Last minute stay over slack and I found the room clean, towels and linens good with decent space. Room was quite basic with newer tile in the nice shower. Be wary of the rooms facing out to the highway as the noise will be with you all day and all night.

Lift Tower Lodge's rooms are well appointed with updated interiors. The rooms are small and would be very cramped for a couple on a ski holiday. Our room was neat and the bed was quite comfortable. The motel is right on the highway and we did worry about traffic noise, but that was never a problem. The wifi was not... More

Cute little motel close to downtown area. Reasonable rates, very clean, comfy bed. Had a room in the back which was very quiet and had a nice view. No air conditioner but room was comfortable when we were there (September) Very helpful in offering suggestions of places to eat. Close to town and walking trails.

We rolled in as part of our 3200 mile road trip on the Harley, spotless room, great shower and comfy bed. We had a room in the back and was very quiet and great view. Only stayed for 1 nite but enjoyed Ketchum very much! Left my flip-flops and called from the road. Just got them in the mail..thanks! Would... More

We have stayed at this cute little motel during the fall season and it was great. It is clean and everything works, if it is a bit dated. The owners are very cordial and helpful, and it is very reasonably-priced motel for the Sun Valley area. However, when we visited during the summer, we found out that the rooms do... More

Close to town, this place is super clean, great little rooms, and fully renovated with high end bathroom finishings. Mini fridge, and live in managers, amazing view right out the front door -- this place is at the base of a ski lift.

Very nice. Small but up to date and clean. Looks can be deceiving from the outside, as it doesn't look like much from the outside. But we were very pleased with the clean and comfortable room. Betty the manager is very nice and helpful. And being at a reasonable price compared to all the other hotels in the area we... More

The LiftTower lodge is cute and reasonable. The owner will help you find the perfect place to eat or the best bar for a drink. The rooms are small, but very clean. The price is very reasonable! We will stay here again.

Not quite sure why this rates so high. Who has a 20 inch standard def TV in any motel in the US. Small room, very small bathroom, what NO hair dryer for $89 a night. Clean and warm with small window in the shower (no bathtub) that looks up toward River Run in the distance until the steam fogs it... More
