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 !

Don't let the exterior fool you. This older motel has been completely refurbished. Spotless rooms with big comfy bed. Wifi, big screen TV and a large coffee pot made our stay here great. Excellent location for fishing and seeing a beautiful spot in Idaho. The owners truly care.

To start, the staff was great. And the rate was great too. The parking lot was big enough for my big rig so it is big enough for lots of trucks with boats. The room was really clean, and well taken care of. For how old this motel is you can tell the owners care. If I get the chance... More

Stayed during a rafting weekend, loved the hot tub and the food truck dinner fresh cooked. Although I do not like either they offer free beer or ice tea and homemade cookies. I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in the Riggins area!

We were able to stay again at the Big Iron Motel in Riggins and again were amazed at the wonderful hospitality of the owners and their family. Rooms always clean and well stocked. The owners have now opened a Big Iron Resturant and the food is excellent, Asian, American and Mexican. This is a town of 410 population and the... More

This motel was very clean & the rooms were very affordable. When we checked in we were offered a beverage. They have a food truck on site which you can order dinner & have it delivered to your room which is always a plus. We had an issue with the drain in our shower so the owner offered us the... More

Great place to stay in Riggins. Everyone was very friendly and our dog was welcome. They offered us beer, sweet tea and homemade cookies at check-in. Room was clean with coffee, frig and microwave. We had our choice of homemade Mexican, Chinese or American food made right there. We will be back.
