Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 7, 2012

We stayed 9 days and it was wonderful.The staff is welcoming, helpful, friendly, caring, accommodating and they went above and beyond to make our stay fabulous. The rooms are beautiful, cozy, lavish and clean. The beds are so comfy! The couch in front of the fireplace in the lobby is an awesome place to curl up and read a book and do a little people watching.The jacuzzi is a great place to unwind and relax in the evening. The location couldn't be better. We easily walked to several fine places to dine and shop. Ketchum is a place of beauty. I was blown away by the breath taking scenery. I will definitely be staying here again on my next visit to the area. I think it would be hard to find an equal to luxurious comfort of staying here.

If you're planning a trip to Ketchum, Idaho, then this is THE place to stay! Summer, winter, or the off-season, doesn't matter - it's a beautiful hotel, super comfy, and there's plenty of space for all your gear. The hotel is within walking distance to all the fun spots in this charming alpine village, and everyone was so helpful and friendly. The entire staff was genuinely happy, and made sure we had everything we needed - you won't lack for a single thing! I can't wait to go back, and I wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else!!! (Special thanks to our hosts - they made it even more wonderful!)

Room Tip: Just tell them what you need and they'll make sure everything is perfect for you!

We stayed here two nights on a recent weekend. The hotel is clean and well-kept, the rooms were comfortable, and the desk staff was very pleasant. It also has an indoor pool and exercise area, but we did not use those, although both were quite busy at different times. There is nothing that I would say was particularly outstanding about the hotel, but also nothing that was a problem. If we are in the area again, we would likely stay here again.

This hotel is at the southern end of Main Street, and within easy walking distance of numerous restaurants, grocery stores, etc.

Stayed overnight on a weekend motorcycle trip to see the Fall colors. We were given a balcony room overlooking a park, Main Street and ski area. The room was extremely clean and the spa tub in the room was a great addition after walking and snacking our way through Ketchum. The double sink vanity was great and there was plenty of room to spread out our things. The proximity to all the restaurants and shops as great and we would definitely stay here again.

Not normally a fan of best western hotels but this one is an exception. Clean and comfortable with a nice location at the edge of town. Park and walk to everything. We had a suite that was very large with a full kitchen. The hotel is well kept, staff is friendly and I would not hesitate to stay here again. Although they don't serve breakfast they do supply a voucher for a breakfast at the adjoining restaurant. You can easily get a filling, hot breakfast with the voucher. Hotel pool and exercise room were nice. No complaints, I highly recommend this hotel.

Your high recommendation to stay with us is very well appreciated. We are glad to hear you had a friendly stay with us,and were quite comfortable with your accommodations. The cafe does have a nice assortment of breakfast options and this was a reason to let our guests be able to choose their own combinations in giving a complimentary voucher. We are glad you enjoyed our other amenities such as our location, the indoor pool,spa and exercise room with the great views they have to offer also.

If you're looking for THE place to stay in Ketchum where you can walk to the restaurants, stores, and Mt. Baldy's gondola, pet the horses at Sun Valley stables, and leave your car parked, then Best Western Kentwood is the answer to your question of "where should I stay?" If you can get a room with a balcony even better! Vicky and Joseph at the front desk were so helpful and accommodating. We can't wait to come back!
