Dining

Snowbird Restaurant & Lounge
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.
Complimentary Continental Breakfast
During summer and fall months, anytime outside of ski season, a complimentary light continental breakfast is offered daily from 7am - 9:30am.

Ptarmigan Inn Review

The staff was very nice and the location was great. There was only one other party in the hotel so it was VERY quite. The room was comfortable and clean.

Weekend in Steamboat

I made the reservation late and got what I believe was the last vacancy at the property. It was a small, dark room, cramped. It appeared that the property had never be renovated. The sink area outside of the bathroom was barely large enough to get my shoulders into. parking was cramped and full. I had to park in a gravel area alongside the building one night. Parking lot was full. TV service was very basic compared to other places I've been. In general, this was the worst room I have ever rented and not a good value for $129.99 per night.

Great Location, Good Value

The hotel is no frills--everything you need, nothing you don't. Has the standard amenities pool, hot tub, etc. It's a great location which adds to the value. The decor is a bit outdated, as well as the TVs (no flat screens), but for the location, you don't need anything fancy since you should be skiing/mountain biking. Great, friendly staff!

There's a Starbucks in the Steamboat Sheraton that's an easy walk (but not well advertised)

Great location...that's about it....

Once we found the place it was what I expected. Older, definitely a ski in/out sorta place at the base of the mountain. Perfect location to access the village, gondola, mountain biking, etc... Check in was easy despite the front desk being high as a kite. A little funny but a little annoying as well. The room was older but clean. My main complaint was how thin the walls were and how noisy the place was. We were by the exit door and everytime the door would shut our door would vibrate. We could hear the annoying kids next to us because of the adjoining room. Super noisy. So be sure not to get one of these rooms. Overpriced IMHO, should be around 80-100 a night. never tried the cold breakfast.

Ptarmigan Inn

The location was perfect! It is located right in the mountain village, just a short walk down the path and you are in the village with restaurants, kid's activities, and the stream. Some of the restaurants have limited hours in the summer, but there are a still a few to choose from for dinner. The rooms are small but clean. The pool is great, especially if you have kids. It was also very convenient to have a refrigerator. We would stay there again!

weekend getaway

The hotel is quite dated with 70's decor. The room was very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful.The location was great. I was concerned that all the doors were accessible without a key during daylight hours.

Convenient location

It had the extra vanity with sink outside the bathroom which made sharing the room very easy. The folding closet door was mirrored but would stick when trying to close it. Everything else was quite adaquate.

Not what was promised

They promise views and balconies and the only view was of the shops and other condos, and the balcony on our room was a tiny lopsided standing room only furnitureless waste of space. The air conditioner was ancient and sputtered off every few minutes and the remote that they taped back together barely functioned. All together it was a disappointing experience.
