It is on the Gondola Square, there is a gondola station close, bus stop, the buses are free. The staff is very friendly, there is a small swimming pool and a hot tab. You can rent video tapes, and watch them in the room. There is dry breakfast. The rooms are clean.

Our room was tight and everything was outdated. The bedcoverings were clean but old - actually everything in the room was old but the bed was comfortable. The hotel is on the mountain, close to the gondola, where the buses load to take people downtown. The buses are convenient because parking can be difficult to find downtown, especially on a... More

We stayed for Memorial Day weekend. Tanya was there all weekend and she was always smiling and helpful and just completely friendly. The place is outdated, but it is the best value in steamboat springs. We had a great time and will be coming back.

The staff at the hotel were very nice and welcoming which certainly helps to make any stay a better one. The continental breakfast was basic but complete and was a nice way to start your morning. We stayed in the summer but the location is right at the base of the gondola which would be incredible during the winter but... More

Stayed a week at the Inn. Ben made us very welcome. He was friendly, accommodating to all of us. We were a group of 38. They had a welcome party for us on our arrival day where everything was outlined and explained. The Happy Hour menu drinks were great. We also had a group dinner on our last night in... More

Absolutely loved everything about our 5 night stay at Ptarmigan with a couple exceptions. Took shuttle from Hayden airport. Dropped off right at front door. Check in was easy and fast. Room was just down hallway from lobby which was nice. Room was very basic. Older style TV box set with a VCR (no DVD). Decent channel selection at least.... More

We have stayed at the Ptarmigan Inn multiple times for multiple reasons. The location is the best reason. It is a ski-in/out and makes skiing at Steamboat Springs worth the trip. They allow you to park your car on-site when you arrive and also the day you leave. This is so convenient. The cost of the hotel is on the... More

We've stayed in the highest end hotels and resorts in Steamboat Springs over the years, but when traveling with our two sons (7 and 4) this winter, The Ptarmigan Inn provided EXACTLY what we needed. Our goals... to have EASY ACCESS to the ski school and gondola, outdoor pool and hot tub, plus space for our family of four. Our... More
