This is not a fancy motel. It is one story and a lot of people with motorcycles stay here as well as fishermen. The managers (owners?) are wonderful people and know so much about the area and are very friendly. They offer free ice as many fishermen stay there. Our room was nice and we had 3 queen-size beds, Wi-Fi,...

Stayed here 3 nights, enjoyed it. WiFi was spotty - but that is because Riggins is on DSL, that's spotty anywhere. Rooms were clean, bathrooms large and bright, beds pretty good, parked 3 feet from our door. We will be back for sure, this is easily the best value for the money.

WEAR A LIFE JACKET if you are not going on a professionally guided river rafting trip, are fishing or you are in a kayak or canoe. The French Creek crossing up to the hot springs is very dangerous, but deceivingly so. Please wear a life jacket!

Super friendly owners. Clean room. No frills. We enjoyed being able to sit outside on the little patio. There is a laundry facility on site. Bed was comfy. Room with two beds has a divider curtain for privacy.

A last minute decision to go fishing made me question if rooms would be available in Riggins on a Friday night!! The Salmon River Motel did indeed. Very reasonable priced compared to others in the area. Much to our surprise the room was very clean and comfortable!! Even had coffee in the room along with refrigerator and microwave! The owners...

This is Grasshopper Diesel. It is One of the beautiful River I have seen in Idaho! It never ceases to amuse, this is the reason I wanted to go back in Idaho! It is a place of Solitude. Will come visit again. Great for summer Camping or River Rafting.

Having just stopped off at two privately run motels which were not to be recommended, Salmon River did not look promising. How wrong you can be. The room was spacious and well appointed with two chairs and a table. Bathroom was sufficient and very clean. It was a very hot day and the air conditioning had been put on for...
