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

Terrific place to stay. Right on the river with all the amenities you could ask for. Our cabin had it's own private deck with table, chairs, and umbrella. The views of the entire area are spectacular. The interior had two super comfy queen beds, a surprisingly good sized bathroom, windows galore, and a neat, functional kitchenette that was well stocked... More

Stayed 3 nights, and should have stayed longer. Stanley is a great little town in a spectacular setting. The Riverside Motel is within walking distance of restaurants, and has a great deck facing the river. Clean, spacious (by western motel standards), and comfortable. Will stay there again.

For a motel, this is really not so bad. Rooms are clean and spacious. However, it's also a stopover spot for motor cyclist and it can be annoying if they are stopping or just passing by the highway in the middle of the night. I wouldn't go there if I have kids. Try to get a room facing the river,... More

Riverside Motel is a fantastic place to stay in Stanley Idaho. The accommodations are very comfortable with phenomenal views. Rooms are extremely clean. The staff at the Motel go above and beyond to exceed guest expectations. We are repeat visitors and will continue to stay at the Riverside when in Stanley.

We loved the Riverside Motel, particularly the deck, which features table and chairs, so we could have our dinner outside and watch the Salmon River run directly below us. Yes, it is that close to the water. We'd forgotten that we had a kitchen, but it was terrific to cook up the morel mushrooms we'd gotten at Missoula Farmers Market,... More

This seems to be the best spot to stay in Stanley. The deck from our room is right on the river with spectacular views in every direction. The room was clean and comfortable. The town is so small you can walk anywhere from your hotel room.

Like other reviewers, this spot was our favourite on our two week trip which is high praise as we stayed in some super duper places. We had an upstairs room which was very quaint and comfy but the best part was sitting on the deck drinking in the view and listening to the river rush by. It doesn't get much... More
