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

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
