“Great value - Great location”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

We love this motel! The rooms look like they were recently updated, and the staff is always friendly. We stay here, because it's located across the street from the Old Town Hot Springs, and we walk across to warm up after a day of skiing. The free shuttle to the ski area also stops close to the motel. We can walk to shops and restaurants and can quickly get to the Yampa for tubing in the summer. It's easy to spend more on hotels in Steamboat, but you don't have to. The free breakfast is a bonus! This time, we were even upgraded to a bigger room for free!!! Our 10 year old always wants to stay at Rabbit Ears. AND we get to support a family-owned small business while enjoying a great stay.

Rabbit Ears got good reviews, but I was skeptical, especially when we drove up and saw those huge red rabbit ears standing out like a sore thumb. I worried about having an old fashioned motel experience. Nice surprise though. Our room overlooked the river. The view was beautiful. The room was great. Very comfy, everything worked beautifully. The soaps provided were wonderful. We weren't too crazy about the continental breakfast, but it was healthful, and I have paid more for worse. Next time in Steamboat we will stay at Rabbit Eats Motel. Oh, and it is across the street from the Hot Springs Pool, a very short walk from Natural Foods Grocery, and within easy walking distance of some very passable dining.

Room Tip: I really recommend getting a second floor room looking over the river.

Wanted to stay longer then one day, but the snow was on it's way. The one night stay was rather nice except for a few barking dogs in another room in the morning. Then there were two men having a conversation outside at 2 am about whether one of them was going to start up their motorcycle or car and rev up the motor. Oh well! It was cheaper then lots of places in town that I have stayed at that are closed now. Give it a try!!

I wasn't sure with the pink rabbit ears but the reviews were mostly all good. After I got there I found out that the motel has this name for Rabbit Ears Pass through the mountains. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Also the breakfast was good.

We had to switch motels mid stay. This alternative was a very good one. It is clean, spacious with all modern amenities. They provide a good array of breakfast foods, free wifi and laundry facilities. Great shower everything you could need. They even provide a coffee maker. Would recommend this to anyone.

Good service/quality. Desk clerk provided helpful/info directions for the hot springs and restaurants. Continental breakfast. Souvenirs/gifts for sale. Walking distance for food/shopping. And of course the neon rabbit sign!

I love the sign. Pink neon gets me every time, especially if it's a neon pink bunny. This place is right across the street from the town hot springs, easy walking distance to all the restaurants in downtown, on the river and on the bike path. Who could ask for anything more? The best thing about Steamboat is that it is a real town, not just a resort, and the Rabbit Ears is an important piece of the town. Discount at the hot springs and free breakfast are plusses.

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
