    « Awesome! »

    This hotel has the friendliest front desk staff ever! They were so helpful and nice. We stayed in room 265 which was a wonderful suite with the most awesome shower for two.The hotel is quaint, clean, recently remodeled, comfortable and in a great location. We will definitely return.

    « Very nice. Great staff good hot breakfast »

    Stayed 2 nights. Reminds me of ski lodges in Vermont. Rooms redone and immaculate tile floors. Hallways narrow and a bit older like lodges in past. Only one that gives nice free breakfast in large room with fireplace and staff there very helpful. Lobby very neat old fashioned atmosphere. I felt like my past ski days Right next to new sun valley Lodge/lift Reasonably priced

    « Would stay here again »

    This is an older motel but has been well maintained and is a good affordable place to stay. The rooms are clean and the breakfast was served until 10 a.m. which is a little later than some motels. We would stay here again.

    « Great - Summer or Winter. »

    Stayed here at the Tyrolean for 3 nights during a medical conference at the Sun Valley Lodge. This is, I think, the third time we have stayed here. During the off-season, it is close to downtown (walking distance) and a little off the busy traffic pattern as well. In winter, it is great for its close ski hill access. Rooms are small, cute, clean, plenty of hot water, and the staff is great. Not sure how to improve on this place, as the price is already very good.

    « Because of breakfast »

    Pet friendly rooms, breakfast room has great options and will satisfy all tastes. The breakfast room was remodeled 2 years ago and the new features are nice. Rooms are decently sized. It is because of the breakfast room, we return each year, during the Ski and Trauma Conference.

    « Carping »

    I really don't understand why so many people carp about this Lodge. I truly believe that they're trying to gyp the owner out of comps. Great place, great price, beautiful views. It's a place to stay cheepos!

    « Flash From the Past »

    We decided on the Tyrolean since that is where my husband stayed about 18 years ago. They advertised a total redo. To our surprise, it looked the same as it did the last time. A little paint and a new vanity is not a total refurbish. I also think the mattresses were the same. It was clean, the staff friendly. Guess we got our money's worth for an off seasonal promotional.

    « Friendly Staff »

    Nice location, very helpful and friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Chocolate chip cookies upon arrival! We had a couple housekeeping issues that were quickly resolved by a caring staff. Mary and Brooke at front desk were top notch. Great breakfast as well.

    « Tyrolean Ketchum »

    Great place to stay, the best beds in town for comfort. The food for the continental breakfast is good and lots of variety for the calorie conscious. Also the location is great as it is very close to the Sun Valley Lodge if you are a skier or hiker.

    « Our "home away from home" »

    This is where we have stayed on our almost yearly visits to Ketchum for at least 20 years. This hotel is always clean and beautiful and everyone is always very nice. The breakfast is very good and the rooms have been updated just beautifully. There are plenty of outlets to charge everything you have that needs charging. The beds are very comfortable. We love it here!

    « Great location close to downtown! »

    We traveled here for the annual Trailing of the Sheep Festival. The hotel is a few blocks off Main Street so it was easy to get to the activities we wanted to take part in. It was also very close to the bike path that goes in both directions. The staff was helpful in answering questions about the festival. The breakfast was great- many choices of breakfast items.

    « All the comforts of Home »

    This Hotel is within Ketchum Idaho, a little out dated in decor but very comfortable and charming. The hotel was accommodating with a pool, workout facilities, game room, vending machines, microwave and coffee. The rooms were very nice, comfortable and quite. Within walking distance to shopping and dinning. I will note that there was no elevators in this Best Western hotel but the stairs were easy to climb. The continental breakfast was spectacular! You'll have your choice of: juices, coffee, hot chocolate for beverages. Food: muffins, toast, biscuits and gravy, waffles, eggs, bacon, cereal, milks, oatmeal, yogurt and it's all served in a nice great room with several four or two top tables and a fireplace with lots of beautiful sheer draped windows. All in all a wonderful stay at the Best Western hotel. Would recommend and stay again in the future.

