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

Just stayed at this motel for the blizzard. At 150.00 a night stay away. I will give it a 10 for heat. We had two adjoining rooms, one the heat did not shut off and we had to open the window as it was beyond hot. The other room had only a space heater and even without it it was... More

Since the latest reviews were well over a year ago we thought there might have been some improvements. Well ... Good: Staff very friendly upon arrival. Rooms were spacious. No smell. Bed was okay with firm covers and pillows. Small fridge worked fine. Hot water in the shower and sink. Jacuzzi was working. Wifi worked fine. Coffee machine and available... More

We arrived to a dark empty office. After a minute or two, an employee (owner?) arrived without a smile. By now we had a feeling this wasn't going to be great. We asked to see the 2 rooms first, and we are glad we did. The hallway was narrow, dingy, smelly, dirty carpets, and poorly lit. When we opened the... More
