“A great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Excellent location walking distance from most everything. Very clean with a great breakfast.
Our hostess and inn keeper Emi and dog Bird were friendly and very helpful. Also this is a pet friendly B&B.
I would highly recommend a stay here.

If you're into nostalgia, this is the place for you. It is an original "motor court" built in the 50's, updated without destroying some of the original charm (like the porcelain cabinets in your kitchenette. Super clean, friendly, and affordable, with a wonderful breakfast to send you off in the morning (our morning Emi fixed us banana stuffed french toast, regular french toast, bacon, fruit, juice, coffee, and yogurt). You are walking distance to almost everything in Pinedale. Don't miss the "Rock Rabbitt" (a great coffee shop and bar), and the Wind River Brewing Company brewpub and restaurant (great beer and smoked ribs).

Our small group stayed one of the cute cabins for 1 night. The cabins are older but well maintained. The facilities are comfortable and quaint. You are right around the corner from a great Brewery. It got chilly at night but the radiant ceiling heat was a great. The breakfast was amazing.

This is a unique lodging, next to Pine Creek, and in the trees just a short block off the main drag through Pinedale. There is an outdoor shop and a brew pub within a block, and all of downtown Pinedale is within walking distance. 9 Cabins, well kept, old style, with caring homestyle details. Emmy, the proprietress, is extremely helpful and welcoming. She has a storeroom for storing bags and supplies for customers who are heading for a Wind Rivers trailhead and do not want to leave valuables or food in their car. This was very helpful for us. The pancake, sausage and eggs breakfast cooked over the fire in the patio area near the river was delicious, fun and bountiful. No chain motel continental breakfast included fare here. More like chuck wagon delightful. I'll be back.

We've been to Pinedale multiple times and the Rivera is now our favorite place to stay. This week we stayed in a cabin on the creek with two bedrooms and had plenty of space for our toddler and dog. The place was charming, clean, and so quiet we could hear the creek from our room. The best part of our stay was Emi's hot breakfast, which fueled us for long day hikes and afternoons at the lake. And now our daughter won't stop asking to play with Bird again. Can't wait to go back.

This is not the place for you if you want look a like decor, routine breakfast menu and a business as usual reception. Rivera Lodge is a warm, friendly and home like place to rest, enjoy the sound of the river flowing by your window at night and to have a breakfast personally made and served by the owner/manager/gourmet cook, Emi who is ably assisted by Bird who welcomes all with a wag and smile. If you want to know what to see, where and how to get there, she can provide detailed directions, history and/or gossip about what is going on in the Pinedale area as well as Yellowstone, the Tetons and the Wind Rivers. This year friends and I got together to catch up after 40 years and it was the perfect place to do so. Quiet and yet lots to see and do.

Room Tip: All rooms are clean, uniquely decorated and comfortable.

I lived in Pinedale for 10 years and no idea that this was the best motel in town. Our cabin was in the pines; it was CLEAN, comfortable and complete with a kitchenette. Emi and Bird are very accommodating, welcoming, and hospitable. Bed was quite comfortable, the porch out front was very inviting, motel location being right on the creek is quite coveted, and of course (as we locals call it) Emi food for breakfast cooked/served over the campfire was the perfect touch. Very nostalgic motel. Thanks for a great stay.