    « Love this place! »

    We've stayed at this hotel every fall for the last 6 years and enjoy it. Comfortable bed, nice amenities, beautiful location, helpful staff! Highly recommend it. Lots of nice restaurants and shopping close by. Easy to walk to downtown Ketchum.

    « Great mountain views. »

    Although an older style, this is a lovely hotel off the main drag facing the ski slopes. No elevator so be prepared. Staff upgraded our room to mountain view and we also had a small sitting room. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was perfectly reasonable with quite a choice. It is a little way from the centre of Ketchum so need a couple of minutes drive to get to restaurants. The reception staff suggestion was excellent.

    « Nice location and clean room »

    This Best Western was in a good location, away from the main street and very quiet. The room was clean and the breakfast was delicious. Staff is helpful and friendly. What more could you ask for at a great price.

    « Sun Valley escape »

    The Tyrolean Lodge provides clean, well appointed rooms at a reasonable price. They are the only motel in Sun Valley that allows one to travel with pets. The location is great, across from walking trails and the ski hill. This is wonderful in the Fall as well as providing great access to the ski hill in the winter season.

    « average motel »

    This place is very average located several blocks from Ketchum. Needs remodeling. Breakfast standard cheap motel food. Would not give a late check out, very tight. Only slightly less expensive than the other nearby motels, the Kenwood Best Western is a much nicer place, closer to the shops and restaurants.

    « Worn around the Edges »

    First let me say that this is one of the only pet friendly places in this area, for which I am thankful. The location is good, especially if you are skiing across the street. However, it is old and worn. I'm guessing rooms are very cold in the winter. Just because I travel with a dog doesn't mean I don't want a nice place to stay. Best Westerns are usually good bets, but the other one in town doesn't allow pets. So, we're probably done with Sun Vally/Ketchum - just a little too snooty.

    5
    « Comfortable »

    I come every year for a weekend conference nearby but don't wish to pay resort prices. This is the 3rd year I've been and have been happy each year. Rooms very clean and comfortable, wifi works well and my husband says breakfast is good (I eat at my meeting). Will be back.

    « First class in every way »

    We stopped in on the spur of the moment while traveling through Idaho. The room was so comfortable, the mountain view was spectacular and the pool/hot tub so relaxing. It's a close walk to the village for shopping and restaurants. After a great night's sleep, we walked to the breakfast room to find a fire roaring in the fireplace and the breakfast selection was top notch. Hated to leave!

    « Friendly, clean, and comfortable »

    The hotel is older, but the rooms are nicely updated, the beds were comfortable, and the staff was super friendly. Plus, the place has lots of character! Considering how pricey Ketchum is, we were very happy with our stay and would return.

    5
    « Comfort and Convienience »

    About 7 mins walk from the town center. Comfortable, clean rooms. Nice staff. Great breakfast. Decent internet. Good for families and groups. I went with a large exhausted hiking group and Tyrolean lodge and all the amenities for this aching and hungry group.

    3
    « Small, but comfortable room »

    The hotel is near the sky lifts and within walking distance of the downtown restaurants. Our room on the first floor was comfortable, but small. Our paperwork from Expedia said, full breakfast, but the sign on the wall pointing to the breakfast area said "Continental Breakfast." It was in my opinion a full breakfast - There were scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy and you could make yourself waffles. We asked for a recommendation for dinner and were told that reservations were not necessary. That turned out to be a mistake, but the restaurant had special function, so the normal dinner menu was not available. There is no elevator, so we were glad that we did not have to take any steps to our room.

    4
    « Nice property »

    We chose this location because we had some points and got one night free and the other night was a reasonable rate. Had a NS, King room and it was very acceptable. Room had a fridge but no microwave. All the other properties in town that I tried had rates that were beyond me. In a quiet location about a 5 minute walk to all the shopping and dining in Ketchum. Older property but the room was updated nicely, clean and functional. Decent continental breakfast with a good size dining area. Outdoor pool and hot tub, looked OK but it was too cold for the pool. If it matters to you there is no elevator so you'd want a ground floor room. Narrow hallways and some funky halls that go up and down a few stairs at a time. Carpet in the halls could be redone. But as previously stated, the room we had was updated and good. I'd stay here again in Sun Valley. Sun Valley is mostly for people with a lot more money than me.

