“Wonderful oasis”
Reviewed 20 September 2013 via mobile

This is a very nice hotel, a welcome oasis on a long road journey. Rooms comfortable and clean. PLenty of towels in the bathroom. Very nice breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice balcony or deck to watch the night sky or sea the sun come up. No elevator so if you have a lot of luggage suggest downstairs would be best.

If you are going through Riggins then the Salmon River Lodge is the place for you. We ended up staying 2 nights it was so comfortable we stayed downstairs in an awesome room with chairs on the balcony so we could look out at the mighty Salmon River and the amazing night sky. The staff was warm and friendly and the hotel a short walk to anywhere in Riggins. Whether driving through or looking for a place to come home to after a day of fishing, rafting, mining or sightseeing then this is a great option. Yes it was a bit more than the other places in town but it was our vacation!

I stayed there with my kids and grand kids. I was a very family oriented kid oriented place. The service was very good. It's in a beautiful setting among the mountains and with the river running in a small valley beneath it. The view from the patio was beautiful. It was clean and well kept... There was even free cookies and milk at 8pm.. I highly recommend it

This is a wonderful peaceful place with a very friendly atmosphere and an absolutly breathtaking view. We will definitely return.Evenings can be spent sitting on the patio drinking wine and enjoying the sound of the stream below.

Very inviting hotel on the river. We were upgraded to a river view suite when we asked for a ground floor room.
I was disappointed that there wasn't a dining room, after all one would expect a "Lodge" to be a full service property.
However, my ever friendly husband met some lovely Idahoans who were BBQing out back and invited us to join them.
A great evening was had.
The bed was not as comfortable as it could have been and it could have used some new pillows, but all and all we had a pleasant stay.

Beautiful place. The lodge motif is warm and inviting. Worth every penny, and I don't often say that. We could have spent hours sitting on the patio watching the river flow by. The breakfast is substantial, not just toast and coffee. Just wonderful!

This was my second visit. The first one was about 4 years ago for a rafting trip. This time it was for a girls getaway. Riggins for a girls getaway? I know! Not my first choice since I only knew it as a rafting town but this hotel has a EXCELLENT spa package at a VERY AFFORDABLE price. This package includes one night's lodging in a river view guestroom. The spa time is spending your morning or afternoon at Main Street Hair Co. where you are treated to a hot oil scalp treatment, spa pedicure, hairstyling (you will definitely need this after the hot oil treatment) and your choice of a 60 minute massage or 50 minute facial. All this for under $250/night! And the ladies at Main Street Hair Company are a talented group. You will experience excellent customer service and Linnaeah is a gifted masseuse. Maggie, nail technician, and Tracy, hair stylist, make you feel completely relaxed and pampered. The rooms in this hotel are very spacious and clean. The complimentary breakfast is fair in taste and choices. The staff is friendly and helpful. For a girls getaway on a budget, this hotel fit the bill perfectly!!!

Room Tip: Yes, like everyone has already noted, the rooms on the backside of the hotel are quieter and have a...
