We stayed in one of the fireplace (pet friendly) rooms. We were only there one night, but enjoyed our stay. Although it is older, there have been some updates and the room and property was very clean. Everything worked well and the room was spacious. It was nice being able to exit the room from the slider and go through... More

Spent 2 nights at the Tamarack Lodge this past week, seeking fun in Sun Valley. Nice room and great location in town, with access to all in Ketchum within short walking distances. Overall, the lodge is in fair condition, with stitched-together appearances evident by a mixed collection of fixtures (brass, chrome, rubbed-oil bronze) and a barely-functioning sliding door to the...

This hotel is in central Ketchum and close to all its amenities. There are very good restaurants for lunch and dinner. There is a grocery store within two blocks. There is a Starbucks one block away; it is very amenable.

The pool and spa was closed, and that info wasn't furnished when I made the reservation. The room was fine, but it was an odd shape so that you couldn't see the tv from the bed. I asked to be moved, but they said they couldn't b/c I didn't book the room through them. The heater/A/C unit was noisy and... More

The Tamarack Lodge is located right in the heart of Ketchum. Easy walking distance to coffee, restaurants, shops, etc. Staff was very helpful and check-in / out was quick and easy. Rooms do open to the outside, motel style, but it felt safe and quiet. Bed was comfortable, and though the building is older, the furniture and fixtures had been... More

This was our first stay in Ketchum, ID and we loved our stay. The room was charming and we loved the fireplace as well we were right downtown and could walk out our door to all that the town had to offer. We will definitely be back to stay at the Tamarack.

I have stayed here twice. The rooms are spacious and clean, no views to speak of. Very convenient to restaurants and shopping. The only problem I had with my room was it had a door connected to the next guest room, and I could hear the TV very clearly, enough to keep me awake. I don't think the volume was... More

This is an older hotel. However, the new approach and remodeling brings the hotel into the current expectations needed for a very pleasant stay. I found triple sheeting on the beds, a very comfortable sleep, thick towels, ceramic coffee cups, glass drinking glasses, nice soaps, and a very roomy room. The fridge and microwave in the room was another benefit.... More

We recently returned from a ski trip to Sun Valley, and the Tamarack was exactly what we were looking for. The location of the hotel in right in town, walking distance to fantastic bars and restaurants. A quick 5 minute drive down the hill and you were right at the parking lot of the mountain. Our room was huge. We... More
