I have to say from the reviews I was very worried about what we would find; however, it was a good surprise! The place is a classic old motel with old decor, small bathroom but the room was clean (we checked!!) and the location cannot be beat. It is located directly across from the bars and very close to the...

It seems decent enough at first but the hospitality is awful. After a mix up about check up time, the owners moved all of my belongings without permission to their laundry room and threatened to call the cops because I was on the property without permission (I'm 22 and a girl). While I was l was waiting in the lobby,...

After this semester ended, myself and two buddies decided to take a spontaneous trip up to Killington, and when I say spontaneous.. I mean SPONTANEOUS. We weren't prepared what so ever, but we figured we'll figure it out. The three of us squeezed into a BMW coupe (dumb decision) and headed for VT. On the way up we googled motels,...

They offered reasonable rates, close to everything, Free Wi-Fi, Continental Breakfast, A/C and a phone in the room. This is what we got... No A/C, the room stunk! No...

The reviews of this place are hilarious, and most of them are spot-on. I’m a 46 year-old business owner, and I’ve been coming to the Bear for about 7 years for an annual ski weekend with a college buddy of mine. The ONLY reason we stay here is for the location – the key bars are within walking distance. If...

Just visit Happy Bear Motel during Columbus Day weekend. I must say the new owner is keeping the place in real good condition as it looked freshly painted inside out. As always had a great experience with our stay. The location and the price of this hotel has always been the selling points for us.

This no frills motel is a good place to stay on a budget. Keep in mind it is an older hotel and it does show. We needed a place to stay when we cancelled our room with Best Western and the Happy Bear Motel was great about last minute reservations. The area is quaint and comfortable with a number of...
