The staff at the Big Iron are top notch. Scott and Rose are as good and honest of people you will ever meet. We met the Big Iron a couple of years ago when we were hunting in the area, we had some vehicle problems. We got to the motel late, we were tired. Scott and Rose made us feel right at home. They made sure our vehicle got fixed the next day. They are a very pet friendly place ( Dogs and Horses). You will have a great stay at the Big Iron if you give them a chance to put you up for a stay.

Big Iron Motel is a friendly place to stay and very clean. We were greeted with beer and ice tea upon arrival. Can't beat that! Even the dogs were friendly and there to greet us. We will definitely stay there again when we venture to Riggins. It's reasonable and clean.

We loved staying at the Big Iron Motel. The owners were very nice. The biggest plus about this motel is that the room was very very clean, the staff was excellent and it was just an all around nice place to stay.

My wife and I stayed at the Big Iron Motel for two weeks in July with our dogs and it was wonderful. The owners Scott and Rose Galland greet you with a cold beer ,soda or home made sweet tea and cookies. The hospitality could not of been better. The rooms are clean and off the road so they are quiet and peaceful. They have table and chairs in front of each room so you can sit and watch the sunset. The river is right across the street so you can walk there for fishing, rafting or boating. Also the park is across the street for town events. Dogs loved it. Place for them to run and play and also go to the bathroom. Free movies and coffee in the room along with a small refrigerator and microwave. Wonderful place to stay!

Scott and Rose the owners of the Big Iron Motel welcome you, your dogs, horses and kids. Rose's cookies are the best. The rooms are away from the road so it is quiet. Rooms are big and very clean. They all have refrigerators and coffee pots. The river and park are right across the street. Lots of room for parking your car, truck or trailers. It is very clean and green. The view is beautiful. I will stay at the Big Iron every summer. Call ahead because I'm telling everyone it's the only place to stay in Riggins.

My friends and I stayed in The Big Iron Motel 15-Aug-09. We had gone to Riggins to raft and enjoy some Riggins Night Life afterwards. When we were done rafting we checked into this motel. We were greeted with a free complimentary drink and homemade cookies. The owners were extremely nice and had tons of VHS movies that we could have taken to our room and watched if we wanted to. The inside of the rooms were adorable. Very spacious and real comforters on the beds. The room was extremely clean. Coffee pots with real coffee mugs in the rooms. We ended up leaving a digital camera in the room and the owners called to tell me about it. I would definitely stay in this motel again.
