The walls seemed thin and the couple in the room next to us kept us awake until 1 am playing music and talking loudly. Everything else was AWESOME. It was my wife's birthday and I think we recieved a free upgrade to a beautiful corner room with a nice view and jetted tub. Thank you VERY MUCH!

Great hotel with helpful staff. Clean and comfortable. Great location, walk to dinner and breakfast. This is a great affordable alternative to higher priced "resort" options in the area. I've stayed at the resort properties too and this is very comparable for beds, room size and room comfort.

The Best Western Plus on Main Street is consistently clean and quiet, centrally located, and reasonably priced. It's a great option for a relatively short stay in the Wood River Valley. The price also includes a decent breakfast. One of the more reasonable options in Ketchum/SV.

We were pleasantly surprised with the Best Western Kentwood Lodge in Ketchum Idaho. It's smaller size, location, and decor give it a more boutique hotel feel. The location is right on the main street in Ketchum, close to shops and restaurants. It is less than a mile to the parking lot of Sun Valley ski resort. The rooms are large,... More

This hotel is nice. A little expensive at $170 a night for what you got. However the rooms are spacious the beds are comfortable and everything is clean. The hotel is about a mile away from the river run resort gondola but if you do not want to walk the mile there are buses about 100 yards away from the... More

The price of the room was too high for the experience. My fireplace never worked and no one did anything about it, despite my brining it to the front desk's attention. The hot tub turned by sterling silver rings green/black. I have used a lot of hot tubs and never have I had this problem. The front desk told me... More

We stayed at the Best Western Kentwood Lodge during our first trip to Sun Valley. We had a room with a fireplace and large kitchen which is great for having a quick breakfast prior to skiing. The hotel had ski lockers which we thought we would use but ended up keeping our gear at the ski lodge. The hotel is... More

Hotel was fine. Nothing extraordinary. The rooms were nice. Bedding really nice, rustic atmosphere. For $180/night I would have expected a little more. Hotels in this area are expensive tho. As far as food goes, we ate at The Sawtooth Club. Noisy, but fun and excellent food. The Kneadery was excellent; great rustic atmosphere. We had mimosas with our wonderful... More

We stayed here for a weekend of skiing and found this a very convenient place to stay. Free parking is available and it's a short drive to the slopes or if you prefer you can take the shuttle bus that picks up right across the street. After a day of skiing we relaxed in the hot tub and got cozy... More

We had surgery scheduled at the nearby hospital so the hotel was very convient and affordable, instead of a long drive in the wee hours of the morning to get there from where we live over the mountain.
