I recently stayed here after driving from Butte Montana to San Francisco. On such a trip one can imagine that I stayed at many different places along the way. By the time I arrived at River's Fork I had already spent a good amount of time on the road and was anxious to find a quiet place with lots of great scenery--I wasn't disappointed with North Fork. The earlier reviews said the owners were VERY friendly and very helpful--this is still very much the case. What really makes the place stand out is its location...it's RIGHT on the river in a beautiful spot. The location is very quiet. My only disappointment was that I was on a tight timetable and could only stay there for a day. I very much appreciate the other reviewers' reviews they are what convinced me to stay here.
As hotel/motels go the rooms are very large and clean. They could use a little renovation, but in a location like that you'd be insane to spend much time in your room. The only real draw back is that there's really nothing around North Fork. The closest town of any size is Salmon and there's not a great deal to do there if you're a "city person." There is a little cafe right next door to the North Fork Lodge and the food is decent diner-type food.
One real bonus here is that the Lodge offers free WiFi in the rooms. I didn't expect that at such an out of the way place. It was nice to have that sense of being away from it all, while still being able to feel somewhat connected with the rest of the world.
