Super friendly check-in! Updated rooms and comfortable beds. Would definitely stay again!

Everything was wonderful, except for 2nd floor neighbors. Ceilings are thin so we heard every step. If you stay at this lodge ask for second floor room otherwise you will not get good rest.

Hotel is convenient to the Ketchum area. Parking is no good (almost non-existent). Rooms are good. Price is good.

Location was great and centralized to everything within walking distance.

I will say this... I am a horrible sleeper and I slept great all four nights here!! The bed is awesome! I had only one pet peeve that drove the room cleanliness score down... leftover coffee filter in coffee maker when I went to use it for the first time. Tip to cleaning staff: check the coffee maker!!

We made a reservation but were unable to stay because the beds were simply TOO SOFT. While the rooms and public spaces were clean and fairly well furnished, this is an old, cheaply constructed hotel that has seen a lot of wear and tear. The pictures don't accurately portray its poor condition.

Have stayed here several times over the years - love the overall ambiance! Park upon arriving and walk throughout Ketchum at your leisure. We travelled with a very old, very mellow dog this trip and so lovely to step out of our ground floor room and enjoy the courtyard. We walked a few blocks to dinner downtown (several patio locations from which to choose). Will definitely stay here again, hopefully this fall.

Reasonably decent facility in very convenient downtown Ketchum location. Too bad they don't provide the usual complimentary basic breakfast we business travelers are accustomed to .

Room was a little worse for wear, but clean and comfortable.

Great in-town location to everything. Big spot on old carpet and room could use a fresh coat of paint.

We picked this hotel for two reason. Proximity to town and outdoor hot tub. Arrived from Salt Lake afterskiing all day and thandrivung 5 hours and was looking forward to relaxing in Hot Tub. Treked from our room opened Hot Tub cover and Hot Tub temperature was 96. Mind you air tempature was single digit. Regardless used tub. Most knobs for jets were broken and no anti-form was available. Form expanded making Tub more like a bubble bath. Later we advised front desk. Returned to Tub again next day and found temperature was fine but same issue with soap bubbles, broken knobs and since it was light out we found mold on the head rest. Come on people either shut it down or clean it. We will Return to Ski at Sun Valley but never stay again at the Tamarack Inn.

The rooms aren't bad, some of hotel staff not friendly, outdoor hot tub really dirty, rental bikes in bad shape.

We only stayed one night, but were well-taken care of here and well-located to see take scenic walks around Ketchum (nice hills from which to marvel at the mountains as well as many fabulous street art: sculptures, "manhole coins", etc.), walk to a nice bookstore/cafe, visit Starbucks, and drive to Sun Valley lodge.

The first night I stayed was the worst experience I have ever had. I knew I would arrive late and called the hotel multiple times to make sure that I would know where I was going. I was driving in for an emergency. My phone calls with the staff were mediocre; honestly it didnt like they get paid to care. I was unimpressed but glad I at least had direction to the hotel. Once arriving, I would have been completely lost if it weren't for another hotel guest who had arrived just before me. They helped me find the lock box (the staff didnt tell me where to look and it was not at the front door), and when I couldn't open it (as it apparently jams,.) I would have been cold and unable to get in. the other hotel guest was my angel that night. I had a terrible time locating my room, which was awful. At least half the size of every other room, and was an old smoking room. there was not peace till 3 am as I heard EVERYTHING in every room and hallway around my room. then 6am and began again. the next morning, I went to "check in" as was requested since I has a late arrival. the gal at the front desk heard my story and i was able to change rooms. Clean, didnt smell bad, plenty of space, and not surrounded by hallways, doors /entrances. And thankfully the other guests around me were quiet. The walls are paper thin. i know they are planning on doing remodels; i have no opinion whether or not that would work. For over $100 a night, I wont stay there again.
