with cane were rather a drag but took my time. I'm actually ready to go back there for a stay with lovely and well appointed features such as built in fridge to match decor in the cabin..much nicer than a regular hotel room, it was clean, very comfortable and fun. I recommend this place to anyone passing by this quaint area.

"Totally Renovated Kitchenettes"

22/07/2016

My husband and I recently stayed at Rivers Edge. The only available room was with bunk bed, queen, and kitchenette. At first I was doubtful. When we walked in and saw the beautifully renovated kitchenette with granite, tile, trendy new cabinets, updated appliances, updated bath, beautiful fresh paint colors, and a nice bunk to spread all our luggage out on, I knew we had made the right decision. There are only 2 kitchenettes available. We stayed in 219 which faces the street and is kinda of dark. I think 201 would be a better choice because its location is better and it has an extra Window providing more light. The other great thing about BW Rivers Edge is Mike, the manager. This guy is "Johnny on the Spot" if you need absolutely anything. We needed 2 drinking glasses because for whatever reason they were missing from the kitchenette. Mike ran to get them for us out of the breakfast area's dishwasher. He is just about always at the front desk or walking around the property. In fact, he lives on property. LOVE IT!!! Makes me feel very safe to know that the manager is there 24/7. We walked around and looked at all the other places. This one is the best out of what we saw because it backs up to the river and is right around the corner from the lift ride. In fact, we were so happy with everything that we booked again for next year before we left.

This place has a perfect location, a nice breakfast, clean rooms, friendly, helpful staff,. Call early to the motel an get a room on the creek side. They also take pets which is a plus for us. I felt comfortable letting the kids go around the property on their own, they are 10-12. They book up very early for this time of year, July was a very busy month. The parking is very good, they have laundry facilities, I did not use them. Mike at the desk is excellent in assisting you. Breakfast has eggs, bacon, cereal, bagels, etc. there is also a coffee pot, small frig, microwave, and a table in the room. The back side also had little tables and chairs outside your room.

Our family had the pleasure of staying here for Spring Break and we loved every minute of it. This place is great, the rooms are just as the pictures on the website, wifi worked great, breakfast was not your typical continental breakfast it was much better. Our older kids were able to walk right next door and get on the lift that went up to the top of the mountain which was very convenient. The staff goes above and beyond. They have washer and dryers avaliable. You can walk to the shops, restaraunts, and anywhere else you want to its on the main road going through town. We can't wait to stay here again.

"Perfect Red River Location"

12/07/2016

First, nothing is fancy in Red River; that's not why you come here. But, it's a beautiful & peaceful place. By that standard, BW Rivers Edge is likely the best place to stay in the entire town. Get a river-view room; we prefer the first floor. It's is literally right on the river (creek but, big enough to fish in). It's quiet & peaceful there, and they have chairs/tables & a fire pit to relax and enjoy the view. It's also very close to the ski lift. This hotel is very well managed. Everything works, they're super-friendly, very efficient, and just plain nice folks. We interacted with Mark, who's a great guy. I'd stay here again if we every return.

"Great Family Setting"

An average hotel which, aside from the strange relationship the hotel seems to have with Travelocity (I had rented three rooms, but found I only needed two, so I gave one away at the request of the hotel, but got charged for three anyway -- answer: Travelocity had no way of changing their charges), had all the necessities covered, though the beds were a bit worn down. It's a rustic town and this hotel fits in with the character of the town. Negative points for no high chair or booster seat in the breakfast area.

Mike (don't know his last name) but he always makes us welcome and remembers us each time we return (our 5th time since 2011)! Mark makes fresh eggs and bacon to your liking! The rooms are immaculate and very comfortable. We always get river side and sleep with the windows opened! We feel at home there! CANNOT BEAT THE VIEW!

