Reviewed 5 October 2016

We spent 3 nights at the motel and it worked out well. Friendly clean rooms with a refrigerator and microwave. The rooms in the back by the creek would be a great choice but our room toward the back was more quiet as it was away from the street.

Thanks for the nice review! We really appreciate your business and that you took the time to lend feedback. Next visit feel free to ask for a river view room as an option. We do book those upon request. We hope to have you as our guest on your next visit to Steamboat.

Had to call back twice to get an email confirmation when making reservation. Stayed in the oldest part of the motel (2 double beds) because we're on a budget ($99 including tax). Pugnant smell when we opened the door to our room which took about 15 minutes to get used to it. Fortunately it was gone the next morning. Room...

This place was just okay. Actual prices differed from what was posted online. Never a good thing. Rooms are average but clean. Don't even bother with the river views as it isn't worth it. Breakfast included but its fairly basic and always the same each day. Don't expect hot items. Looking around town the other hotels/motels look very shabby, so...

The room was clean and updated with a nice balcony overlooking the creek. Plenty of hot water and towels. Comfortable beds. Well equipped room with mini fridge. Very good suggestions from the desk on places to eat and area information.

Don't let the name of this motel scare you off. It is location, location, location. The motel is neat and clean, has outside balconies, and a friendly staff. The rooms are comfortable and large. The motel has two sections with the balconies overlooking the river which is very nice. The motel is at the one end of Lincoln Street which...

We stayed 3 weekday nights while visiting the area in later-September, with our two dogs. The location was perfect: a very short walk to any of the downtown restaurants, etc., and right on the fine bike/ hike path along the Yampa River. There are even little warm-springs pools in the adjacent river-side park, which was nice because unfortunately, the Old...

Our room was clean and comfortable. Not a bad place for a short stay. Nice location and within easy walking distance to everything you might want or need! Super friendly & accomodating front desk. Convenient to restaurants, grocery and gas. We loved Strawberry Hotsprings!

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
