Best 'Best Western' I've ever stayed at, and I've stayed at quite a few! Stellar lodge architecture of river rock, polished logs and exposed timbers and it's right on the river. Leave your window open a touch and the sound of rapid water whooshing close by will lull you to sleep (if the gratis milk and cookies in the lobby... More

This place costs more than the other hotels in town but worth it. Nice upgraded beds - extra pillows. Staff is exceptional- friendly and helpful they act like they like their jobs. Breakfast is just okay but great places to eat really good food is just a short walk down the street. Be sure to take the time to walk... More

Breakfast was filled with variety. The lodge... More

A great place to stay in the middle of nowhere overlooking the confluence of two rivers. We paid the big bucks for a room with a river view. Well worth it. Fridge, wi-fi. Microwave in common room. Comfortable firm bed. Milk and cookies at 8pm. Ample breakfast in the morning--try the coffee cake. Hiking trail info will be found at... More

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.
