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

Visited twice before with work, this time with family and every time has been a real pleasure. Staff excellent, facilities top notch, location superb. Riggins is a quiet place, but that's just what we wanted.

PROS: Great view of the river, clean rooms, the complimentary coupons were a nice touch!, friendly staff, pool open until midnight, lots of free cookies throughout the day, walking distance to most restaurants. CONS: The free breakfast was lacking. No biscuits and gravy, pre-made cold waffles, and no bagels. Most people including myself just ate toast and yogurt. They did... More

Thank you for staying at Salmon Rapids Lodge and taking the time to leave us your feedback. We regret that part of your stay was less than expected. Our complimentary breakfast is not intended to be the "full hot meal" you might get at a restaurant but rather a few options to get you started in the morning before heading... More

We stay here every year when we go white water rafting on the Salmon River. With few other choices, this is easily the best hotel in town. Nice views of the river if you're willing to pay a premium to be on the river side of the hotel, clean rooms, adequate buffet breakfast, an indoor pool, and a short walk... More

This motel used to be a Best Western. it's a good location to walk to the local restaurants. Rooms were very nice, and has a nice deck on the backside that you can go out and look over the hills. It's sits back off of highway 93 so you don't get the traffic noise. A large parking lot. The AC... More