"Perfect Location--All Else Near Perfect"

27/06/2016

This is probably the most sought after motel in Red River. One can not find a better location than right alongside the Red River and the ski lift. One unusual feature of this place is that virtually everything is in perfect working order. Maintenance and housekeeping is so good that we found no lamps that did not work, no burned-out light bulbs. no malfunctioning sink, toilet or shower, comfortable beds, clean floors,a big TV functioning perfectly. If it weren't for a sink faucet that was tricky to adjust and a snap unhooked on a shower curtain (!), this place would be perfect. In addition, Mike manages the place superbly(with the friendly assistance of Mark) and fixes a quick made-to-order breakfast.The breakfast and lobby area is small but efficiently designed. Instead of lounging in the lobby, there are chairs and tables around the first floor deck plus several of these in a lovely grassy area between the motel and the river. A hot tub and some grills are also available for additional outdoor pleasures. What more could one expect for a very reasonably priced mountain inn?

"A Friendly Place"

26/06/2016

Perfect location along the river. Had a room where I could open the window at night and go to sleep listening to the river. Very friendly host at check in. The building is a bit dated but location makes up for that. You could walk from the hotel to down town. Makes for a nice stroll.Nice fire pit at night by the river.. The only down side was the office did not open until 7am. We could not check out or get some fresh coffee or something to eat for the road. Just left the keys in the room.

My wife and I have visited Red River on several occasions over the years. We have had the opportunity to stay at several locations throughout the city. We both have come to enjoy the location, friendliness and accommodations that the Best Western provides for us during our visits. The room is clean. The bed is comfortable. The bathroom is roomy. The staff if friendly and the location centrally located were you can walk to any part of the city. The laid back approach can be easily embraced in Red River. The coffee in the office kept us going throughout the day. The gentlemen in the front office offered to cook us eggs every morning. We conversed with several people riding motorcycles and from the great state of Texas.

We were attending a wedding in Red River and needed accommodations for 2 nights. The location was ideal and our room was on the river side. I loved listening to the roar of the flowing river. Mark made our included breakfast each morning and I had perfectly scrambled eggs and a waffle. Everyone gets bacon, so no need to ask. The only negative was the group down from us that stood outside their doors and smoked and it hit us every time we stepped out. Also, we were downstairs and the board walkway on the river side vibrates into the room each time someone walks by. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

The room was well appointed, the bed comfortable, the breakfast way above average. What made it even better were the extras of well thought out public places: comfortable chairs and fire by the river's edge, barbecue grills with tables and chairs on the deck, hot tub. Great for families and even if you don't use them they add to the "package."

We were needing a relaxing place to just get away for a few days. Red River NM was "off season" and so quiet. It snowed every day we were there but they kept the roads clear. The Best Western is right on the river with a wall of pine trees and the chair lift just across the river. Soooo beautiful!!! An outdoor fire in the evening with the sound of the river is most relaxing. Once we get to town, we park the car and walk everywhere the entire time we are there. It really is the perfect get away!

16/03/2016

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 Best Western and now we know to plan ahead to get our reservations to the place of our choice...Best Western. The room was on the river and we had a beautiful view and enjoyed the staff's courteous, at home spirit. The breakfast was great (and furnished with your lodging) and custom cooked to order. Better yet it's only a few steps to get it and no long waits or lines to mess with. It was peaceful and the guests were all like family and friends. Most of them are frequent visitors which again tells us we need to beat them to our next reservation so we can "freeload" at the staff's expense...it was just that good. 5 star class where you might not expect it. We'll be back!! The Hill's from Amarillo

I will always see this place a bit differently after reading your review, and I appreciate that. Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner [email protected] 575-754-2388

"Can throw a snowball to the ski area from this location!"

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 out in a hotel lobby before this trip. In the evening, the couches and fireplace make it a great spot to talk with other travelers. In the morning, the space transforms into a breakfast area with really tasty, made-to-order breakfast! We will be back soon for our first summer trip to Red River!

bwriversedge, Owner at BEST WESTERN Rivers Edge, responded to this review
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 [email protected] 575-754-2388

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this hotel , we don't ski but enjoyed watching the others on the ski slopes from our balcony. The free breakfast was awesome, they have a wonderful cook. BEST WAFFLES ever!

bwriversedge, Owner at BEST WESTERN Rivers Edge, responded to this review
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 [email protected] 575-754-2388

"Bad staff"

19/02/2016

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.

