Angela and Jeff are the new managers as of the summer of 2016. They are wonderfully kind and responsive to our needs. Jeff is a handyman, and Angela is a wealth of information. They gave us a 10% discount because we stayed longer than one day in August. We tidy-ed our own room, and just asked for toilet paper and... More

We stayed here with my parents and everyone was so nice. Due to the altitude and lack of use our truck a diesel had problems starting when we got ready to leave. The hotel management was so nice while we waited for the truck to warm up enough to start that they opened our rooms back up for us to... More

The room was a nice size but the housekeeping left a lot to be desired. We were there four days, only had our bed made once and housekeeping left a few towels one day. The room was never cleaned and the trash was not emptied. There was dried dog poop under the futon and we do not have a dog!... More

The Ponderosa is very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. There is a bus that will pick you up at the hotel and drop at the ski lift. The hotel is within walking distance of everything in town. I would stay here again. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.

We were originally supposed to stay at the Alpine Lodge, but due to a water line break, we ended up booking here 3 hours before we arrived. We had a 1 bedroom "suite" with kitchen, living room, and fireplace. The room was nice, other than being dated, no complaints. Our AC/Heater did not work but we were comfortable. The windows...

I could give it a 2 given the price but considering Red River is a tourist place I'll go with the 3. I am very used to "rustic" but I thought the price was on the high side for the quality of the place. We visited July 7-9, so not ski season, and Red River did not seem that busy... More

Who answers a business phone with an impatient "hello?" The rude employees here are also scamming guests with pets out of their $25 cash deposit, including me. We've been doing family reunions here for 15 years (we like the motel's layout), and while the room upgrades have been minimal, the staff's unprofessionalism has increased. I think my sunglasses were taken... More

I've stayed in Red River 15+ times. I have come to expect lodge rooms or cabins that are clean but not lovely. Comfortable and basic. The Ponderosa was not comfortable, and we had MANY problems. I stayed for a family reunion so our experience included: 1- We were given keys to an occupied room (!!) and then they didn't have... More

The motel is old and needs renovation. The room was clean and the beds were OK, not the best but not the worst I have had and not worth the rate they charge. They allow pets but charge extra and also require a $25.00 deposit. The girl checking me in said I would get my deposit back when I checked... More

This wonderful hotel/lodge was the perfect choice for our honeymoon getaway! They offer a variety of room sizes, but we chose a one bedroom with kitchen, living area, and bathroom. The best part was the fireplace! The lodge provides free firewood, so we could have a fire going 24/7. The lodge is located in the heart of Red River. We... More
