"Little Retreat"
December 2018
This hotel is really nice. We stayed two nights just for a little get away weekend needing some fun and a break. We had a private balcony and fireplace. The pool and hot tub are amazing. Also it's just a few minutes walk from the main strip. We ate, shopped, and had a great time. The hotel staff was so nice and personable. We will be staying here again for certain.

Tip: Bring your swimsuits and good walking shoes for walking the strip!

Lovely town and hotel with free breakfast and Wi-fi. Views from the hotel are lovely as it overlooks the mountains and adjacent river. Large well equipped room. The elevator had a large front window proving wonderful panoramic views!

"Mother's Day Weekend"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 14, 2019 NEW
This was our 3rd stay at The Edgewater Hotel and i can't say enough great things about this establishment. We used to search for the best deal and reviews but after finding this hotel I refuse to stay anywhere else. The employees are friendly, helpful and make you feel welcome. The location is great and the rooms are clean, spacious and the beds are very comfortable. We booked this Mother's Day weekend last minute and took my mother-n-law and father-n-law with us, they were just as impressed. My favorite home away from home. Keep up the good work Edgewater.

Very nice, clean place to stay. It was close to the attractions and yet offered a quiet place to spend the night. We had the room with the fireplace and hot tub and enjoyed both. Breakfast was also nice and offered in a very large, very clean room.

My husband and I stayed for one night at the end of April. Hotel could use some updating, which I believe I heard they currently are. I did see some updates in the bathroom. Rooms and hallways are dark. Parking wasn't bad. We drive a full size Chevy and have no issues, even on a Saturday afternoon.

Years ago, we stayed at Edgewater and didn't care for the conditions. I'm happy to report that we were very satisfied with our stay this time. The beds were very high off the floor, but comfortable, the room was clean, and we had plenty of linens. Centrally located on the parallel road to the main road, it was very convenient to shops for walking. We'll definitely be back. I am submitting a photo for the view from the creekside.
