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.

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.

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 The decor is a bit outdated, as well as the TVs (no flat screens), but for the location, you don't need anything fancy since you should be skiing/mountain biking.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.

Great location very outdated rooms and facility.

The staff was very friendly when I checked in and out. The room was very basic and extremely outdated. Everything from the bedding, decor, bathroom and electronics. The bathroom had a gross bath mat in the shower and there was only a VHS player in the room, that alone should help date the room. I decided to buy my own pillow and a blanket from Walmart to put on the bed during my stay because the pillows and bedding seemed to be decades old as well.

Decent Price and Good Location

This is an average hotel available for a decent price in the summer. There's a free breakfast, but it's very basic.

Decent

No microwave, there is a mini fridge but it's off until you get there and turn it on yourself, broken hair dryer, no CC on TV, and coffee maker with the little envelopes so you can't use your own coffee. Cold continental breakfast - they had fruit which was great. Not bad, pretty clean, little balcony and close to everything but I don't think we'll use the same hotel again.
