“Don't stay here, stay anywhere else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

Don't be fooled by the name into thinking this is the Alpine Villas at Taos Ski Valley or anything Alpine like. I've skied for 20 years in the Alps an the French, Swiss and Italians would be embarrassed to be associated with such a place. The main reception and small lobby area was distinctly unwelcoming, and considering this is in the mountains had no feeling of warmth in it. The motel like bedroom was tacky, the only reason I have given it 2 stars is that the bed and linen were clean and comfortable, the Wi-Fi internet connection worked and it's in a good location next to the river. If I had been with a wife or girl-friend I would have turned around and walked away, and the next morning kicked myself for not having the same standards. Don't stay here, there are better places in Red River. The previous night I had stayed in beautiful Santa Fe for just $6 more, most of which was tax, and that included a superb breakfast and welcome. The best thing they can do with this place is pull it down and start again.

Room Tip: Yep, choose a different place to stay.

We stayed 3 nights at Alpine Lodge (originally booked 2 nights but was able to easily add 1 additional night after arrival). Cathy was very friendly and helpful at the check in desk. The room was adequate - kitchen could use a few items - strainer, better can opener and larger coffee pot - but we were quite happy with the accommodations. Only wish the wi-fi would have reached our room - but we were able to sit in the lobby and use the internet. The hot tub was very hot and a nice touch after a day on the slopes. We loved that we could walk to the platinum chairlift after suiting up in the room since it's only about 100 yards from door to chair! The entire town was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the small-ski-town feel with old fashioned friendliness and appreciation for our business. Skiing was great and it was so nice to be able to walk back to the room when we needed a break or lunch.
We usually ski in Colorado since that is where we live, but decided to take up RR with their offer of 3 free days with our Monarch ski pass - what a deal!! We skied 2 days and then booked an evening snowmobile trip. Had lots of fun with both activities. We will definitely return to Red River and would stay at Alpine Lodge in the future!

We stayed for a weekend ski trip, a decent value. Location is perfect. You can walk to the Platinum lift. Restaurants are all within walking distance. There are many types of rooms. Our two bedroom kitchenette was clean and adequately furnished though creativity is required with the sparse cooking implements. The staff was friendly and helpful. Only drawbacks, uncomfortable old spring mattress bed and hard pillows. Walls are very thin so we could easily hear the nextdoor and upstairs neighbors.

Great location. 2nd time staying here. Super close to main chair lift. You can walk to every decent restaurant in town. This is no 5 star hotel, but it is a cute bavarian themed set up. They recently put in flat screen TV's Only wish is for better pillows.

I stayed here for one night in February to go skiing. The room was a great price and it was clean and comfortable. We had a room with a gas fireplace, which was nice. The ski area is set up such that you could stay at several different hotel/lodges (including this one) and be within walking distance to one of the lifts.

We have always enjoyed our stay at the Alpine. We have always chosen their cabins with the convenience of having a kitchen. This time we chose the 3 bedroom, we travel with our son and his 2 best friends - this cabin has been our favorite thus far. Very roomy, and the one bedroom has 2 bunk beds, and a king size bed, with its own bathroom. What we like was after family time later in the evening the guys hooked their game system in this room and had their time, which left my husband and I still had the living area to relax, read or watch t.v. When we were ready to go to bed it was quiet and the guys could still have their fun time. We also like the convenience of having washers and dryers on site. Location is within walking distance of the shops and ski area. Staff always makes you feel welcome. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else on our annual trips to Red River.

My fiancee and I just returned from a quick ski trip to Red River. We found the Alpine Lodge online and booked a king suite based on location, pictures, and reviews. The woman who checked us in told us about the kiosk by the lift where we bought our lift tickets. Everything about the trip was so easy and convenient. The Ski Area is right next to the lodge. We rented skiis right across the street. And we ate at a steak place also across the road. It was a great weekend.

Room Tip: Pick one with a ski view.
