Booked here because of a trip advisor review and am not disappointed. Pulled in yesterday after a very hot MC ride from Lolo, MT. Was greeted by the owner and offered a beer, juice, or iced tea...before we even registered. That was a first. Checked in parked bike, entered room. AC was on high and the room was almost cold....Perfect... More

My wife and I are riding our bicycles across the country and have stayed in dozens of motels/hotels/inns since beginning our journey over 3,000 miles ago. This is one of the best places we've stayed, and when you consider the price, it's probably the best! When we pulled into Riggins, we saw that there is a $25 city tax on... More

Better than expected! From the look of the outside I wasn't expecting much but we're offered beer, soda, tea, and cookies on check-in (yes, free beer!) And the room was great. Great price too! True there's no river view but you'll probably be on the river all day anyway...and if not, it's right across the street. Great place. Stay here.

We stayed one night here in Riggins to do a rafting trip. The hotel owner greeted us with ice tea or beer and cookies for kids. We sat outside or room which looks out into the parking lot and spied the hot tub under the trees. The jets were strong and the view off the canyon was wonderful. It was... More

I can't say enough good things about this motel. Upon check-in they offer you beer or iced tea, rooms are clean and decently appointed, the people who run and/or own this motel are some of the most helpful people I've ever met . The food truck is fantastic as well. I highly recommend this motel if you're in Riggins !... More

On a recent jet boat trip to Riggins, Idaho, I had the opportunity to stay with the folks at The Big Iron Motel. When I pulled up to the office I was pleasantly greeted, promptly checked in and offered a cold beer or soda, nice touch!! The exterior of the motel and the grounds are quiet, a little on the...
