Excellent motel with spacious clean rooms. My room overlooks a river with a delightful balcony. Two large double beds. Tea and coffee facilities. Plenty of parking. Free WiFi. Continental breakfast. Conveniently situated over the road from the hot springs. Really recommended

Room was good, bed comfortable, walk in shower was a nice surprise. Only negative was the noisy AC unit. It was so noisy that sleeping with it on was impossible and turning if off made sleep impossible because the room got so hot and stuffy. Finally decided that sleep was more important than quiet and turned it back on at... More

Want to stay in the heart of Steamboat. Walk to downtown, put your float tube in behind the hotel, fish behind the hotel, walk across the street to the Hot Springs Park well this is the place. Rooms are standard, but your not in Steamboat for the rooms right? This was out second time there and I know there will... More

We loved our stay at the Rabbit Ears Motel. Our beautifully decorated room was perfect, with a balcony and view of the river, and the hotel is ideally located on one end of town, in walking distance to restaurants, shops, Botanic Park, and the Yampa River Core Trail. The front desk staff are exceptionally helpful, friendly, and professional, and the... More

I've stayed here many times over the years and the upgrades to the room were so nice to see! This was my husband's first time here and he agreed he'd come back. We were in town for the Steamboat Stinger Mtn bike race and the motel is perfect for that as it's close to the start/finish line. You can also... More

This was the closest hotel to strawberry park hot springs. Perfect location. The old downtown springs are across the street literally and strawberry park is up the mountain. The hotel rooms have a great balcony that is perfect for smoking. Breakfast is non existent.

The recent upgrade is fantastic, . Getting a room along the river is a must, you can fall asleep to the sounds of the river. Very clean. Walking distance to town. The Staff was awesome. We stay here every time we come to Steamboat.

This cute motel on the edge of downtown really exceeded our expectations. Our room was uniquely configured and totally remodeled, something we noticed immediately due to the high end finishes in the bathroom, similar to that found in the new Westin at the Denver airport. The room also had A/C (our house in Winter Park only has natural A/C)! With... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
