“A Stunner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I write this review from my room overlooking the confluence of the Little Salmon River with the Salmon River. Absolutely unexcelled setting. We stay here at every opportunity. Never been disappointed. This room is twice as big and twice as tall as the Hilton Garden we had last night for the same price. River Rock Cafe across the street is great.

They have a great pool by motel/lodge standards. Maintenance is spot on and the woodsy furniture in the common area is all freshly varnished.

Room Tip: If you have mobility issues note that there is no elevator to the second floor.

We were traveling north through Idaho and needed a place to stay. Our cousin had recommended the Salmon Rapids Lodge and we were not disappointed. The lodge itself is gorgeous. Exactly what you would picture for a western fishing lodge. (A nice enough setting that I went around taking pictures) The pool and hot tub were very nice and I appreciated the inexpensive coin laundry provided for guests after traveling with kids for a week! Breakfast was a nice treat after a lot of cold cereal at other hotels. I loved having coffee and hot chocolate available all of the time. P.S. The front desk also recommend the River Rock Café just down the road for dinner and it was terrific!

The Salmon Lodge is clean, quiet and central, with a very good restaurant called the River Rock Cafe across the street.

The treats provided by the Salmon Lodge are a free cocktail, a buffet of cookies and beverages from 6 to 9 p.m. and a free breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the road rather than the highway are less expensive.

Great little place on the river. Good salmon fishing in the town and even right behind the hotel. Place is clean. There was a hot tub outside where you could hear the river down below. Overall I liked the place but front desk staff needs some better training on reservations.

After driving all day we finally arrived in Riggins and passed by several motels before noticing the sign of the Salmon Rapids Lodge. The hotel grounds looked so inviting, with large lush lawns and beautiful landscaping, lots of trees and the bird were singing a welcome chorus "get out of that car and stay with us" ha ha Truly a breath of fresh air, right on the river, a luxurious hotel with a great atmosphere, a huge lobby and lounge area with a rock fireplace, vaulted ceilings, a desk with a guest computer, comfortable sofa's and chairs everywhere. There were board games for kids and a very large outdoor patio with chairs overlooking the river. Our room was over-sized, huge with two queen size beds, very high ceilings gave it an extra spacious feeling, a small desk, comfy arm chair with ottoman, sliding doors to private patio where we were treated to the lovely road of the rapids. The room was very clean and the whole Lodge gave the feeling of being in a luxury resort. The room also had a mini fridge and coffee maker, the bathroom with bath and toilet is separate from the kitchenette. The Lodge has an indoor pool.
Friendly staff at check-in. Breakfast was included, unfortunately we had a late start and the coffee had run out but this was replaced with a fresh batch very quickly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river

This is a really pleasant place to stay, and to hold meetings in. The lobby, of course, has that amazing view (or you can sit right outside on the patio in good weather for an even better look at the river). The carpets are showing their age, but the furniture is still in pretty good shape and the "lodge" theme doesn't tend to date so fast as other decors. Friendly staff, good meeting facilities, comfortable mattresses & pillows. The complimentary breakfast is pretty sparse, though, and the bathrrooms aren't as nice as the norm now is in newer hotels. Naturally, try to get a room in back on the river side.
