Don't visit the Inn if it's over 75 degree's they don't have a/c anywhere in the Hotel, too hot to sleep, too hot to have a drink at the bar. They will bring you a swamp cooler that sounds like a 747 taking off in your room. Inn is under staffed and it's a nice room with the hardest bed we've ever slept on.

Dear Herb B,

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. I apologize that you had a rough stay with us due to the lack of AC. We want all of our guests to have an exceptional experience at Knob Hill Inn, and you did not receive the type of stay we strive to provide.

We've been working on an AC solution for our building for some time now, but the concrete structure has posed some difficulty getting a quality soluition in place. I'm circling back to your review to inform you that we recently finished our AC install, and all of our guest rooms now have climate control. The rooms can get downright cold if you set the unit low enough, and you can control all of the settings from bed with a remote.

I hope you will come stay with us again and give us a chance to earn your loyalty back.

All the best,

Andrew Wall

Beautiful hotel with amazing service. Rooms are lovely, spacious and well- appointed with great bed and bathroom; view of mountains toward Hemingway cemetery just breathtaking. Terrific restaurant in gorgeous garden setting, but make a reservation - very popular among locals!
The staff and service at KHI beyond fabulous- personal service not normally found in the US. Many standouts, but to name a few: Kyle who took our reservation, concierge Marie, Kyle who valet parked for dinner and had the best hiking suggestions, and the young man who drove us all around town.

As others have mentioned, hotel is walking distance to heart of ketchum but has a remote feeling, and the free shuttle service is a big plus.

Lastly, it was hot in July and the hotel could definitely use air conditioning in the guest rooms. Hopefully that will be addressed before next summer!

Wonderful boutique hotel that is walking distance to downtown. Terrific staff, and excellent restaurant. We stayed in July and the weather was unusually warm during the day. The hotel did not have AC so it was a bit warm in early evening in our BR. Hopefully they decide to correct that.

Room Tip: Big mountain vistas from the 4th floor looking north or west.

A tremendous four days. I was fortunate to stay an additional day, and the hotel was both helpful and fun to deal with. I felt they cared and wanted to be sure I was satisfied and happy. I was. I am hoping to stay there again during the film festival next spring.

Room Tip: AC might be necessary if this global warming continues!

The staff is very helpful and friendly. It's just a few blocks from downtown Ketchup, but far enough away it status quiet and free from the bustle of a tourist town. The hotel has an old palace feel to it. Which slays for an imaginative mind to feel like royalty. It is an intimately beautiful hotel safely tucked into the side of a mountain. Beautiful landscape to enjoy the view.

Room Tip: No A/C but the cool nights and mornings help with a very relaxing stay

Loved our room, it was spacious, clean and felt luxurious, especially the bathroom. We had dinner at the restaurant and it was most amazing. Great service, great food, great setting. Only advice is that we did not make a reservation because it did not seem too crowded but it seemed like it was much busy later in the evening. So our seating ended up being 8.45pm. Loved everything about this place!

The hotel could not have been any better. Friendly and helpful staff, spacious rooms, great continental breakfast included, convenient location within walking distance of downtown Ketchum, and an available shuttle service to go longer distances. We would be back in a heartbeat!
