The Tamarack was in a good location near everything but the room was looking old and worn and the noise of the fan for the A.C. as well as the bathroom was very loud and irritating. The room was not all that quiet and we could hear other people coming and going late at night. It's very hard to find...

This place can't be beat for the money. The rooms and facility are clean and comfortable, the staff is helpful and efficient. The best part is the location, you can walk anywhere in town, very centrally located. We will stay here again.

Stayed in the King Suite, which was delightful. Had a beautiful view of Baldy Mountain through a large set of windows. The room was very spacious and the staff was very nice. Great location for day trips into the Sawtooth Mountains.

Excellent and friendly service. With this being our first trip to Ketchum/Sun Valley area Tara at the front desk was most helpful to point out interesting things to do in the area. Check in and check out was easy. Within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. A real value.
