Stayed at the Rabbit Ears Motel during a recent overnight visit to Steamboat Springs. This is a family owned motel with friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in a King Room with a pull out sofa that faced the Yampa River. The room was clean and the bed was VERY comfortable. The sound of the river mitigates the Highway 40... More

We stayed here 2 nights during the July soccer tournament. Clean rooms. Nice balcony. Great location right on the Yampa. Just steps away from the bike trail. It's nice to be able to walk to everything and not worry about driving/parking around downtown, though we had to drive to the soccer fields. Didn't make it to the hot springs across... More

This was a return to the past. I had stayed here during ski season a few times before. As long as 35 years before. It has been remodeled a few times and a new addition added. It still has the same quaint look, great location and friendly staff. The cost is also very competitive for the resort town. They have... More

We stayed here for a night and we were lucky to find a room as it was sold out. Our room was on the river, good size room and slept to the noise of the river, unfortunately were were the 1st room from the road so traffic was pretty loud, it basically covered the beautiful river noise during the traffic...

The whole facility is a throwback but comfy, clean, polished and exceptionally maintained like a vintage motel. Just a great stay. The receptionist was friendly and the price was right. I was in town for some meetings and walked to a nice restaurant. Easy bike ride to river road and Howelson

I've stayed in Steamboat many times but this is the first time I've stayed at the Rabbit Ears. Good choice. Friendly staff, clean rooms. The only issue I had was trying to make the reservations directly with them. Their website needs some help as does the staff I spoke with on the phone. However, it all did work out and... More

This is a lovely motel in Steamboat Springs. We had a corner room with king bed facing the Yampa River. The room was lovely. The motel is located right across the street from the natural Hot Springs pools. You can get discount tickets the motel's front desk. A continental breakfast is provided. A really good place to stay. i wish... More

We have stayed here many times and really like the rooms near the River. Rooms come with fridge and a micro wave, you can also get a reduced rate on the hot springs across the street. Easy walking distance to the main downtown shopping and restaurants.

Wife and i headed to steamboat for the 4th of July weekend. Decent flyfishing right behind the hotel resulting in a few browns. Decent accommodations at a budget price compared to the rest of this town. Walking distance to everything. Clean, comfortable and affordable. Alot of bang for your buck.

We stayed here twice, once in 2011 with a (2 yo and 4 yo) and once in 2015 (with a 6yo and 8yo). The best thing is the location and we enjoyed having a balcony overlooking the Yampa river. When the kids were little we really appreciated having the free breakfast, too. The hotel is not at all fancy, but... More
