When looking for lodging in Steamboat, Colorado, there are a few factors to consider. Are you looking for something that is ski-in, ski-out? Or are you willing to stay a bit farther away to save money?

Lodging in Steamboat – Staying at the Base

There are a few ski-in, ski-out places in Steamboat, but for the most part you will have to utilize the free shuttle from the base area to access most of the hotels. If you don’t mind a short walk, there are some great options that, while not ski-in, are still fairly close to the lifts.

Steamboat Grand Lodging Review

We have stayed in a couple of the hotels in Steamboat but particularly liked the Steamboat Grand.

The Steamboat Grand is not ski-in, ski-out, but it is within a very short distance from the mountain. It is directly across the street from the main lifts, so you don’t have to take the shuttle. They also offer free ski and snowboard storage right at the base, which is extremely convenient! That means you don’t have to carrying your equipment to and from the mountain each day.

Parenthood and Passports - Lodging in Steamboat

The accommodations are very nice, comfortable and spacious. It definitely makes it easier for families traveling with young children. Our room had a small, fully-stocked kitchen, double sinks in the bathroom, and a living area. As with most hotels in the United States, they also offer roll-away cribs for families traveling with babies.

The hotel has a great restaurant and bar right off the lobby that serves a wonderful breakfast. If you want something a little less expensive, there are some great places that serve breakfast right at the base of the mountain.

Lodging in Steamboat – Staying in Town

While most people who visit Steamboat stay near the mountain, you can save money by staying in the town. Just a short drive or bus ride from the resort, the town of Steamboat Springs offers a variety of lodging options, as well. This is also a great option if visiting Steamboat during the summer months.
