We have stayed here several times and it has always been very pleasant other than today. Yes we booked a standard room but we did not expect a broom closet. We travel extensively and this is the smallest hotel room we have ever stayed in. We are here for 3 nights and will have to live out of the suitcase.... More

When we first came to Sun Valley Lodge we had a 3 bedroom apartment. Unfortunately, two of the three keys did not open the door, and the unit was seriously outdated. There was a circular staircase that shook greatly when walked upon, and almost felt like it was going to collapse as we went up it. Considering the cost of... More

Door men, greeters, and front desk were pleasant. Concierge was rude. When asked if there was a tour of the lodge she let me know there wasn't, but that I could walk around. Nice. We have stayed here before, and some folks seem snobby, but overall I would rate the environment acceptable. The unique ice rink and lovely grounds are... More

A wonderfully managed and classic lodge in beautiful SunValley, Idaho. But... They a closing for a huge update until September 2015. I am sure it will be lovely. So many things to do in the summer, swimming, ice skating, horseback riding, fishing, skeet shooting, hiking and just sitting and enjoying the views.

From the moment we got there and the doorman opened the door, we realized how nice the Sun Valley Lodge was! The grounds are just beautiful. The pool, tennis courts, restaurants are just great! They upgraded our room to a king bed with a great view! They also have an ice skating rink. We enjoyed drinking a glass of wine... More

The hotel is old and smells musty like a Grand Parents home. The furniture matches the age. The overall layout of the hotel: drive up, reception, room location, restaurants is awkward and not well marked. The internet reservation site is truly confusing because the hotel does not have a website. It is apparently owned by the Sun Valley Resort. The... More

This review is for Sun Valley Lodge studio condominium. We have stayed at the lodge several times in the past and given it good reviews. Having to make last minute reservations and the lodge being booked we thought we would try one of their studio condominiums. The units are intermixed with what appears to be local residents or for us... More

We took the chance to stay here even though it is currently being remodeled. I was impressed by the lodges' kind response to an angry client - they seemed sincere - so we booked 3 nights over Memorial Day. Even the old décor was classic and pleasant. The room was immaculate, the sheets and towels crisp and white, the coffee... More
