I stayed at the Rabbit Ears Motel years ago and stayed there again in March. It's locally owned and efficiently run. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfy. We stayed in the back building where they allow dogs in the rooms and each room has a lovely balcony overlooking the walking path and creek. It's an easy walk... More

You're skiing. Who needs a fancy hotel.The Rabbit Ears is funky, real and fun with a huge huge free breakfast. Right across the street from the legendary Steamboat Hot Springs. Ski hard, come back to the Pink Ears, then hop across the street to the heart shaped pool. Night time is a quick walk down the Yampa River trail to... More

Just returned from the boat after spending 1 week at the Rabbit Ears Motel over Christmas. I wanted a different vacation over the holidays this year and decided to give skiing a try again in CO. My last skiing trip in CO was at Vail in 1989 and my criteria was to find a friendly low key ski town in... More

I have stayed here before and while it is nothing fancy the stay was always ok until this last time. There was an overcrowded horse trailer parked in the lot overnight. The horses wanted out and were kicking the sides of the trailer pretty hard. You can imagine the noise that made. When I called the front desk I was... More

We tried to do all possible to have guests who owned the horses settle them down. Finally at 11:45 pm they seemed to settle down. We did offer this guest a free room upgrade away from the parking area but she refused to move. General Manager Greg Koehler More

Nicely situated at one end of the Main Street, but to be frank its location is the major asset. Otherwise just another motel- fine if you want or need to be in the middle of Steamboat Springs. The location was sadly spoiled on this visit because the entire main street was being dug up for roadworks and in entirety the... More

We're sorry you didn't thoroughly enjoy your stay with us. The road construction was a challenge for the whole community of Steamboat but thankfully has been completed and we are better than ever for our tourists. Rooms were renovated in May of 2010 so please try us again. General Manager Greg Koehler More

We targeted Steamboat Springs as a perfect overnight stop on our way from Jackson, WY to Estes Park, CO. It did not disappoint! Steamboat Springs is a bit of a geographical anomaly. This high elevation mountain resort town with its winter "champagne powder", protrudes between two long desert plains especially from the west and a bit to the east. The... More

We stayed at the Rabbit Ears Motel for 2 nights in August. We would have preferred an upscale hotel, but we wanted a place close to town.. Steamboat resort (at the mountain) is dead during summer. The town is hopping. Given the retro name, the sign, and Motel category, we assumed it would old, noisy and um, not very clean.... More

We enjoyed this motel. The downtown location was ideal for us. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The price was very modest. The bathrooms are the drawback, there is hardly room to move.

The motel is located in town walking distance to eating and entertainment. There is a small park next door and nice place for a walk. If your going to... More

We booked a weekend during Winter Carnival in Steamboat and I had happened to stumble upon Rabbit Ears while researching where to stay. It was perfect, could walk into town, up to hill for festivities and not worry about driving. The room was clean, staff was friendly and the price was right!!! If you are just heading to Steamboat and... More
