A one-night stay was enough to make me want to return to GB for a return visit to the Briarcliff. The rooms are spacious and airy, large comfortable beds, and charmingly appointed. I said to my husband as we were getting settled that if we owned a motel, this is what I would want it to be. The owners were... More

Travelled in New England for three weeks mostly in hotels. The Briarcliff was a welcome break offering great value motel accommodation. Really nice breakfast. Spacious and comfortable room. Recommended

The Briarcliff was a perfect respite after a 10 hour drive from VA en route to Maine! We enjoyed a picnic (Manhattan Pizza delivered) by the firepit with our pups, while our 3 year old was able to run and play. The firepit and beautifully landscaped front lawn (loved the lit trees!) was such a nice touch. The staff was... More

Such nice folks who own the place - and they helped us out with a complicated scheduling bind we were in (and we are very grateful!). Funky details in the rooms, very comfortable beds, quiet, amazing use of space. SUPER clean!! Surprised to have a nice-sized fridge in our room. And a lovely breakfast in the awesome common area. Great... More

Did a girlfriends weekend in western Mass. How lucky we were to find the Briarcliff! Cool and charming all in one. Great job of making a vintage motel really hip! Breakfast was lovely, innkeepers divine. Rooms really nicely updated and a luscious fire pit too! Thanks for a great stay!

My girlfriend and I had to visit the area for reasons of visiting a local medical facility for my son. Atlhough it was a difficult trip emotionally, the owners made us feel very welcome and offered great local tips. The decor is so great, and the owner so accommodating in sharing her decorating and shopping tips. The firepit is the... More

After spending the past 10 summers in Stockbridge I decided to switch to the Briarcliff after driving by for the past two years. We were not disappointed. Clean comfortable rooms and Claire & Richard are the best hosts in the Berkshires. Located right on Route 7 accross from Monument Mountain State Park the Briarcliffe is centrally located between Great Barrington,... More

We stayed as a family: parents, two teenagers plus the dog, and all are in agreement!: Briarcliff Motel is a breath of fresh air: bright, simple, super clean rooms, each individually decorated with some personal touch, comfortable beds, powerful showers. The service is excellent, a light but good quality breakfast awaits you early in the day. The owners/managers were extremely... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights here over Memorial Day weekend. As a Trip Advisor believer, I chose the #1 hotel in Great Barrington, and the Briarcliff delivered. It's definitely a different experience than your typical B&B, and for us it was perfect. The location is great...close to all the places you'd want to visit in the Berkshires. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
New English owners Clare & Richard Proctor have turned this classic 1960 motor lodge, with its spectacular view of Monument Mountain, into a cool 21st century b&b. We offer great value, clean comfortable rooms with a stylish edge, free wifi, a home-made breakfast of scones, muffins and granola with locally-roasted coffee, and a warm welcome. Chill out on the deck in summer, or by the stove in our guest lounge in winter. We are five minutes from Great Barrington and Stockbridge, and under 15 from Tanglewood. ... more   less
