Luxury night's sleep minus the luxury price. The Rabbit Ears Motel, located in beautiful Steamboat Springs, Colorado, is your choice for comfortable, affordable lodging right in the center of downtown. Either they built Steamboat around our motel, or our motel was conveniently built in the center of all the action. So, both ways, you know that all the activities and nightlife the valley provides are in close proximity. Choose a weekend get-away for the family, or stay with us the whole week. World-class skiing with slope-side ski-in, ski-out convenience is expensive and overrated. Our motel is right on the main street and just a 5 minutes' bus ride to the gondola and the base of the ski area. Oh, and the bus is free. Lastly, all our guests are welcome to get reduced-priced Old Town Hot Springs passes for our recreation center, just across the street.

The staff was very friendly and curtious. The Motel could use an update , but the rooms were clean and the location was great . The view from our room was lovely as you could see the creek and you have your own balcony which was really nice.

After all these years of driving by the famous Neon Rabbit Ears sign, we finally stayed a night for the Winter Wondergrass Festival. We were able to check in early, and had a great room, king, with fridge and microwave, private balcony, 2nd floor, end unit- 211 with a nice view of the Yampa River. Our room had an updated bathroom, clean, nice artwork, cute sitting area, and good work station for a laptop. The bedspread was the only thing that I would trade in for a new one! Thanks for having us, we will be back again. Bus stop is the best in front of the hotel.

Our family loves staying at the Rabbit Ears when we visit Steamboat. The location is fantastic, the staff very friendly, the rooms overlooking the river are pleasant, if a bit outdated (for us this just adds to the character). However, I am always disappointed to see several bags of Styrofoam and plastic cutlery being sent to the landfill after breakfast is served each day. Paper cannot be that much more expensive, and it is the right thing to do. I will up my rating if they switch to paper.

The location is perfect. The bus stop is right outside the lobby, there's a grocery store next door and the hot springs are across the street. Breakfast is basic but adequate. The rooms are just what you'd expect. They need to upgrade the remote controls, microwaves and mini fridges though. Staff is very nice and friendly.

I can’t speak for the other rooms, but ours was apparently recently refurbished, clean and quiet. The room with double queens was a bit pricey for what I would normally pay for this quality of a room (about $130/nite for two) but to be expected in Steamboat. Amenities included a small coffee maker, refrigerator, television, and telephone. On the nightstand was a clock with built-in USB plug-ins for smartphones, etc. Their included continental breakfast (open at 5:30 am) was average in a comfortable room off the office. It’s located in the downtown Steamboat area with restaurants and shops within walking distance. Office staff were courteous and helpful.
