“Not the best and not the worst...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

Pros: Underground parking, very nice staff, great location - close to everything, nice lobby, restaurant and gift shops on site. Spacious room with comfortable king bed, new carpet, nice sofa, little balcony overlooking town, double sink in bath
Cons: Bath needed an update, old fixtures. No towels in kitchen, no frills (no lotion,coffee, hairdryer,shampoo) that one would expect in a rental condo.
I believe these are individually owned so you may be able to request a updated unit.

My family and I recently stayed at Lifts West and we had a great time. The location was perfect right in the middle of town, and our room was perfect also, right out our living room was a heated pool and right across the street was a stream that I cuaught lots of trout. We will be back next year the price was affordable and our one bed room condo was perfect, nice and clean with all the comforts of home we loved it.

My wife and I stayed at the lifts west for our honeymoon last December. The room was super nice had a full kitchen, living room, fireplace, and 2 bedrooms and a bathroom all this a a very reasonable rate. We had a patio with a mountain view and it was amazing! We visit red river frequently and this was the best hotel by far we have stayed in. Will definately stay again when we go back. Only one little problem was I guess the floor above us had a washer/dryer and could hear it running but only heard it 2 times out of the 5 days we were there. It wasn't a real dialstraction so I still give this place 5 stars!

First time we stayed at Lifts West. Perfect location, within walking distance of all the restaurants, stores, and activities in Red River. Our unit was great from the Southwest Decor and artwork to the granite countertops in the kitchen. The underground parking, elevator, and luggage rack made moving in and out a breeze. The staff at the Lifts West was helpful and curtious. We will definitely stay there again!

Visited Red River, NM July 1-6, 2011. Temperatures were 72-78 degrees, which was perfect considering we had left 100 degree temps at home. Relaxed in the condos, shopped the unique businesses in Red River and took a couple of day trips. One really special day trip was to Alamosa, CO to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. Just to see it was well worth the easy drive up there. We took wake boards and sledded down the dunes! Most fun ever! We were, of course covered in sand at the end of the day. So we stopped at the San Luis Valley Campground to shower and change. Then we stopped at the Alamosa Speedway to watch the stock car races. Dinner that evening was at the San Luis Brewery in Alamosa and was very good. So much fun! And just a short,
very easy 75 minutes north of Red River. As always, Billy and the crew at Lifts West were amazing at meeting all our needs and requests. Would love to move to Red River and become a part of that great little community!

We chose this place because it had a pool. We went to Red River for a family reunion and stayed 3 nights at Lifts West and rented 11 rooms among us. It's a condo/hotel and each room is owned by different individuals, so each room is different, either in a good way or a bad way. Our room had some major design flaws (like, you couldn't open the dishwasher unless you opened the refrigerator door!) and the shower head didn't work. We had a deck, but apparently it was being renovated because there was no deck furniture on it and it had a bare wood floor. They finally fixed the shower head the last night we were there. The staff doesn't do any room service other than changing out towels for you and emptying the trash in the kitchen every day. Once they skipped my uncle's room and when he asked about fresh towels, they argued with him! The pool is so rundown it's amazing it's even open. The edges are chipped and could skin your feet if you aren't careful, and the walls had not been backwashed in a long time. The water was not very clean either, but it was warm (a definite plus). The pool was supposed to open daily at 8 a.m., but we had to ask them to open it one day when it wasn't open by 10:30 a.m. Overall, just a lack of attention to this old, rundown hotel makes me not recommend it. They did let us use a meeting room at no charge one evening, though, so that was positive. The photos that are on their website make this look like a nice place, but it's old and they don't seem to be putting much money into upkeep or upgrades. The lobby is as nice as it looks in the photos.

Room Tip: If you want a 2 bedroom unit, request G-1 or G-2; for a 1-bedroom G-10 was okay

This is our 19th year in Red Ruver for our ENTIRE family!! Lifts West Condos is the ONLY place we will stay! The large, comfortable condos with full kitchens and many bedrooms make it perfect for our HUGE extended family! Billy and his crew take great care of us and we will continue to stay here for many, many years to come!
