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

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

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

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... More
