This is a lovely place to stay. I imagine it to be somewhat authentic to the original Sun Valley atmosphere. Great staff and nice breakfast. View of one of the ski areas. Lots of memorabilia of early years.

Thank you! We just completed a hotel remodel and did our best to keep the Austrian theme that was very prevalent before the remodel. Thanks again.

Good place to stay if you like a serene environment, with view of the mountains, and closer to nature than shopping boutiques. Suited our wished perfectly. The room was very comfortable. The exterior of the hotel needs some TLC, and the pool could be more clean and less heated (water). The breakfast was nice with hot and cool options.

I always stay at the hotel when I travel to Ketchum for business. I really can not say enough good thing about it! The staff is super friendly and always goes above and beyond to make travelers feel special. The breakfast is great and the internet is fast. They did a recent remodel which makes it all even nicer.

We arrived at hotel and was told we had been upgraded to a King Suite but had a dog so got a room with two queens as hadn't planned on bringing the dog. It was a nice gesture on the hotels part. The only downfall we had was that our air didn't work in room 140 & each night we...

We appreciate the comments and letting us know what is working and not working. We have since replaced the air conditioner in that room. Again my apologies and thanks for the honest assessment of our hotel.

The Tyrolean Lodge was recommended by a local resident for pet-friendly and reasonably priced accommodations. The rooms were recently remodeled. This was by far the cleanest pet room we ever experienced at a hotel -- no carpet and no lingering smells. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

While this is indeed a Best Western motel, it feels like its own unique and special place. It faces Bald Mountain and, in the building and decoration, reflects the ski slopes visible from the front porch and many of the rooms. The rooms have just been totally and tastefully renovated; the beds and atmosphere are very, very comfortable. With scrambled...

Thank you for the 5 star rating and the accompanying positive comments; I believe they sum up the essence of our property. We are a unique Austrian Style Lodge not a box styled Holiday Inn Express or Hampton Inn. Thank you for noticing.

It was obvious that the hotel is set up more for ski season than for summer visitors. This is an enormous property and is walking distance from the ski slopes. Compared to other hotels the price was very competitive. I was traveling with my older parents and we were disappointed to learn that the hotel has no elevators, so that...

The staff was really kind and helpful, which makes the stay so much more pleasurable for me. I really appreciated the personable attention. The young man who checked me in worked at least two other shifts during my stay and was great!
