“Nice and clean!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed here a night last week traveling for business. So, this place is an older motel-style establishment, with the front doors directly leading outside. I have stayed in the Berkshires plenty of times, and this is typical for the area. There are some newer chain hotels popping up, but this is the norm. I will say I had moderate expectations, but Yankee Inn surprised me. For its age, the place was well kept. Clean room, clean bathroom, clean sheets. Room had a fridge/microwave, desk, tv, queen bed, bathroom and was plenty adequate for a night. Lobby was nicely remodeled (I think?). WIFI was faster than chain hotels I'm used to. Did not experience breakfast. Check in and out was a breeze.
My only complaint was this hotel seems to cater to some work crews. There was a sign out front advertising a special rate. Well, I checked in at 9pm and there was a crew hanging out outside, drinking. A bit loud. Not a huge deal, but then they all seemed to be up at 5:30am, yelling, and walking around right outside the room. Not the hotels fault, but something to consider. Other than that, I would stay again if in the area.

Stayed here one night, before my program at Kripalu. Great location, about 10 minutes away from a pizza place that serves vegan pies.

The hotel is very cozy and feels like a New England home. Front desk was very nice and helpful. The room was equipped with a small fridge, large TV, and a sliding glass door that leads to a small patio. Wonderful view of the mountains. Great value, will stay here again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay at this hotel. Room was exactly as it was portrayed in the picture that was shown on the website. The room and facilities were very clean. Grounds are well kept. Loved the homey touches like being able to get hot coffee and tea 24 hours a day. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Look forward to returning.

Compared to other nice hotels in the area this was the best value I could find. Our room was clean, well equipped and the staff was very helpful. They even saved the day with a free toothbrush! Our room fee included a FREE breakfast which included made to order eggs along with the extensive continental breakfast.

My daughter and I did a weekend program at Kripalu and decided to stay off-site due to the overpriced accommodations there. Our stay at the Yankee inn was just perfect. An easy 8 min drive away, we found the Yankee Inn very comfortable and the staff exceptionally warm and welcoming. The cookies at check in was a fun surprise for my 11 yr. old after a long 3 hour drive, and the little touches in the room were much appreciated, particularly the leg pillows and the shower caps, which we had forgotten. It was so much better than staying at a chain hotel, and the non smoking policy throughout the ENTIRE facility was also appreciated because even though we always request a non smoking room, we often find that our room still smells like someone smoked there. Our room was quaint and homey and the beds were very comfortable. We will stay there again when we return to the Berkshires.
Thank you!

We enjoyed our 3 days at the Yankee Inn and couldn’t find a
complaint if we wanted to. Everything was so clean and fresh
and staff was excellent. Wi Fi was the fastest in any motel
we have ever stayed at. A very comfortable inn.

We stayed at the Yankee Inn 25 years ago for our 25th
wedding anniversary and returned last week to celebrate
our 50th.

We plan to return again in the Fall.

Perfect place to stay.
