“Great location”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

The Best Western River's Edge is a great little hotel right on the creek and right next to the ski lift in Red River, NM. The rooms are very comfortable. If you can request a river view room, do it. The first floor rooms all have access to the wonderful deck area that overlooks the creek, and you can see the ski lift and the people skiing from the deck. The made to order breakfast was wonderful. This hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Red River, so walking to the shops and restaraunts was easy. Please not that the town pretty much shuts down for the month of April and there were only a couple of places to eat open, but it is still a neat place. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor river view.

Very nice in general, clean, friendly staff. We were on bikes and they accommodated us. They have an arrangement with the Capo restaurant, an unexciting place next door that gives 10% off for BW clients. As I write we are waiting for the office to open for breakfast so we can get back on our bikes for our 55 mile trip. It is posted to open at 7 and that's what staff said yesterday. It is 7.45

Last minute decision to leave a day early and book a room, glad we did. The guys at the front desk were really nice and welcoming! We did arrive a little late like around 8 or 830 pm, so absolutely nothing was open in town for food or a snack, the hotel does have drink vending machines but not snack. After driving through town searching for something husband had indigestion and one of the front desk guys helped him out (thank you!!). Room was very clean and at the back so the sound of the running river was awesome! Slept great on comfy beds and awoke to a beautiful view of the mountain directly across from river with ski lift, nice decking on back with seating to enjoy the sights and sounds (need to return for longer stay). Appeared to be in a great location with short walk to many shops, stores, and activities.

Room Tip: Request a room on the back facing the river!

This is an interesting little hotel. Feels almost like a B&B more than a chain. I think the staff is good (one guy definitely better than the other during the several days of our stay). The rooms are clean and the public area is well kept. It is probably one of the better places to stay in the area if you are a skier (one of the lifts is within a hundred yards).

The hotel is located right next to the Platinum lift and Lift Haus. It is extremely clean, has very comfortable beds and nice decor, and the complimentary breakfast includes made-to-order eggs, waffles, and bacon. There is a good selection of toasts, bagels, fruit, and cereals with juice, milk and hot coffees. The management is superior. We wanted a clean hotel with a great location and this was absolutely perfect for my daugher and I for a fun spring break. The only thing I would improve is the free Wi-Fi. We could get connected, but the band width was not enough to really stay connected. But, we had our cell phone service for necessary contacts.
We had a river-side room, and loved this part. We could sit outside the room on outdoor furniture and enjoy the view while resting after a day of skiing. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower-level, river-side room....excellent.

Excellent hotel for skiing Red River within walking distance of lifts. The hotel was clean, the service was exceptional, breakfast was good. The hotel is in the middle of town so no car is needed to go anywhere.

My family of four stayed at the BW Rivers Edge for a Spring Break ski trip. The location is perfect - next door to the lift and the Lift House and a very short walk to a number of stores and restaurants. The staff made us feel like we were guests in their home! They made a great hot breakfast every morning and were always extremely friendly and accomodating. The room, especially the bathroom, was a little small but it was very clean and quiet and the beds were comfortable. The outside area of the hotel was very nice -- a babbling stream, picnic tables, grills, etc. I will definitely stay at this hotel again!

As the only franchised lodge in town, the River's Edge Lodge provides several amenities found nowhere else in Red River, such as air conditioning, free hot breakfast each morning, 42" HDTV's & HBO/SHO/250+ HD channels, and the assurance that we are meeting all of Best Western's increasingly stringent standards. We have the best location in town, with the Red River wrapping around the property's quiet, park-like setting (coming within 20 feet of some of the rooms). The Carson National Forest and a nature trail stretching for miles lie just across the river, and the Red River Ski Area's main Platinum chair lift is literally a few dozen steps away from our lobby's front door. The town's only grocery store and most of the best restaurants are similarly located within a very short walk.
