We have stayed here every time we ski at Okemo over the last 4 years. Good place to stay if you want to ski all day and just need a place to sleep at night. Rooms are relatively clean and very spacious. There was one time that we did not get hot water in the shower but generally the water...

We stay at Happy Trails regularly - at least four or five times a year. It is a reasonably-priced option for those of us who want a place to sleep in Ludlow without breaking the bank. We've never experienced the problems other visitors have complained of: our rooms have always been clean and the staff has always been friendly. During...

We keep coming back for the convenience to Okemo ski areas, large comfortable rooms, hot tub and affordable rates.

I stayed at the Happy Trails motel a few nights ago during an impromptu ski trip with my 11 year old son. We literally made the reservation 2 days in advance and I figured I was lucky to get a reservation anywhere in town at all (it was New Year's weekend). I can totally see why some people complain about...

Me and my teenage daughter spent 2 nights at this motel during a short ski trip. This was probably one of the worst motels I have ever stayed at. The musty smell from the room got into all our clothes. The room had very outdated furniture and the cleanliness of the bathroom was far from perfect. And the price they...

Spend the extra money on a better place to stay. Creepy, smelly, dirty. There was blood on the wall, a used band aid on the bathroom floor. When we got there, there was urine and toilet paper in the toilet. Floors were creeky and you can hear your neighbors every move. Was not happy with the stay, and next time...

Customer Service: As a previous reviewer mention customer service was lacking, could have been a lack of a common language as both my wife and I got the impression the woman at the desk did not understand us or just didn't care. Cleanliness: I've taveled the world quite extensively and have stayed in some pretty bad places (third world). Happy...

I have stayed at some rundown motels before but this was the worst I have ever seen. We had a late check-in and got there at midnight, the lady at the front desk was mad we came so late. She gave us our key then locked the office and left- I'm asuming she went to bed 'cuz when I saw...

Over all this Motel was in a convenient location to the mountain. However that was the only good thing about it. There was No wireless internet, no weight room, and no HBO. The staff was very grumpy and gave me the feeling they did not like tourists. I happen to be in the Hospitality field and rarely write bad reviews....

Three or four days prior to arrival I booked my reservation at Happy Trails in Ludlow, VT. One full day prior to check-in, I needed to change my plans and I called to cancel my reservation. I was very careful to be polite because I was aware that the management has a 14 day cancellation policy. But I figured I...
