“Basic and Clean”
Reviewed January 23, 2007

This is a basic motel, cheap (compared to it's competition around ludlow), and a mile or two from Okemo's entrance. It is just outside the town of Ludlow. We stayed there because it's one of the VERY few places around ludlow that will let you book for just one night of the weekend during ski season (most other places require friday/saturday stay). The room was very warm and temps easily controlled. Room had a fridge and coffee maker. Plenty of room for all our ski gear (and skis too). If you only need a basic, cheap, and clean motel (with no services like a restaurant) this place is fine. We are used to staying at very nice places (think Fairmonts), but are ski racers and check out by 7 in the morning, and thus just need a room to sleep and nothing else. This was fine for our purpose.

This was the only motel left that we could get a reservation. I had read the review that it wasn't a great place to stay, but figured we would try it since it was the only place left. Our experience was that we had a very enjoyable time. The receptionist was very nice, we had two rooms and both were very clean and we in fact turned on the air as it was quite warm - no problem with heat and we had good hot water to shower with. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Very convenient for sightseeing, also.

I though this was a very comfortable motel for the price with good-sized rooms and lovely views. We certainly didn't have any problems with the heat as the reviewer below did and found the owners friendly.

We arrived at the hotel at 12:45 a.m. and checked in to a room that was freezing cold. My 10 year old daugher slept in her coat. The room did not warm up until 4:00a.m. It reminded me of a 1950's motel. We affectionatetly referred to it as the Bates Motel. We checked out at 7:30 a.m. and could not wait to get out of there. We were charged $138 for that room.
I would never recommend it.
