Visited Steamboat over December for a 5 day ski trip. We chose the Rabbit Ears because of the price. It was affordable, on the free city bus line, and within walking distance to great downtown shops and restaurants. I honestly thought the hotel couldn't have been that nice for the price, but we were pleasantly surprised upon arrival.
The room was extremely clean, maintained very well every day by the maid, had a great balcony and view, and even included a microwave and refrigerator! It was quiet at night and only a few blocks away from great downtown spots. Highly recommend Bistro CV for a nice, little-more-than-casual dinner. We will definitely come back to this hotel!
They also provide a continental breakfast which mainly breads. It would be milk, OJ, coffee, bagels, prepackaged waffles, english muffins, toast, cereal, yogurt, and oranges. Considering we were going skiing after breakfast every morning, the breakfast was somewhat lacking. We need more protein such as eggs and meat to prepare us better, but you can't really complain for a free continental breakfast.
Also, this is definitely an "older person" hotel. My boyfriend and I are in our late 20's, but when we checked in, the older lady scolded us and said we'd "be in a lot of trouble if we had a party." A party? Really? Do we look like we're 16? But she was friendly and pleasant other than that.
- 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
