Booked on line. Hotel is right behind Main Street in Ketchum, a very short walk from restaurants, and very close to skiing and Sun Valley Lodge. Price an absolute bargain for this location, rooms large. Reception very friendly.

False advertising...they offered free breakfast, free bikes and free Wi-fi...no bikes, no breakfast and Wi-fi was impossible to connect to. All items were brought up to the staff and they were rude and did nothing to help. On top of that the room was dirty and the hot tub was filthy and in need of serious repair.

Consistently, Tamarack Lodge is the most relaxing and refreshing place to stay in Ketchum. We enjoy the quiet and clean rooms we've stayed in at various times over the years. It is centrally located near downtown Ketchum, and yet in a quiet neighborhood, so walking is enjoyable and convenient. The top floor rooms have the open beam ceiling and our... More

This hotel was in the best location. We were able to walk to everything. The rooms were clean and Tara at the front desk was able to help us out with our needs. She made the check-in quick and easy, A+ service! Will be back.

We stayed in a "king fireplace suite" during our stay at thr Tamarack Lodge. There was plenty of room for the pull out sofa and two pack and plays, along with the other furniture in its normal place and room to walk around. There were some flies & dead bugs throughout the suite, and our room & bathroom were a... More

We stayed here for three nights in October 2013 while were in Ketchum for the Trailing of the Sheep Festival. The location cannot be beat. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see in Ketchum. Yes, it is an older property and there were some things that have been updated and some things that have not. The... More

We stayed here overnight on our way to Yellowstone partly because I'd never been to Sun Valley, summer or winter and it was about what I'd expected. I've stayed in many ski town motels and this was one of the nicer ones. It was a good value compared to other lodging I saw in town, but I have no idea... More

The location of this hotel is wonderful. My husband and I stayed at the hotel for three nights last weekend. Located right downtown, it is walking distance to everything in Ketchum. The hotel itself is nothing fancy, in fact the rooms are ran down and have a strange odor, but location is really the winning factor here. I was disappointed... More
