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 Everything is fairly outdated, but if all you're seeking is a place to sleep and a store your stuff, this should do.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Our room was tight and everything was outdated.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 The place is outdated, but it is the best value in steamboat springs.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

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
