Upon opening the door to our room I knew we had made a bad choice. Overwhelming musty smell, moldy lamp shade and bugs in the bathroom sink. Unidentifiable stains on the walls and a tub that had not been cleaned from the previous guests. Having no other option we stayed the night and I will say the sheets and pillows... More

Nice place to stay. The staff was accommodating to our needs. We arrived late (after 11) and that can be a problem at some places but not here. The lady at front desk was nice and our room was clean. We will stay there again soon!

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The room was very worn and outdated. The television was also outdated.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