    « Clean & Comfy »

    Great location, walking distance to town. Our room had a magnificent view of the River Run ski runs on Mt Baldi there after Labor Day. The property is older but rooms are updated, small bathroom but a great shower. AC/H is noisy but ear plugs worked great. Excellent internet service.

    « Very friendly staff, clean and reasonable »

    The hotel is definitely older with a Bavavian theme throughout. We stayed in a suite on the second floor with a beautiful view of the mountains, albeit somewhat blocked by an overhang, but a lovely view none-the-less. Two separate rooms with a tv in each..very large bathroom, great hot shower, lots of towels and a refrigerator. The room was very clean and comfortable. There is no elevator so if carrying your luggage up a set of stairs is a problem, request a room on the first floor. The continental breakfast is included. It's located just a few minutes walking out of town toward the ski lift. It's very reasonable, the staff is extremely nice and helpful.

    « Perfect Gem of a Hotel »

    Beautiful setting, friendly staff, great amenities, delicious breakfast- had the perfect stay! Already booked for next year because of our fantastic experience! The bed was super comfortable, tv selections great, and we loved the coffee in the lobby and at breakfast. Warm cookies in the lobby all afternoon. The pool area was clean and I had it to myself for about 3 hours. Not one thing to complain about.

    « Tyrolean Inn - Sun Valley »

    An older motel but very clean with a Bavarian atmosphere. Great location in Sun Valley Idaho with great access to the mountain and the town area. The staff were very accommodating and the Continental breakfast was very good.The view of the mountain from the hot tub is excellent.

    « My stay »

    We had an ADA room and it had a normal tub that I had to sit down on the supplied chair to get into the tub. Another problem was that there were no bars on the walls of the shower to hang onto for stability. That was a real problem. The only other problem is that the breakfast area was up some stairs and too far away from the room to where I couldn't get to it. Other than those items, everything was fine.

    « Great hotel- GREAT customer service! »

    The staff at Tyrollean could not have been nicer. We were on a 3500 mile hot rod run with six other vintage cars and spent one night (7/28/16) there. Two of us had car troubles so we arrived five hours later than the others. Brooke checked us in after 9pm, had already typed a list for each of us of the others room numbers, told us what time they wanted us to meet in the breakfast room, gave us the name and number of an Italian restaurant that would deliver that late (we were starving)! Brooke was so helpful and made the end of a frustrating and exhausting day quite pleasant. The rooms were nice and clean and the breakfast room offered enough variety to please anyone. I wish we had been able to stay longer and enjoy Ketchum- beautiful shops within walking distance. I was emailed a review to fill out and accidentally gave a horrible review to this hotel- it was meant for a hotel in Park City, UT! When I called BW Tyrollean about my accidental horrible review, they were even nice about that! Best Western Tyrollean Is a wonderful place to stay and exceptional people work there! -T. Brown

    « Nice stay with a great location »

    We stayed here for one night while visiting Sun Valley. The location was about a 10 minute walk from downtown Ketchum. It was also close to biking/walking trails that run all over the valley. Rooms are somewhat dated, but clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast with a good variety of fresh fruit, cooked foods and drinks. We stayed on the upper floor and heard no other guests -- great nights sleep. I would recommend this for a nice value-conscious hotel stay in Ketchum.

    « Good location but worn out hotel »

    The location of this hotel is great. However, the quality of the hotel is poor. The hotel is in need of some serious updating. The air conditioner was worn, loud and ineffective. The bed was years past being comfortable. Room doors are very narrow, as are hallways. Difficult to even get by the housekeeping carts. Not worth the money.

