My wife and I stay with the Riverside Motel each time we go to Stanley and we cannot express enough the graciousness and courtesy we get every year. The owners have become friends and staying in the rooms at the motel are like staying in a home away from home. If you travel through Stanley, Idaho and want to stop... More

In mid-June, we stayed for 5 nights on the second floor, directly above the Salmon River. The back door opens to a deck, with spectacular views of the Sawtooth Mountains and cattle ranches. Extremely clean and welcoming décor with rustic pine walls and furnishings that gave the room a cabin-like, Western feel. Despite night-time temps in the low 30's, we... More

We had a great stay with our family of 4. We stayed in the cabin across the street and loved it. Very cute and comfortable. Had an issue with blowing a fuse in the bathroom and he came over immediately to fix it. Kitchenette had everything you would need. They request we wash dishes so we didn't use much as... More

After 2 nights of camping at Iron Creek campground, we decided to stay in Stanley so that we could leave early the next morning and not deal with packing up camp first. We booked this hotel about two weeks prior to our stay after having read the reviews on TA. This motel has units on either side of a fairly... More

Rooms were sparkling clean; beds were heavenly, and amenities were perfect. We've been the road for a week and these were best beds we had. Manager was very gracious to stay after hours as we checked in late on a Sunday night. Stanley is picturesque, as you know, and the motel only added to the evening. We'll come back for... More

This motel is right by a river. We went at the beginning of June and it was still cool, snowed a little. It was so relaxing. The room was immaculate. Just plain comfortable with beautiful views from the back porch and front porch.

If you think a 5 star designation only applies to a place with golf course and pool, don’t even think of coming to Stanley! Here the draw is the beauty of the area, and this is the perfect place to take it all in! We stayed on the second floor in room 6 with 2 queen beds, table and chairs,... More

My gosh Stanley, ID is a stunningly beautiful area. If you like to fish, hike, or just soak in nature, this is your place. The Riverside Motel is a gem. When we entered our room, the first thing we noticed was how "new" the room smelled. Yeah, we are big "smell" people, don't judge. We were on the bottom floor... More

If you are heading to the Sawtooth Mountains and Stanley area, this is the place to stay. You will find a great location on the river, immaculate rooms with attractive décor, a very functional kitchenette with all necessary accessories for light meals. You will enjoy the relaxing sounds of the river and spectacular views from the decks on both sides... More

On our 3 weeks trip through USA Northwest we had one real rainy (and snowy) day. And this was in Stanley. But luckily we stayed at the Riverside Motel where we enjoyed the friendly welcome as well as the very nice and spacious room with a true touch of country-style. We could also imagine how beautiful it must be sitting... More
