Top notch inn. We just stayed for 4 nights in one of the King Suites that was large and comfortable. Housekeeping keeps the rooms spotless , the bedroom was comfortable with perfect options for lighting . The cook to order breakfast was a nice touch with a daily special. Knob Hill is right on the edge of town so we walked everywhere. I high recommend the Knob Hill Inn!

We just returned from a great five day trip to Sun Valley where we stayed at the Knob Hill Inn. We had a super time and thoroughly enjoyed staying at this sweet little inn within walking distance of downtown Ketchum.
The hotel service was exceptional. The staff were totally engaged and helpful. (esp Michael who drove us around, Andy on the front desk, and the manager, a delightful man that we visited with frequently)
I have only great things to say about this hotel. Our room was large, very clean, exceptionally comfortable and very, very quiet. Our travelling companions were right across the hall in an almost identical room. Breakfast, which is included, was excellent. Many choices. The on-site restaurant, (though not directly part of the Knob Hill, I don’t think,) is superb. We dined there one evening and had room service another.
Everybody on staff helped us find nooks to sit and play Rummicube!
I have to mention the available on demand shuttle. Michael took us to the River Run lift and dropped us off on our ski days. (And picked us up at the end of the day when we called). He loaded and unloaded our skis and generally took care of us. This was a super service! I believe that the hotel would have shuttled us anywhere we needed to go, but the location is so great that we walked into downtown Ketchum every night.
We had one little glitch that isn’t worth expanding on, and the manager discussed it with us and apologized, even though it wasn’t his or the hotels fault. He was great. (I just can’t remember his name! My bad)
Did I mention the lovely pool and sauna?
We had contemplated staying in the Sun Valley village, where we have stayed in the past, and are so glad that we didn’t stay there. So far away from Ketchum where all the options for food, drink and entertainment are.
I wouldn’t recommend this hotel for families. We travel a lot with our grandchildren and we were glad to not have to share this little gem of a hotel with children.
If you are going to Sun Valley and are looking for a great place to stay, close to action but quiet and very comfortable, this is it.
I could go on and on.
Thank you, Knob Hill and Staff, for a great visit and many great memories!

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Knob Hill for two nights during a cross country road trip. The hotel is charming, well-appointed, and centrally located to the restaurants and shops of Ketchum (the business/food/nightlife heart of Sun Valley), as well as world class hiking trails (which Josie, at the concierge desk, helped us navigate).

We thought the hotel balanced safety precautions surrounding Covid without being irrational in a very tasteful manner.

The rooms are spacious and have balconies with great views of the surrounding mountains and rolling hills.

The food at the restaurant is excellent, and the bartender (“O.C.”) felt like a friend by the time we left after two days. He was really knowledgeable about the area and we took him up on his recommendation for an epic hike to Pioneer Lodge.

And about that hike: we did it (HIGHLY recommend it), but ended up taking a wrong turn on the return trip and ended up on the other side of the mountain, 15 miles from our car. We called the hotel, and they sent Katelyn to come pick us up and take us to our car (the whole journey was probably over an hour for her). Like OC, she was so friendly, knowledgeable of the area, and made us feel like VIP guests (which we are not).

We loved our stay, and will absolutely be back when we come for ski season.

This is the second time we have stayed at Knob Hill. We stayed here over the busy Labor Day Weekend and the hotel was fully booked but they can handle it. We reserved room 416, a suite that accommodates a dog and has a separate living area where our children slept. We had a massive private deck overlooking Dollar Mountain and it's where we enjoyed our morning coffee. Dinner was amazing at their restaurant. The Idaho Rainbow Trout was one of the best I've had! The room was cleaned perfectly every morning. We ordered ice cream two nights from room service and it was delivered promptly and it was pints of local ice cream called Toni's.
Beautiful bathrooms, lots of towels, L'occitane bath products, tons of storage room/drawers for clothes. Overall I highly recommend this hotel. Staff is attentive and nice and it's nice that its not a chain and supporting local is important to us.

My wife and I took off for a weekend to Sun Valley and were fortunate enough to land at Knob Hill. This is a super place - I almost don't want to say too much good as we want to go back and be able to get in! We had booked a fireplace room, and were kindly upgraded to a fireplace 1 bedroom suite. The room was wonderful - large balconies overlooking the mountains, a wood burning fireplace (that they come and light!) and a very nice large bath. The only negative is the room is beginning to show some signs of wear, but that is a minor blemish to a wonderful property.

