First Rate I can't complain. Our room was spotless. Tim the desk guy couldn't have been more helpful. Price was more than fair. I really really appreciate no pets. I like animals but some owners allow them on beds, don't pick up after them and shouldn't be in the same room with non pet people. Thank you. Nice resteraunt attached...

We chose this hotel for several reasons: great reviews on Trip Advisor, parking in front of the room, and it's not a boring chain hotel. Because of the amount of things we felt necessary to carry to our room, parking right in front of the door was a great advantage; however, a disadvantage of the outside room was unreliable wi-fi....

Super clean motel with a retro feel. We were there off season, so the pool was closed, but it is huge, and looked well taken care of. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

My husband and I visit Mountain Home once a year. In the past, we have stayed at a large chain hotel. This time, thanks to reviews I've read here, we decided to try the River Rock.

Built in the 1960s as a Holiday Inn, this motel has obviously been refurbished and well cared for. It is comfortable and clean, with a good restaurant, a pool in the summer, friendly staff. Local cable TV is excellent and available. A fine visit and a good value.

Ample parking and location was easy to find after a long day of flying/driving. It's in a quiet area, and the property was clean and welcoming.

Housekeeping was slacking, even though our room was cleaned up nicely (when they were by).They didn't come by every day, but...
