We had 48 skier in our group and enjoyed our stay at this ski/ski out hotel. The rooms were clean and maid service everyday. We had breakfast daily and a good variety of food each day. The hotel had a Valentine day dinner special that was outstanding as more than 30 of our skiers had a wonderful time and really...

This room would be great for a couple of ski bros or families looking for a convenient ski in/ski out location. After staying in condos the previous two years, I have to admit I was disappointed with the condition of our room. The hotel is set up on multiple levels so it was a challenge dragging all of our gear...

Stayed just one night as we passed through Steamboat. Great location, right on the slopes. Easy check in. Has on site parking. Didn't use pool or hot tub, but they looked good. Overall place is getting a bit tired & need of a an upgrade. Room was good. Plenty of space. Would stay again for a weekend/short stay.

The Ptarmigan Inn is in a prime ski-in/ski-out location near Steamboat's Gondola Square. It has a restaurant, free wifi, in-house Christy's ski rental location, and a ski concierge. For <$200/night, it would be hard to beat for the location and convenience. While little has been done to shed its late-60's/early-70s origins, for those of us who spent a lot of...

Even though the Ptarmigan Inn is not the most updated hotel, we really enjoyed our stay there. I made my reservation through Steamboat central reservations, and prior to my arrival, I spoke with Ben, the manager, who assisted us with deciding on the best level room for our stay. We did upgrade to a deluxe room, and found ourselves on...

This place is straight out of the 80s': popcorn ceilings, old school TV/linens, and the whole place smells like the local herb. SUPER convenient location though, literally ski in/Ski out and just a hundred feet (across the snow) to the main Gondola Square. Young attendants at the front desk were very nice and helpful with restaurant recommendations. Rent your skiis...

I had to book here last minute due to a scheduling snafu with another place I intended to stay. I had eaten at the restaurant in the hotel the year prior while skiing and knew it was convenient to everything. It is ski in and ski out. Literally a stone's throw from the gondola and kids' ski school. This place...

This hotel is pretty outdated, old TVs, mini fridge, but no microwave or other cooking appliances, so other than keeping your wine and cheese chilled, not that useful. The pros: staff is wonderful, helpful, friendly; breakfasts are good, and the location is superb, with ski in - ski out access and ski rental and storage on-site. Plus, our mattress was...

I really do not understand how anyone could rate this place anything higher. Location, staff and small gestures like breakfast and welcome cocktail were great, as were pool and hot tub. Price was reasonable. (It was off-season.) Rooms are EXTREMELY outdated (small, TUBE tv's!!!) and musty smelling, no comforters just old bedspreads. Basement rooms pitiful and you can hear every...
