Pros: It's in Red River - nice ski town in a beautiful valley, not overly kitschy. Lodge is in a good location in center of town, walking distance to the few restaurants, skiing and the grocery store. Upstairs suites with kitchen are nice and bright. Inexpensive, and often the last hotel to be booked fully at peak times like Christmas break (wonder why). Great hot tub, often sparsely used. Owners were quite helpful when we ran into problems, but they can seem aloof as well.

Cons: Rooms and furnishings are generally outdated, somewhat worn. Thin walls, especially through adjoining doors between rooms and in downstairs rooms. Sub-minimal amenities and service, e.g. no shampoo, no cleaning, coffee-maker but no coffee ($1 per packet in office). Downstairs single rooms (at least on the west side) are dark and dreary. Parking lot is way too small, though street parking is not a problem. 10am check out.

You're here to ski, not sleep.

Room Tip: get the larger suites and go for the 2nd floor

We stay here everytime we come to Red River.This last time we stayed here I've noticed how the rooms need a remodel soon.Don't get me wrong it's worth the money but I just keep seeing things that need an upgrade,I would start with the beds.The beds are a little lumpy but I guess everyone has their own choice when it comes to firmness of bedding.Was nice to have Direct-tv in the room but the TV is like from the 70's but I wasn't there to watch tv so not really that big a deal.To me this is the ideal location because you can walk to any place in town from here.There's a grocery store about 200 yards away.Love the location but it's time to upgrade the rooms in my opinion.The hot tub was a huge plus to an aching back!

The Ponderosa Lodge is exactly what it's name states! It's rooms give off a atmosphere that matches the feeling when you step out and see what this little resort town has to offer. Even in the summer months there are alot of activities to enjoy, and the Ponderosa Lodge is located perfectly in the middle of town. They have a very friendly staff and the office personel see to it that all your family's needs are met. They have a hot tub and dry sauna on location aswell as daily housekeeping. Rooms are supplied with fireplaces and full kitchens, which turned out to be one of the best things about our stay.
