Our ski club stayed at the Ptarmigan Inn for our one week trip. The staff was very friendly and the manager Bill did everything possible to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The hotel restaurant was absolutely excellent, and the food was reasonably priced. We ate there almost every night. The room was cozy and the hotel location was... More

You can't beat the Ptarmigan Inn for the best ski in ski out location at Steamboat. All staff members are friendly and helpful. In particular, General Manager, Ben Franko, does all he can to ensure that his guests enjoy their ski vacation and he addresses any concerns or requests quickly and efficiently. The on-site Snowbird Restaurant provides very good breakfast... More

We stay at the Ptarmigan Inn every ski trip. Despite the age of the building the overall experience is excellent. The management and staff could not be better, and it is the best ski-in ski-out hotel on the mountain.

Comfortable room, although they had to move us rooms due to the toilet not working in our original room, the staff was quick to solve the problem. The beds were comfy, and the mini fridge in the room was great.

We just completed a week long vacation to Steamboat Springs. The skiing and snow were the most ideal I've ever experienced. The hotel was old dated but clean The staff was upbeat and helpful. The restaurant was no big deal but the New Years special was surprisingly good. Wi-Fi was weak except in the lobby. The fan in the bathrooms... More

Went there the last week of December, it is a little "Rustic" but has all you need to have a good visit. It is located right at the base with only a short walk to the Gondola. The staff was very friendly, I ended up with a dead battery thanks to my boys leaving a doom light on in the... More

Quiet, comfortable, dated - exactly what you'd expect for the price. After a long day of hot springs, football in the park and Monday night football we all had a great night of sleep! Cereal, oatmeal, fruit, bagels and coffee included for breakfast... Now we are off again for a beautiful day in Steamboat Springs!

The Ptarmigan is located just off the Gondola Plaza; there are several good restaurants within walking distance. The hotel staff is great and have always been friendly and helpful. The price per night is excellent although you will forego many of the amenities nearby, more-expensive hotels provide. Life's a compromise. The breakfast is plentiful, but is described by the hotel... More

Was here with my ski club for a whole week. The pros: ski-in, ski-out, close to the resort village and resort restaurants, rustic lobby and hotel bar & restaurant. The cons: Outdated tv(Cathrode tube), weak room wifi signal, soft bed with little support, outdated carpet and outdated bathroom. If I weren't with the ski club, I would have picked somewhere...
