My family stayed here for a weekend ski trip. If your reason for staying at the hotel is proximity to the slopes and base, then you won't be disappointed. We never had to drive our vehicle until we left Steamboat, we had all amenities at the hotel or other restaurants and shops near the at the ski village. The lobby... More

My family and I stayed here over a weekend. We booked a standard room with 2 queens. Our room was on the fourth floor and gave a nice view of one of the KVC Magic carpets. It is very dated. The beds, and decor look like they've been around. The food in the restaurant was ok, far from anything we... More

The location is the best part of this hotel. The decor is old and in need of remodeling. The room size was adequate but the bath is very small. The lobby is nice as well as the hotel bar. All the carpeting is in need of replacement. Getting luggage in and out because of the stairs.

A friend and I visited Steamboat (from Denver) in October for the season change. The hotel is a average/ affordable hotel. Everything is fairly outdated, but if all you're seeking is a place to sleep and a store your stuff, this should do. The location is ideal if you're into skiing and snowboarding. Skip the nearby expensive restaurants ect., right... More

The Ptarmigan Inn was actually a second choice for a September business meeting, but I'm glad I wound up there! The decor is a bit dated but that's easily off-set by the very friendly staff and off-season value price (less than a hundred bucks). The room was equipped with a fridge, coffee maker and conveniences that you would expect. Quiet,... More

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Our room was tight and everything was outdated.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 The place is outdated, but it is the best value in steamboat springs.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
