This motel is awesome. Before we even checked in Scott had us a beer and three glasses of sweet tea (yes sweet tea in Idaho) on the counter as we had been riding motorcycles all day. The rooms were outstanding with great beds and plenty of room to spread out. Buck the dog even came by to make sure everything was ok. And the price for the room was outstanding. Scott and Rose Hall and really make you feel at home. I would recommend their place to anyone and the drive from Whitebird to the hotel is just beautiful. Thank you to Scott, Rose and their kids for a great night. Everyone should stay at the Big Iron Motel.

The Big Iron Motel lived up to every expectation you read here on Trip Advisor. I have to admit -- I was leery at first. Even when we pulled into the parking lot -- both my husband and I were going......"I don't know about this!"

We were in town because of a funeral. I called to book our room a few days before and was pleasantly surprised on how easy the conversation went as I would prefer o book online. For $60/night -- my husband and I could have a king bed room. I was told -- "It's very nice and spacious" and it was!

We checked in early (after the funeral was over and before the reception) because as we were so HOT and needed to cool off. It was 100 degrees that day. We found out later that my husband's cousins tried to check into the "big" lodge in town 1/2 hour early and found out they couldn't!

I loved pulling up right in front of the door to our room. I miss that with hotels where you have to drag your luggage in and all around. My motel or hotel rooms have to be CLEAN and immaculate and this room was! There is not thing that I could complain about. The bed was comfortable. The outlay of the room was great and the air conditioning WORKED FANTASTIC! Our room was nice and cold!

I loved the fact that we both received can of beer upon check-in. (You can choose ice tea instead.) Who else does that?

I am now thinking of grabbing my whole family and heading to Riggins for some rafting and having us all stay at the Big Iron!

I work all over the lower 48 and have stayed in hundreds of motels in my travels. I live in Idaho and travel N. to S. a couple of times a year. I found the Big Iron 3 years ago while Salmon fishing and have stayed 4 times since. This is my favorite place to stay of all of the motels I have stayed. The rooms are always very clean. The owners, Scott and Rose and their family are as nice as you could want. They make every effort to make your stay enjoyable.The price is very affordable. I have paid a lot more for far less. I tell everyone I talk to that is going through Riggins to stay there. I look forward to staying and having a fresh cookie. Scott and Rose are always working to improve their business and make it better for those of us who stay there.

Room Tip: all the rooms we've stayed in were nice.
