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

My wife and I stay with the Riverside Motel each time we go to Stanley and we cannot express enough the graciousness and courtesy we get every year. The owners have become friends and staying in the rooms at the motel are like staying in a home away from home. If you travel through Stanley, Idaho and want to stop... More

In mid-June, we stayed for 5 nights on the second floor, directly above the Salmon River. The back door opens to a deck, with spectacular views of the Sawtooth Mountains and cattle ranches. Extremely clean and welcoming décor with rustic pine walls and furnishings that gave the room a cabin-like, Western feel. Despite night-time temps in the low 30's, we... More

We had a great stay with our family of 4. We stayed in the cabin across the street and loved it. Very cute and comfortable. Had an issue with blowing a fuse in the bathroom and he came over immediately to fix it. Kitchenette had everything you would need. They request we wash dishes so we didn't use much as... More

After 2 nights of camping at Iron Creek campground, we decided to stay in Stanley so that we could leave early the next morning and not deal with packing up camp first. We booked this hotel about two weeks prior to our stay after having read the reviews on TA. This motel has units on either side of a fairly... More
