Returning from visiting Mount Greylock, this stop absolutely was a positive experience with excellent and funny staff, outstanding food and great atmosphere. Plenty of room and privacy, great large wooden chairs and tables sure glad we stopped there and we will definitely return as well as pass on the word to others to visit the place.

arrived very late - 9:00pm - only one family in the very large facility, but received a friendly greeting by the owner. Server also friendly & chatty. Glancing at menu, seemed expensive for north-western MA. Ordered the $10.99 "giant" shrimp cocktail and when it came was a plate with 6 shrimp of average size, so I sent it back. Dinner... More

Normally you'd drive right by this place, as it's not visually enticing from the highway, but that would be a mistake if you want a place to stay in this neck of the woods. The new owners and staff are really nice people. They are making the effort to refurbish the place after some years of neglect. Our room was... More

Wow! Love this place. The newly decorated rooms are beautiful. Love the location, right next to the French King Bridge and CT river. The restaurant is charming and the food is excellent. The best place to stay in the entire area. Will be staying again when we come back in August. The revitalization of this motel/restaurant is exciting to see.... More

Heading south out of Maine, we encountered no vacancy at any motel, large or small, along the way. We got to Erving at 9 p.m. They kept the restaurant open for just us two. Food and service were terrific! The innkeepers were not quite prepared to reopen the motel after remodeling and refurbishing, and apologized that they couldn't put us... More

I was in Mass visiting family and they suggested we go here. I can see why. Excellent food and service. Beautiful inside and an outside deck if weather permits. The stuffed shrimp was amazing. I can't wait to go back.

While traveling with another couple in the area, they recommended stopping here for an early dinner otherwise we would have kept on driving by. The place does not look very inviting and there were no other cars in the lot. We arrived a few minutes before they opened for dinner but the waitress said we could come in and order... More

This is my second trip to the French King Restaurant. This is the areas best food and price restaurant. My gf had Prime Rib and I had Pot Roast Dinner ( $12.99 ). And it was great. I'll be back again.

Frank is that guy whose family has owned the motor lodge since 1953 and is as much of a local mountain, fishing, jeeping guy as he is a motel and restaurant owner...i have... More

It is a great motel. It is rustic, which matches the surrounding beautiful environment. It is close to a beautiful river gorge and hikes. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you have an issue with anything just ask them. The key to a great stay is communication of anything you want. Need extra blankets, towels? They are there... More
