“Nice Stay, will definately recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

We chose the Yankee Inn as a quick overnight getaway, and selected the king room which overlooked the pond in the rear of the property. The Inn had everything we could have wanted: a fresh clean room, jacuzzi and pool, and a quiet and quaint bar. Halprin's Grub and Grog was within walking distance, so we enjoyed a a quick dinner there at a reasonable price. Overall it was a great getaway to a clean quiet Inn. Will defiitley recommend!

From a guy's perspective, this place had the bare minimum requirements. It's close to an Irish bar (Halpin's with live music), near a Burger King, a CVS, and had a balcony to smoke a cigar. On top of all of that, the rooms are clean, there's a hot tub and pool, and the continental breakfast has a waffle maker.

Now don't think Ritz Carlton, but if you like Hampton (right next door) at a lower price (with ski packages that are reasonable), or Courtyard like amenities at a great price, this is your place.

My wife and I spent a few days over New Years Eve in the Lenox area and were favorably impressed with the Yankee Inn. We stay several times a year and enjoy the new renovations-especially the lobby area. Being a frequent traveler, I come to expect certain amenities and I was not let down. The rooms are always very clean and we are able to get a good nights sleep with the very comfortable bedding. From what I can see, the Toole family is quite committed to their hotel business. The staff has always been very friendly and accommodating. They are providing a comfortable, affordable stay without being trendy. The location is great and they have a very spacious indoor pool with hot tub. We plan to return soon to the Yankee Inn!

My fiance' and I travelled to the Berkshires for quick ski getaway and found Yankee Inn. We stayed in a king bed, fireplace room in the main hotel. The room and hotel was immaculate, we found the breakfast buffet adequate (good coffee, fresh assortment of breads,danishes, and cereals). There are 3 mountains within a 15 minute drive for skiing, hiking, biking. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Overall a great value -- given that the chain hotels are in the same price range (Yankee Inn had more amenities).

As another reviewer noted, there is a hot tub and pool area -- while there were a good number of families with children in the early evening, we found that later in the evening (past 8) we had the hot tub and pool area all to ourselves!

Highly suggest for families and for couples looking for a good central point to a weekend in the mountains.

Room Tip: Try for a room in the main building, otherwise you would have to walk (not far but still a good hund...

My husband and I stayed in a king bed room with a fireplace in the main building. The room was a nice size and appeared to be very clean. There was a private balcony, which I am sure we would have used if it was the summer. The hotel had easy parking and a central location for us. It was not "charming" but rather decorated as if it were a chain hotel. The breakfast was standard but adequate. We were excited to use the hot tub in the pool area, however our first attempt was thwarted by a large group of children playing in it. When returned at an alternate time we were disappointed that it was not hot, but rather luke warm. Overall we would return but not for a romantic weekend. It seemed to us to be better suited to families.

Room Tip: would request main building

We had no specific complaints but there was nothing outstanding about this motel. Our room was in an older building which seemed just a touch shabby. For example, there was a new jacuzzi plopped in the middle of the bedroom but it seemed to be at the expense of the original tub/shower, which could have used caulking. The instructions on the door regarding the lock seemed to pertain to a previous doorknob and lock. It had snowed lightly the night before and the walkways were quite slick. We felt $200 was pricey.

Room Tip: Try asking for newer section, although we didn't see those rooms.

My family and I went to the Yankee Inn from 12/27-12/30 and when we checked in our room was ready and we had two connecting rooms. The staff was very helpful and Leo checked us in and was very professional. The other staff members like Sean was very helpful too. My boys loved the in door pool and the water perfect to swim in. The breakfast was good from 6-10am. Again the staff was very helpful and professional. The Yankee Inn was totally booked and there were many families and it was fun for all. Thank you again for making us feel like a part of the family of the Yankee Inn. See you in the summer.

Dean D.

Room Tip: If you want connecting room us 406 and 408 they double beds but great room
