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

There is something for everybody if you are looking for entertainment. The Spa this trip was being remodeled. Can't wait until we return for another... 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

My husband and I always stay here when we travel to Sun Valley for ski/snowboarding holidays. The rooms are lovely, but our favorite part is swimming in the huge round pools (heated more like a hot tub), apres ski. We also love the lounge with the nightly bands (sometimes of the swining variety, suitable for dancing). There are roaring fires... More

This classic Idaho Lodge is undergoing updating but the rooms available are still precious with wonderful furniture, heavy drapes and coordinated decor. We just about fell over when the clerks at check-in told us the Lodge would close Sept 1 for 9 months! They assured us the Sun Valley Inn (on same grounds) would be open for fall visitors and...

We went to Sun Valley for business and stayed longer for pleasure....and we would have stayed even longer if we could have. We went during the summer and we were concerned our teenagers would be bored.....we were pleasantly surprised at how much we did. From ski lifts to eat lunch, paddle boarding, fishing, ice skating, white water rafting, bike riding.... More
