I booked a stay at this hotel and on my way to Steamboat I called to confirm. The women on the phone told me that pets were not allowed and we had booked under the impression that they were. So we desperately had to try to find another hotel that evening. I spoke with several different front desk personnel and they assured me their manager would return my call. When I finally got a hold of her she basically blew me off and insulted me. They then charged me double. This happened in February and I am still fighting them, because no one will respond via phone during the crises. This a perfect example of big companies taking advantage of individuals during a horrific time in our country.

Great location on the mountain and friendly staff. There is a restaurant and bar, AND a ski rental shop just down some steps from the front desk. There is a hot tub and pool, and convenient parking. Step out the back door to ski a short distance down the the gondola loading area, or walk down there easily as well. The place has been remodeled recently and some of this was ongoing. One issue with the rooms is the lack of a light switch at the door. There is one just for the entry area and bathroom but you need a flashlight to find your way to the tiny lamp switches scattered around the room when you arrive.

Our family had time! Very affordable for being slope side and the staff were very friendly. You can ski right up to the entrance of the hotel and the hotel will store your skis or snowboard in a locked room for you.

The Ptarmigan Inn deserves 5 stars for being a budget hotel at the base of the Steamboat. It is not fancy, but after the recent renovation, is perfect for what we wanted and needed. It is clean, comfortable, steps from the gondola, and affordable. Please note: Their website does not list a coffee maker in the rooms. Because of this and because we drink coffee first thing each morning, we bought a cheap one at WalMart and took it with us. I would have been very disappointed if we hadn't known this ahead of time and had to have gone to the restaurant each morning to get a cup of coffee.

Very affordable for a slope side stay. The amenities and rooms were nice and the bar and staff were more than accommodating. Eric was our bartender most of our stay and he was absolutely the best. We will be returning!
