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

Very nice, clean and quite place. It has excellent view. Very friendly staff. VERY reasonably priced for being in a prime location. The location is excellent with ski slopes very near by and eating place right across the street. I went there with my wife and 7 month old son. We stayed there for 4 days and had a great... More

My Husband and I recently spent a week at the Happy Bear Motel and had a wonderful experience. It was our first time visiting Killington and it most definitely won't be our last! The town is beautiful, surrounded by mountains. Don’t mind the name Motel because this is nothing like a cheap motel. Our room was really clean and the... More

Not a Happy Bear … this place is dirty and run down, the kind of place where you wipe your shoes off before leaving to keep the outside clean. Everything was gross ... the walls, floors, bedding, doors … every surface is covered in something. Before staying I checked out the reviews and found some positive and some negative, I... More

Booking: Their web site is outdated and old fashioned, but not a big deal as many inns are like that. However, if offering an online reservation form, it should be monitored. I submitted a reservation, but never heard anything. I had to phone a couple of days later to make the actual reservation. Perhaps they actually do utilize their online... More

The Happy Bear is a quality lodging facility considering the price, It' isn't fancy or super-modern, but everything in our room was very clean. Would I stay here on a romantic getaway with my wife? No. But it was great for weekend getaway with one of the guys. The owners, who work the front desk, are very nice also,
