“Fantastic Family Feel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

We were placed in this hotel in conjunction with a recent rafting trip and could not have been happier. We are use to staying at 4 and 5 star hotels. This little family ran motel has a ton of heart. The huge room was very clean. Very quite surroundings, and the owners made us feel like personal guests rather then clients. The food was very tasty. We will be back!

Great place to stay! Clean, quiet, inexpensive, comfortable king-sized bed, accommodating to all your needs: fridge, microwave, Internet access, delicious and inexpensive home-made room service meals--all the comforts of home, with a smile.

The owners work hard and take pride in running a top-notch business, and it shows. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone staying here. So glad we found it!

Room Tip: All rooms are ground-level and away from the main street with parking right in front of your door.

This family owned motel is fine tuned to make you feel at home and appreciated. we have stayed at the Big Iron many times and plan our travels to include a stay whenever possable. Scott and Rose are constantly on the alert to assure you have a comfortable & enjoyable stay. Their 2 freindly black labs, Katie and Buck always welcome you too. My wife so enjoys watching the deer that many times frequent motel or surounding hills. You are always welcomed with a friendly smile and a cold beverage upon arrival plus it's very afordable and quit. The rooms are clean and the bedding smells so nice you must force yourself to get up in the morning. When traveling north in Idaho, a night at the Big Iron is a must for us.

Room Tip: Room 19 thru 21 are best for deer viewing plus Rose has a great room service menue.

The Big Iron sits in one of the most spectacular settings in Idaho. Canyon mountains frame a wild river whose waters create a lullaby for a restful sleep. Rose and Scott Galland demonstrate true hospitality at the Big Iron. The rooms are reminiscent of an earlier era, clean and tidy with a homey atmosphere. Guests are treated to homemade cookies and a free beverage (local coffee and specialty brews available). Despite the quaint appearance, the Big Iron features modern amenities, including wifi and the affordable rates belie the outstanding service that you'll receive. Pets are welcome, and parking is sufficient to accommodate horse trailers. This is the place to stay whether you are spending one night or a week.

Stayed at the Big Iron Aug. 5 &6 2011 with a group of friends.... had the most AMAZING time. Beds were fantastic, decor was updated....and complimentary beer, ice tea and cookies....room came with a coffee pot, microwave and fridge.... even had super soft pillows unlike those other motels !!!.....Scott and Rose were the best host/hostess I have ever had....can not say enough about the service and quality of our stay........would definately be a shame for anyone to stay anywhere else other than the Big Iron................EXCELLENT does not even begin to describe this place !!! Making my reservations for next year, right now because I do not want to be left out in the cold by staying somewhere else !!!
