We stayed at the Inn in early July. There is much to like about the Inn/Lodge complex, but there are also signs that management is not paying attention. The signs include a consistent and annoying lack of bell and doorman staff ("oh, you called for your car 20 minutes ago?"), no dressers in the rooms = no place to unpack,... More

Wow, Jake T ( poster of an earlier review) and my party had absolutely opposite experiences at the beautiful Sun Valley Inn! We loved every minute of our too short 3 day stay. The Inn is beautiful, well attended and situated in a magical setting. The landscaping is breathtaking. The rooms in the Inn, while somewhat dated esp the bathrooms,... More

What a disappointment. The problems were poor service from the front desk to the restaurant to catering and housekeeping. It is obvious that management has no concern for the customers. Worst issue at the front desk, physical keys which then require waiting in line to check out, why no bill under the door. Housekeeping rooms, great that there were foam... More

Famous Sun Valley has faded but the Inn still has the charm and nostalgia that makes Sun Valley fantastic. We visited in Slack Season and had a great time. The front desk accommodated my request for a room with a balcony by upgrading us toe a junior suite. It was fantastic. Everyone was very nice and attentive, I was surprised... More

We stayed at the Sun Valley Inn and were lucky enough to receive an upgrade to our initial booking. We enjoyed our stay during the slack season, not as much was open in the village or in the town of Ketchum but we still found plenty to do. All the staff we encountered were lovely - especially the front desk.

Off season can be a great time to take advantage of lodging deals in resort towns, which is what my girlfriend and I recently did on a visit to Sun Valley Resort. We were hoping to ski, but the mountain closed early due to a lack of snow. We had a great time anyway, taking advantage of nearby hiking, shopping,... More

On a recent ski club trip to Sun Valley (March 7 to 14), our group of 32 stayed at the SV Inn. The room my husband and I shared was huge with an attached walk-in closet, separate sink area, and tub/toilet/sink room (Room 259). Our king bed was very comfortable and the pillows were soft and malleable - just as... More

I traveled here for work recently and have been here once before about 5 years ago. The Inn is good, central location to stay at, with a great view of Dollar Mountain. This hotel is a little dated, but serves its purpose. The staff was very responsive as, I mentioned to them that my TV was buzzing loudly when on... More

Stayed here for 5 days for a group conference. Although the Inn is getting somewhat dated, it is still a lovely and charming place to stay. The housekeeping staff is exceptional, the front desk staff is very courteous and the entire hotel has a old European vibe. Turn down service with chocolates on the pillow and twice daily towel refreshment... More
