Can't add much to what has already been said. Enjoyed room as seating was very comfortable, and well lit, in contrast to so many other places we have stayed. View, anniversary acknowledgement, cookies, breakfast all great. Front desk clerk immediately made a change when she was told our reservation was for a first floor room. Also shared local information and... More

Great people, great service, delicious breakfast, fabulous view, clean and pretty hotel. I loved sitting on the back porch and hearing the river rage beneath me.

This Best Western was just such a delight. One of the hightlights of our road trip. The staff was so helpful and warm. The view is beautiful of the Salmon River, the lodge feeling of the lobby was comfortable and even the continental breakfast was exceptional. This is a place to stay and longer than a day if possible. A... More

Wife and I stayed here for two nights while we did a day long rafting trip. In the past, I have tended to avoid Best Western properties due to their mediocre quality. NOT HERE. The property is well maintained and spotless. Rooms are large and well appointed. Nice continnental breakfast (not a Hampton but still decent). While Riggins is a... More

We loved this place! On a meandering road trip, we found ourselves in Riggins by chance as night approached. We'd never heard of the town and assumed it offered little in the way of lodging. Needless to say, we were beyond surprised to see the lovely, lodge-like Best Western perched above the Salmon River ~ and even more surprised that... More

Typical Best Western with very nice staff. We will stay here again as it's right on the river and is a great stop as you drive the loop road through Hells Canyon NRA. Only two complaints: 1. The carpet throughout the property is worn and needs to be replaced; 2. there was a strong smell of urine in our bathroom,... More

Excellent service in a beautiful lodge in a beautiful town. We came in with some unusual requests for an academic trip to the area, and they accommodated every one with a smile. It just doesn't get much better.

The setting is beautiful, the facility is very clean and well-maintained and the staff are about the most friendly hotel personnel we've ever encountered. It felt more like a B & B - warm and cozy. Has a great "lodge" look and feel from the furnishings to the mountains to the Salmon River that borders the property. We've stayed here... More