    « Good value; near downtown and lifts »

    We were there in July, so not aware of winter activities/services. The European style lodge has been renovated/updated and served our needs well. The staff are friendly, courteous and helpful. Beds and linens are very comfortable; bathroom was small, but adequate; the room was otherwise large with a desk and sitting area. The hot breakfast buffet is good and promptly replenished. Location is excellent; we walked anywhere downtown easily; also walked to the Lodge at Sun Valley. Very short drive to ski lifts; lots of friendly and helpful info regarding hiking trails. Several nearby restaurants; we sampled the Ketchum Grille, Rickshaw and Enoteca, all excellent. The only 'cons' would be difficult to correct: thin walls and potential noise from the hallway. Overall, I would recommend to friends and would stay again.

    « Everything was great BUT.... »

    This place has a great location, staff, game room, gym, breakfast, everything....the ONE issue, if it is one for you, is that it does not have an elevator. Would I have liked one given that we had a 3rd floor room? Yes. Was it a big deal? No. Enjoy the place. Very nice staff.

    « Cozy stay. »

    We spent two nights in sun valley with our dog. The hotel has the feel of an older typical ski town hotel. However the rooms have been recently redone and are very nice. I really liked the hardwood floors. So much cleaner then carpet! Breakfast was nice. The front seat staff was very helpful. They offered suggestions regarding activities and restaurants. They kept offering assistance if any was needed. It really made them seem like they wanted to help! Nice touch! There are nice fields to walk the dog around right outside if you are traveling with a pet and you are very close the to walking path and even a creek for the dog to swim in.

    4
    « Quiet location »

    Hotel was a little hard to find but the plus is that it is in a quiet area. Very nice people at check in. The pool and spa area was very nice and had a great view of the ski mountain. Hotel is located a short walk from the heart of downtown Ketchum so you get to see more of the area. I would like to go back in winter and ski that mountain!

    « BW Tyrolean Lodge »

    « A trip back in time w/ modern conveniences »

    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.

    4
    « Serene settings with a view »

    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.

    « Best Stay In Ketchum! »

    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.

    2
    « Weekend visit »

    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 forgot until we got ready to go the bed, only the fan ran; it was really hot & stuffy. I also forgot to let them know on the way out. Breakfast was wonderful with a lot of selections to choose from and really good oatmeal. We would stay again, the location is ideal for walking into town and home. My husband would've liked access to the hot tub earlier than 10am.

    5
    « Best pet friendly hotel experience ever. »

    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.

    « Much Better than a Chain Motel »

    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 eggs, bacon or sausage, and fresh hot oatmeal, the free full breakfast is several notches better than standard motel continental breakfasts, and it has all those breakfasts' usual items. We appreciated the real ceramic dishes and mugs and also the presence of staff to resupply the serving area and keep it clean. What a bike-friendly motel! The River Run access point to the excellent, paved Wood River Trail is nearby, and the staff invited us to keep our bikes either in their first-floor storage room or in our room. The very best part of this place is the staff. Every person who helped us during our stay, including housekeepers, front desk staff, gardener, and manager, interacted in a personal, friendly way.

    4
    « Off Season Visit »

    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 made getting around a little difficult. The property has been around awhile, but it is in pretty good condition and our room was very clean.

    « AMAZING location and friendly staff »

    Had the pleasure of spending time at the Best Western in Ketchum. Lynn checked us in and was incredibly friendly and helpful. She not only made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in but pointed out some amazing places locally to eat. The location of the hotel is perfect for walking, biking, or driving to shops and dining. The rooms are very nice and clean giving you a refreshing feel while staying.

    « Good Option for Sun Valley »

    The Tyrolean Lodge is a good option for very pricey Sun Valley area. Great view of Bald Mountain, and easy to hike on the mountain or walk into town. Hot tub and heated swimming pool which the kids all enjoyed. Extensive, yet typical, continental breakfast with hot entrée, waffle machine, and other choices.

    « Unique place to stay »

    We visit there often. Always enjoy accommodations there. Location is ideal with in walking distance to village and Mt. Staff friendly and accommodating. Repeat visits planned soon. Breakfast is always delightful and nice that it is included. View of Mt. Baldy from our deck was frosting on the cake for us. Parasailers off the top of the Mt. was a delight in the morning. Underground parking was also appreciated. Looking forward to our next visit soon.

