After a late night of driving I was never so happy to lay down here! FYI stay off unpaved roads unless you have a Forestry map! The bed was comfortable, room was clean, front desk had ice cold tea for us and even let me use a shop-vac to sweep the dust out of our car, Thank you Big Iron... More

This is an older motel but good for the value. We were offered a complimentary beer or iced tea when we checked in. Plenty of parking for boats and trailers. The food truck food was not good. We ordered Chinese food and the chicken was store bought nuggets and the spicy fried rice was from a box.

Last time, I stayed at the expensive lodge in Riggins but this time I stayed at the Big Iron and really liked the large rooms and the friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are clean and the place is quiet. The evening "restaurant" --- a trailer parked in the motel grounds -- has great food.

I was just there with a large group. The rooms were quiet, large, with comfortable beds. The office gives everyone a free beer when you sign in and a free cookies daily. I would stay there again. It is right across from the city park.

If you are looking for clean rooms, great service and the best food in town, this is the place to stay. The owners, Scoot and Rose, definitely place there guest first. We have stayed here several times and would not even consider staying anywhere else.

We stopped for a nights rest as we were taking our last child off to college. What a nice stay. Food was so good & portions were amazing. This family owned truly cares about their guests & it shows!! We had a nice evening under the stars in the hot tub.

Staff very hospitable. Property well kept and safe. Most importantly, real full size pot of coffee with a basket of condiments for the coffee. Also, I can't forget Direct TV in my room. All this at no extra charge. Thank you Big Iron you're the best!

In all our road trips this family run motel is by far the number one place for hospitality , rest and recreation . They also provide great home cooking at their little concession restaurant and how often are you offered ice tea , beer and fresh baked cookies upon arrival ? Hands down my favorite place to lodge !
