My wife and I have been coming here for nearly ten years for ease of access to River Run. It’s an easy walk to town, yet not smack in the middle of town- away from all the road noise. The views from the pool deck and patios are fantastic.
To be fair, this is not a high concept luxury hotel, rather a supremely adequate base camp for enjoying all the valley has to offer.
End note: the manager made travel bags with juices, snacks, and coloring packs for all the kids checking out, just because they’re awesome and kind like that! less
Mary P, General Manager at Best Western Tyrolean Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you for your kind review of our property. Thank you for pointing out that we are not a high end hotel too. Many people think Sun Valley means high end, however we are a historical old ski lodge built in the 50's with added building additions over time. Though we keep the building maintained, it is not luxury, but loved by those who can appreciate its history and old world charm that we work hard to keep alive.
Our staff is possibly the best thing about this old place, as each of them go out of their way for our guests, and always try to jump one step ahead just to create a memorable guest experience. That being said, because of you and your children, we have opted to keep making the kid bags, just to help parents out when they have their hands full and to give them activities while on the road.
We do enjoy our location, and to date, it has the best views of Bald Mt. (the main ski mountain) and is a quick 2 minute drive into the center of town, or a 10 minute walk.
Across the street, lies majestic Bald Mountain, offering year round activities at River Run Lodge, and of course Wood River walking path which takes you to the old Railroad Truss above the river.
With our hard working and genuine staff, historical building, fantastic coffee machine and huge breakfast, we still beat other lodging rates.
We may not have Room Service, Valet parking or an elevator for that matter, but our staff will go beyond what one might expect at any hotel just to help our guests have the best time possible. To us, that is more important than luxury.
Thanks for taking the time to tell everybody how we did, we appreciate your loyalty to us, and look forward to seeing you and the kiddos again.
