“Good value for nice motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2010

I had envisioned myself at a lovely B&B but with a baby a motel made more sense. The owner was very friendly and our room was clean, good size and had a very nice bed. Overall a pleasant experience. The only thing that bothered me was the chemical clean smell (like in a taxi) and that the owner wasn't able to recommend a breakfast place. Well, there is one almost across the street, the River Bend cafe with a nice backyard and good, tasty and healthy breakfast!

My husband and I drove from Brooklyn to Great Barrington for a weekend getaway. We were looking for a place that was convenient, affordable and clean ... and the Lantern House Motel met all three. We were very pleased with our stay. The room was comfortable, the bathroom was clean, and the staff was very accomodating. I enjoyed reading my book, one night, in the decorated gazebo. Another night we walked over to a great Mexican Restaurant, Xicohtencatl, and then to Cove Bowling Lanes across the way. We will definitely return.

The Lantern House Motel fails on almost all counts. From the first interaction over the phone I was disappointed by this establishment. The proprietor utilizes less than stellar business practices including not honoring the price for blocks of rooms, random price increases, a $5 fee to split a room charge on two credit cards, and an overcharging of taxes. Beyond shoddy operations, the rooms were extremely dated (think 1967 but not in a good way) with paper thin walls and an odd odor. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable, though the bathroom was quite clean. The location is marginal - too far to walk to town, but close to McDonald's if that's your thing. $150 a night for this dump is outrageous - needless to say, I don't recommend the Lantern House and certainly would never stay there again.

Nice independent motel. Run by a really nice family. Rooms are larger than many, and it gives me a good place to work when I'm traveling in this area on business. I've stayed there about once a month for the last year or so.

We took 2 adjoining rooms for our family of 4 during a leisure hiking trip with 2 young boys (ages 5 & 7). The hotel was clean with many recent renovations that really make a difference in an older, small motel. For example, new bedspreads, comfortable mattress, new shower/tub liners and curtains, medicine cabinets in the bathroom where you can actually put your stuff - seems trivial but there are luxury hotels where the tub/shower are old and there's no room in the bathroom for your things. Location was ideal, next door to yummy donught shop, 2 minute walk to Kmart/McDonalds if you need that type of thing, walk to great Brewery with awesome kids menu, walk to great Mexican, sandwich places etc. Not right in town but close enough. Small swingset. Large yard to kick a ball around safely. Did not use pool but looked nice. Owner Hasu very friendly. Value for dollar CANNOT be beat.

We have been staying here for a long weekend at least once a year for many years. The host is very friendly and helpful, Our trip this year was put "up in the air" due to the uncertainty about how severely Hurricane Earl would effect our coastal home, but the host/ manger resolved everything in a most pleasant manner. Rooms here are ALWAYS very clean and well kept. Lantern House has really become our "second home" when attending events at nearby Lime Rock Park, Both couples and families would be happy staying here.

Had to make an unscheduled "family business" trip to MA from FL that was anything but leisure. The warmth I received from Hasu (owner) when I arrived set the atmosphere for the duration of my stay at The Lantern House. The room was the cleanest I have ever experienced on the road. The proximity to whatever you might need is in either direction from the motel but the motel is nestled from enough back from the road that I didn't hear any traffic noise during the night with the room windows open.

I will stay there on all of my future trips to the area and would highly recommend to get the value of what your money can buy by staying there.
