It all started with booking our rooms we were able to reserve three rooms of which we only could use two (unfortunately a friend of ours couldn't come) but The hotel manager Rose was wonderful enough to...

Our Vets group used this as a stop off point on a rafting trip. The staff was super cool to the advanced team and while we waited in the sun for the river team to get to us the staff at Fenders did all they could to help us out. They went so far as to fill tiki touches and... More

Rosie and Kim, and all the staff at Fender's, cannot be more friendly and accommodating. As soon as you meet them, you are like family. The entire resort is like one big family. Our little veterans' group only stayed one night, but we definitely will be back. Thank you Rosie!!! Much love and respect!

Stay a long extended weekend and it is great to wake up and the first thing you see from the suite's balcony is the river! All shapes and sizes of boats up and down the river and you get to meet some fun folks who are also staying at the property either in another room or in a RV. Rosie,... More

Kim was helpful. First night on Route 66 roadtrip and had to stay at well known place. Fenders was recommended and did not dissappoint. Clean, basic room w/kitchenette. Good shower. Colorado river access was beautiful.

This cute little river front place was just what I needed. The manager Rosie and I had a lovely conversation as she was allowing me to store my belongings before check in time. I rented the suite overlooking the river. The bed is amazing. The air air conditioning is ice cold which is very necessary as it was 117 degrees... More

We have travelled extensively on the back roads of America, especially along old Route 66, and I can safely say that Fender's is a unique, comfortable, and special place to stay. With great hospitality provided by Rosie, comfortable room (we stayed in the penthouse suite), and beautiful riverfront location, Fender's is a great place to rest for a night, or... More

We were made very welcome, old-world R 66 rooms. Sat outside in the evening sun and chatted with one of the resident RV dwellers - like going back in time. Pleasant walk down to the river but watch out for midges - we got eaten alive ! Don't refuel in Needles like we did - go over the river to... More

I really wanted to love Fenders. We are Route 66 buffs and that's why we chose Fenders motel and RV park on the Mother Road on our California trip to the Mojave Preserve. I'll start with the pro's. The hosts are really, really awesome!!!! It's on the river. It's on Route 66. The RV park looks great. The price for... More
