Hotel is very out of shape: - room smells moldy - fridge not working - airco hanging by a thread - other room had been urinated in - breakfast very poor Young men at front desk trying to maintain professional attitude in chaos. Shame, because setup and location are charming and quiet.

Tanglewood week end. Needed a place to stay near Lenox. There are much better ones if you look harder but needed two beds. Average motel like many in the States. Has been a bit redecorated but still on budget style

It seemed like this was the first time the front desk had worked a hotel. Check-In was complete chaos with many angry people trying to get a room before heading to a concert at Tanglewood. The woman at check in was on the phone with someone stating she was "overwhelmed.... shaking". We were given a key to an occupied room... More

After 2 reservations at nearby hotels cancelled we were unable to find another hotel room for the busy July 4th weekend. We can now understand why this was the only available hotel. The room was unacceptable, ceilings cracked with water stains, bathroom walls marred, as well as stains in the sink, on the bedspreads, and carpet. Security on the door... More

This is the SAME Econolodge, do not be fooled. I waited too long to book a room last summer, and made the same mistake again. Our room had a bedspread from the 1980s. Our room had broken outlets. Only one outlet had electricity. I wasn't able to charge my phone because the charger kept falling out of the outlet. The... More

We stayed here because Tanglewood was less than 3 miles away. The hotel is very dated (1970s?) and due for a total overhaul. Check-in was slow and looked like it was run by the owners. Our room on the 2nd floor had large ceiling patches probably from water leakage from the roof and carpet was stained. But sheets on the... More

My son and I drove here from Newark , Delaware ( over 300 miles) to see a July 4th James Taylor Concert at Tanglewood. The concert was FABULOUS. The Magnuson Hotel is the dirtiest most uncomfortable Hotel stay I have ever had!! The place smelled musty, had peeling wall paper, dirty shower, the plumbing is bad and the entire Hotel... More

Called in advanced for accessible room, was told they all were accessible. Upon arrival, my husband was told we did not only did not request an accessible room, but we were on the second floor, no elevator. That was changed to the first floor. We got to the room over a cracked curb cut, to find the door wide open.... More

Looking forward to seeing Sam. He's a wonderful host. Nice breakfast with waffles, cereal and hard boiled eggs. Good size swimming pool. Convenient to all Berkshire destinations. Recommend highly and has plenty of rooms.
