We stay at Lantern House at least once a year, most often in the summer. We are always welcomed warmly. We appreciate the clean, comfortable rooms and the attractive gardens. The owners have created a good place to stay, return to, and recommend to others.

The owner of this hotel is unbelievably pushy. Even before he got my room keys, he was pressuring me to write a positive review of his place on Trip Advisor. He also didn't want to take my American Express card, even though I had booked with it on Travelocity. He complained that it took too long to get paid by... More

Nice find in Great Barrington, near the downtown. This is owned by a couple who are very proud of their motel, and have been running it for over 13 years. Rooms are large and clean, with a fridge, microwave and TV. No other real amenities, but really not needed for an short motel stay. Large parking area and a quaint... More

Basic, comfortable average-size room. The mattresses were great, we couldn't locate an extra blanket however. Very clean. The owner cleans even the bedspreads. The ac worked super-well, none of that awful dust that accumulates in old poorly-maintained units. The owner seems meticulous in maintaining his property, and it shows. The continental breakfast was pre-packaged fresh bagels and cream cheese, cereals,... More

With daughters having studied at the Tanglewood music program over the years, we stayed at the Lantern House a number of times over a 20 year period, but not for the last few years. Happily I can report the standards of this conveniently situated motel are higher than ever. Rooms seem to have been just totally redone with new furnishings... More

Staff was friendly. Room was basic, bed comfortable, very clean, and well maintained. Breakfast was adequate ,but cost of motel was low. I would definitely stay here again. Overall, this was a nice, low cost, clean place with easy access to tourist activities, restaurants, museums, camping, etc..

I needed to stay overnight as I was attending a Tanglewood concert and it was a long drive for me. A friend recommended had stayed there and had recommended it. So I booked an overnight accommodation. Was greeted by the owner who was extremely cordial and kind. He was very sweet. The room was simple and clean. The air conditioner... More

Basic but good. Clean, quiet, renovated old-school motel rooms with knotty pine, nice management, inexpensive, free wifi, well-located for Great Barrington activities and dining. Salt-water pool was fun for kids.

We stayed only one night as we were in the area to see the Norman Rockwell Museum. Our room was very clean. Beds were comfortable. I love the wood panelling as I feel like I am in a cabin. Also liked that we could choose open windows or air conditioning. Huge back space for kids to play. Pool was nice.... More

This place was wonderful. The owner, Hasu, was most accommodating. The place was clean and smelled good. The sheets were satin striped and crisp and clean. The free breakfast was really nice. I would definitely stay there again.
