A full week before our one-night reservation, we had a tragic death in the family. Despite my call to the property to explain the situation, they refused to refund any portion of our $140 reservation. I was shocked and disgusted. We will certainly never give them our business again. Heartless.

Clean and comfortable motel. A bit dated, but the room was large and the bed very comfy. The motel staff were friendly and helpful. The location was within walking distance for dinner and breakfast. Small balcony, large TV and sitting area.

A great little place - in the heart of downtown Ketchum! Seriously, walking distance to everything. Everything. It was quaint, clean and very comfortable. We loved our adjoining rooms that exited to the cute little courtyard. And some nice attention was recently paid to the landscaping. Overall, very pleased with this little hotel.

The property can't be beat for location and easy access to town. But, it comes with a price. Noise! Part comes from within the hotel walls, which are very thin, and a lot comes from the location. It is an old tired property, shower drain didn't work, chips in the paint, it felt like a throwback to the 70's! Pretty... More

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
