my son and i spent one night here in october. the room was adequate, the beds very comfortable, the walls very thin, the heat very low, the hot water not so hot. we thought the staff was okay; then, at 1130 am, there was a knock on our door. we were told to vacate the room asap or we would... More

The reviews of this place are hilarious, and most of them are spot-on. I’m a 46 year-old business owner, and I’ve been coming to the Bear for about 7 years for an annual ski weekend with a college buddy of mine. The ONLY reason we stay here is for the location – the key bars are within walking distance. If... More

Just visit Happy Bear Motel during Columbus Day weekend. I must say the new owner is keeping the place in real good condition as it looked freshly painted inside out. As always had a great experience with our stay. The location and the price of this hotel has always been the selling points for us.

This no frills motel is a good place to stay on a budget. Keep in mind it is an older hotel and it does show. We needed a place to stay when we cancelled our room with Best Western and the Happy Bear Motel was great about last minute reservations. The area is quaint and comfortable with a number of... More

I`m an avid skier and spend much time at Killington. I`ve stayed at many of the hotels there. I choose the Happy Bear as my regular place. Comfortable and close to everything.

The only good thing about the happy bear motel is the location. the rooms are small and outdated, the breakfast is just cereal milk fruit and juice, and the front desk guy is not very friendly. he yelled at me when I opened the fridge to get milk for the cereal, and when asked if the heat was turned off...

I must say that all the "positive" remarks left on this blog for Happy Bear were either a false concoction or written by folk(s) who have NEVER experienced a quality stay away from home. I can best describe the experience as a stay in a college fraternity house, you know the old decrepit homes that are rundown with those repulsive,... More

At all costs: DO NOT STAY HERE. You are greeted by an office that REEKS of moth balls, so much so that it’s hard to stay in there for more than a minute before you find yourself internally begging the attendant to just hurry up. Finally, checked in and smelling like moth repellant, we enter our assigned room. There are... More
