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!

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

She showed us to our site which is gravel and level. Easy to navigate the interior roads. The laundry is huge and spotless. The Wi-Fi is very... More

This RV/ motel was ok. The sites are level gravel. We didn't stay by the river,but the sites down there looked nice.the bathrooms and showers were clean. Laundry room was clean and cheap. The reason I didn't give it a higher rating was it was quite noisy. There was s lot of banging around at about midnight and then the... More

I pulled into Fenders park where I had made reservations. My interactions on the phone had been very pleasant and the woman was just as nice in person. However, I was unpleasantly surprised to find the following: 1) By her own admission she had lost my reservation for a spot along the river but could put me up near the... More

This easy in, easy out park is right on the Colorado River. Overnight sites are side by side, but still have plenty of space. Rosie is so friendly and kind. I stayed 3 nights, PPA. Bathrooms and Laundry area was clean. Easy to AZ, and NV for day trips. Close by Needles has many Route 66 murals on the buildings... More
