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.

The rooms are large, clean, well lit, with a small kitchen. The beds are very comfortable. The pillows/comforter on the beds and the exposed logs on the exterior wall add a modicum of charm. Many of the rooms directly overlook the Salmon River and have a large and comfortable balcony area for sitting (or drying out any wet gear). The... More

We were in room 4. It was delightfully furnished and the staff had thought of everything. Even coffee was provided. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching a thunderstorm go by.. We liked watching the fly fishermen that floated by on the river. Yes, there is a river that runs in back of the motel. Listening to the... More

We were SO happy the rooms our friends picked out! The location is right on the Salmon River, which was a treat! We slept with our window cracked open to hear it running while we slept. The amenities were clean and comfortable. Beds ultra soft (sheets were like butter). Super cozy/comfy. LOVED sitting on the patio watching the river flow... More

Nothing at all to complain about here! The motel is cute, clean, and in the BEST location ever, right on the river. We enjoyed the hosts, Patti and Frank, who gave us tips about the area. I wanted to go for a run and was guided to the prettiest, best route ever. My 16 year old daughters were mesmerized by... More

Every year my wife and I revisit the place we got married and we always stay with the kindest folks we have ever met. The Riverside Motel offers super great views or the Salmon River and the Sawtooth Mountains, we love Ms. Patti and Mr. Frank who own and run this awesome home away from home. The rooms are so...

This is a small motel located right by the Salmon river in Stanley, ID. I can't recommend this motel highly enough. The owners, Frank and Patti, are simply the nicest kindest people I have ever met. Really knowledgeable about the SNR area, friendly, genuinely good folks. The rooms are spacious, very clean and very well equipped. Decent internet connection. Spacious... More

Called to make a reservation after reading about the strange female owner. Sure enough, she was rude, unhelpful and ended up hanging up on me. Obviously this is not the first time and it wont be the last. Had my friend call the next day to see if he would get someone else, with almost the exact same response. Rude,... More

We have ben closed since the end of October and, due to that, just recently removed our phone from the " please e-mail us" mode. Before we reopen this week we have been on the road vacationing before our season begins. Cell phone service in remote parts of the Sierras and most of the Nevada and New Mexico..... big empty...

We stayed at the Riverfront in early September, 2014. The room was very clean and the Salmon River rushing by made for a relaxing evening. Although the my initial phone conversation with the wife was somewhat negative, her husband was a peach.