    « Beautiful location, but hotel was disappointing. »

    Although we loved the location near the trail, away from the noise, beautiful mtn views, the hotel leaves much to be desired. They were doing some remodeling and some of the crew were staying in the hotel, hanging out their windows smoking, and being loud. The employees were nice, we were glad there was a W/D, and the pool area was nice. The continental brunch was disappointing.

    4
    « Great Breakfast and very quiet! »

    Not one time did we ever hear any of our neighbors. There's great soundproofing in this hotel. It's a little bit older but everything is kept up nicely and is very clean. The beds were just fine as were the pillows. Gorgeous Mountain View's through your windows and on your deck. The mountains are right across the street with nothing in the way or obstructing the views. The price is decent and the breakfast is better than most places.

    « Tyrolean was wonderful! »

    Our stay at the Tyrolean was wonderful. First off, the front desk staff was amazing. They couldn't have been more friendly and professional, but more than that, they knew and called us by name. They even provided us with a small desk fan to use in our room to provide some white noise so that we could sleep better (the fan, incidentally, was one that was used in the office space near the front desk so they essentially gave up their own comfort for ours). The pool and hot tub were pleasant and relaxing and the breakfast was fabulous, including a variety of breads, yogurt fresh fruit, and cereals, bacon, eggs, biscuits & gravy, and the standard options of juices. The room itself was quiet & comfortable and aside from the bathroom not having a fan (showers got pretty steamed up), it was exactly what we needed and we slept very well.

    « Good place to stay in Ketchum »

    We have stayed here several times, and each time has been very good. The hotel is older, but has a lot of charm. The stairs can be frustrating if you have a lot of bags to carry, so be sure to consider that when choosing. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are clean with comfortable beds, the free breakfast is good, and the hotel is within walking distance to town. They also have family suites, which is nice for larger groups. The rates here are very reasonable for the Ketchum area. This is always our first choice when traveling to Ketchum.

    « Just like our winter vacation home... »

    ... if we had one! The mountain view rooms face the ski slope, and even in summer they're lovely to see first thing in the morning! The staff was so sweet when we booked last-minute, even upgrading us to a family suite when we showed up at 8pm. Breakfast was delicious (and free) in the cutest little winter lodge room, and the whole place felt like fireplace-warmed Christmas. I cannot wait to return!

    « Clean comfortable and good value »

    Our room was clean, the bed comfortable, we had a beautiful view of the mountains, an extreme continental breakfast fully-stocked with most anything one could want (eggs were real, oatmeal was good and they offered raisins, almonds, and brown sugar as toppings, danish, yogurt, fruit, waffles...no need to dine out), and within walking distance of Main Street.

    « Heard *every* noise the neighbors made »

    No elevator, walls very thin, you can hear everything next door. But, it's clean and nice looking. Obviously an old hotel with a lot of remodeling. Breakfast was average, could use some fresh fruit. Watch out for high taxes and fees on the room rate!

    « Perfectly Acceptable »

    Although it is undergoing renovations, there was no loud noise during our time at the hotel. Our room, having been recently renovated, was done very nicely. The breakfast selections had something for everyone.

    « Potential After Remodel »

    I made reservations several months ahead. We were planning to bring our crate trained Corgi who travels with us a lot. When making the reservations the site quotes the additional fee to have a dog in your room. There is a remarks area that I shared we were bringing our dog. No place else when making reservations does it tell you how else to reserve a room when you plan to bring a dog. A couple weeks before I called to confirm our reservations, I was told they had no rooms available for dogs, that I should have called immediately after making my reservation and that they don't read remarks, besides only rooms with a King beds take dogs and all six rooms were booked and taken. So we had to quickly find somewhere to board our dog. When we arrived I saw that the whole bottom floor and most of the second floor were being remodeled. A friend that made reservations way after us was given a room with a view of the mountain we were given one in the corner facing the back. The only positive is this place has a stop right on the bus service. The Internet is slow and they had to reboot once. The walls are thin, we could hear the next door TV. The breakfast was fine, the scrambled eggs were sort of bland. After our stay we received a survey and I shared all this information. I suggested they have grated cheese or salsa for the eggs and they said that was a good idea. Then they shared that all the bottom floor which included all Six dog units was being remodeled. So this tells me that I was lied to!

