For being in a rich white downtown area, it’s nice and affordable without being too pretentious.

We loved our stay here - the lodge was cozy and within short walking distance of everything in Ketchum. The staff was very friendly and check in was easy. It was also dog friendly. We switched rooms because we decided to stay longer and got a room with a fireplace. The location was better but we liked the layout of the regular room better.

We enjoyed being so close to everything Ketchum has to offer... Thank you!

Clean, well taken care of hotel, and excellent communication with staff through text messages

The property was uniquely placed in the middle of town right around most of the shops so staying there was pretty convenient. The downside was the heating and cooling unit. The heating and cooling unit was the type that is mounted in the wall but it was so close to the bed so when the AC came on you were a chilly and unit was a little noisy.

I loved the location and the room was neat and clean. I did not like that the blinds did not work. One did and the other one was broken. The drapes on the slider was coming off and looked beat up. The bedding was clean and beds and pillows were very comfortable.

The property was older but clean and comfortable. Great location in the heart of Ketchum.

The property is in a great location for walking around and it is next to the bus stop. It is an older property, what we would normally call a motel, not a hotel. Do not show up before your check in time, you will not be granted early access to your room. Parking is limited.

The room was very large and spacious. The big screen television was very nice. I enjoyed the quietness of this lodge. The Tamarack WiFi did not work properly. I could only access a few websites using the Tamarack WiFi. The rest of the websites were blocked, which was not good. I was surprised one morning when I did not have much hot water. Also, one of the blinds had a broken turning handle that needed replacing or repairing.

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.