bwriversedge, Owner at BEST WESTERN Rivers Edge, responded to this review
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 door. I do apologize for the breakfast attendant, he is a little hard of hearing and I believe there must have been some kind of miscommunication between the two of you. I wasn't there, so I will forever give you the benefit of the doubt, but if you're interested in his side of the story, it was that you wouldn't give him an order but kept him pinned him up against the counter and wouldn't back off, and he felt threatened. I did hear from another customer who said you left the breakfast area smiling, which they thought was odd - perhaps you were making a joke that was misunderstood? In any case, I expect my employees to be able to handle such a situation with patience, but I assure you this does not happen everyday. I promise you if it does happen again, I will go back to serving breakfast, and I don't faze easily. Thank you for your input and please know that I do take it seriously, Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner [email protected] 575-754-2388

We just returned from our first trip to Red River and we will be back! the Best western was fantastic. Great location for skiing! The staff was wonderful very friendly and breakfast was a great addition! The sound of the water running in the river is just icing on the cake! This is the BEST place to stay in Red River!!!

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. Our room was clean and tidy, but had some issues with the heater. Staff put in a space heater which managed to keep the room warm and toasty. The Breakfast at the Best Western was another big plus. They have a cook on sight who makes eggs, waffles and bacon at guest requests. The breakfast alone was worth a good 25.00 and was included in your stay. Would definitely stay again. Mike the manager was a hoot!!!!!

bwriversedge, Owner at BEST WESTERN Rivers Edge, responded to this review
I apologize for the heater - we replaced the control board and it is working fine again. We always keep a spare of literally everything in the hotel on hand so I promise we will never leave you in the cold, and I'm glad to hear everything worked out well. Thank you for taking the time to review us, and for being so understanding - customers such as yourself make our lives better... Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner [email protected] 575-754-2388

We got to Red River right at 3 pm which was check in time. Check in at desk was a breeze. Housekeeper that was in corridor by room was very helpful. She did her best to make our accommodations wonderful, even gave us tips for best places to eat when asked. My daughter got ill and we had to leave early, we were refunded a portion of our stay. I was not expecting this but person at check out desk was very nice and understanding. I don't think we got the AAA rates we should have for time we stayed but we're very thankful for not being charged for additional days. Breakfast was great and we would love to come back! (I will say room had a strong odor, almost like some type of cleaner and we all had headaches when we stayed in room for any length of time).

bwriversedge, Owner at BEST WESTERN Rivers Edge, responded to this review
I'm sorry to hear about your daughter's illness. I remember feeling bad the first couple of days I ever spent in Red River, we are just barely at the elevation where some people get mild altitude sickness, and I had come straight up from sea level in Galveston. Unfortunately by the time some people get acclimated it's usually time to go home. I've also learned that aspirin and lots of water usually do the trick. We try to use the mildest cleaners possible, both for our guests and housekeepers, who can develop hypersensitivity to cleaning chemicals. I think you might have had a room with an oven, and we don't usually need to use oven cleaner (and it should be in the off-season if we do). I've also found burned microwave popcorn can put out pretty serious gases, but I will check into this. Thank you for letting me know - I promise your next room will be odor-free, and we hope to see you soon. Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner [email protected] 575-754-2388

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 to come in the spring!

"A good choice for skiers"

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.

"AMAZING Place!"

20/01/2016

My husband and I needed a place to stay for one night and so I found the Best Western. I am so glad that we stayed here, this place is awesome. We checked in about 7PM and the guy at the front desk (cant remember his name) was so nice! He greeted me with a nice smile and told me to make sure and come down for breakfast. We stayed in room 116 (I believe) and the view was great! The room itself was nice with a big bed, tv and mini fridge. We woke up the next morning and it was nice to have a great view of the river and see the snow. Next was the best part.... We went to go eat breakfast and there was a man down there and he asked us what we would like. So we said a waffle and he ended up making us waffles, eggs and bacon! It was delicious and he was so nice. I would def stay here again and again. Good job Best Western!

Awesome staff? CHECK! Super clean rooms? CHECK! Really short walk to ski lift? CHECK! What else could you want when staying for a ski trip? Not much. But...they do offer more!!! Breakfast includes fresh cooked to order eggs and waffles, bacon, toast, cereal and other options. Thanks again for a great 5 night stay!

"HANDS DOWN, BEST PLACE!!!!!!!!!!"

