I spent two days at the Big Iron Motel and was sorry I had to leave. The rooms are clean, quiet, comfortable, updated and relaxing. The view from our room as we sat on our deck chairs was gorgeous. Riggins itself is an amazing get away. Big Iron Motel also provides some of the best food. We had tacos three... More

The owners are great and the rooms have everything you need; plus the food is very good! I've stayed several days at a time and feel quite safe when by myself too. Lots of parking. I highly recommend this place!!!

Stopped in Riggins for diner on my way to McCall for skiing next afternoon. I finally decided to stay there as it was late and I'm happy I did. The first night was quiet, occupancy was low and the adjacent room was empty. On my second night, people arrived in the middle of the night (3-4AM) making much noise for... More

I needed a place to stay overnight on my way to Elk City. I got in late and left early. No computer at the front desk-paper planner with reservations in pencil. Free home made ice tea at checkin which was excellent. Clean comfortable room. Older property but rooms look recently redone. Very reasonable room rate.

We stayed two nights and it was very clean and comfortable. They have a hot tub, but no pool. They have a permanent food truck that offers good reasonable food. They deliver to your room. Direct TV. Refrigerator. Microwave. Coffee maker. Outside table and chairs.

After a late night of driving I was never so happy to lay down here! FYI stay off unpaved roads unless you have a Forestry map! The bed was comfortable, room was clean, front desk had ice cold tea for us and even let me use a shop-vac to sweep the dust out of our car, Thank you Big Iron... More

This is an older motel but good for the value. We were offered a complimentary beer or iced tea when we checked in. Plenty of parking for boats and trailers. The food truck food was not good. We ordered Chinese food and the chicken was store bought nuggets and the spicy fried rice was from a box.

Last time, I stayed at the expensive lodge in Riggins but this time I stayed at the Big Iron and really liked the large rooms and the friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are clean and the place is quiet. The evening "restaurant" --- a trailer parked in the motel grounds -- has great food.

I was just there with a large group. The rooms were quiet, large, with comfortable beds. The office gives everyone a free beer when you sign in and a free cookies daily. I would stay there again. It is right across from the city park.

If you are looking for clean rooms, great service and the best food in town, this is the place to stay. The owners, Scoot and Rose, definitely place there guest first. We have stayed here several times and would not even consider staying anywhere else.
