Two of my teenage children and I stayed here for one night during our rafting/kayaking adventure in the Sawtooth area. It's a very typical accommodation with shoddy service and attitude from the 20-yr olds working the reception desk. But what's splendid about the place is that it's right on the river which is nothing more than a knee-deep stream on... More

Our group consisted of 3 senior couples. We had reserved 3 of the 4 rooms for 2 nights on the second (top) floor of main building. Motel is very close to highway but back decks, overlooking the Salmon River, open fields and mountains are a different world. We watched a young eagle taking off and landing for over an hour....

This property right on the river is a jewel. We were in one of the downstairs units which has a large deck. The kitchen was just what we needed to heat up dinner so we could stay in and enjoy our beautiful view. Everything was spotless. Small grocery store two minutes away.

Visiting this area for the first time for a family wedding. Stanley is very small and scenic. We arrived around 2:00 on a Friday, and were checked in a bit early (once they ascertained our room was ready). We had reserved unit #8, upstairs and overlooking the Salmon River. It was like a small apartment, with a nice private deck,... More

Stayed above the boathouse unit (#9) Was surprised how spacious and nice it was. While there were only two of us, there were need for 5-6. Room was clean, and most comfortable bed. Owner /operators Pam and Frank had helpful advice for things to do and were fun to talk to. Great Value- Convienent location. Would like to return!!

This motel has been on my mind for many years! I noticed it many years ago while traveling through Stanley, Id and always knew I'd be back to overnight. It is so peaceful sitting on the upper riverside deck just watching the small rapids and hearing the peaceful water sound at night. The area has grown, but the serenity is... More

This was our fifth visit to Stanley, both the scenery and hospitality keep bringing us back. The Riverside offers river views and country charm of a log cabin. The beds were extremely comfortable after a long day's ride. Our hosts were more than accommodating making sure we had good access and parking for the motorbike. We have stayed in groups... More

We stayed in a second floor king room and it was so relaxing to lie in bed listening to the river while watching the cows graze across the river. Patti and Frank are so nice and helpful! Comfortable and firm bed. Kitchenette was well equipped so we could prepare several meals throughout our stay. Very clean and nicely decorated.

We stayed in Stanley 3 nights for a wedding and were very pleased with the Riverside Motel. Friendly staff, clean rooms, and lovely views of the river. When we were not with the wedding we enjoyed relaxing on the back deck, listening to the river, and watching the cows graze. It's slightly outside of the "downtown", but only about a... More

Perfectly appointed log cabin feel - touches of mountain luxury include the fully equipped kitchenette and REAL coffee. Noticed some guests ate dinners on the spacious deck tho' we took advantage of fine dining in Stanley (try REDD's). After a day of touring and hiking the Sawtooth mountains it is a real treat to rest and reflect on the deck... More
