I spent one night here while travelling. I was greated by friendly owners and they even offered cookies as a treat on check in! The room was in a quiet location and this had the most comfortable bed I have slept in when travelling. Be sure to make this your place of rest when in Riggins!

My husband and I came to watch our son run a race. The room was comfortable and clean. Every guest I met was friendly and seemed happy and relaxed. A good sign. When I checked in, there was a smiling young lab, followed by a friendly, helpful clerk. The family who own and run it, also have a small patio...

This was one of our first vacations this year and we were so happy we stayed here. The employee's were kind and the catering service for dinner was heavenly. We had a wonderful time and would go back there again. Our dog loved it also.

Rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable, and the price is good. There is a outdoor hot tub and food truck. Walking distance to restaurants/bars. If you need a espresso drink, there...

Booked here because of a trip advisor review and am not disappointed. Pulled in yesterday after a very hot MC ride from Lolo, MT. Was greeted by the owner and offered a beer, juice, or iced tea...before we even registered. That was a first. Checked in parked bike, entered room. AC was on high and the room was almost cold....Perfect...

My wife and I are riding our bicycles across the country and have stayed in dozens of motels/hotels/inns since beginning our journey over 3,000 miles ago. This is one of the best places we've stayed, and when you consider the price, it's probably the best! When we pulled into Riggins, we saw that there is a $25 city tax on...
