This “Lodge” was a strange combination of old and new. Our room was on the 3rd floor and we were there for 3 nights.The room had been updated and was comfortable, but it was old in ways as well. The bed was comfortable and the room (non-smoking) was quiet. It had a nice balcony. Only problem with the balcony was...

Dated hotel, but all we need for a comfortable visit. First night was great! Second night, while we heard no voices, we thought room 202 above us had children jumping off the bed and on to the floor and running around. After listening to this for more than an hour without pause, and around 10:15 PM we called the manager....

My husband and I and several other good friends of ours recently stayed here due to a sudden change in our reservations at another hotel . The Website looks fine noting the lodge was newly renovated and the reviews all seemed promising so we did not get to bothered by the change in accommodations . Big mistake !! Our room...

This was a great hotel in terms of location--close to downtown restaurants, a terrific bookstore (Iconoclast), and the walking/biking path to Sun Valley Lodge. The building is showing some wear; we were on second level, and it sounded like Bigfoot was on floor above. Lovely veranda on our room (Western exposure for our room, which is a bit much in...

DoctorCompRhet offers another reader-oriented review: The Tamarack Lodge has a venerable history and offers a good in-town experience (if you don't want to stay outside of Ketchum), with a location in the center of town and walkable to most of the restaurants, a good supermarket one block away, and other attractions. Don't expect anything super modern here; but do expect...

There were three couples in three rooms. All rooms were OK, but nothing special. Front desk folks were very nice. Rooms weren't ready until official check in time; statement is not a complaint. Just setting expectations. Lots of restaurants and stores in walking distance.

We have stayed in Ketchum, Sun Valley, Hailey are for 25 years. This place is the WORST. Stay at its sister hotel in Hailey. We arrived and have but a few shopping channels on the TV. I complained to the lady at the desk and all she could tell me is to unplug it. We that's the first thing I...

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.

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...
