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.

This motel is awesome. Before we even checked in Scott had us a beer and three glasses of sweet tea (yes sweet tea in Idaho) on the counter as we had been riding motorcycles all day.

The Big Iron Motel lived up to every expectation you read here on Trip Advisor. I have to admit -- I was leery at first. Even when we pulled into the parking lot -- both my husband and I were going......"I don't know about this!" We were in town because of a funeral. I called to book our room a... More