    « Excellent, would recommend »

    Stayed here one night for work. Hotel is being renovated, but I was not inconvenienced. Room was clean and well appointed with a coffeemaker, mini fridge, comfortable bed, workstation, and free wifi. It is an easy walk to bars and restaurants downtown. The staff was courteous and helpful. The breakfast was good - bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy, assorted fruit, cereal, pastry, juice and coffee. Overall I thought it was great and I would stay here again.

    « Good trip »

    « Not worth staying here »

    I travel a significant amount of time in my profession. This will be my first and last time at this property. The room was extremely cramped. There were stairs everywhere. The halls are VERY narrow. One of the maids left their cleaning cart next to my room in the morning, and it was all I could do to get past it to take my belongings to my car. At night in hotels, I usually do a significant amount of work, that involves bringing in a bunch of stuff from my car. There are no luggage carts here. Even if there were, there are too many stairs. If you need an "accessible" place to stay, this is not it. The desk attendant said they had two accessible rooms, but I didn't see any "non-stair" ways to get into the hotel.

    « Great Value and Location »

    My bother and I spent our annual ski vacation in Sun Valley and stayed at the Best Western Tyrolean Village. Hotel is a 2 and 3 Story alpine lodge design and is reminiscent of a european alpine lodge. The location puts you close to the slopes and an easy five to ten minute walk to the downtown. The mountain view rooms appear to be a little larger that the standard view and for what little cost difference, they are the better buy. Rooms are clean with adequate space for luggage and people. Bathroom is typical of a moderate hotel. Very clean and the amenities are of good quality. Staff is friendly and more than happy to assist you. Overall this is a spectacular value in Sun Valley. If you're after value and location, this is hard to beat. If you're in to luxury and opulence this is not the place When we go back, we'll stay here again.

    « Great customer service from front desk staff »

    A friend and I stayed here 1 night while we were in Sun Valley to XC ski. First the positives about this motel: the room rate was affordable for our budget, the women at the front desk had top notch customer service skills, the beds in our room were very comfortable, and the breakfast room had a nice fireplace plus the food was good. The negatives were: outdoor pool and hot tub were quite small, the overall appearance of the motel's interior had a run down and well worn look, no real view and it was a several blocks walk to get to the heart of downtown. We had originally planned to stay 2-3 nights, but checked out after the 1st night and found another place to stay for a little more money but a nicer overall atmosphere. If you are on a budget, aren't particular about being in an older facility, this would be a great place to stay for you.

    Had a great two weeks at this hotel. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Located at the foot of Baldy Mtn. just a few blocks from downtown Ketchum. Behold, a breakfast room that not only offers good food but serves it on porcelain to be eaten using flatware and not that awful plastic.

    Was unhappy with the room for the price. The hotel was out dated and didn't meet what i expected and saw on the internet. Would not stay there again. Will pay extra to stay somewhere nicer. Breakfast was ok but probably best part of stay. Queen size bed would've been better as a dbl queen. Overall my stay was a dissatisfaction.

    « Epic Fail »

    We had been looking forward to a weekend get-a-way in Ketchum for months. Our room was a huge disappointment. Tiny bathroom, strange odor in the bedroom area, out dated furnishings, tilting toilet, I could go on but you get the point. Should've stayed at the other Best Western in Ketchum, it's a lovely hotel. This one needs razed and rebuilt.

    « Super pet-friendly, centrally located, helpful staff »

    I enjoyed my stay here. The front desk staff was very helpful and accommodating, and gave me some great tips on local hiking options. The breakfast was pretty good, but the room was a little cramped. Unfortunately they were in the middle of renovating the breakfast area, so the hotel was a bit noisy and upheaved with workers, dust, etc. That's why I am giving them for stars. I'm sure it will be perfect when the breakfast area is back in service. if you're traveling with a pet, this is the best place to stay in Sun Valley.

