Affordable and comfortable. This town can break the piggy bank so ask for a room over looking the river and still save yourself a couple of bucks. Simple but hearty continental breakfast included. Comfortable beds and plenty of pillows. There is a bus stop right out front for the free bus that runs every ten minutes throughout the day and...

No frills here just basic clean accommodations with friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed the view over the river with porch. Bed comfortable. Room small side but adequate. Small BR sink area. Great location for downtown. Good temp control in winter. High carb breakfast not my desire but did have a few boiled eggs. Fridge and microwave great as good...

The Rabbit Ears is very affordable and perfect for what we go to Steamboat Springs to do: Snowboard - it's steps away from the free shuttle to and from the mountain. Why deal with the hassle of parking when you can just get on the shuttle and be closer than anyone else when you get dropped off? Use the overnight...

We visited in July of last year, summer time. Very clean and comfy room, beautiful linen, we were there with our teenage daughter and there was plenty of room for the three of us. Our room had a lovely out-look on to a stream and surrounding trees. Very friendly staff, couldn't have been more helpful. Lovely breakfast. Would stay here...

Very simple and small room but it has a pretty decent size refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom shower was very nice and big. There is complementary breakfast and a free bus that takes you to the ski resort or anywhere in town. Great price for the room! Would definitely stay here again.

Basic room but comes with everything you will need including a larger fridge, a microwave, wifi and a refurbished toilet. Simple breakfast was served in the morning as well. The lady at the reception recommended us options for dinner delivery the day we arrived and it was really good. Location right in town and most restaurants are walkable. We saw...

Thanks for the 5 star review. We appreciate your kind words, and are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Those moose are pretty amazing! They live in the neighborhood and are sighted often in town. We hope you'll choose us again on your next visit to Steamboat!

Reviewed 20 December 2016 via mobile

Spent several days here while hunting in the area. We were happy that our dog was welcome. The staff was very friendly, breakfast was simple but ready at 5:00 AM so we could get an early start. The only suggestion that I would add is to have a treat jar for the dogs!

I had been traveling for 6 days in the Colorado Mountains when got to Steamboat Springs. I've stayed at the Rabbit Ears Motel before and remembered it being a comfortable experience, so after my first night in Steamboat at a not so comfy stay, I moved over to the Rabbit Ears. On my trip, in 6 different hotels that I...

I'm very snobbish when it comes to looking for accommodation. I would never pick a Motel. Didn't want to be in the slopes & all private rentals were too expensive.

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
