“Excellent value for area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2012

Basically a motel with large room, which was spotlessly clean and comfortable. It's on a major road, but not excessively noisy at night. Forget breakfast--better to go to Subway next door. Fridge and microwave in room.

It was fine for what we needed after looking at colleges in the area. We lucked out in getting room 210 which is a very large room very similar to a suite. The room was clean. The tv is a tube tv and dated. The breakfast was adequate, muffins, waffles etc. We ate dinner at the Dakota and I wouldn't recommend it, felt like our steaks were very mediocre, the salad bar had frozen veggies that the young staff didn't thaw and my martini was mediocre. I am sure there are better choices in the area. Walls are thin, we heard people on both sides of the walls, however, if you turn on your fan on the airconditioning unit it muffles the sound more.

Room Tip: Room 210 was great! Very large including microwave, could easily have slept 6 so for the three of u...

Good value. Morning manager had an unprofessional attitude. Continental breakfast was below par. Internet in room did not work. Work was done on room next to us at 9 a.m. and made a great deal of noise.

This two-story motel on Route 7/20 is well-maintained and the rooms are comfortable, good-sized and very clean. The continental breakfast included in the room rate is quite adequate. Road noise might be an issue for some travelers, but running the fan (or the a/c in hot weather) blocks it out nicely.

This older motel is maintained in immaculate condition, and has a surprising variety of TV channels. The water pressure was great, the beds were serviceable, and the front desk was friendly and helpful. Yes, the picture on the TV wasn't the clearest, the breakfast was extremely limited, and the walls are a little thin - but really what did you expect for this price and star rating? if I ever needed a place to sleep in the Berkshires, I would definitely come back.

Room Tip: One caveat: you will need to climb stairs if you get a second floor room. There is no elevator.

OK, so full disclosure -- we stayed at this hotel with Wyndham Rewards points free for two nights, so it was good value to start with. My husband, grown son and I came to Lenox for an August wedding, expecting just a place to lay our heads at night. But we were pleasantly surprised to be given a king-size bed, large room with fold-out sofabed and jacuzzi, all spotlessly clean if a little dated. The staff were unfailingly polite and helpful, the location is terrific. What more can you ask? The free breakfast was good, with a dedicated waffle maker on hand. He was a little fussy about how you make the waffles, but that's a reasonable exchange for having someone actually staffing the breakfast room. We will certainly return there if we are in the Lenox area again.
