The staff at the Best Western PLUS Kentwood Lodge was great. They seemed to like their job and were all very accomodating. The price is quite high, but EVERTHING in Ketchum, ID is expensive. The staff at BW was tops. I found nothing else pleasant other than the scenery in Ketchum. The staff at the 2 restaraunts we ate at... More

During our cross-country car trip -- this is Day 87 -- we have had two stops where employees who happened to be staying at that hotel were plain and simply, A Menace To Society. Sadly, both times it was a Best Western. The first time, the chap in the next door room -- an employee -- played his guitar for... More

Stayed here last week. It is one the south edge of town, literally one of the first buildings you see as you enter Ketchum. As others have noted, the hotel is a bit dated, and the furnishings are "more western" than some people are used to. That said, the hotel is clean, the staff is helpful, the beds are great,... More

We were so pleasantly surprised and loved our stay at this hotel. The room was very nice with a good view and balcony. The facility was very very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. We also loved that we could walk to everything. Would highly recommend this place.

If you want to stay in town, this is one of the very options available. Thankfully, it is a good one. Though the facility is somewhat dated and the décor is mountain kitsch, the rooms are spacious and exceptionally clean. The location is great and the parking is convenient. One negative, the AC unit is noisy. Also, half of the... More

I had not stayed in a Best Western property for many years, due to poor quality in the past. I decided to try this hotel because of the listed amenities. Upon checking in, we were given coupons for breakfast at an adjoining restaurant that did not open until 8:00am. Our schedule had us leaving before then, so not a useful... More

Dear Kristine,I am sorry to hear that your schedule and the cafe's did not mesh. Many of the resturants in Ketchum do not open until 8am which is a norm. So in having a small microwave and refridgerator in every room; these are nice amenities to help in this regard. There is also a grocery store just 2 doors away... More

We were really looking forward to staying in Ketchum-Sun Valley and chose this hotel as the best sounding of the possible choices. We were disappointed. The hotel is an old one that someone has tried to update. The décor (western) is quite outdated. The halls smelled of disinfectant and the odor was strong. The other problem is there is no... More

Hotel was exactly what you would expect a Best Western to be in terms of decor, amenities, and cleanliness. We had been staying in a house at SunValley Resort just up the road and decided to stay in the area for an extra day. I was surprised we were able to get 3 rooms so easily with all the visitors...

We spent a weekend at the Kentwood and have nothing but good things to say about our experience. The staff was very friendly and the room very large, clean and quiet.

The location of this Best Western is awesome. It is walking distance to the historic Pine Lodge and Ernest Hemmingway's grave. The hotel, the cemetery and the Pine Lodge are all on the east side of Main Street. The sign for the Best Western is small. The rooms were awesome. The beds were large enough to fit 3 or 4... More
