Location Matters: The Importance of Choosing the Right Hotel

Location matters when you choose your hotel in Steamboat Springs. Picking a central base means convenient enjoyment of popular downtown shops, bars, and restaurants.

Steamboat Springs itself is a superb destination for family-friendly enjoyment in the Colorado Rockies. No matter what season you visit the Yampa Valley, and whether you’ll come for rafting, zip lining, or skiing, or the new Outlaw Mountain Roller Coast, you can’t beat a stay in the walk able town center, right at the stop of a free, city-run bus that takes you to every attraction.

Yet you’re in a riverside location. And you just might be lucky enough to see a moose family walking past your window.

In a town where expensive stays can set you back considerably, why not stay at an attractive cost on the main street? And only five minutes by bus to the skiing base and gondola. Save some money for the great nightlife and dining you’ll enjoy right downtown.

Plus: Guests at the Rabbit Ears Motel are invited to get a discount on the entry passes for Old Town Hot Springs recreation center, just opposite the motel.

One of Colorado's famous and historic hot springs, Old Town Hot Springs is a delight for the whole family. What makes it such a gem? The Heart Spring is where all the healing mineral water originates, and it flows into eight hot soaking pools. And there’s so much more. Old Town Hot Springs offers pools with climbing walls, water slides, professional massage, entertainment and care for the kids, tennis courts and swim lanes, and a workout room with free weights, high-tech fitness equipment, yoga, and classes for all abilities. So don’t miss Old Town Hot Springs while you’re staying here with us. This is not something that people staying elsewhere will have time to do in such a convenient and relaxed way.
