2nd stay within a 30 day window. Easy 5 - 10 min walk to heart of town. Folks at registration were very friendy, providing excellent advice. Loved the view, and rushing water sounds from the room balcony. The rooms were newly renovated and comfortable. We will be back!

We loved our 4 day stay at The Rabbit Ears hotel. The room was nice and clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel is super cute. We had a room with a back deck facing the river. It was nice waking up to a snowfall our last day there. Most important to us was the fact... More

We stayed one night in the motel about a week ago. This is an older hotel and hasn't really been updated, but it has everything you need, plus it is about the only decent hotel in the downtown area. All the better hotels are located closer to the ski areas. The bathroom is very small and is located right when... More

We stayed at the Rabbit Ears for a weekend of skiing and biking and soaking. The room was clean and new and ours was the deluxe with king bed, couch, fridge and microwave. Our balcony overlooked the Yampa river with a view of the mountains in the background. Breakfast was not continental, but toast, waffle, bagels, hard boiled eggs, cereals... More

Hard to find a better deal in a resort town. Shuttle stop steps away, hot springs right across street, easy walk to shops and restaurants. This isn't the Taj Mahal but nice enough for all but the snobby.

A classic Steamboat motel, Rabbit Ears was a perfect place to stay overnight on our recent trip to Strawberry Springs. You can walk to dining and entertainment. The grocery store is across the street. And the mineral public pools in town are also across the street. Good location, friendly staff, clean.

We stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed the walking trails and convenience to walking downtown shops and hot springs. Wonderful clean, comfortable, quiet room and affordable motel. Pride in family ownership stands our with all the modern upgrades.

We had a room in the back overlooking the Yampa River, and even in February enjoyed sitting out on the balcony relaxing in the late afternoon sun after great ski days. The shuttle to the slopes is extremely convenient, as is the hot spring right across the street. We found the staff to be extremely fun and friendly as well... More

If you are deciding to stay downtown, this is well and above the best choice for you. But I would only stay in the rooms that overlook the river so make sure you call and verify which class of motel room that is. If not, you will be stuck above the parking lot and near the main street which is... More

I appreciate your thorough review. You appear to be familiar with this property and Steamboat in general. The rooms in the main building are cozy, quiet and newly remodeled, although not on the river still provide a good value. Old Town Hot Springs provides a wonderful Hot Springs experience for the whole family and shouldn't be overlooked. Housekeeping is now... More

Very ffriendly motel. We had room 121, which we would reccomend. Doug at check in was nice and friendly, they have hookups for the hot springs across the street. The location in awesome. Room was good, not enough outlets. Shower was ok, it was tiled nicely, but they left in the framing of the sliding glass doors and just used... More

Thanks for your review. Our showers are newly remodeled and the glass shower door in your room was shattered. We do have a new one on order and should be installed very soon. We have had to improvise with a shower curtain until it is installed. We are installing outlet centers with USB ports on our night stands but hasn't... More
