The location of this hotel is great, right next to the river. The owners are probably the highlight of the visit, as they are exceptionally friendly and helpful. My room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. I did miss having a blow dryer. There is no A/C, but there is a fan which served nicely. I'd recommend this... More

First, the owner wants to sell and retire so maintenance is being deferred. Secondly, I am sure the units next to the Salmon River are great, but the other units across the street back up to an RV parking lot and face a busy highway. Logging trucks roared by our window beginning at 6:00. If you are looking for nature,... More

I almost hate to write this review...as others will find out about this gem! For more than four years, my family has been a guest at the Riverside Motel. We stay in the Cabin and the 4-plex. Without exception, the accommodations are 5-star. Comfort is paramount. The owners are top-notch! It is obvious that Patty and Frank truly care about... More

We were in Stanley for a near-by wedding, and having a room right on the Salmon River seemed a nice idea. The room was as advertised, right on the river, with a large, comfortable deck. Beds are comfortable, having a kitchenette is always a good thing, and few things are as conducive to good sleep as a gently flowing river... More

We really enjoy this motel, and try to stay in the unit on the river. Many reviewers complain about one of the owners, but I appreciate the fact that they are very discerning about their guests. One of the reasons we enjoy it so much is because they don't put up with boorish, rude, loud people. They can afford to... More

They would not take a reservation for three rooms on a Monday because it was not for two days. Don't get me wrong this is a great place to stay and Frank was great to us last time we stayed here last year but Patti is just rude. I have suggestion for them: how about increasing your 1 day rate... More

We stayed across the street from the main building which is on the river. The room was very clean; the small kitchenette had more than enough dishes and silverware. Wonderful accommodations while visiting Stanley Lake and Redfish Lake. Will return.

Very nice owner greeting us when we arrived, very helpful. Rooms are spacious, slightly dated, but well appointed and complete with kitchenette, good shower head in bathtub, and deck out back door is fabulous looking over Salmon River. Nice people staying there. Great price for what you get. Great location you can walk into town for dinner.

The room has a kitchenette and is very well-appointed and very comfortable. Most enjoyable are the decks on either side, especially the one overlooking the Salmon river. It has lovely tables and chairs; it was wonderful to return from a day of hiking to sit outside and look at the view. Patti and Frank have taken great care with this... More

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.
