The rooms are clean, with microwaves, fridge, coffee maker -- enough for me to bring food from home and skip the fast food and mediocre restaurants in Chama without paying more for a cabin/kitchenette. The lodge is by the river on a nice property, and the owners are nice. The drawback is the bed -- must be an old mattress... More

Chama is beautiful. River Bend lodge is well kept, reasonable, rustic, and quiet. Good family business that is a good place for families. Great access to river. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Surprising amenities for such a simple place. Was here on business, but will be bringing the family back for leisure.

I've stayed both at Chama River Bend Lodge and the property next door. Quite honestly, they are both very similar properties... your basic accommodations with a wonderfully attentive and friendly staff. Comfortable beds, clean rooms, free wifi, hot showers, mini-fridge, and the prices are within a few dollars of each other. This unit has the advantage of having a microwave... More

WE arrived at Chama in heavy snow only to be told at our pre-booked motel that they could not provide a room. I went nearby to River Bend Lodge and got fixed up. The people were the most charming and helpful you could have imagined. The weather was dire, but I expect they are just as nice when conditions are... More

First I will say that the staff at this motel “lodge” were very nice, BUT.... This is a 1960s style non-renovated, except for new carpet. Our room, number 113, had an old toilet, a tiny shower that has no light and will either scald you or freeze you intermittently without notice. The room was smelly and dusty. There were no... More

We were absolutely happy with our stay at the River Bend Lodge! We had our wedding there over the weekend and couldn't be happier! The service was above and beyond excellent. They did everything to make sure we were accommodated and to take care of our family members as well. The cabins were all very clean and neat, the fall... More

The service was great in accomadating us, especially arriving so late. Its a simple lodge, with only coffee available in the office or in your room.. expect no breakfast...The room was great, it was equipped with a fridge and microwave, however.. The pillows smelled awful and the blankets had cigarette burns and a questionable stain. They dont allow pets in... More

After a long motorcycle ride, this is the place to rest and unwind in Chama. We stopped by in mid September. The rooms are cozy and clean, and the owners are very nice. The lodge is a large clean property, with a fire pit and sitting area in the center. The owners did us a huge favor by dropping off... More
