I was blown away by the: cleanliness; beautiful setting by the river right next to the Lift House at the ski lift; kindness/helpfulness of the staff toward us and our two sizeable dogs; the quality of the included breakfast; and the comfort of the beds and room in general. This is probably the closest you can get to the platinum ski lift. Just clip your boots on and walk over with ease. We came up to ski and to enjoy the annual Songwriter's Festival. Some of the artists performed at the Lift House at lift closing time Friday and Saturday which made for a great way to end the ski day and begin the evening. Love Red River in general. The laid back atmosphere and beautiful surroundings are just my style. This hotel made our stay perfect.

The hotel is perfectly located next to the Platinum chair(50 yards away). Newly remodeled rooms are adequate, very clean and well appointed. The rest of the town has lodges (you clean and mostly old.) We had 200+ cable TV channels to choose from which was the most of any hotel I have ever stayed at! Breakfast leaves much to be desired but with freshly cooked eggs, bacon, basic cereals, coffee and juices ....it's doable for a short stay. We didn't want to cook so don't stay here if you plan to cook. Just keep in mind RR is a very small town and this hotel is smack in the middle of everything.

The hotel was nice, nothing to complain about, everything worked as it should. They have a great breakfast included (custom eggs+waffles). Also, it's a step form the slopes, so it's very convenient....

This was one of the few properties that I previewed other reports, so I knew what to expect. Spot on. Plenty of hot water, big tv, comfy and clean. I'd return here, especially if I was skiing.

The only downside to the rooms, was the cold floor. It was cold outside, admittedly, and we didn't crank the heat up, but thought it worth mentioning here. Not a blocker IMHO. To avoid that issue fully, just get an upstairs room.

Last, the breakfast scene is a little chaotic if everyone comes down at the same time. I didn't know what the protocol was on self serving for toast, etc. that was sort of in the space by the fellow making the eggs to order. Eggs came out fine, and they even had cholula sauce. They try hard, but ran out of coffee.

otherwise, good stay, and would return

Room Tip: go for upstairs

Friendly, caring staff, good breakfast, great TV and channel selection, great location. Had family in another facility and Best Western blew them away. Highly recommend this Best Western to anyone going skiing at Red River. It is right beside one of the lifts and convenient walking distance to anywhere in town.

Consistent service every year we stay, I appreciate upgrades the staff makes every year to rooms, like large wall mounted TV with lots of channels, upgraded tile in the bath areas, great beds and in the common areas also, TV, couches, fireplace, lobby décor, made to order breakfast every morning.

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. Come stay with the River's Edge and we will go the extra distance to make sure your every need is met. ... more   less
