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

Perhaps the planets were misaligned for the 3 days we spent at this property. While the location is ideal for snow sports enthusiasts, the property itself is in dire need of repairs and updating. The first room we were assigned was as far as you could possibly get from the lobby area. The receptionist suggested we carry all our luggage... More

We stayed here for one night with our two young children. We were staying three days at a cabin in nearby Clark and decided to come up a day early and stay in town. The Ptarmigan was by far the best value for hotels in Steamboat that I could find with a few days notice (got a good deal through... More

This hotel is in a great location, it is right next to the Gondola. While the hotel is outdated, our room was very clean. The staff at the front desk were extremely nice & helpful throughout our entire stay. The pool and hot tub were well maintained. We stayed here during the Wine Festival in the summer & are planning... More

Large, clean rooms practically under the gondola at Steamboat Springs! Continental breakfast was mostly carbs but enough to get you going in the morning! Pools were clean but not warm enough to be in while we were there (rainy weather). The Ptarmigan would be ideal during the winter ski season! Summer is great as the summer concerts and restaurants are... More

I took my Ball team to the ptarmigan for the second time. We were there for four days and they were so friendly. Also very helpful as they let us have a huge crab boil on the back patio. Nice pool area also.

Fantastic location just across from the gandola (which we took up the mountain for brunch), very helpful front desk personnel. The rest was average or less than average. The Inn is quite outdated, can use a good renovation. Breakfast was much less than average and serviced by a man who did not appear to know what he was doing. There... More
