I stayed at the SRL on my way driving to Phoenix, AZ. Our room was clean and ready for us when we got there. The beds and linens were very nice. There was an indoor pool, but it was too chilly to swim in. We opted for the jacuzzi, however it was full of stink bugs and debris. The setting... More

We came into Riggins, sight unseen. TripAdvisor gave this property good ratings, so we gave it a try. We were given a room, and found someone had smoked in it, and asked to be moved. The staff moved us in a very friendly and patient manner. They also charged us for just one night of pet fee when we decided... More

Beautiful room and setting. Idaho county would do well to advertise that people on the Salmon River should wear life jackets at all times. Whether fishing, hiking and crossing a river, boating, etc., please wear a life jacket at all times. The Salmon River is very dangerous.

This was my first time staying here. Was very surprised with the facility, staff and room. The front deck was very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and spacious. I am a light sleeper and this facility met my needs. The bed was very comfortable. As a side note, my husband and I are traveling here next summer. Reservations... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour group. The building is beautiful and the views from our room upstairs was great. I suggest that you ask for a room facing the river. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was pretty good although some fruit would be a great addition. The cookies that are... More

We loved the location, breakfast was above average, clean rooms, pet friendly and the only reason I gave it a 4 stars is the beds are extremely hard and the sheets rough. Other than that we really like this hotel.

Great location with exceptional service. We booked two rooms but they were not next to each other. The staff switched rooms, no questions asked. The patio is really nice and so is the pool. The only real knock on this place is the breakfast. We would stay here again.

Great location and descent price. We booked a non smoking room but when I went into the room I could smell cigarette smell. I said something to the front desk and her response was that it was dust and didn't try to rectify the situation. I guess they were pretty booked and didn't want to try to move us to... More

Stayed at Salmon Rapids Lodge 1 night before and 1 night after a fishing/rafting trip. Great location and beautiful scenery outside the back of the lodge at sunset. Solid hotel with a couple of minor nits: 1) the breakfast is not befitting of the hotel as it was more in line with a lower star property. 2) My second room... More

Only problem we had with this gorgeous place was that it is two floors with no elevator. I had asked for a ground floor room since we carry a lot of luggage and it is hard lugging it up flights of stairs when you are beat from riding 400+ miles on a bike. When we arrived to check in, we... More
