Perfect location, very helpful and especially nice staff but facility is lacking. The rooms have some new furnishings but they really need to soundproof the rooms. I just don't like hearing men using the toilets in the adjacent rooms!

I've stayed here before and always have a pleasant experience! The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Tara at the front desk is one of my favorites and always makes sure my stay is the best it can be! Will definitely be back!!

This hotel was wonderful. The location is right in the middle of Ketchum. You can walk anywhere in the town. The bus stops are close, and free if you want to take them to ski. The staff, Sarah and Tom specifically, were extremely helpful with food recommendations and directions. The room was really spacious, with plenty of room for coats,... More

I made a last minute reservation to stay at Tamarack Lodge while on a ski trip. While the building is older, it is well maintained. The beds were very comfortable. Robes are included. Facility has an indoor pool and outdoor hot tub. Great value.

So this is an older motel right in the heart of Ketchum. It's location makes it perfect to ski at either dollar mountain or bald mountain. Although it is of quite some vintage the interior is reasonably modern. We liked: - the location; it is 3 minutes by car to each mountain and a small walk to restaurants and shops;... More

the heater in the room was not operational. The temperature in Idaho was hovering around 0 at that time. There were not enough blankets in the room. The room we got did not resemble the pictures online in any way. It was partially underground and facing the car park. It was dismal and dark.

Guinness D, My apologies for cold weather you experienced. I am sorry to hear the heater was not operational since it was 0 degrees in Sun Valley. I wish you had called the front desk as we could have provided you with an unlimited supply of blankets. If the heater was not working we could have also replaced it for... More

We were very pleased with our accommodations. Because we had taken our cat with us we did do a lot of our own housekeeping, but the staff was very helpful with our needs. We did feel the price was a little high, however considering it was over the holidays probably reasonable in comparison. The location was very quiet and relaxing.... More
