Stayed here on a Saturday night with a bunch of friends while skiing. The rooms had a strange odor when we first walked into the rooms but later on went away. This place is located across the street from Pickle Barrel and next to a great restaurant (Garlic). The so called "continental breakfast" at this place is a joke. Packaged... More

We were on a white week right on new year's and decided to focus on location, therefore decided to go to the Happy Bear. It was a great surprise to find out that not only the location was really great (walking distance to many restaurants, bars and nightlife and less than 3 min drive to the mountain) but also the...

I have to say from the reviews I was very worried about what we would find; however, it was a good surprise! The place is a classic old motel with old decor, small bathroom but the room was clean (we checked!!) and the location cannot be beat. It is located directly across from the bars and very close to the... More

It seems decent enough at first but the hospitality is awful. After a mix up about check up time, the owners moved all of my belongings without permission to their laundry room and threatened to call the cops because I was on the property without permission (I'm 22 and a girl). While I was l was waiting in the lobby,... More

After this semester ended, myself and two buddies decided to take a spontaneous trip up to Killington, and when I say spontaneous.. I mean SPONTANEOUS. We weren't prepared what so ever, but we figured we'll figure it out. The three of us squeezed into a BMW coupe (dumb decision) and headed for VT. On the way up we googled motels,... More

They offered reasonable rates, close to everything, Free Wi-Fi, Continental Breakfast, A/C and a phone in the room. This is what we got... No A/C, the room stunk! No... 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
