Lantern House Motel Great Barrington
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Great Barrington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed our stay. The owner is on site and provides all that you request. Beautiful pool area... No chlorine... a salt pool.
We will return to the Lantern again. Within one mile you can choose from 20 restaurants and many shops.
There is the Mahaiwe theatre nearby and the triplex movie house. Main street of Great Barrington is around the corner.

I recently made a return visit to the Lantern House, where I have stayed for many years during May and October. During each visit I see the upgrades the owners have made to the property since my previous visit. I have stayed in couple of different rooms on the property, ranging from a single room with a King bed to a room with double queen beds. Each was room very clean and comfortable with clean sheets, comfortable pillows, and an updated bathroom. The beds are most comfortable! On a value per dollar basis, the Lantern House is easily the best value in the Berkshires!

We have visited this motel for the past 5 years whenever we are in the Berkshires! We have been there in season and off seasons as well! It is always immaculate and the owner is most accomodating and very knowledgeable regarding the various attractions in the area! try it out the next time you are in the Berkshires! You will find yourself returning again and again as we have done. Our last visits were August of 2013 and December of 2013!It's time to start planning our next visit! TRY it out and you too will become Lantern House regulars!!

Our family recently stayed for a return visit to the Lantern House. I was pleasantly surprised on both stays with the passion and care the owners put into the property. This is a motel beyond others I have stayed at anywhere in the country. Before arrival, I was asked what temperature I would like the room to be at upon our arrival. This is not a typical question asked by motel staff! Aside from the friendly and hospitable atmosphere, the property is also well-maintained. We stayed in the same room each time, but it was very clean and comfortable. The beds were also beyond "motel quality." Cleans sheets, comfortable pillows, and a bathroom that was inviting rather than producing a "cringe factor." I spoke with the owner briefly, and he was happy to share his current plans and ideas. It's clear he invests a lot of money and time into the property. It is admirable, and has certainly own us over.

While breakfast offerings are simple, it's included, and also fresh. Coffee, milk, orange juice, cereal, and usually a pastry offering (last time they had bagels with cream cheese). I don't think I've ever experienced such offerings in a motel before.

I hate to share such a secret, but in all honesty they deserve even more business. It's a comfortable stay for a family of four, and we look forward to our next visit!

With two decades of enjoying the glamor of business travel, I've seen a lot of bright lights, big cities, and business hotels. On a value per dollar basis, the Lantern House is easily tops. Great all around. Grab a bottle of wine and a 10 inch pizza from down the street; it doesn't get any better before or after a day of skiing at Butternut, which is a gem of a mountain.

We decided to drive up to Great Barrington on a whim and didn't want to pay an exorbitant amount of money for the 8 hours we'd be there. Driving through town, we passed the Lantern House Motel and decided to stop in. The owner was so pleasant and helpful, and it was refreshing to find someone who was so passionate about his business and proud of his establishment. Hasu personally showed us to our room, while telling us about all of the positive changes he'd made in recent years. Our room was immaculate and well appointed, and as suggested by Hasu, the bed was insanely comfortable. The location is very convenient to the mountain and close to the downtown area. I would definitely recommend the Lantern House to anyone looking for an affordable and comfortable stay in GB!

Room Tip: definitely go for the King suites

We (family of four) have stayed in this motel every Saturday night for the last two months because we skied at Butternut this winter. We wanted a place that was nice, clean and would not break the bank, and this what this motel delivers. The motel is very conveniently located only minutes from downtown Great Barrington and Butternut. There are also a good number of restaurants within half a mile from it. We've recommended this motel to other friends who are looking for solid accommodations at a reasonable price in the area. As far as I'm concerned I would not even try to stay across the street at the Comfort Inn for double the price for the same type of conditions.

We have stayed in several rooms with two queen beds, and the quality and cleanliness has been consistent week after week. The rooms are plain but pleasantly appointed, and the bathrooms are well updated and impeccably clean. Each of these rooms had two queen beds a large dresser, a wardrobe to hang things, a TV cabinet with more drawers and a round table with two chairs. There was plenty of room to move around for all four of us. The shower has nice water pressure and we've often soaked in a tub of hot water at the end of our day. I also enjoy having a mini fridge in the room because I can store any food leftovers from dinner and take with us as kids' lunches the next day on the slopes. The place has free wi-fi so my kids were happy as clams to play their apple devices in the room. There is a breakfast room where there is coffee and hot water and tea, a well as milk in the fridge. There is also an always fresh selection of cold breakfast items of bagels with cream cheese, cereal, and muffins.

This is a family owned motel and not part of a group as some of the surrounding places. The owner Hasu has been very friendly and accommodating all these weeks. It shows that he wants his visitors to have a pleasant stay.
