I was in Steamboat Springs for a weekend conference at the Steamboat Sheraton. The Sheraton was booked solid for the weekend, so I searched nearby hotels and found the Ptarmigan Inn. It had received good ratings, was less than half a mile from my destination, and appeared to be clean and a great value. My stay was effortless, though I underestimated the tax rate in this resort town (that was my issue, not the hotel's). Lodgings were clean, price was right, stay was great.
Here's the EXTRA GREATNESS: I lost my watch somewhere while on this trip. It was a gift, and I was crushed when I realized it was missing. I called the Ptarmigan Inn and left a message for housekeeping, just in case, then tried to just accept that the watch was probably gone forever. A few weeks later I received a call from the hotel, letting me know that they had found my watch BEHIND THE DRESSER!! WHOA!! They were able to send that watch to me - I happily paid for postage. This was an above-and-beyond effort, as far as I am concerned, and secured my loyalty for any future stays in Steamboat. AWESOME.
If you're just looking for a nice room to stay in and don't want to pay all the resort fees/facilities that you never use, then this is probably one of the best values in Steamboat. The room is decent size and very clean. The staff is pleasant and accommodating. We loved the fact that the hotel is right on the Yampa trail. So while it is on the outskirts of downtown Steamboat, we were able to hop on our bikes and access the trail without driving anywhere. My only complaint is the musty smell in the hallway that seemed to seep into the room as well. However, we took care of that easily by opening the windows and then turning the heater low to keep the room warm. Also, the breakfast could be improved by providing some fresh fruits.
Very clean. Staff in all areas was friendly and very helpful since we has never been to Steamboat before. Breakfast was good. The young woman working the breakfast was outstanding. Very pleased with our stay and this facility.
Steamboat is always so beautiful! You can never go wrong there. We enjoyed Strawberry Park (1st timers), a river festival, Steamboat and Pearl lakes, great food, shopping and relaxation. My favorite place in the world!

This resort is 1 mile from the Steamboat Ski Area and within 3 miles of downtown Steamboat Springs and Haymaker Golf …More
The location is awesome. My daughter and I had a great stay with the hotel and the continental breakfast was one of the best I had with a lot of options on pastries and cereals. Definitely plan on staying there again :)
Great Customer Service, the front desk is was very helpful. We arrived early before check in time tired and sleepy from a long drive, the front desk clerk checked if a room was available and was able to check us in early. We were so pleased to get a few hours of sleep in before exploring the town. The rooms were clean comfortable, quiet and nice view of the mountains. This hotel is great has a clean pool and hot tub, if you run out of snacks or shampoo or forgot something the little store next to the front desk has you covered. Would recommend this hotel to any visitor of Steamboat.
