have stayed at the riverside for one week each september for several years. it is terrific. the location is superb, literally right on the river, the back porch jutting out to the Salmon River. the rooms are incredibly clean, absolutely immaculate. as a bachelor, i found the rooms a little effeminate and almost schmaltzy, lots of lace and floral prints...

This was are first time to Idaho, and stanley is awesome! The riverside hotel is wonderful. The inside was spacious and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the tv had great selections.

I have reviewed the Riverside in the past, but since it has been six years since my last review, thought it time to relook at this establishment. I can only say that the high standards found before continue to apply. The rooms are spacious and uber-clean with relaxing appointments. Beds are still quite comfortable. The view from the deck still... More

We have stayed here a number of times and always found it quiet and peaceful. The creek side north building has a great two story deck with a BBQ for grilling. Each room has a small kitchenette so you can bring your own food and enjoy the view while dining. I have never had a meal in town that stood... More

This is a very nice little hotel in the mountains of Idaho. The town of Stanley is located at over 6,000 feet above sea level and has only about 63 year-round residents. My hotel room had two Queen beds and was located in the Sawtooth building. It was very clean and had good amenities. It also had both a front... More

We had a riverside room and it was cosy, clean and the view from the deck was wonderful. In the evening we sat with a bottle of wine and watched the cattle grazing and eagles soaring, the river flowing gently by. What a lovely setting off morning coffee as well! Frank was very helpful suggesting places to eat and places... More

We reserved our room about a month in advance. Since it was in advance, we basically prepaid for the room two weeks prior to arriving which was no big deal for us. On the day of arrival, we got caught in a downpour. We were attempting to park our motorcycles when the owner came out & told us he had... More

First of all there is no Hyatt or Marriott in or near Stanley. If you desire high comfort stay in Ketchum or Sun Valley ~1hour south. That being said the RM can't be beat for its location . Patti and Frank are helpful and responsive. The hydrogen sulfide ( rotten eggs smell) from tap is not in their control but... More

My husband and I had a room for two nights and upon settling in noticed a bad odor that we attributed to mold and mildew. There was also a leak in the toilet that we felt didn't get fixed properly. We spoke to the owner about it and he refused to move us or refund our money. We ended up... More

Stanley is a very small town in the midst of the Sawtooth mountains. The hotel is right by the river. Our room gave access to a shared balcony with views across the river to open farmland and the mountains beyond. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious with a kitchen with full stove and microwave with plenty of pots and... More