The staff is one of the best I have seen, and I lead the hospitality practice for a major search firm so I have seen lots of properties. Special shout outs are due to Bryron, who was our driver and fireplace maker one night; Jacob, who did the fire another night and was our bellman; Reagan, who was our breakfast server and driver; Miranda, who was front desk and driver; and a great bartender (MSU grad) whose name we did not catch. All staff worked together and were very much "guest first" focused - friendly, personable, and wanting to make our stay memorable which they did. The ability to have a "driver on command" was wonderful, and made skiing easy and dinners a pleasure. We'll be back if we can for sure!!!

My wife and I were so looking forward to staying at Knob Hill Inn and skiing Sun Valley a few years ago but I got hurt in a biking accident and couldn't return to skiing until late 2020-2021 season. We had paid in advance for 2 nights and the General Manger was nice enough to agree to allow us to use the 2 nights anytime in the future (in a letter). I recently went to re-book our stay and the current General Manager refused to honor the prior General Manger's commitment to us! BAD FORM. Scratch this place of my list of places to stay.....!

I'd love the chance to further discuss, we hope you and your wife can understand the demand for our winter peak season and many reasons why we are unable to accommodate two complimentary nights based on the information you provided.

We have enjoyed many lovely stays at the Knob Hill Inn. But we returned during the pandemic not knowing what to expect. Happily, the inn has managed to address safety concerns without compromising the elegant hospitality for which it is known. There are still cookies — but individually wrapped instead of in a cookie jar. Our room was spotlessly clean — but there were two personal protection packets discreetly placed on the bed. We had a delicious dinner — but the tables were widely spaced out in the divine garden. There was still breakfast — but ordered from a menu instead of self-served at a buffet. Kudos to this exemplary hostelry. We won’t get back to Switzerland any time soon. In the meantime, the Knob Hill Inn is a laudable substitute!

The Knob Hill Inn has it all - the Inn itself is wonderful, from the cozy lounge, accessible front desk, fireplace, grill room, breakfast room and more. We were in room 311, a spacious room with a separate closet area ands ink vanity, toilet room and room with a walk in shower and bathtub. Since I am an early riser, I could go down to the lobby (more like a library or den) and have fresh coffee and sit to read by the fire. The staff has it all going around 6:30 am. Breakfast is a lovely buffet plus freshly made eggs and toast to order.
The shuttle service is excellent. There is always someone available within 5 minutes to take you to the mountain or into town or wherever you want to go. The pick up at the mountain is as quick. And the staff is always cheerful and helpful.
The reservation staff recommended restaurants for lunch before we went. If you're looking for local and lots of fun, check out Lefty's an Grumpy's. When I made my Inn reservations, they suggested restaurant reservations. I suggest you call early since whereby we went was full.
House keeping was excellent. Staff is fabulous. We couldn't have been happier staying at the Inn.

We had a great weekend stay. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Our King deluxe room was large and comfortable with separate potty room and shower/soaker tub room. We loved the indoor hot tub and swimming pool and enjoyed the sauna--very relaxing and private. The breakfasts were superb! We will be staying there again!

My husband and I stayed here for our tiny destination wedding, and so appreciated everything the Knob Hill staff did to make us feel comfortable and welcome! From the sweet note in our (upgraded!) room on check-in to the "chocolates for the road" on checkout, everything was perfect. We also had our wedding dinner in the Grill at Knob Hill's private room, and it was an excellent choice! The owners Bob and Jolie answered all of our questions promptly and accommodated all of our requests, including a custom printed menu and last-minute changes. Our waitress, Brittni, was very friendly and recommended an excellent wine. The pacing of the courses was perfect and everything was delicious. We're truly grateful to the Knob Hill team for crafting such a great experience!

Answer from Andrew W
Ketchum, Idaho
ChrissyB124, Thank you for your question. Knob Hill Inn has previously not allowed dogs, however, we're happy to announce that has now changed. We have two rooms on property that accommodate dogs, so pending availability, we could accommodate your request. There is a $100 non-refundable pet fee that is charged one time per stay. The fee covers the cost of extra cleaning in the room, as well as the amenity that is provided for your canine companion. Thanks for asking this question. Please let me know if I may answer anything else. Warm Regards, Andrew Wall General Manager
