This Hot Water Inn is a boutique hotel and hostel that sits near the base of the Warm Springs Village at Sun Valley Ski Resort. It's a fun place for travelers to enjoy a great time in Sun Valley without breaking the bank. Live music and comedy shows are often being performed in the lobby bar across from the billiards lounge, and locals and tourists pack the seats to enjoy a drink and a laugh. There is a mellow and welcoming vibe here, and with only nine rooms available, there is a good chance you will leave your stay with some new friends. Just a few dozen yards from the ski lifts, this is a great location to avoid wasting time in the car. In the morning you can grab some coffee and bagels, or you can enjoy their homemade ramen from the bar after a day on the slopes. In the summer there is plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the warm weather and the views of the nearby mountains. The Hot Water Inn is very animal friendly, so bring the pups along. You can grab some hot dogs at Irving's Red Hots, a local favorite, or head to the Apple Bar and Grill for more options. Both are just a short walk away.
The Warm Springs area is tucked away in northwest Ketchum, and staying here gets you off the beaten path a bit. A bus service can take you into town.
