THE PORCHES have bought this little hotel and maybe after the 2007/8 season it will be leveled to make way for MORE CONDOS to add to the every spreading sprawl of condos at this once quaint western countryside that has totally lost it's western country appeal! Sadly, it is just a massive sprawl of million dollar condos on top of... More

Be aware of getting "stuck in the middle": We made reservations through the "TripAdvisor" web site, through links to Expedia and in turn Best Western -- but somehow the fact that some of our party were children got lost (children under 18 are supposed to stay free at Ptarmigan Inn, according to their web site). Expedia refuses to deal with... More

The front desk staff was very nice. The price was right, but the hotel is older and not really that great. The floor had that matted down look and the carpet in our room needed a good vacuuming. The sock found under the edge of the bed was less than appealing as well. The bathroom had some hair on the... More

We stayed one night here, mid-September - this is 'between season' in Steamboat, reflected in the room rate of around $60. We are experienced travellers, but had a bit of trouble finding it! This, it transpired, is due to a city-enforced absence of road signage, which we think is fine. (I see no other reviewers note this problem, so it... More

Lots of dirt. The floor looked like someone spit up on it and it was never cleaned up. There is something that looks like blood running down the wall. The lights don't all work and the toilet has something running down the front of it. However the last straw was when I opened the ice bucket and it looked like... More

I can't say enough good things about the staff. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone traveling with their pooch, and bargain hunters because they have some of the best rates in the area. Even if you don't stay try the restaurant, the menu's small but the food and service is better than the Slopeside Grill (both accomodate pooches on the... More

Went to Steamboat for a soccer tournament. The team had already booked this hotel. My family decided at the last minute to go. The only room available was for the 13th and the 15th. Nothing for the 14th, I would have had to find somewhere else to stay that night. The hotel called me when an opening came available. (WOW),... More

Great location right on the slopes. The hotel itself was small and personal, with a fire in the lobby fireplace day and night. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We met several families from other parts of the U.S. We had most breakfasts and dinners in the resturant. The food was good, service good. Our room was a little... More

Took my two daughters to Steamboat and we stayed at thePtarmigan Inn (Best Western). I'd have to say the staff were very friendly, and the Ski folks downstairs were awesome! Breakfasts were great, and atmosphere was fantastic! My only disappointment was I had to leave on Friday, when the snow was sooo good. Thanks again, and we will visit again.... More
