Reviewed 18 August 2017 via mobile

We stayed one night on our way thru Colorado. It was a bit hard to find, but certainly offered a clean comfortable room for the night. The staff were pleasant, but our room wasn't easy to get to....thru a gait, down a ramp, past the pool and onto a lower level room. The facility is a bit outdated and the breakfast bar was a cold bar, but there were plenty of offerings to choose from.

I don't normally write hotel reviews but feel compelled to share with other travelers my very bad experience at The Ptarmigan Inn. I requested a late check out on our final day at the hotel and was told I would be charged $94 to stay an additional hour. Hotel checkout is at 11 AM, I was requesting a noon check out. When I asked why, The front desk person 'DJ' said that they were busy and needed the room. I understand that hotels get busy and need to do a quick turnover, but I found the $94 charge to be unreasonable. To give some context, we paid $217 per night at this hotel which is quite old, with small outdated rooms. They were charging a premium because we were in town for a soccer tournament.
Additionally, the hotel breakfast is one of the worst I've ever seen and should be called the refined sugar bar, there was no offering of a proteins such as eggs, our choices were sugary cereal, mini cinnamon buns, donuts and plain white bagels.
The cheapness of the hotel continued with the shampoo and soap in the room, the toilet paper, whatever amenity you can imagine, imagine the poorest quality you can find. I will certainly not be staying at this hotel and would caution other travelers to know exactly what they are getting into if they choose to stay here. For the prices this hotel is charging, they should be offering much better service and amenities. The hotels best quality is its location, it is at the base of the gondola at steamboat.

Stayed here 17 years ago and sadly no change. Needs updating terribly. Staff very nice. Pool nice. Breakfast very meager. Only OJ for juice. No eggs (not even hard boiled), no meat, all sugar carbs! Great location for walking to outdoor concerts and for biking to balloon rodeo.

Toilet didn't flush, beer in the bottom of trash cans from the people who stayed before us. Crappy breakfast, really a dump. Wi-Fi just spinned around, couldn't connect. Shower trickled water as it rushed out of the faucet below. We were told the room had been remodeled.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

Dated decor so if that bothers you, look elsewhere. Otherwise, it's very clean and staff are friendly. The outdoor pool and hot tub area is pleasant and pool heated. Easy walk to the gondola area. If you like relaxed places that aren't gentrified yet and are a little kitschy, you'll like it.
