I probably could have found a more reasonable motel for our last night on the road, and I wished we would have arrived earlier to enjoy the pool. Beautiful view. It would be a great place for an extended stay. It was recommended by a friend, but being on a motorcycle wasn't user friendly for us. We were on the... More

On September 6th my husband and I were married at Salmon Rapids Lodge. One of my bridesmaids came across the lodge and pointed me in their direction, I couldn't be more happy with our experience. I worked with the sales director Rachel Diaz, who was absolutely amazing to work with. She went above and beyond to help in any way... More

This is a beautiful motel set on the Salmon River in Riggins, ID. Watch the deer, the rafters or just the trees moving in the breeze right from the balcony of your room. Just a stones throw from the river as well as great places to eat. Don't forget to get the evening cookies.

Stopped here for an overnight. Beautiful location on the Little Salmon River. We had a queen room suite with couch and a balcony overlooking River. Spacious room. Weather was perfect for keeping sliding door open using screen door so we could hear River all night. In morning saw several groups of deer come up from the River. Staff very friendly... More

If you are traveling on US95 in Idaho, don't miss this gem in Riggins. We had a terrific room overlooking the confluence of the Salmon and Little Salmon rivers, with big mountains in the background. Really nice rooms, quiet, very friendly front desk people, and a "great room" with a great view to eat breakfast. We sat outside on their... More

We stumbled on to the Salmon Rapids Lodge on the way from St. Marie's Idaho to Sun Valley. It was an unexpected great experience. The lodge sits at the confluence of two rivers in a dramatic canyon. We stayed in a river side deluxe king room. The rooms are very clean with a great bed and seating area with couch,... More

OK to start with Riggins is not New York. But the Salmon Rapids Lodge is 1st rate. We stayed on the first floor facing the river and the view was wonderful. Very clean and a good nights sleep. The breakfast was OK for a "free" breakfast and right down the street is great coffee shop. If you are on the... More

Be sure you pay the extra for the riverside view. The rooms were spacious with a separate sitting area and would be good for a family. The staff was extremely helpful and suggested a nice hike to Hells Gate.

We stayed at the Salmon Rapids Lodge the night before our two day rafting trip on the Salmon River. Riggins is a small town, and from our drive through it, this was definitely the best hotel to stay in. It's right on the river...definitely suggest requesting a river-side room as the other side faces the parking lot. Breakfast was included... More
