This could be a great hotel. The lobby is warm, welcoming and nicely furnished. The staff is friendly and the location on Main and 6th is walking distance from bars, shops and restaurants. There's even a brewery in the building. We had spectacular views of Baldy through our enormous windows. The bed was comfy and the linens clean. BUT...the place... More

First let me point out that the staff here is amazing - friendly and attentive - in a genuine way. They really are fantastic but this place desperately needs a complete renovation. From the noisy wood planked walkways (floors two and three) to the old carpet covered in dirty traffic areas, the dated 80's furniture to the tiny TV's with... More

The Clarion Inn feels like it is a downward spiral of neglect. I take an annual motorcycle trip with a couple of buddies and we manage to get to Ketchum every few years. We've always stayed at the Clarion for several reasons: First price - it is affordable Second location - you can easily walk into town and visit great... More

We stayed 3 nights in this Clarion in Ketchum, ID in September. It was our first Clarion ever. The hotel was very large and sprawled out over a lot of property. It had a heated pool. It did not, however, have a breakfast bar. You were given a 10% discount at the little restaurant directly next to the hotel property.... More

Clean comfortable rooms, friendly staff, and located in central location in Ketchum, very near ski resorts and restaurants. Room heater/air conditioning unit was actually quiet enough that you can get to sleep. This is a beautiful little town. Will likely return next year for the same conference.

Starting with a rant with more general detail at the end: I got this at a discounted rate on Priceline. I travel a lot and I use Priceline a lot. Once in a while it appears that the hotel decides that since I purchased the room at a discounted rate that they can stick me in the sub standard room.... More

Nothing special. Staff was very friendly and the room was very large. However, the comforter had some stains, so we didn't sleep as cozily as we wanted. Also, the room temperature fluctuated too much even with the A/C. Everything was pretty outdated, too, but that's not a big deal if you're just sleeping.

Every year my husband and I go to Ketchum for Wagon Days over Labor Day. We always stay at the Clarion. They are one of the only hotels in Ketchum that will accept a one night reservation over Labor Day weekend. Rooms are very comfortable with a fireplace, refrigerator and coffee maker. Pool is nice and there is a large... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. However, the rooms smelled musty and smoky (in a non smoking room), the shower was moldy and the carpets felt damp and dirty. The air conditioner was very noisy, making it hard to sleep.