11/01/2016

WHERE TO EVEN BEGIN? I don't normally take the time to write reviews but this place surpassed all expectations possible, SO I HAD TO! I stayed at Copper King last year and it doesn't even compare to Best Western Rivers Edge. Starting with the fact this hotel had the cleanest and most relaxing rooms, not to mention the friendliest cleaning staff. The views from this hotel are absolutely beautiful and incomparable, you have the Red River itself running right beside the hotel which is so relaxing to listen to sitting on the back patio!! A huge plus is you can literally walk 10 feet and get on the ski lift, and start your day! The breakfast is outstanding here, and cooked FRESH per person!! And last but not least the STAFF!! They are seriously overly accommodating and make your stay here at Best Western feel really special. Mike and Courtney are AWESOME, their customer service is REMARKABLE! I've never stayed anywhere (Hiltons, Marriott's, Sheratons) that gave me the customer service this hotel did! I will defiantly be returning to Red River next year and won't even have to think twice about where I will be staying. I will hands down be spreading the word to friends, family, and co workers who plan on taking a trip here in the future!!!!

"2nd stay and already booked for next year"

11/01/2016

My husband began staying here several years before he talked me into it. He would bring our daughter to ski just the 2 of them each winter and we would also take a family trip. I always wanted a condo or a house. He finally convinced me to just check out the grounds. I was so impressed and agreed to come back and try it. I am so glad I did. We just finished our second family trip with Best Western. Mike goes above and beyond in all areas to provide the very best customer service. (and he cooks a GREAT breakfast) Courtney is around each day to say hi and make sure we are all having a great time. The rooms are big, the staff is AMAZING, it is very clean, and so close to the lift that my kids wear their ski boots and carry their own ski's...BONUS!!! Just like my Title says we have already booked our rooms for next year. You will not regret this choice!!!

Had a wonderful time, hotel was clean and the service was great. We wanted a hotel with a hot tub and a great view, this hotel had both. The hot tub was clean and the view was amazing. Breakfast was also great, couldn't have choose a better hotel.

"Ringing in the new year"

04/01/2016

I've been coming to Red River since 1975, first with my parents and now with my family. The past 4 years we have made it a tradition to ring in the new year at BW River's Edge. Over the past 4 decades, I have stayed at almost all accommodations in RR and hands down the owner Courtney and manager Mike, have made it the nicest, cleanest place in Red River. Not to mention they have a great made to order breakfast(great job Mark), they steps away from the ski lift, their hot tub is perfect, they are on the river. They have maintained a great family friendly environment and we look forward to our next visit. Looking forward to seeing old friends we have met over the years and meeting new ones. look no further, you won't find better place that is clean, friendly and affordable. See you guys soon.

"Nice place lousy customer service"

02/01/2016

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!

bwriversedge, Owner at BEST WESTERN Rivers Edge, responded to this review
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 emergency that required leaving early we certainly would have worked with you, but instead you decided to try threatening us with a poor review if we didn't accede to your demands. Turns out you took the wrong approach, because I will gladly absorb a bad review rather than give in to blackmail. We cherish our TripAdvisor reviewers and hope to maintain a listing on the website, but we will not give them preferential treatment over others, as it is unfair and only corrupts the process. Thank you for calling us a "nice place" in your 1 star review (now that's what I call "ridiculous"!). It really brightened my day to see once again that our employees have excellent scruples, and refuse to yield to extortion.

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 some great bacon and eggs. The people at the front desk are very friendly.

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.

"Very pleasant stay!"

5
01/11/2015

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. Our bed was comfortable and the room was quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed the proximity to town and enjoyed our walks up and down the main street. We especially enjoyed seeing the deer that were wandering the grounds near the Visitor's Center in the evening. "Mike's Breakfast" was great! The breakfast area was a bit crowded but if it had been warmer the outside tables could have been used to alleviate the crowding. Mike was very pleasant and accommodating when he checked us in the first night, when he prepared breakfast and when he tended the fire pit outside! The only suggestion we would make is for the availability of overnight receipts or office staff in the early hours. We wanted to leave early but stayed until 7 to obtain our receipt. This was just a minor inconvenience though and we would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.

bwriversedge, Owner at BEST WESTERN Rivers Edge, responded to this review
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 everyone know upon check-in that for early morning departures, we do have the capability to print receipts the night before, and we can also send them by e-mail anytime. I hope you had a great trip home, and thanks again for coming! Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner [email protected] 575-754-2388

Overall I give the experience a 95. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very professional and knowledgeable about the local shops and restaurants.We loved the fire pit and sitting area right on the river. The bathroom was beautifully decorated with tile and the shower had an endless supply of hot water. The only two things I can comment negatively about is the room was a little noisy and the door had a little gap when it was closed. Can't wait to go back!!!

