Let's start with the positive because I would like to see this place improve. It made me feel like it is a good "fixer upper" that just needs some work: New looking, clean bathrooms. New looking and clean wet bar with excellent mini fridge and microwave, plenty of cabinet space. New looking and comfortable sofa bed. Comfortable regular bed. Good location within walking distance to some excellent restaurants (including Aegean Breeze highly recommended). Continental breakfast with waffle-maker included. Very nice staff members. AC/Heating units looked new and worked very well. WIFI was excellent with no password needed. No icky smells.
Now for the negative: The place looks very dumpy from the outside, carpeting appeared old. Some of the furniture was scratched and junky. Weeds mixed in with some beautiful flowers and plants. I felt like I wanted to get in there and do some weeding so the adorable mini roses and other lovely plants were showcased properly. And here is the worst part: We had a suite and there was no other seating besides the sofa bed and desk chair and no table to put anything on. If you want to watch TV and enjoy a snack/beverage it was pretty impossible to do it comfortably. And speaking of the TV, it was one of the old fashioned types, albeit plenty large enough screen and cable worked well. On a related note, the remote control did not work for the TV. We asked for another one and were never brought one that works. No TV in bedroom portion of the suite and no door separating bedroom from living area. The pool looked like it had not been cleaned in a few days.
Overall, MUCH too "casual" and too many flaws for the price we paid ($160 for one bed suite with sofa bed and wet bar). I realize that hotel rooms are very costly in the Great Barrington/Berkshires but I was at least expecting another piece of furniture/table to put something on and a working remote. I would have been OK paying $110-$120 for the clean accommodations but $160 for a room like we had (without a table or additional chair) was just too much no matter what the market will "bear."
I will say that this place has a lot of "potential" and I sincerely hope the owners keep fixing it up. IT looks like they are trying to improve it. I did see some better looking rooms through some open doors as I walked around.
