This is a tired and cheesey inn. The dining is edible at best with huge portions, uninspired menu, uninterested wait staff. The hotel's attempt at being eclectic fails and instead feels more like a flop house or dated dormitory. The internet service works sometimes. The grand porch needs sweeping and cleaning. The gift shop is just plain pathetic. The rooms can be small and filled with cheap junk shop prints so if you find you must stay here opt for a suite.

Room Tip: Opt for a suite. Rooms are small with double beds.

We are always grateful for guest feedback, but find this review to be unusually off-base. Please take the time to read the vast majority of our reviews which reflect the true nature of our property, which is beloved by generations of experienced travelers. We don't aim for perfection, but instead to offer a kind, comfortable and authentic experience in the heart of a historic village and the glorious Berkshire region.

As we were passing through Stockbridge, MA, wasting time before our flight out of Worcester, we had lunch at the Red Lion Inn. What a lovely and beautiful place! Beautiful antique furniture in the few rooms that we saw, antique china teapots. We opted to eat in the Lions Den (pub like) rather than the main dining room. It was so cozy with it's original wooden floors and all the antique memorabilia hanging around the room. We had an excellent lunch. I had the turkey dinner with homemade cranberry sauce, which was delicious as was the entire lunch. My husband had lamb which he enjoyed also. Unfortunately, we did not have time to visit the gardens or the Country Curtains store which I understand was in the back. There is a long beautiful porch out front with white wicker rocking chairs.

We had a floor of one of the houses, on the property of the hotel, the Dorothy and Besse suite. The two rooms, sitting room and two bathrooms provided a lot of space to is and our two daughters. The main hotel and outdoor swimming pool only a few minutes walk from our suite, so that was no issue at all. Every evening before dinner we had a drink on the hotel porch, which is a very attractive feature of the hotel and a memorable moment of our stay.

This ancient hotel exudes charm with its art and artifacts. From floral wall paper to gothic tracery graced by Victorian antiques and old books, this place is caviar to a nostalgia buff. The young staff is helpful and enthusiastic. The restaurant is good and has locally grown products. The town has the Norman Rockwell Museum. Come here for a few days and it is like traveling back in time. Four poster beds are comfortable and you can still watch cable TV and get wifi.

Room Tip: The suites cost more but are very nice. Avoid noisy rooms on the first floor.

Stayed there in June 2014. Loved the history, the staff was very forthcoming with stories of the Inn, and the town. Local shops were very quaint and different. Inn dining is expensive, opted for a local diner instead.