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 beach with the river gently flowing made for a perfect evening. We decided we will be back for many more wonderful weekends!!

In September my husband & I spent 5 wonderful days & nights in Red River. We stayed at the Best Western River's Edge for the third time & we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. We love the convenience of leaving the car at the hotel & walking where ever we want in town & we really enjoy sitting on the deck outside our room, soaking in the beautiful scenery. As always, Courtney, Mike & Mark were friendly & courteous & made us feel very welcome. Our room was clean & comfortable, thanks to Keri in Housekeeping. We enjoyed visiting with "Super Breakfast Chef" Mark,& meeting his wife, Kat. My husband & I go on a lot of road trips & Red River is one of our favorite places to visit. The BW River's Edge is also one of our favorite hotels because of the nice accommodations & excellent service. We are looking forward to returning next year.

"Nice location"

13/10/2015

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 our beds or cleaned the restrooms. The breakfast is ok limited choices, cereal, eggs or waffles. The desk clerk has to fix your eggs or waffles. They don't use any type of plastic gloves on their hands to make your food. Picks everything up with their fingers and no water facility for them to wash. Watched the clerk go to the front desk to check out a customer then go back to the kitchen and grab some bacon out of the microwave and put it on a plate with eggs. I ate cereal. The rooms have been remodeled however the hotel is still old and the wiring is also old. They kept having power surges during our stay and one of these surges fried my cell phone. Be prepared to take food to either cook or eat sandwiches. We went in October to see the leaves change and most restaurants and stores are shut down for the season.

bwriversedge, Owner at BEST WESTERN Rivers Edge, responded to this review
I'd like to thank you for your review, and address your concerns. Whenever you have any kind of problem while staying in a hotel, please let someone know - that's what we're here for! If you had let us know your room wasn't serviced the 1st day, I can promise it wouldn't have happened a 2nd or 3rd day. This could have also been the result of a "do not disturb" sign on the door - the housekeepers go to each room once each day and if they see this sign, they will not service the room. As for the breakfast attendant not wearing gloves - as you observed, all they are cooking are waffles and eggs - the waffles are removed steaming hot using a waffle fork, and the eggs are cooked with a spatula. Human hands never touch the food before it is served hot to you. It's a lot cleaner, safer and better-tasting than the usual buffet style breakfast, and I hope you were not turned of from trying breakfast. I really can't explain what happened to your phone, we've had no power outages recently, and our wiring is not old. In fact, we replaced every electrical outlet in the hotel just before this summer, and the plugs by the nightstands are surge-protected. A fried phone is something I would think you'd also want to bring to the attention of management before you left. I've found a lot of times a phone can cut out due to something as simple as a loose battery, or even lint in the recharging receptacle. In short, I do believe our best customers are the ones who complain, but the even better customers complain while they are here, because we will do everything in our power to make sure they leave happy. I hope you'll give us another try and put that promise to the test... Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner [email protected] 575-754-2388

"Perfect Location"

13/10/2015

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. The 2 guys that run it are really cool and make eggs to order, bacon and waffles every morning. There is a beautiful stream that runs out back and everyone sits around the fire pit at night. A deer came up our last night and ate out of hands. She was so sweet. We met lots of people and had a great time!

Once again we had a wonderful stay at River's Edge. We relaxed all weekend, spent time by the river, had a wonderful time with family and enjoyed the town of Red River. The staff at the motel are helpful, friendly, and always available. We love this motel because it is dog friendly and everyone treats our old girl like she is special. We highly recommend this great little motel on the river. The grounds are beautiful - especially during autumn.

