We went to Steamboat Springs for one night on our way to the Rocky Mountain National Park. We enjoyed tubing on the Yampa River and the scenic drives in the area.
The Bunkhouse Lodge in is a decent hotel with some quirks. It is mainly focused at the winter season but it does accomodate travelers in summer too. The Lobby and breakfast area is pretty and we liked the moderate price, a very large, bright and clean room, good beds and fast internet. The room was very quiet as it was facing the moutains behind the building.
The hotel lobby closes at 10 and I was glad that I called them before making a reservation (I typically use the internet only), because we might have ended up with a reservation but nobody to check us in. The hotel is at the southern end of town, so you need a car to get around, which is no problem in summer. We were unhappy that there were no window screens, because behind the building, there is a swampy area generating a lot of mosquitos. This did not allow us to open the windows at night and let the fresh mountain air in. Also, the variety at breakfast was minimal. There was an issue upon checkout, as the quoted AAA rate was not honored, but eventually, the person at the front desk resolved it to our satisfaction.More
