We had a Groupon, so had a great deal on our stay. It's completely outdated, which added a bit of fun to the experience. We laughed a lot noticing things that have been there as long as we've been alive. It is right at the bottom on the hill and an incredibly easy walk to the Gondola. Our daughter was... More

If you like to ski hard all day and have a clean, ski in, ski out place to stay at night - this is it. If you need to be pampered, this is not the hotel for you. For my family of 4 it was awesome. We booked using our Rocky Mountain Super Pass privileges, making the cost super affordable.... More

This is the best value we found that is walking distance to the gondola. Yes - the place looks outdated, but it does have a retro charm. We were lucky to get a room on the 4th floor. It came with: FREE WIFI!, bath amenities, hairdryer, daily housekeeping service, alarm clock, fridge, and FREE WIFI! (have to repeat it). The... More

The staff was good, place was pretty clean (just old), breakfast downstairs was great each morning and so convenient. having Christy's ski rental... More

Just terrible...Let's start with the front desk. Not at all friendly, kind of felt like I was at a motor vehicles counter. Everyone single one of them. Our slopeside room was actually in the basement. When we asked for another room, they told us they didnt' have any. We didn't believe them, so called pretending to be a new customer... More

Cozy room, hot,hot tub, close to fun and fine playground that Steamboat Mtn resort offers... Great fridge, missing a microwave but has a restaurant, back deck to watch your kids in lessons at and very close proximity to the base of the Mtn. We had a VCR in our room and needed a DVD player... Surprise... They had one at... More

The front desk staff is excellent and the bar is cozy friendly. Hanging out in the large hot tub with a bunch of people is really fun and the big pool is usually warm enough to swim in. great access to the ski resort and all the food and entertainment places right there. The rooms and common areas are a... More

As I was told when house shopping: location, location, location! That's why this place gets the 4 star rating, it is right on the ski hill as advertised. We opted for a slopeside room, and we pretty much left the hotel on skis and ended up right at the gondola. So...about the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, the... More

First of I have to say I LOVE Steamboat Springs. If I could move there permanently I would. However for just a weekend bout to the boat Ptarmigan Inn provides an affordable way to enjoy the city. Ptarmigan is no frills but very comfortable and friendly staff. The Pool/Hot Tub are nice and always clean. While you are there you... More

We just got back from a Steamboat Springs vacation in February. This hotel has the best location, great (cheap) happy hour, super friendly staff, and where else do they offer free VHS rental! Actually, where else do they have VHS players in the rooms?!?! I would stay here again for sure. Excellent value for the money. There is even a... More
