We've stayed in the highest end hotels and resorts in Steamboat Springs over the years, but when traveling with our two sons (7 and 4) this winter, The Ptarmigan Inn provided EXACTLY what we needed. Our goals... to have EASY ACCESS to the ski school and gondola, outdoor pool and hot tub, plus space for our family of four. Our...

Perhaps the planets were misaligned for the 3 days we spent at this property. While the location is ideal for snow sports enthusiasts, the property itself is in dire need of repairs and updating. The first room we were assigned was as far as you could possibly get from the lobby area. The receptionist suggested we carry all our luggage...

We stayed here for one night with our two young children. We were staying three days at a cabin in nearby Clark and decided to come up a day early and stay in town. The Ptarmigan was by far the best value for hotels in Steamboat that I could find with a few days notice (got a good deal through...

This hotel is in a great location, it is right next to the Gondola. While the hotel is outdated, our room was very clean. The staff at the front desk were extremely nice & helpful throughout our entire stay. The pool and hot tub were well maintained. We stayed here during the Wine Festival in the summer & are planning...

Large, clean rooms practically under the gondola at Steamboat Springs! Continental breakfast was mostly carbs but enough to get you going in the morning! Pools were clean but not warm enough to be in while we were there (rainy weather). The Ptarmigan would be ideal during the winter ski season! Summer is great as the summer concerts and restaurants are...

I took my Ball team to the ptarmigan for the second time. We were there for four days and they were so friendly. Also very helpful as they let us have a huge crab boil on the back patio. Nice pool area also.

Fantastic location just across from the gandola (which we took up the mountain for brunch), very helpful front desk personnel. The rest was average or less than average. The Inn is quite outdated, can use a good renovation. Breakfast was much less than average and serviced by a man who did not appear to know what he was doing. There...

Old and tired hotel building in a superb location next to the gondola in steamboat ski area. Rooms are fine for the price, good and soundproof with a decent bathroom. Air con works. Breakfast is poor, with the usual trays of something sticky, donuts and bagels. I guess I was just unlucky to get sour milk. But it makes for...

We had a Groupon, so had a great deal on our stay. It's completely outdated, which added a bit of fun to the experience. We laughed a lot noticing things that have been there as long as we've been alive. It is right at the bottom on the hill and an incredibly easy walk to the Gondola. Our daughter was...

If you like to ski hard all day and have a clean, ski in, ski out place to stay at night - this is it. If you need to be pampered, this is not the hotel for you. For my family of 4 it was awesome. We booked using our Rocky Mountain Super Pass privileges, making the cost super affordable....
