Unless you are looking for Posh places to stay, this motel is just right. We saw 2 rooms, mostly because I'd read the bad reviews and was skeptical. But it was getting late and I just needed to find a place to sleep. I was pleasantly surprised to see clean rooms, albeit rustic and imperfect to look at aside from... More

Unless you're a fan of shaky wifi, non existent satellite TV, black mold, other people's garbage and half-eaten food, and enough body hair in the bathroom to knit your own shag carpet, do not stay here. Staff refused to honor their listed price on trip advisor until I was walking out the door, and instead tried to inflate the price... More

The room was very worn and outdated. The television was also outdated. The tub and shower were in very bad shape with dirty ripped linoleum in the bathroom. Basically, the accommodations were substandard and I would not stay there ever again.

I feel bad writing this, but I would not stay here again. It would only take a little TLC. Well maybe more than a little. There were stained carpets, stained ceiling tiles & moldy molding. We stayed here at the last minute, for one night. I wish I asked for my money back. Most places wanted 2 night min. I... More

I give Happy Trails 4 stars because for what it is, an economy motel is a ski area, you get what you pay for, which was about $135 on 2/7/14. The motel is 5 minutes from Okemo mountain, and you could easily pay $100 to $300 more depending on what you'd like. You'd get more for the money but if... More

The happy Trails Motel was recommended to us by another motel in Ludlow that had no vacancy so we booked it on their recommendation. Upon pulling into the drive way we were concerned about the unkept grounds. Upon entering the office we found clutter and filth but we proceeded with the check in process. We proceeded to our room after... More

This hotel is really going downhill fast. We have stayed there a few times off-season and it is getting worse each time we go there. The toilets clog up and overflow with just one use, the place is infested with spiders and bugs on the outside of the door into the room and they keep the outside lights on which... More

My wife and I were attending a wedding at Okemo Mountain and while searching for a place to stay the website for The Happy Trails Motel made it look like a decent place to stay. Well upon our arrival we were SHOCKED to see the real Happy Trails Motel. It looked nothing like the website and was a run down... More
