I booked two nights here over our Thanksgiving break based on the online description of this "resort" and several reviews I read. I don't see how the reviewers who gave this place good ratings did so. This was one of the worst motels we have ever stayed in! When I made the reservation online, rooms 5, 6, and 7 were...

My son and I stayed here for one night during our 66 trip in Sept 2016. The motel rooms are fairly basic but the location and friendly staff made this an enjoyable stay. We ate our dinner on the balcony and watched the sunset over the river. It is very similar to where we live so it was quite nostalgic...

Fender River Resort is one of those iconic Route 66 Motel along our Mother Road. It is suitable for a one night stay or an extended stay. You will be happy that you choose to stay here. Right on the Colorado River for a great view.

Only needed a night on our way south. We were very disappointed. The spots were small, dirty and full of weeds. No tv cable, spotty internet and loud neighbors. Our spot was by the motel rooms they offer. Cars running and people talking loudly. Will not return.

pulled into the park on Saturday afternoon and greeted by a very knowledgeable and friendly host!! She answered all my questions and we decided to stay three days to see the area and do some kayaking!

We stayed here for 2 nights in October 2015 in a rental RV. We were given a lovely welcome and were very impressed with the park. It was very clear (including the showers, toilets and laundry) and the sites are well laid out with enough space between each one. We had a site overlooking the river which was lovely. The...

We had one of the most fun filled warm hearted experiences with all the staff, especially the manager, at Fender's River Road Resort!!!! 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...

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,...
