NOTE: THIS 2-STORY HOTEL HAS NO ELEVATOR. We stayed 2 nights in a "view room" with a great view of the confluence of the Salmon River and the Little Salmon River. It was refreshing to be able to open the slider and listen to the rushing water. It's probably the nicest physical plant between McCall ID and Lewiston ID. It's... More

Thank you for the nice compliments about the cleanliness of the hotel. The housekeeping and maintenance departments work hard and we're glad you appreciate their efforts. No, unfortunately when the hotel was built in 2000, the design did not include an elevator. We hope this wasn't too much of an inconvenience on your vacation. Yes, our internet goes down intermittently... More

I write this review from my room overlooking the confluence of the Little Salmon River with the Salmon River. Absolutely unexcelled setting. We stay here at every opportunity. Never been disappointed. This room is twice as big and twice as tall as the Hilton Garden we had last night for the same price. River Rock Cafe across the street is... More

We were traveling north through Idaho and needed a place to stay. Our cousin had recommended the Salmon Rapids Lodge and we were not disappointed. The lodge itself is gorgeous. Exactly what you would picture for a western fishing lodge. (A nice enough setting that I went around taking pictures) The pool and hot tub were very nice and I... More

The Salmon Lodge is clean, quiet and central, with a very good restaurant called the River Rock Cafe across the street. The treats provided by the Salmon Lodge are a free cocktail, a buffet of cookies and beverages from 6 to 9 p.m. and a free breakfast.

Great little place on the river. Good salmon fishing in the town and even right behind the hotel. Place is clean. There was a hot tub outside where you could hear the river down below. Overall I liked the place but front desk staff needs some better training on reservations.

After driving all day we finally arrived in Riggins and passed by several motels before noticing the sign of the Salmon Rapids Lodge. The hotel grounds looked so inviting, with large lush lawns and beautiful landscaping, lots of trees and the bird were singing a welcome chorus "get out of that car and stay with us" ha ha Truly a...

This is a really pleasant place to stay, and to hold meetings in. The lobby, of course, has that amazing view (or you can sit right outside on the patio in good weather for an even better look at the river). The carpets are showing their age, but the furniture is still in pretty good shape and the "lodge" theme... More

We spent two nights at the Salmon River Lodge. Rooms are spacious and comfy. We recommend getting a 2nd floor room overlooking the river - a nice view. The hotel serves an adequate breakfast which met the needs for the family. Front desk staff was helpful.
