“wifi was a joke”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

The location of the motel is good, as same as tens other motel along the street.
The cleanliness was ok, but the head board was sticky.
I can hear trucks passing by in the early morning.
The wifi was a joke. None of our smart phones and ipad can maintain a good connection for more than one minute. The stuff was not helpful at all.
I don't understand why the score of this hotel is high. I will definitely try other one if I go there next time.

We only needed a place to stay overnight - late arrival and early departure for skiing. For the price we really couldn't have asked for more. Extremely clean in every respect and quiet in spite of the location on Rt 16. Beds were comfortable, the bathroom clean and just big enough, small refrigerator, chairs and a dresser. The only complaint might be that the heat was set somewhere under 60 when we arrived, which would have been annoying if we hadn't headed out for dinner after setting our bags down. We'll be back...

I was wary of anyplace with the word motel after it but Briarcliff was a great surprise! Super clean rooms, big ad spacious. Flat screen TV in the room. lovely little porch off of the room the overlooked the white moutains, i jut wish the porch was heated! I would have stayed out there longer a minute :) staff was Sooo sweet and friendly! Such a nice lady at the front desk :) will definitely be back.

We came during the Holiday Season and with 10 inches of snow and cold weather you did not take advantage of the great view over the mountains neither the pool. Main road being right in front makes it noisy with trucks passing at night. However staff very friendly and accepted shipping items to the Motel which saved us many precious dollars with online shopping. Very clean rooms and excellent flat panel TV did the job. Just hard to spend quiet time with kids in a small room after a shopping bonanza at Settler's Green. Close to many restaurants so that was helpful since no breakfast is served at the motel. Would we go back? Probably not. Better spend a little bit more and get an indoor pool if it is winter. In the summer it must be much more fun for families!

Room Tip: Room 6 was ok for a family of 4 with two toddlers. With teenagers you need more space!

Thank you for taking time to write a review. We are very sorry you were dipleased with the size of your room. We do have larger rooms that would have accommodated your family of 4 more comfortably. We also have rooms on the backside of the motel so road noise would not be an issue. We wish you would have brought this ti iur attention during your stay.We strive to please all our guest all the time.We hope you will come and stay with us in the Summer months so you can take advantage of all we have to offer like our outdoor heated pool,our large backyard with picnic tables. A short walk to river access and close by is a large children's playground.

The room was a bit small and the decor is dated, but the beds were comfortable and clean. The Internet worked well and I was pleasantly surprised when they upgraded us to a Mountain View room for free. Halfway through our visit the heat broke in our room, but staff was quick to come and show us an alternative heat source. They were pleasant and prompt.

Just returned from another fantastic getaway at the Briarcliff. Wireless internet has been upgraded and we had no problems at all (even with Hurricane Sandy, very few interuptions). It feels great to be treated like family here. Cleanliness is paramount, and Susie is terrific in making sure that all our needs are met. Rates are exceptional, and I love all the coupons and discounts for the restaurants that they make sure we receive. Even free samples of products. Love the new bed linen and drapes. Quiet, and love the screened in porch so much. We had drinks every day, except for one, out there. By mid-afternoon the sun has made it very comfortable and inviting to sit all day. This is our 3rd trip this year, and look forward to coming back again in April. You really do need to give this place a try. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: We absolutely love the upstairs room with the porch. Noise is minimal.
