We have skied Steambot well over 20 years and stayed in many locations. For the last seven years we have stayed at Ptarmigan Inn. You will NOT find a nicer staff who honestly care about your experience and pay attention to every detail. The entire property is very clean and well maintained. It is about 20 feet from the slope,... More

We (two middle aged adults and a 12 yo daughter) just got back from Steamboat and were very happy with the Ptarmigan. This was our first real trip out west skiing and wanted a relatively cheap place convenient to the slopes. Mission accomplished. The decor is mid 70's but everything is clean. It's the basic 2 double bed, chain motel... More

We got a good deal here but after reading a bunch of online reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. Some people loved this place, others hated it. But, after seeing it for myself, I have to say it was great! Yes, the decor is a bit out of date, but our room was spacious, the pool was heated, it... More

I stayed at Ptarmagin in March 2009. It is directly on the slope just up hill from the gondola- true ski in ski out. Fabulous location. It is unpretentious and has the intimate feel of a small hotel with all amenities you need. Decor is dated but room is clean. On night of arrival, I was exhausted. Despite the late... More

We stayed in a king size suite. The room was dated as are the rest of the resort. There was a VCR player attached to the TV and VCR tapes for rent in a mchine in the lobby. All of the tapes were very old titles. The room did have everything we needed, but it was shoe horned in the... More

The sale price of the hotel was the main reason we chose this hotel, otherwise condos were better deals. Another reason were the reviews we read on this site about their great breakfast. That raised our expectations and we were quite disappointed. It was the less than normal fare with only cereal, white bread, and donuts. There was no protein,... More

My friend and I went up for the Steamboat Balloon Rodeo and we stayed at the Ptarmigan. The room was clean and comfortable. They have VCRs in the room which is a bit of a riot. Our room was hot the first night we were there and cold the second (the heating/cooling window unit wasn't exactly controlled by a thermostat).... More

We stayed in the summer and it was very nice. Pool was great! Upgraded to a suit for $20 extra a night! Well worth it! Hotel could use a little updating seemed a little old. Very good location right at the base of the skiing village area.

Can you believe the deal I got, 5 days @ the Ptarmigan which is 150 yards uphill from the Gondola, and airfare from Hartford to Hayden (35 min. by shuttle) for $547 RT. The hotel is older, but who cares when it's ski-in//ski out. Rumor has it they might be tearing it down for something else, so keep checking to... More

I saw the post on the bed bugs and could not believe there would be any. The room we had was comfortable, clean and the ski in-ski out was great. The hotel staff could not have been friendlier, to the point they offered us towels for a nearby hot springs tour which was going to charge us a $1 for... More
