This place is more magical in the winter... but it's fun in the summer as well. The pool... I will never forget it... You just have to try it out... The rooms are great... service is ok... Like most places in this area, the staff tends to be rather snooty and so you have to be very persistent with what... More

We are never disappointed when we stay at the lodge or the inn. The customer service is always on, the rooms are clean (although getting a little dated...so it will be interesting to see the lodge renovation and we are crossing our fingers that the rates don't increase). We love the pool year round. It is a little bit of... More

We were disappointed to learn that the Sun Valley Lodge (not the Inn) is closed for renovations this 2015 ski season. We just love the "old" ambiance of the Lodge so The Inn or other accommodations in the area just won't do. Unfortunately, there is no mention of the closure on their web site, so I spent a few frustrating... More

The staff here is amazing!! The rooms are large and well equipped with everything one would need. From a refrigerator, coffee maker with Starbucks coffee, to bathrobes. There are double sinks in the room one in the bathroom and one outside. That was super convenient for getting ready when someone was in the bathroom. There was turn down service at... More

Tried SV for the first time in March. They are very cryptic in their promotional materials regarding their location relative to the to ski hills. Once you arrive you will see why. Although the resort itself is comfy, you have to wait for a bus, take a lengthy ride through town past other more convenient and updated accommodations, to get... More

Dear Gypsygirl831, We value and appreciate all comments whether complimentary or critical. Sun Valley Resort is committed to 100% guest satisfaction in everything we do. Upon reading your other TripAdvisor reviews, it appears that you have very high standards while reviewing your travels. Your comment about the resort not being located next to the ski mountains was disconcerting. The local... More

We have stayed at the Sun Valley Lodge on several occasions over the past few years. The staff is warm and friendly...never snobby or ostentatious. We stayed over the Fourth of July weekend this year, and the weekend was truly magical. Between the amazing fireworks show, the impeccable grounds, and fashionable people roaming around, (including a sighting of a former... More

Enjoyed the nostalgia that the Sun Valley Lodge offers. The Inn is the better of the two choices, but I know that the Lodge is being remodeled and will be so much nicer once it is complete. The Inn had nice rooms, comfortable beds and the resort is easy access to town. There is a driver available to take you... More

We have made Sun Valley our families get away for over 20 years and they have grown to feel like locals whenever we visit now. The area around the resort, Ketchum, is growing and expanding but they still maintain the resort/getaway country escape feeling. We can walk or bicycle just about anywhere we want to get to in the spring/summer/fall... More

I have stayed at the SV Lodge on different occasions for decades. While the location is wonderful offering proximity to the ice-shows, fireworks, pools, tennis and ease in reaching the ski chairlifts (via plentiful shuttles) - the resort truly needs to improve the quality of its food. Also the SV Lodge beauty salon was woefully out of date. However, a... More

The rooms were beautifully appointed, the luxury and charm of this hotel make it the place to stay in Sun Valley. The staff is helpful and very friendly, going out of their way to make your stay special. The ice rink was lovely as well as the shopping immediately surrounding the hotel.
