A modern motel with a range of rooms for everyone; families on vacation, hunters, pets, and business.
Step back in time to a nicer, friendlier place. You'll feel the difference the moment you step in the door. Sense the pride of family ownership and small town, comfortable charm at historic Reed's Lodge.
Nestled in a protected, pastoral valley at the foot of the beautiful White Mountains, our lodge offers quick, easy access to fishing, hunting and outdoor recreation in the magnificent Apache National Forest. We are minutes away from the amazing Casa Malpais Archaeological Park, popular Sunrise Ski Resort and all White Mountain area attractions and activities. We are located on Hwy 60/180/191 in Springerville which, along with its sister town of Eagar, occupies Round Valley or "Valley Redondo" as it was named by the area's first Spanish settlers.
Built in 1949 to serve early day travelers on US 60, the nation's first coast to coast highway, Reed's retains its original, relaxed country atmosphere. Together with our unique homestyle K5 Gallery, it reflects the real west cultural heritage of our region. Many rooms boast beautifully warm, locally milled aged knotty pine walls or log beams from the adjacent Apache National Forest. Some are individually decorated with art by outstanding local artists who are featured in our gallery. Outdoor porch supports are of large juniper and pine logs, adding more western character. Our grounds feature casual, country landscaping (weeders welcome!) with several lawns, a variety of trees, and colorful flowers in season.
Film legend John Wayne owned a ranch nearby and used to enjoy coming to Reed's to play cards with Galyn's dad and other local gentlemen. Our guests enjoy making themselves at home, relaxing by the huge lobby fireplace and swapping big fish or wild hunting and skiing stories. We've even got a place to clean and freeze fish, and to barbecue on a back lawn. The White Mountains are famous for trout fishing and over forty coldwater lakes and 500 miles of streams. The rare Apache Trout can be found only here, along with cutthrout, brook, rainbow and brown trout. Our lower lakes also offer bass, walleye and northern pike, catfish and sunfish. You can fill your ice chests with all the free ice you need for your outdoor adventures or borrow our bicycle built for two for a fun spin around town.
We are happy to point you to near by children's playgrounds or a variety of hiking trails and wildlife areas.
We pride ourselves on offering different types of rooms, unlike many chains whose rooms are all “cookie cutter” the same. We try to offer something for a variety of tastes and pocketbooks. Even within each type of room, you will find that our décor varies some in color, artwork and carpet. We hope you agree that this approach adds a bit more personality and uniqueness to your room here. We know that our rates are very competitive in our area….and we aim to please! Ask about special accommodations for small to medium groups.
For cowboys, workers and folks on a budget, “Bunkhouse” rooms are a bit worn and not especially pretty, but the price is right. Everybody gets a discount! And they’ve got all the basics; clean, comfortable and functional. They do have free high speed wireless, phones, older T.V.s, back supporter Queen mattresses and combination tub and showers.
These are vintage early fifties rooms with an old-fashioned mountain cabin feel to them due to the knotty pine paneling on a couple of walls (logged and milled locally). It gives a relaxed, cozy feel to the rooms that makes them favorites of many guests. The bath fixtures are older and a few have worn surfaces, but we guarantee them to be clean! Most feature pedestal sinks, and all have Microfridges, standard T.V., free high speed wireless and good back supporter Queen mattresses. They are also located off the street in a walled parking lot. Parking is directly in front of each room.
We sometimes call these our deluxe rooms. We’re not the Hilton, but we think you’ll really like them. These spacious rooms are our newest. They feature large Ponderosa Pine wood beams in the ceiling, along with upgraded décor and comfy Serta Perfect Sleeper plush-top back supporter mattresses, with either one King or two Queens per room. Each has a flat screen T.V., a Microfridge, and free high speed wireless with a good, strong signal. The Ponderosa rooms are located away from the highway and face in on a pleasant, quiet courtyard lawn with a park style barbecue in one corner. Bring your own charcoal!
These are our largest rooms and features art by one of the top notch local artists who displays in our onsite western gallery. (Some guests enjoy finding artists’ prints to take home from our homestyle gallery.) Each room has a sign above the entry door with the artist’s name and the name of the room. You can request them by name and enjoy different art each time you come, or just pick a favorite room as many folks do. Try the “Eagles’ Nest” room or the “Cowboy Golf” room, the “Aspen” room, “Navajo Dreams”, “Lil Buckaroo” or the “Ranch” room. They have either one King or two Queens, the same plush mattresses found in the “Ponderosa” rooms, nice T.V.s, Microfridges, and free wireless. Parking in front of the rooms. Priced the same as the “Ponderosa” rooms.
