If your not going to spend time in your room... or at the hotel bar... or sitting by the pool... or going to the Sun Valley Lodge restaurants.... Tamarack is a great buy. Tamarack is on the main drag into Sun Valley and close to all the night life and recreation rentals in Ketchum. Most of shopping is a easy...

Nice place to stay right in the centre of town and close to everything that you need. The rooms are very large and well-equipped with huge incredibly comfortable bed, good bathroom, toiletries etc. It has a small but very nice pool.

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.

The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Nice to have a fridge and a microwave. My advice DO NOT stay on the first floor. You can hear everything from above; walking, shower, using the sink and toilet. It was very loud and pronounced, which isn't always fun when you don't want to wake up at 0600. I must say...

Tamarack Lodge is right downtown, within walking distance of all the great restaurants and shops. You have to drive or ride to the ski slopes, however. This lodge is older (1960's) but has been well maintained, clean, and quiet. And reasonably priced!

Perfect location, very helpful and especially nice staff but facility is lacking. The rooms have some new furnishings but they really need to soundproof the rooms. I just don't like hearing men using the toilets in the adjacent rooms!
