Management is the worst I've ever experienced and does not care about the customer experience, their reputation, or even money. You can't pay them to help you. Their cancellation policy is draconian, look it up. This place is a tourist trap intent on fleecing skiers. One the other hand the location is slopeside and is fantastic! I'm guessing they are...

Room was tight, patio useless (tiny with no chairs), fridge froze our food (even on lowest setting) and lobby smelled a bit musty with VERY old furniture BUT....beds were comfortable, room was clean and hot tub/pool area was great. What more do you need when skiing besides a good hot tub and comfortable place to sleep? Considering the Sheraton just...

Can't beat the ski in ski out location. The pool and spa were a welcome finish to our day. Also the bar was friendly and the service was good. While an update might be nice this place is value for money as is!

This is an older hotel and it shows. The rooms have not seen an update in several years, but they were clean and sufficient. This hotel is right on the slopes, it has a restaurant and bar, it has a pool and hot tub, it is steps away from the free city bus, and there is a ski rental shop...

I stayed at the Ptarmigan years ago and just completed another wonderful stay again. Sure it could use some updating, but it really does have charm and character. The staff is amazing!!!! Better service than the Sheraton where I stayed many times when in Steamboat. The location is awesome as is the bar and restaurant. I ate almost ever meal...

We had 48 skier in our group and enjoyed our stay at this ski/ski out hotel. The rooms were clean and maid service everyday. We had breakfast daily and a good variety of food each day. The hotel had a Valentine day dinner special that was outstanding as more than 30 of our skiers had a wonderful time and really...

This room would be great for a couple of ski bros or families looking for a convenient ski in/ski out location. After staying in condos the previous two years, I have to admit I was disappointed with the condition of our room. The hotel is set up on multiple levels so it was a challenge dragging all of our gear...

Stayed just one night as we passed through Steamboat. Great location, right on the slopes. Easy check in. Has on site parking. Didn't use pool or hot tub, but they looked good. Overall place is getting a bit tired & need of a an upgrade. Room was good. Plenty of space. Would stay again for a weekend/short stay.

The Ptarmigan Inn is in a prime ski-in/ski-out location near Steamboat's Gondola Square. It has a restaurant, free wifi, in-house Christy's ski rental location, and a ski concierge. For <$200/night, it would be hard to beat for the location and convenience. While little has been done to shed its late-60's/early-70s origins, for those of us who spent a lot of...

Even though the Ptarmigan Inn is not the most updated hotel, we really enjoyed our stay there. I made my reservation through Steamboat central reservations, and prior to my arrival, I spoke with Ben, the manager, who assisted us with deciding on the best level room for our stay. We did upgrade to a deluxe room, and found ourselves on...
