Where to stay in Steamboat Springs

As with most of the country's ski resorts, room rates increase with proximity to the slopes in Steamboat Springs. Expect to pay the highest rates during the winter holidays, as well as at the peak of the summer season. One of the most economical ways to stay near the slopes is to choose one of the area's inns. These offer every comfort of home at a fraction of the price charged by the big resorts and chain hotels.
