We stopped over one night en route elsewhere as the motel is easy to access from Interstate 90. This was our first proper US motel and was a pleasant surprise. The rooms are clearly a make-over of the original motel room but are well decorated, roomy and surprisingly quiet. The breakfast was very good with home made granola and lots... More

Selected this little motel because they will allow visiting dogs in two of the room. The entire property is very neat and tidy, fresh European vibe shows in details small and large. Color pallet is restful, bedding is first class, flat screen TV, great use of space in the room. Two person shower in the king bed room we had.... More

I stayed at Briarcliff Motel in June and again in August this year. Nothing has changed, it is still the best place to stay when your away from home. The couple that own and run the Motel are so friendly and love to please their guests. The breakfast is to die for. Fresh scones, homemade granola, great coffee and homemade... More

We had a delightful stay at the Briarcliff Motel. It is a bit of Britain in the Berkshires! The owners are most friendly and accommodating. We arrived with me having spilled hot chocolate all over my white pants and the owners offered to wash them in the laundry. The location - in a lovely wooded area of route 7 --... More

Here's a quick rundown of the highlights: Location: Easy drive to downtown Great Barrington and Stockbridge. Hiking: You can literally walk across the road to the Monument Mountain trail. Amazing views! Food: Fantastic breakfast. From the eggs to the baked goods- everything is locally sourced. Value: Before the Briarcliff Motel, lodging for under $250 around GB was limited to two...

The Briarcliff is our go-to, short-stay home in the Berkshires. Incredibly convenient located between Stockbridge and Great Barrington and near Tanglewood, the Briarcliff is a fun retro motel with a '50s vibe. Clare and Richard are wonderful and thoughtful hosts who make their guests feel at home. Breakfasts include delicious homemade scones and muffins every morning. A cross between a... More

We spent a couple of nights at the Briarcliff Motel with another couple. We really enjoy our stay and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We were in town for the races at Limerock, my friends have stay here many times and highly recommend the Motel. We like the grounds and especially the fire pit. The room was very... More

Our daughter who works at Crane Lake Camp in West Stockbridge recommended the Briarcliff and we decided to take a chance! Although it is reminiscent of a 50's style motel we were pleasantly surprised by the room. The owners were wonderful - friendly, helpful and definitely interested in making certain all the guess were happy and taken care of. The... More

We stopped at the Briarcliff Motel in Great Barrington on our way through from north Vermont to Boston for just one night but wished we had stayed longer. The motel has been recently renovated and is simply decorated, fresh, clean and extremely attractive - not to mention comfortable with great beds, free wifi, and a good breakfast. The location itself,... More

What a great idea! Take an otherwise obsolete roadside motel, and turn it into a chic, trendy B&B! I had the pleasure of staying at the Briarcliff on my first night of a cross-country trek, as I moved myself and my two dogs from Boston to Las Vegas, NV. I needed a place to stay in the Berkshires for the... More
