The Snowbird Restaurant, located slope side at the Ptarmigan Inn, serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and an Aprs Ski Happy Hour during ski season only. Our friendly professional staff uses the finest ingredients available to prepare innovative contemporary cuisine. For breakfast, served from 7:00 am till 11:00 am, our chef will prepare you one of our breakfast specialties served with fresh fruit. Be sure to try the Santa Fe Hash or the Eggs Monterey. We also have more traditional fare like eggs or an omelette served with breakfast potatoes, toast and jelly, and your choice of bacon, sausage or ham. If hotcakes or waffles are more your flavor for breakfast be sure to check out the Breads and Batter section of the breakfast menu. The Steamboat Toast is a favorite, or try the Powdercakes to get you started on those powder mornings.

Nice location, bad staff, run down

The front desk girl was beyond rude. Had attitude when we walked in. Basically made me sign then threw the card keys on the counter. We walked into our room and was unaware there was a large dog in the room next to us who was constantly barking. The cable was not working and apparently hasn't been working and the desk failed to let us know on checkin.

Good location but older hotel

The hotel is in a great location; slopeside near the gondola. The rooms are clean and everything worked as expected, but the hotel is on the older side. The only other complaint is that their WIFI was painfully slow.

Perfectly Adequate

The hotel is in a great location relative to the base of the mountain. It is walkable to a lot of activities and we had a great view of the base area from our room and small balcony. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. It isn't a luxury resort but it is an affordable alternative in a great location. The continental breakfast was heavy on sugary items and the coffee wasn't great. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Overall our experience was fine.

Great small lodge, cozy atmosphere.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Great little bar, nice small diningroom and lobby, all with fireplaces. Loved going out the door and skiing down to the gondola. Good jacuzzi and pool. Friendly and helpfull staff. Only drawback was that it is a bit noisy.(thin walls)

Excellent value for the price.

The hotel was clean and nice. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back again. Our room overlooked the base of the Steamboat ski area.

The dining close by is pricey and mediocre. Take the short drive into downtown Steamboat Springs for a better selection and value.

Stay at Ptarmigan Inn, Steamboat Springs

Great value! Hotel room was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. This is a pet friendly location and they only charge one flat low pet fee for the entire stay, not per night like other hotels. The hotel is located right at the base of the mountain walking distance to the gondola. We traveled in the off season so there was some construction, but not an issue. I highly recommend this hotel and definitely plan on staying there in the future.

Little less than a mile walk to the Yampa River and a very nice bike/walking path that will take you right into downtown.
