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

We recently honeymooned at the Rabbit Ears Motel. We weren't sure at first, as pictures online can be deceiving. But upon entering our room we found it very spacious, clean, well cared for with newer fixtures, carpet, bedding, etc. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and the locals were kind to out-of-towners. Our only problem was that some... More

Considering the age of the motel, I wasn't expecting much. We were visiting only for a few days, and on a budget. We chose Rabbit Ears for it's pet policy and prime location. We requested, and received, a room on the river. The room was updated and clean. The staff was friendly. I couldn't ask for much more. The lobby... More

We stayed one night here summer 2013 on our trip around Colorado, mainly due to price, and the cute Bunny sign outside - just looked interesting!

We love this motel! The rooms look like they were recently updated, and the staff is always friendly. We stay here, because it's located across the street from the Old Town Hot Springs, and we walk across to warm up after a day of skiing. The free shuttle to the ski area also stops close to the motel. We can... 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
