I have actually stayed at this hotel twice now. Once at the Lodge during ski season, and once at the Inn during the summer. I would prefer to stay in the Lodge during the winter because of the awesome outdoor hot tub connected to the hotel.
The resort itself is not on the ski mountain, but the whole area is so small it doesn't really matter. I walked into town from the resort during the summer, and the whole area is beautiful.
The hotel is quite old, and I would say that the bathrooms could stand to be updated, but the room itself is always very clean, nice, and comfortable. The staff in the hotel have been very helpful on both my visits. I would try to get a room on the highest floor possible of the hotel, just because the ground floor rooms are very much ground floor, and if there's a lot of foot traffic, there's a little less privacy.
Truly, I didn't spend much time in the hotel during the winter--there's so many other things to do. My visit during the summer was shorter, and I spent more time in the hotel that visit. The food in the hotel is fantastic as well.
Also, if you can afford it, fly into the Ketchum airport, especially during the summer. The drive from Boise is very nice, but the airport is very small, and super easy to get into and out of. They only fly puddle-jumpers though from either Salt Lake or Boise, and I could forsee bad weather causing problems if you flew out of Ketchum during the winter, but I could think of worse places to get stuck!
