Nestled along a stretch Historic Route 66, right on the banks of the Colorado River, just a nice site, great accommodations, and a wonderfully helpful manager, Rosie. We had booked a stay at another site, but were unable to check in because the manager was unavailable, even after repeated phone calls. So we tried Fender's River Road, and Rosie called... More

My husband and I stayed at Fender's River Road Resort on our trip from Flagstaff to Santa Monica, CA along the old Route 66. The room was very basic in decor, but that is what we expected and wanted from a vintage Route 66 motel. Rosie, the proprietor was very friendly and helpful as we discussed our trip, and she... More

Picked this resort because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and also it was recommended in the Route 66 EZ Guide. We arrived in Needles at 10;30 am already 45 degrees outside. Ran into the local McDonald's to cool off and grab a bite to eat. It wasn't anything to cheer about but the AC worked. Fenders is a diamond in... More

When traveling Route 66 - I try to support the mom and pop stops as they are what Route 66 was / is all about. I have stayed in Needles on 4 or 5 different occasions and I usually stayed at one of the chain places as it was the 'safe thing to do' as all other smaller motels /... More

My winter months of business take me to the southwest corridor of the United States. My first year as a resident at Fenders River road resort with my 5th wheel home was exceptional, hosted by a manager who was always involved with my needs as a very functional location, and cleanliness. The property on the Colorado River were it resides... More

The room that we rented was not clean. Bugs only came out at night but did a hoe down in the middle of the floor. It was over priced. Getting to swim was out of question. Rosie was very nice at first but turned hostile when I mentioned the Bugs. Would never go back. The KOA is just up the... More

Travelling Route 66 by car and happened upon the River Road Resort by chance and as it was so inviting looking and seemed (it is!) a genuine Rt 66 item we could not resist having a look and we were happily accomodated in a clean, comfortable room in this nice quiet motel resort. The room has all the conveniences one... More

This is the first RV park we came to in Needles. Rosie met us at the office. She is friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable. It's a small, cozy park, next to the river. The RV park and the laundry/shower facilties are clean. Hook-ups are easily available. Flowers are blooming already. If we are ever in Needles again, we'll stay... More
