“Enjoyed our stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We had two rooms here in June of 2014 for one night. Steamboat springs wasn't our primary destination as were were headed to Yellowstone on our motorcycles. This was just a place to rest up overnight, but we like to stay in places with a little history when we can as opposed to the dime a dozen chain motels. The price was average and the rooms were clean, so overall we were happy with our stay. Only thing I noticed was that the guest book in the room stated there was a fee to use the pool, so we didn't even go. I'm not sure if that was correct so maybe management can chime in. In all my travels I've never seen a motel that charged an additional fee for pool use. Other than that all was good. We did use the laundry facilities which were good, and the front office has detergent packs for sale for a small fee.

Been staying here for work the last 4 years . . Great location , yampa river gives great white noise in warmer months . Walk to any downtown restaurant or across the street to hot springs . Breakfast is nothing to rave about but it's something . Rooms are nice and clean and staff is nice. Dog friendly is a plus .

We planned our family vacation with another family for Steamboat and booked our stay at the Rabbit Ears Motel because of its proximity to the Yampa and the hot springs. We were all so sweetly surprised by its location to both and it's vintage charm! We all slept so perfect while listening to the river in our clean, comfortable, beds. The staff was extremely helpful and kind. We wouldn't look to stay anywhere else in town. Once we were there we left our car parked the entire time and walked everywhere we wanted to go, including the alpine slide. It's no wonder this little gem has been doing business for so long! It shows that they value their trade and their customers!

We stopped on the way from Colorado to Montana on a hot springs tour, and stayed an extra day to experience Steamboat Springs. The Rabbit Ears is an excellent place to stay. It is close to everything since it is on Lincoln (highway 40). We were able to rent bicycles 2 blocks away to ride the Core Trail next to the Yampa river. Everyone in town seems so nice including the people at the motel. We really liked the remodeled hot springs on the other side of the highway. Ask at the motel desk for discounted entry tickets.

Room Tip: The highway is loud due to the truck traffic, so pick a room as far away from the road as possible...

I stayed here with my sister for a quick overnight ski trip in December. It was around a busy holiday time and we were able to book a room last minute. The room was extremely affordable and surprisingly nice. The room was clean, the bathroom was recently remodeled and tiled. It was small, yes, but we were simply looking for a place to crash for the night. The outside is deceiving. This is a Steamboat Springs staple and the locals and staff were all pleasant and welcoming. It's close enough to walk downtown to the restaurants and shops. I will definitely stay here again.

We recently honeymooned at the Rabbit Ears Motel. We weren't sure at first, as pictures online can be deceiving. But upon entering our room we found it very spacious, clean, well cared for with newer fixtures, carpet, bedding, etc. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and the locals were kind to out-of-towners. Our only problem was that some of our skiing neighbors wore their boots up and down the stairs, clanking around for an hour in the afternoon, and again in the morning. Not the motel's fault by any means, just inconsiderate neighbors. Otherwise the motel was within walking distance to many restaurants, and Main Street which is charming. We'd love to come back!!

Considering the age of the motel, I wasn't expecting much. We were visiting only for a few days, and on a budget. We chose Rabbit Ears for it's pet policy and prime location. We requested, and received, a room on the river. The room was updated and clean. The staff was friendly. I couldn't ask for much more.
The lobby breakfast was not awesome, but you get what you pay for. My only true complaint is that the grounds, especially near the riverfront, were littered with trash.

Room Tip: There are multiple buildings on the property. One building has a decent view of the river, but anoth...

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
