We've stayed at the Village Inn on three occasions and will do so again on our next visit to the Berkshires. The Inn is perfectly located in the heart of the Village with an easy walk to shops and restaurants and a long walk or short drive to Tanglewood. Their rates are very resonable compared to other area inns, it is always clean and comfortable, and the breakfast buffet is fantastic, offering hot food, baked goods, fruit, coffee, and selection of juices. Some guests on this have made negative comments about the age of the Inn and its older decor, but that is part of its appeal. It is traditional old New England inn, but is sufficiently updated to offer all modern necessities without losing it's antique charm. Remember that it is an inn, not a resort or national chain hotel. The only caveat is to avoid Room 1 on the first floor. It is above the stage in the basement bar, and when a band plays, it sounds like they are your bathroom. Now for the best quality of the Inn - it's staff truely cares about its guests and bends over backwards to accomodate your needs make your stay enjoyable. For example, we had the misfotune of staying the aforementioned Room 1 two years ago when a hard rock band was playing. When we brought the noise issue to the attention of the staff, we received a very fair discount on the room rate and a complimentary breakfast. When we booked another stay this year, the manager gave us a complimentary room upgrade and apoligizedf again for our prior inconvenience. It gets better. My wife and I bought a few pounds of shrimp for a picnic with friends at a Tanglewood concert. About an hour before we were going to leave for Tanglewood, we realized the shrimp were uncooked. The manager and chef jumped into action, brought our shimp to the kitchen, cooked them, and returned them to us chilled and on ice. We tried to tip the chef, but he refused the gratuity and said, "I'm happy we could help you - just go enjoy your picnic and the concert." We'll be back again, and again.
