We often find ourselves in the Berkshires over the summer and over the February break. We've stayed at really nice places like the Red Lion Inn and more budget- minded places too. This is our first time at the Briarcliff Motel, but I don't think it will be our last time.
We stayed in Room 8, right near the lobby. My daughter didn't like that there was no clock in the room, but she didn't tell us that until after we'd left. That's our only 'complaint.' We'll bring a travel clock next time.
The bed was luxurious, the chairs in the room were very comfy and neat looking, the room was spacious well decorated and my daughter loved the design on the comforter on her rollaway.
The breakfast is everything everybody else is saying: great scones, wonderful pumpkin bread, my husband said the granola was special, too. And very, very good coffee.
The owners and staff couldn't have been nicer: suggesting restaurants, asking about the play we saw: "Private Lives" at Shakespeare & Co, it was great!, making sure breakfast was good, wifi issues, which turned out to be operator- related.
It was a real treat to stay here.