    Overall a great hotel. The rooms were nice, great seating in the lobby with a nice fireplace, a very adequate breakfast and clean well maintained hotel. This hotel is also walking distance to the Sun Valley ski resort and restaurants in town. Staff was friendly and helpful. I often don't write reviews, but thought this hotel deserved some praise. Keep up the great work!

    « Great Skiing Location in Ketchum/Sun Valley Idaho »

    We booked in as a couple into the Tyrolean Lodge in Ketchum, Sun Valley Idaho. Reception was very friendly and helpful. There is a coffee machine in the foyer, with alternate hot chocolate or tea options. Breakfast was free and was a buffet between 7am and 10am. Simple fare, being scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, waffles, toast, cereal and similar. Coffee/tea/chocolate was also available, with machine juice. Room (241) was on the second floor and had a balcony running along all the rooms. Unfortunately there was no elevator so luggage was hand carried to the room. Help was available with the luggage and offered (but declined on arrival). Friendly staff. The bed was huge and comfortable (King) with nice pillows. Unfortunately there was no microwave or fridge in the room. We kept our drinks cold using the ice machine a couple of metres from our room. The room was a little dated but nice. The hotel is part way through a renovation and this is expected to be done by April 2016. We had some issues with the TV reception but the maintenance man was very much on top of this and swapped out the unit. The ski lifts were a 400m walk away across the carpark. A shuttle was available if you didn't want to walk it.

    Best Western quality at extremely reasonable prices in a town that offers no reasonable prices; it was a pleasant surprise to find such affordable rates at Sun Valley! Also the staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Will plan on staying here on my next trip to Ketchum.

    « Best Value for River Run Access »

    One shuttle stop from River Run base lodge for Sun Valley - you cannot beat the value anywhere in Ketchum. This is an older property but it is warm and comfortable and very conveniently located. This is not a "trophy" property, but rather a great place to stay.

    The bed are comfortable. The hotel is located very close to River Run lodge and downtown Ketchum. We were not fans of the breakfast but we maybe picky eaters. This is a great value for this resort town. If you want the high end spa like experience, the SV lodge is your ticket, if you want a comfortable bed close to the ski hill, this a good option.

    « Great Staff »

    A very good value hotel. Very close to the Mount Baldy. Staff was excellent. Hotel was great. Is a little on the older side, but we did not mind that at all. Very good breakfast, good wifi, clean, spacious room. On the con side (and not a big deal) was no fridge or microwave in the room.

    My happy German Shepherd and I stayed at Tyrolean over Christmas, while visiting family. Our room was perfect and being we both have fabulous noses for pet smells, it was so nice that we couldn't even tell there had been pets in the room prior to our stay. Everything was clean and nicely laid out. The staff was very friendly and loving towards my Shepherd! I would definitely recommend this hotel to people and dog lovers alike!

    « Original Tyrolian Lodge - Historic »

    The room we stayed in was nicely renovated but the beds have not been updated, the beds were sloping in toward the middle and I felt like I was being pulled toward the center all night. You can not beat the location if you are skiing at Baldy and the selection of restaurants nearby is staggering, (Make Reservations !!!). This is original post and beam construction so expect noise from sides and above - some improvements could be made to adjoining room doors to make them more sound resistant. Cookies at 4:00pm is a nice touch, the breakfast is great if you like fresh waffles.

    « Very Nice Hotel! Great for Families! »

    We stayed for 2 nights over Thanksgiving Weekend. We used Best Western Points and felt that we were treated so well. We were upgraded to a suite which was very nice. The room had recently been remodeled and was very beautiful. Lots of room. The Breakfast in the morning has a lot of options and overall we felt we were treated very well by the front desk, service, etc... Thank you very much. We recommend this hotel very much. I have stayed at the other BW property in Ketchum and found this one much more welcoming. Thank you so much.

