My husband and I have been visiting Red River, NM over Memorial Day Weekend for almost 20 years. Our very first stay was at the Alpine Lodge way back in 1997. As we got to know the town better, we tried other places and decided that we like the Copper King Lodge better, so we have been staying there annually, ever since. Recently, we were on a 3 week long motorcycle trip and we decided to spend a few days in Red River on the way home to Phoenix. We phoned our usual hotel, but since it was "around" the Labor Day weekend, they required a 3 night minimum stay and we only had two days to spend in RR. So, we phoned the Alpine Lodge and they were kind enough to accommodate us for only 2 days. We were grateful for that. We had cabin # 28, which we were told was a "new" Studio Suite. Our “cabin” was an 18 x 18 foot square room, with 12”x12” white tiles on the floor that need a good scrubbing. The ceiling is stucco’d and the walls are painted white and brown paneling. There are two windows that open (they appear newish), there is a noisy apartment size fridge, a double bowl SS sink and a 4- burner gas stove. There is a table with two chairs, a flat screen TV (about 32”) and a stick lamp with a giant shade that keeps hitting the wall, ceiling fan, 2 drawer dresser, microwave, dishes, pot & pans, coffee maker and kitchen utensils. There is also a large mirror. All of this is in the same room. The bathroom has a small toilet tucked behind the door, a full-size tub and a small sink and mirror. The bathroom looks like an afterthought. Everything worked in the room though the Queen size bed was not comfortable. Hubby and I continually rolled into each other during the night. The room could have been cleaner. This unit is part of a 4plex so there are neighbors all around. We were pretty much by ourselves the first night - but by the second day (the start of a Holiday Weekend), the place was crowded and noisy. Our next door neighbors arrived after 1 am with kids, lots of luggage, food, coolers and equipment and made no attempt to consider the hour or other guests. (Not the Alpine Lodge's fault, of course). If you are looking for peace and quiet, seclusion and relaxation - choose a place that has a free standing cabin, or somewhere more remote. There is a playground for the kids, BBQ's throughout the grounds and the river nearby. Come for the town, not for the Lodge.

Room Tip: choose a free standing cabin, not one that is part of a fourplex.

Thank you for the review! I'm sorry the Studio Suite did not meet your expectations. These rooms are loved by couples looking to come to Red River and do some cooking of their own and stay within their budget. Alpine Lodge offers 19 diverse room types so that our guests can find the perfect fit. We do appreciate the feedback so that we can go and address the issues listed in the review for room 28.

Alpine Lodge is a Red River hotel so all of our rooms are situated on our 4 acres of land. I'm sorry to hear that your neighbors were not very courteous of our quiet hours. Most of our guests are great about keeping our grounds quiet and peaceful but occasionally that is not the case and we know it can cause an inconvenience to other guests around them.

My husband and I usually rent a cabin when we go to Red River...but this time we wanted to stay in town and have the convenience of being able to walk to restaurants, etc. I did a lot of research...and decided to stay at the Alpine Lodge. We definitely wanted to have a little porch/balcony to sit on and enjoy the cool mornings and evenings! I am so glad that I requested the Honeymoon room! It is on the 3rd floor...so there are lots of stairs...so that is something to be aware of. The room had a really great king bed..with a really comfy mattress!!! There are two sides of windows in the room...so this is really great for air flow! (no air conditioning...but it isn't needed!!!). We were there in August...and it was nice and cool in our room. The bathroom is very basic...nothing fancy! This room also has a working fireplace for visitors in the winter months...that would be really cozy! We walked to bars/restaurants close by...but drove down the street to the Bull of the Woods and Dinner at the Love Love Saloon.

Room Tip: Better balcony/deck area on rooms located on the upper floors.

Thank you for the great review, Jennifer! We love the Honeymoon Suite with it's large balcony and beautiful view of the town of Red River. Our walk everywhere location cannot be beat. We hope to see you again in the future!

The bed and pillows are wonderful!! They are doing great upgrades! We just needed a 1 bedroom for a quick get away and are very pleased! They have many different sizes to offer. Love the fire pit, too! We will be back!

Stayed in cabin 33. Great location. The bedrooms and bathrooms are small. Literally the bath off the living room you have one leg under the sink while using the toilet. Beds are uncomfortable. No cleaning during our stay unless you request it. Pros: the place is a real cabin look and feel. Should only stay in this cabin if it's a couple with small children.

Thank you for the review! The Alpine Cabin has been here since the lodge was established in 1953 and we know those bathrooms can be a little tight. We do offer a daily basic housekeeping service so I do apologize if you didn't receive that service as that is never our intention.

Mattresses were great! Rooms are small but really nice. Only complaint would be to have larger bathroom counters! Love how close Alpine is to everything. People are friendly. Prices are in line with going rates in Red River.

Thank you for the great review! Alpine Lodge is an older lodge so we know some of our rooms are a little smaller but we are hard at work updating rooms as we get the chance. Our walk everywhere location cannot be beat all while sitting right on the river. We hope to see you again!
