For some reason I thought all rooms faced the river. Wrong. Our room faced the street and right across from us was a Go-Kart Track. So, instead of hearing the river, we heard go-karts racing. You could hear the go-karts a block away. So, don't stay here expecting peace and tranquility unless you make sure you have a room on... More

Better than expected! Quaint, rustic beautiful setting with the Red River steps behind the hotel and a ski lift 1/2 block away! Great breakfast included and wifi. Very pleasantly pleased with a rustic ski load feel. Hot tub, outdoor fire pit next to the river.

We stayed he for several nights and enjoyed out stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a fantastic location. It is near everything in town, but tucked away just a bit so it is quiet. For those skiing in the winter, it is right next to the ski lift. They serve a wonderful breakfast. The eggs... More

We have probably stayed at this Best Western 3 other times in the last 5 years. Love Red River for the quaint setting, and love Rivers Edge for the same reason. Within walking distance of a few restaurants. Calm, quiet, clean, and very nice personnel. Great setting - we love it.

My wife and I took our 3 small children on a spur of the moment trip before school started. The hotel was great and in an excellent location. It was rather warm while we were there so the room air conditioner was nice to have. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay there.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
