The room was very comfortable and clean. The owners were accommodating, friendly and made you feel very welcome. My husband and I will definitely return when in the area.

My friend and I traveled to the Berkshires for the first time this August, and chose the Briarcliff Motel for our home base. The motel was immaculately clean, modernly decorated, very comfortable, and perfect for exploring all of the towns in the Berkshires. The owners were extremely helpful, welcoming, and anticipated our every need. Upon arrival we were provided with maps and excellent restaurant recommendations. When spending a quiet rainy day in with a bottle of wine, the owners even provided us with wine glasses and a list of dvd options. Our every need was anticipated and provided for- I truly couldn't have asked for anything more. We even decided to spend an extra day. Truly, this motel is perfect.

Room Tip: The modern updated twin room was very clean and comfortable.

We took the kids for an overnight trip and stayed at the Briarcliff Motel. We were all very happy and will certainly being going back for a visit this winter. Richard and Clare were lovely and the kids can't wait to slide on their soon to be created winter snow slide. It's a great change from a bed and breakfast and just what we were looking for. A+ from the Harper family!

Room Tip: We stayed in the renovated rooms and were very happy.

My family of four enjoyed our quick stay at the Briarcliff - stopping in for a night on our way to Maine from Nashville. I was looking for a room that fit into our travel budget, but was more charming than a chain hotel. The Briarcliff fit this bill. Claire was more than attentive, literally flying down the stairs of her apartment above the lobby/breakfast room every time we entered it, and meeting our requests for bottled water, extra towels, and a kid friendly breakfast. We had a fantastic chat with her during breakfast ,and took Richard's suggestion to visit the Norman Rockwell museum - which turned out to be one of the highlights of our 3 week vacation. A small detail, but I loved the individual flower vases outside each of the guest rooms.

Stayed: July 2011, travelled with family

... and the price is right, too. Owners really care about one's stay and are there to help out where needed. Breakfast was simple but delicious - great fruit selection and granola. Would definitely stay again if visiting the area in the future.

We spent a great night at the Briarcliff Inn, with friendly hospitality from Richard and Claire. They offer the privacy of a motel with the comfortable, helpful atmosphere of a smart B&B. We'll be back!
