Really comfortable beds. New flat screen televisions. Nice large, comfortable rooms. Views of Baldy. Close to everything. You can even walk or bike to Sun Valley on paved paths. Tara was great! Very friendly.

Excellent service! Tamarack Lodge is our favorite place to stay in Ketchum. Within walking distance of shops, stores, eating, and entertainment. Very quiet, very clean, very comfortable. We won't stay anywhere else. Would like to thank both Robbie and Tom on our recent stay!

Room Tip: We have stayed in the suites and also the Queen rooms. Both are excellent, very roomy, clean and qu...

Apart from a good location, my husband and I thought this hotel was very average. In fact, from the outside, the hotel looks like a barn. I can't understand why when a hotel is nearly empty, management want to put you in a room that is pretty ordinary. Why not put your guests in an upgraded room - just for the experience? From the moment we walked it, the room smelled and even though it was meant to be a refurbished room, it looked old and tired.

There was a cute little balcony, but it abutted the roof which was pretty strange as it felt like we were sitting on the roof.

I loved the town of Ketchum, and I'm sure there are other hotels that are better than this one. Wouldn't stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Check out the room before you pay for it.

This is older property but my room was updated with new paint, fixtures, and a new TV. I think that most of the other stuff in the room (like the bed and pillows, etc) were also new. The room felt fresh.
The cleanliness was very good, especially for a hotel that is pet friendly in a town with very few pet-friendly hotels.

The location is in central Ketchum - it is very affordable considering the location.

The staff was friendly and helpful - I was having trouble with my TV and the staff came to my room promptly and fixed the problem.

Thanks Tara.

Room Tip: The bottom floor rooms are great if you have a dog - there is a very nice courtyard that you can use...

Thank you for making us feel welcome. Tom, was very polite, and helpful. The room smelled a little of smoke, but was clean. The bed was comfortable, and was impressed with the white linen.. The balcony was a perk!

Had a great and comfortable stay here. Hotel is located right in the center of town, great location and walking distance from a lot of restaraunt and activities. Rooms were very spacious and clean. Staff was very helpful and nice, especially Tom at the front desk. Would stay here again!

Right in town. Low key vibe. Super friendly service. Thanks Tom! Rooms are decently updated. Can't say enough how great the location is!!! Pool and hot tub were clean and ready to use. Parking could be a little better. Other than that, no complaints!

Dsgbiker,
Thank you for your review of the Tamarack Lodge. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Next time please let us know about the parking situation and we will recommend additional spots that you can conveniently part at. We have a large lot in the back of the property that sometimes gets over looked. Thanks again for staying with us.
