The 30-room Best Western Rivers Edge is directly
on the Red River and close to area ski slopes. The property attracts couples
and families with its free hot breakfast and affordably priced rooms.
Modern rooms have classic decor, air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs,
kitchenettes, and riverfront patios. Keep in mind that noise from nightly
gatherings at waterfront fire pits can be bothersome in some rooms.
Riverfront hotel with lodge decor, fire pits, and barbecues
The two-story Best Western Rivers Edge evokes
the warm, welcoming feeling of a lodge, with wooden railings, green doors,
antlers over the entrance, and a forest landscape.
The chain hotel features
a modern lobby and offers the intimacy of a bed and breakfast, with most guests
knowing the property manager and cook by name. The hotel is
designed to highlight the serene Red River that runs in the back, where fly fishermen
can be found casting a line for trout. At night guests are known to gather at
riverfront metal benches, tables, chairs, and fire pits to play music, roast
marshmallows, and socialize. (Noise from the nightly gatherings, though, can be
bothersome in guest rooms.)
Located on the Red River, near array of eateries and the ski area
The hotel was constructed where Pioneer
Creek and Red River meet, with a hiking trail found behind the property. The location
is convenient for those looking to take to the slopes, with the Red River Ski
Area only three minutes away by foot. Several restaurants -- the Black Diamond
Grill, Old Timers Cafe, Capo’s Corner, and Shotgun Willie’s -- and a grocery
store are less than a five-minute walk away. The closest airports on the
other hand are more than two hours south by car. Driving to Taos Pueblo, a famed
Native-American historical landmark that’s also a UNESCO World Heritage site,
takes around 45 minutes.
Modern rooms offer classic decor, flat-screen TVs, kitchenettes, and patios with river views.
hotel offers 28 rooms and two suites with Southwestern style, incorporating classic wood
furniture and carpeting. They're updated and attractive, if a bit basic (expect machine stucco on the walls) -- this is still a Best Western, after all. All units have air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs,
microwaves, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, patios, and (in some cases) DVD
players. Furnished patios offer stunning views of the forest and river. Bathrooms
have traditional finishes and standard shower/tub combos with thoughtful
touches like makeup remover towelettes. Rooms with adjoining doors, especially
geared toward families, are available as well. Pets are allowed for a fee but
crates are required.
An Internet corner and sitting room with a fireplace
The modern lobby -- decorated in blacks and
browns with wood accents -- offers a sitting room with a brown leather
sectional sofa across from a fireplace and large flat-screen TV. Coffee is
available as are free local and national newspapers. The hotel also offers a PC computer and a printer/copy machine at its business corner. Certain business services, including faxing, are available
for a fee. A hot tub is located in a covered terrace overlooking the forest landscape,
with a free outdoor parking lot in front of the property. Other freebies include Wi-Fi and an on-site continental breakfast, served in a dining room with contemporary furniture.