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.

spent one night here in early October. our room was clean and comfortable. the hotel is on the river's edge and we enjoyed a nice fire out there as the sun went down. plenty of places to eat within walking distance and cooked breakfast in the morning. I have to mention that Mike, the manager, ran the front desk, cooked and served the breakfast, built the fire, etc. what a hardworking guy. I would stay there again.

We had a riverside room on the second floor. The sound of the Red River and the fresh air right outside was so nice! Room was clean and pleasant. Frig, coffee maker, and coffee supplies on hand. Best of all, this hotel has wonderful management. "Breakfast with Mike" was one of the highlights: eggs to order, bacon, waffles, and lots more to get us all going in the morning. Friendly, helpful, and engaging staff with lots of tips on where to go. We got a 10% at the neighboring Italian restaurant, Capo's, another tip from Mike.

We spent 2 nights at the Best Western, Rivers Edge and found that this property exceeded our expectations. It is an older property that has been modernized very nicely. The room we were in had a lovely view of the river, and we found it to be very comfortable, clean and quiet. I feel like the management is trying to run this property like a B&B. Breakfast was included and included eggs to order and waffles. A very nice breakfast and totally unexpected. All employees were very nice and helpful.

"Unique Hotel"

Dropped in to see about availability and very lucky they had a few rooms left. We were given a room that fronts the brook that runs through the back of the property. Our room consisted of two queen beds and had all of the amenities. Our room was on the second floor which looked down on the brook. It was a lovely view. This hotel is located near one of the lifts. For morning breakfast, one of the employees takes your order and calls your name when its ready. Very unique way of serving breakfast. Its a small hotel and I would suggest making reservations. There is no elevator to the second floor, so be warned. Its a GREAT place to stay.

I especially like being described as a unique hotel, and coming from someone as well-travelled as yourself that means a lot. Thank you for your review and for all your reviews - some of them have probably helped me to find a great room as well... Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner [email protected] 575-754-2388

Great staff, comfortable bed, lovely breakfast. Nice fire pit in the back, lit in the evenings, right by the river. Beautiful scenery and a very nice room. I would recommend staying here. I was here for business in the fall. This is a ski town, the hotel is right next to the ski lift, also.

Thank you for the concise and very descriptive review. I'm sure people appreciate getting the lowdown in as few words as possible, and I think you have achieved that - you should probably be writing our marketing materials - thanks again!

"Best hotel in town - Summer Wedding in Red River"

My future husband and I and our families stayed at the BW this summer over the week of July 7th - for our wedding. Not only is this the nicest hotel in town because of the rooms, view, amenities, location, pet friendly and breakfast but the management went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable. We enjoyed the nightly fires in the fire pit and sitting in their courtyard on the nice patio furniture. Also, having a couple of rooms on the first floor - riverside - we had our own patio furniture to enjoy as well. I'd have to say the most courteous thing that management did for us - was after our wedding ceremony, they kindly provided us with 2 complimentary bottles of wine and wine glasses to enjoy with our family and friends. Another noteworthy thing is, we have a special needs sister and the hotel is very handicapped friendly. On the day we checked out - we needed to leave our Yeti somewhere safe (versus the back of an unattended pickup bed) and management graciously offered to let us store it in their lobby while we ran around town. They took care of our every need and helped make our special trip unforgettable! I'll always go back to Best Western!

It is a pleasure to hear we were able to help out with making a wedding special, that is something you definitely want to get off to a great start, and it sounds like we did it! Thank you so much for the great review, and we hope to see many happy anniversaries to come. Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner [email protected] 575-754-2388

If you want to relax and be part of a great outdoor experience with fly fishing at your back door this is the place. Lots of local restaurants and variety of food. Riverfront rooms and a fire pit to sit at during the cool evenings.

bwriversedge, Owner at BEST WESTERN Rivers Edge, responded to this review
Sounds like you might have had some luck with the fly fishing - the river has been looking like an aquarium for rainbow trout all summer. I'm also glad to hear you enjoyed the fire pit (I believe it is the best investment I've ever made). We'll keep it going until it gets too cold to enjoy. Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences, and we hope to make some new ones for you next time! Sincerely, Courtney Henderson, owner/GM [email protected] 575-754-2388