    « Good Location and Good Value »

    We normally don't stay in a hotel in this area as it is close enough to just come for the day, but we wanted to do something a little different for a Thanksgiving holiday. The price we paid was great for the area and also because it was a holiday. This is a nice average hotel with a decent continental breakfast. This place does not have a elevator, so if you don't want to carry your luggage up the stairs, make sure you ask for a ground floor. If you want a view of the mountains and/or ski area, make sure you ask for that as the back rooms overlook a few buildings and an empty lot which didn't look too bad with a few inches of snow on it. The only detraction for me was that we didn't have a microwave which would have been nice to heat up some leftovers we had from a previous dinner. The other item was the bed was a bit hard so my hubby and I had a few kinks to work out after a night in bed. But that may not be an issue for some But over all the hotel is in a good location for walking into town or close to some of the ski runs. The hotel does offer a shuttle to the lifts.

    « The staff provided excellent service »

    I was unable to keep my reservation due to unforeseen circumstances and uncontrollable events which which was stressful for me. Mason and Yadira were so kind and helpful. They were able to sell my room and relieve me of my financial obligation. This kind gesture allowed me to more completely enjoy my time at the Sun Valley Jazz Festival. I appreciate their kindness and responsiveness. I hope to enjoy the environs of the Inn my next visit.

    Great breakfast, comfortable bed, in a beautiful town for a really good price. That sums it up, but I apparently need to lengthen my review. So I would say that everything in Ketchum is expensive, but this hotel was very affordable.

    « Nice lodging during Trailing of the Sheep »

    Very pleasant stay. The room looked recently updated. The beds were very comfortable. Nice view from our balcony over a grassy field to a hill with ski runs. The neighborhood had a residential feel and convenient access to downtown. Breakfast room was nice and large. Many food choices, including scrambled eggs every day and alternating choice of bacon or sausage. Carpeting on stairs and in hallways is well worn. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Provided area map and good restaurant recommendation. Glad we stayed here.

    We have stayed here several times over the last few years. Staff are very friendly and helpful. This time we got the hot tub suite. The room was super but the hot tub was a little disappointing. A few of the jets had very low pressure. The breakfast was good, lots of choices.

    We had an enjoyable hotel experience. The balcony off of our room was a nice place to enjoy the scenery. The room was clean and comfortable. Only things missing were a fridge and microwave. As a bonus, we saw a wolf walking across the road just off the parking lot from our room! THAT WAS COOL!!

    We make two trips to Ketchum each year, one in the one in the spring and one in the fall. This is the only hotel in Ketchum that is pet friendly. This is a nice place, with a great hot tub and view of the mountains. The only thing I was disappointed with is that they now offer a buffet breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy and waffles. They no longer offer the really good breakfast sandwiches. Their coffee is awful!

    « Welcoming choice »

    We stay here frequently when in Ketchum. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. The lobby is a cozy, warm place where one can sit by the fire to drink coffee and read in early mornings and where families can come to play some of the offered games at the game tables. This motel has all the needed amenities, separate floor for those traveling with pets, is within walking distance to downtown shops and eateries. It is also within walking distance to ski areas. Always clean and has been updated. Great mattresses and showers. Breakfast area is clean and inviting.

    The exterior is old and tired, but the rooms are very nice, and the staff were all very friendly. Rooms were quiet. The breakfast was also quite good. Biggest downside is that the floors are hardwood rather than carpet.

    « Wonderful mountain lodge feel »

    We loved this older BW property in Ketchum. It indeed has a decor that makes one think he might be in the Tyrol and the staff was pleasant and efficient. Our QQ room was on the small side, but worked great for us. The bathroom has a spacious counter at the basin and had good water pressure. Rarely does one get two suitcase stands in a room, but this room had two plus other good accroutements. The flat-screen TV is huge with an extensive choice of channels. The breakfast was just fine, and BW does a good job of always offering hot egg dishes and often a breakfast meat. The only demerit for this property is the lack of an elevator. We failed to have requested first floor accommodations, and those stairways were steep! For the area, this motel has favorable rates and it is certainly a comfortable place to stay.
