very nice place, right on river. they rent rafts and rooms are nice. Their wifi access is horrible however-not a huge deal given the surroundings but don't stay there and think you'll have it cause you won't.

We stayed 4 nights at the Riverside Motel. The first night we stayed across the street in room 23. It was a comfortable room with a kitchenette. The next night we moved across the street near the river in room 6. Here's what you need to know: 1. No pets. 2. Rooms have comfortable beds. If you leave the windows... More

Midway through our camping vacation in Idaho we decided to take a break from the tent and sleeping bags. We inquired at the Riverside and learned they had just had a cancellation and there was a vacancy. We got a ground floor room that made it easy to get stuff to and from the car. The back side of the... More

Being 15 ft. from the edge of the Salmon River with the great mountains in the background, one could not ask for a better place to stay. The rooms were extremely clean, well laid-out and provided everything one would need to stay one to twenty days. The kitchenette is well stocked. The management could not be more friendly or helpful.... More

I couldn't find a pet policy on their website, and I never go anywhere without my dog. I tried to call five times over the space of two hours to ask about their pet policy. Nobody picked up, no answering machine, nothing. I sent an e-mail, no response. They must not want my business very badly.

The management was very rude and unprofessional. They felt the need to go over the policy of having no visitors, quiet time after 10, and no smoking with us personally. They watched our activities as we came and went, very strange and disconcerting! The room was small and shabby, and not worth the price. Look elsewhere!

While it has been a year since I stayed here, I continue to hear good things about the Riverside. We always loved the deck overlooking the Salmon river and the opportunity to relax and enjoy the stunning scenery. Nothing better.

I so wanted to love this motel-especially for the $182/night we paid! Unfortunately in this situation we did not get what we paid for. Now I know why waiting until the last minute is not my typical style. When I booked for the 4th of July weekend in May, the only room available was the Boat House room, which I... More

There is nothing like sitting on the deck with the sound of the river and a beautiful view of the Sawtooths to feed your soul. Very comfortable room with home-like touches. A lovely place I could return to again and again.
