We stayed a couple nights at the Tamarack Lodge recently and enjoyed it's central location to all of downtown Ketchum. Having lived in the Sun Valley (Warm Springs) area 40 years ago, it was fun to see all the changes around the town and explore all within walking distance. The Tamarack is an older accommodation and yet was clean and... More

The fantastic location is the best part of the Tamarack Lodge, although the touted view of Mt. Baldy was largely blocked by the unappealing roof of the lodge itself. The service was just ok; when we checked in our room was not ready (which was not mentioned when we checked in), and the door to our room was wide open,... More

We went to Ketchum/Sun Valley as a trip down memory lane for my wife and a first time for me. After many miles and some heavy emotions, it was very pleasant to sit down, order a pizza and sit on the patio together. The room seemed to be updated and was very comfortable. We certainly enjoyed our stay.

Stayed 2 nights. Pipe broken under sink. We moved to another room next day. They reluctantly offered 10 dollars off. The front desk staff was not accommodating at all. Rooms are dated but beds are comfortable and linens are nice. Good location. Customer service lacking.

My family and I met some close friends and their kids over Mother's Day at the Tamarack Lodge. We had a wonderful time in the pool and hot tub with our kiddos! We brought our dogs which was a treat. The location of this hotel really can't be beat... a short walk to downtown and just on the road to... More

This is a great place to stay right in the heart of Sun Valley within walking distance to coffee shops, art galleries, shopping and many many many restaurants - casual and fine dining. The rooms were comfortable, exceptionally clean, with mini fridge and microwave. I would definitely recommend the lodge and would stay there again.

Stayed here one night and wished it could have been more. Beautiful room, comfortable bed, all the comforts of home plus a better TV. I probably can't add anything that hasn't already been said. Just go there.

We have stayed here many times and we are always pleased with the very clean rooms and friendly staff! We were on the third floor and they do not have an elevator but Tom at the desk helped us with all our luggage. This is a lovely place, they couldn't have a better location.
