We enjoyed our stay at this motor lodge. Very clean, spacious room, comfortable bed. The staff was very friendly, and the rates were reasonable. Also enjoyed staying in an establishment that still has real room keys rather than the key cards that frequently don't work!

I am on a road trip with no set destination with my 15 year old and 2 grandkids ages 12 and 10. Wild rivers is a great little old school motor lodge.

Seemed to be clean enough, but pretty uncomfortable beds. At around $60 per night, Wild Rivers might seem like an okay place, but it really has no business charging $80 or $90. particularly when it provides no breakfast. But, I have to say that no lodging in Brookings appears to really provide value for the price. Sorry, folks, but that... More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you felt the bed was uncomfortable. We have recently replaced approximately 60% of the beds throughout the hotel, and the remaining 40% will be done within the next 9 months. Not knowing what room you had reserved and stayed in, we cannot verify if you had one that had been replaced... More

This hotel deserves a 3.4 but not the 4 that Tripadvisor shows. The rooms are clean, updating is somewhat obvious but could stand a bit more. No carpet which is great cuz it's easier to keep clean. Staff was nice and sleep was comfortable.

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you found our rooms “clean”.

On a 6000 mile road trip with no advance room reservations, I relied on Trip advisor reviews to select this hotel. It was exactly what I expected.
