Tamarack Lodge is on the older side and showing its age despite a few updates. It's centrally located to shops and restaurants and is one of the few hotels I've found in Ketchum that allows pets, which is the main reason I stay at the property.

For skiing this lodge is perfectly acceptable ... but a bit dated. We had a one bedroom suite for one night on September 3, 2014. The suite was very spacious with lots of closets and room for skis, boots, heavy clothes, etc. And when you've been out skiing all day, which we were not, luxury is not as important as... More

Went to see my daughter who recently moved to Sun Valley. Stayed at Tamarack and had a wonderful time. Great location right in the middle of Ketchum, you can walk to restaurants and shops - fantastic location. The staff was friendly, room was very clean. Started every morning at the coffee shop across the street. Hiked every day and came... More

The property is aged but in a great location so if your looking for a room at a decent value (we paid $100 a night) to crash in, adventure all day and cruise town at night, this is a fair option. If you're looking for a romantic weekend with your honey, stay elsewhere. The 5 star first time reviewers are... More

Really nothing to rave about. I spent one night here and then went to The AmericInn in Hailey the next night. Cleaner, updated and less expensive. Tamarack has been updated a little bit but overall beat up and over priced. If you are a frequent traveler you will be Disappointed!!

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

Jenny E, Unfortunately it seems that you were checked into a room where our cleaning staff was in the middle of the cleaning process from the previous guest. We apologize for this experience. Sincerely, Ryan 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.
