Absolutely loved our stay here! Staff was helpful and gave us all the additional information we needed for our trip. Will gladly be staying here again when we visit Steamboat Springs! Room was very clean and we loved our little balcony.

Refreshing to stay at a well operated family owned hotel without employee turnover. Rooms were very clean, everything works, comfortable beds, etc. Pro tip: request to stay in a room with a balcony that backs up to the river.

Perfect place for a teenager and his uncle to ski hard, sleep hard, and chill out in between. Right out the front door is the last stop on the express bus route to the ski resort (and the first stop on return) which is perfect. Staff is is friendly and available, but not intrusive. Rabbit Ears, hope you’ll be there another 70 years!
