My husband and I come to Steamboat at least once a year on our motorcycles. We have had to stay other places when Rabbit Ears is full, but definitely Rabbit Ears is our first choice. We like the king rooms. They don't have a view of the river, but they have a private back balcony and are very clean. They... More

My friend had made the reservations and evidently booked 2 double beds. When we got there the person in the office said she was upgrading us. I don't know which part of the hotel the original room was, but we were in the most easterly building and the river ran right behind our first floor room. We had a balcony,... More

Booked during the last Tour of Colorado Pro Bicycle Race...Easy walk to finish line. Walk to the Yampa River and Howelson Hill. Many restaurants near by. Classic Steamboat small town charm. Very nice staff!!!!.

I so wanted to love our stay at Rabbit Ears. Planned a short trip in with my kids and read all the great reviews. Soundsd right up our alley and I am pretty darn easy going. We started off waiting 10 minutes at front desk w/no one home after a long drive. Then the front desk rep was more concerned... More

We are sorry and disappointed your stay wasn't as expected. It appears we got started of on the wrong foot by your wait at the front desk. This time of year it is busy, but your wait is unusual. Customer service is a priority. The room is over 380 square feet with 2 queen beds and a day couch and... More

We stayed in a queen room here and it was very clean and quiet. Room was definitely on the small side, but that didn't really matter to us since we were in Steamboat Springs to enjoy outdoor activities and hardly spent any time just hanging out in our room.The bed was super comfortable and shower was great. The location is... More

We had two rooms here in June of 2014 for one night. Steamboat springs wasn't our primary destination as were were headed to Yellowstone on our motorcycles. This was just a place to rest up overnight, but we like to stay in places with a little history when we can as opposed to the dime a dozen chain motels. The... More

We planned our family vacation with another family for Steamboat and booked our stay at the Rabbit Ears Motel because of its proximity to the Yampa and the hot springs. We were all so sweetly surprised by its location to both and it's vintage charm! We all slept so perfect while listening to the river in our clean, comfortable, beds.... More

We stopped on the way from Colorado to Montana on a hot springs tour, and stayed an extra day to experience Steamboat Springs. The Rabbit Ears is an excellent place to stay. It is close to everything since it is on Lincoln (highway 40). We were able to rent bicycles 2 blocks away to ride the Core Trail next to... More

I stayed here with my sister for a quick overnight ski trip in December. It was around a busy holiday time and we were able to book a room last minute. The room was extremely affordable and surprisingly nice. The room was clean, the bathroom was recently remodeled and tiled. It was small, yes, but we were simply looking for... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Luxury night's sleep minus the luxury price The Rabbit Ears Motel, located in beautiful Steamboat Springs, Colorado, is your choice for comfortable, affordable lodging right in the center of downtown. Either they built Steamboat around our motel, or our motel was conveniently built in the center of all the action. So, both ways, you know that all the activities and nightlife the valley provides are in close proximity. Choose a weekend get-away for the family, or stay with us the whole week. World-class skiing with slope-side ski-in, ski-out convenience is expensive and overrated. Our motel is right on the main street and just a 5 minutes' bus ride to the gondola and the base of the ski area. Oh, and the bus is free. Lastly, all our guests are welcome to get reduced-priced Old Town Hot Springs passes for our recreation center, just across the street. ... more   less
