“Jewel of a motel”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Enjoyed my stay at the Big iron for the Ride and Raft weekend. Scott and Rose are amazing people. They are biker friendly and even played a game or two with us. Housekeeping was great to make sure we had fresh towels and anything else we needed. They care about the people who stay there at the Big Iron. Looking forward to staying again.

This was our 5th annual 'Ride~N~Raft' trip and our third year in a row at the Big Iron Motel. The first year we stayed here I was amazed by the service and the quality of the rooms. The last two years I've been absolutely blown away; I don't know how they do it but they keep raising the bar. The rooms, beds, food..... the entire experience is top notch.
I will be back next year.... and the year after that.... and the year after that......
Thank You Big Iron for going out of your way to help make our trip an unbelievable experience... again!

Inside of room was VERY clean & comfortable. The outside on the other hand, needs a lot of up dating & repair work. Was a little worried when we drove up to the door of our room but was nicely surprised once inside. Would use this Motel if in the area again.

This is the second time we have stayed at this beautiful, cozy Motel. The accommodations are delightful (just like Scott and his beautiful family). The rooms are spacious, very clean and the beds are most comfortable that we have ever slept on (not even the "big name" chains can beat it)! Along with check-in, you are offered home baked cookies/and choice of beverage. WOW! What a nice welcome. With all the choices in Riggins, it's worth being "spoiled" at a home away from home. As part of the Biker community, we will always choose your Motel as #1, and willingly refer friends and family to your business. Thanks for all you have done for so many of us..year after year!! See ya next August! <3

Wow! The friendly owners, Scott & Rose, met us at check-in offering us fresh homemade cookies & a cool drink! The room was one of the best we've stayed in in recent years. It was clean, comfortable bed, flat screen tv with lots of channels, fridge, microwave & strong wifi, all for a very reasonable rate. Will definitely stay there again, if in this beautiful part of the country.

We stopped by the Big Iron to stay overnight during our steelhead fishing trip. We were pleasantly surprised by the big rooms with a king sized bed....and very clean! We were offered iced tea and fresh baked cookies at checkin. I would recommend staying here to anyone passing through Riggins.
