What a wonderful place to stay. We did not stay on the river because it was an overnight, but would have if we had stayed longer. Wonderful lodge decor and feeling . Awesome, friendly staff, Beautiful patio overlooking the river. Warm cookies in the evening, what more could you ask for. Oh, great breakfast in the morning too.

We stayed here for a 50th class reunion on September 14/15, 2012. With a river view room, we could see the picturesque old sawmill across the river, once the lifeblood of Riggins. No longer in operation it is still beautiful and adds ambiance. The hotel has an inviting lobby with a two story stone fireplace and comfortable chairs for gathering... More

Riggins pop less than 1000. Best Western worth every cent. Nice place in great location. Beautiful and reasonably priced, Nice restaurants within walking distance. Close to jet boats and white water rafting

Rachel and the entire staff at the lodge were more than accomodating. They truly went above and beyond! The rooms were clean, large, comforatble and completely updated. The view and surrounding areas were breathtaking! I WILL stay here again and recommend the lodge to everyone I know.

Location is great right next to the river. The room was large enough and clean. Employees were all very pleasant and helpful. Sat outside on the deck in the evening. The stars were out the river rushing by. It was ideal. Would definintely stay here again.

The Salmon Rapids Lodge is the perfect example if how the combination of a great staff and a few extra touches make a world of difference when it comes to hospitality. The structure of the hotel is the first thing that sets it apart from a typical Best Western. The vaulted ceilings, stone fireplace, hanging lanterns and large picture windows... More

I have stayed here several times for business trips. This hotel is an unexpected pleasure in an isolated small town setting. The rooms are very large and, most importantly, very clean. Bed very comfortable, rooms quiet at night. The room has a nice desk for occasional work, and a nice chair to enjoy a book in the evening. The common... More

The hotel is so nice! We have loved staying here. Amenities like china coffee cups and real glass glasses are small details that mean a lot to tired travelers! The location overlooking the river is another great detail. There ar not a lot of restaurants nearby, but we walked to a great rib place and loved that as well! Highly... More

We stayed two nights while rafting on the Salmon River in late June. It is beautiful inside and out! The front desk clerks couldn't have been nicer. Our room was large, clean and comfortable with great views of the river. The great room where breakfast is served is so inviting and breakfast provided many great choices. The back patio was...

After a two day drive from Denver to Riggins, we were pleasantly surprised driving up to this hotel where we stayed one night before launching on a 4 day Lower Salmon River raft trip. The hotel was beautiful inside and out, with amazing views. The front desk clerk switched our room to a room overlooking the Salmon, without charging us... More
