Timber Inn Motel
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Ludlow
Reviewed 12 March 2013

The Timber Inn is a very clean and accommodating place. It is right down the street from the center of Ludlow and the base of Okemo. I have stayed in the upper rooms that have not been renovated. And since they are slightly outdated and a little dark, it smells like your grandmothers old musty house (and your clothes and hair will smell too). However the room was very clean and the bed was confortable and those are the two things that will make me return. I am a return visitor of many trips. I have yet to stay in the renovated rooms on the lower level. I plan on booking a room on my next trip.

Thanks for your thoughts. Two more upstairs rooms are left for recarpeting. Once that's done it should help with our "grandmother's house" smell. We expect to renovate the remaining four ground floor rooms this summer and should have more to choose from for your next visit.

I put together a weekend trip for a group of friends with the intention of staying in an upscale B&B in town and left the hotel details up to my husband--a traveling sales rep. Arriving in Ludlow we began heading out of town and I finally started to ask questions, so when we pulled up in front of "down and out" style motel I immediately became in touch with my inner witch and started howling, imagining this 60's style motel room with cheesy furniture, low sinks and a musty smell. Well, when we entered the 1st floor room we discovered a tastefully upgraded space complete with granite counters, comfy beds, new carpet, fridge, microwave and plenty of storage. There was also a new hot tub and sauna, both indoors on the second floor, thus missing out on the fabulous views of Okemo Mt :-( Skip the coffee--it was blah, but do visit with their sweet dog, Cosmo. Thanks Glen, we had a great stay!

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms are renovated thanks to flooding from Irene. 2nd floor rooms maintain their rustic c...

Fit for bear when you arrived, we're glad to learn that you enjoyed your stay. The bath room vanities aren't really granite, but still present a quality look. Come and stay with us again anytime.

The newly renovated room inspired a sense of warmth & invitation. The location of the inn is ideal with easy access onto RT103 & great dining within walking distance. It was a pleasure to stay there. I would highly recommend the Timber Inn.

Most rooms are set up with two double beds, but we try to offer great value to solo travelers as well. Thanks again.

Great family-run, local New England small inn/motel. Have stayed here before and again had a great experience. Even better in one of the newly renovated downstairs rooms that had been completely gutted due to Hurricane Irene in 2011. Very tasteful decor and comfy beds, hot tub to soothe those sore muscles after a hard day skiing! Super convenient to Okemo Mtn and great to have free shuttle bus that brings you right to the ticketing area of the mountain. Looking forward to returning again in March!

Looking forward to having you back in March, when the sun shines high in the sky, the days grow long and the corn snow lasts until your legs give out -- and then some. Spring time brings with it sunscreen, BBQs and vast fields of cordoroy every morning on the slopes of Okemo.

We recently spent two nights at the Timber Inn Motel in Ludlow for a ski trip to Okemo. We stayed in a newly renovated room with our two young children. The room was spotless and had high end decor. The comfort of a mini fridge and microwave were great. The inn owner was very accomodating to our needs. Great view of Okemo and close to the mountain. The room was also very quiet and convenient since you park right outside the door. For the price you can't beat it. Great stay!!

We had a great time skiing at Okemo Mtn. and the accomdations at the Timber Inn were perfect for us. There are 5 of us (3 teenagers) total and Glenn (owner) was very helpful in getting us a room that would fit all of us comfortably. The entire first floor was completely re-done after the flood and everything looks great. The room prices were very reasonable and the owner worked with the ski resort to get us a reduced lift ticket package. Very convenient to the mountain as a free shuttle service is available to pick up and drop off right in the parking lot. Would recommend staying here if skiing Okemo and we plan on making this an annual trip in the future.

my family just spent three nights at The Timber Inn and we were quite pleased with it . If you are looking for value without all the extra amenities it is ideal.We stayed in the renovated first floor section which is new and clean and comes with a microwave and very small refridgerator.
Hotel owner Glenn and family are very friendly and accomadating.
In years past we used to stay at the Best western , Ludlow but judging by the reviews it appears to have changed.
I enthusiastically recommend the Timber Inn for a Ludlow stay.
