We stayed here 2 nights during our motorcycle trip. Although our room 210 had a deck facing Bald Mountain with great views, the facility needs lots of work. The stairway to the room is old, mildew all over shower tile, constantly dripping bar sink, glass door sliders that didn't open easily, ripped screen and their lodge sign lit up the... More

Good location, comfortable beds (if you like softer mattresses). Front desk staff was friendly, fast and helpful! Place was older, but not too bad. Large room with sofa and coffee table. Sink space was smaller and a challenge for my wife when she was getting ready. We stayed on a Monday night (Labor Day) and the next morning the alley... More

At $230/night, I expected at least a decent room. Not so. Was very dark and dingy and felt not clean. The area for the ice machine smelled bad, the bed was not comfortable (too soft for me). It is very conveniently located in downtown Ketchum but we will not be back. I was surprised that it got 4stars on TA... More

The lodge is conveniently located in the middle of town within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Our room was much larger than the typical hotel room and was very comfortable. Laundry facilities were on site. The lodge is showing its age although efforts to keep it in good condition were obvious. There is no included breakfast and no restaurant... More

This facility has a 14 day cancellation policy. But aside from that I cannot fault the place except for the lumpy pillows. I would expect better for the price of the room. We had a late check in and were accommodated nicely by the front desk clerk who came out of his room to see that we got our key.... More

A full week before our one-night reservation, we had a tragic death in the family. Despite my call to the property to explain the situation, they refused to refund any portion of our $140 reservation. I was shocked and disgusted. We will certainly never give them our business again. Heartless.

Dear Ms. Emly F, We are so very sorry about your loss and we hope your family is doing ok at this time. We always feel very badly when these situations occur however our cancellation policy is based on guests making plans for resort locations well in advance and our need to reserve those rooms and turn other guests away...

Clean and comfortable motel. A bit dated, but the room was large and the bed very comfy. The motel staff were friendly and helpful. The location was within walking distance for dinner and breakfast. Small balcony, large TV and sitting area.

A great little place - in the heart of downtown Ketchum! Seriously, walking distance to everything. Everything. It was quaint, clean and very comfortable. We loved our adjoining rooms that exited to the cute little courtyard. And some nice attention was recently paid to the landscaping. Overall, very pleased with this little hotel.

The property can't be beat for location and easy access to town. But, it comes with a price. Noise! Part comes from within the hotel walls, which are very thin, and a lot comes from the location. It is an old tired property, shower drain didn't work, chips in the paint, it felt like a throwback to the 70's! Pretty... More

We stayed in one of the fireplace (pet friendly) rooms. We were only there one night, but enjoyed our stay. Although it is older, there have been some updates and the room and property was very clean. Everything worked well and the room was spacious. It was nice being able to exit the room from the slider and go through... More
