We spent six weeks in the winter here in our travel trailer. Rosie and Kim did everything to make our stay great except to keep it from getting cold at night! :) It feels like home very quickly, everyone is friendly. Being on the river is a real plus for us, the water flowing by is very peaceful. There is... More

Great staff, a comfortable room in the motel structure but there is a suite which should be requested. Right on old Route 66 with a wonderful view of the river (although not from the rooms except the suite). You can walk right down to the river.

This is the 2nd year in a row we have stopped overnight. Rosie, the manager, and her assistant Kim both did everything possible to see that our stay was pleasant. Full hookups and you can sunbath on the deck over looking the river. Great showers and laundry room. We have a 36 ft diesel pusher and upgraded to a site... More

I had to stay in the Needles area but did not want to stay in a regular motel. A friend recommended Fenders and I am very happy he did. It is a very nice place with extremely helpful and friendly staff. A great room with direct access to the river made my day and gave me a very relaxed stay.... More

This is my husband's and my new favorite place to stay at the river! I've been coming to the river for 20 years and can't believe I've missed this place. The motel rooms are very spacious and include free Wi-Fi, kitchenettes, table and chairs and stand up shower (rather tight quarters in the shower though). Beds weren't the most comfortable... More

Beautiful setting on the Colorado River. Nice, clean rooms with a kitchenette- perfect for settling in for a few days and relaxing while on a Route 66 road trip. Rosie is a wonderful hostess. I'll be back!

Thanks to Kim at Fenders for making us feel so welcome during our stay on Saturday June 20.We were near the beginning of a complete tour of Rt66, and did our best to eat at and stay at Mom & Pops the whole way. Our room , although a bit rustic was clean and the beds were comfortable. We met... More

It was 118 degrees and our a/c on the coach was not working when we pulled in . Kim was very welcoming and put us in a site in the river. That saved our sanity- we sat immersed in the water for hours. Simple place, clean, not fancy, mostly 30amp. They have a motel w/ a-c in the rooms. Everyone... More

Whenever I travel, I like to support local businesses along the way. That is especially true when I'm on old Route 66. I heard about Fender's from a roadie friend and stayed there during a trip down old 66 from LA to Albuquerque. I booked a night there in advance, and on the day I realized I was going to... More
