This Hotel my not look the best from the outside, but never judge a book by its cover. The owner went out of his way to make me feel at home, the price was very fair. Room was always very clean and its close to every where I need to be.

Stayed at this motel in July 2012 for 2 nights with my 19-year old son. We were basically looking for an inexpensive but clean place to crash while doing some mountain biking in the area and visiting my daughter who has a summer job nearby. The place isn't much to look at, that's for certain. My wife would have been... More

We ended up not staying because after walking into the rooms, we noticed a good deal of wildlife. Bugs, flies, spiders are not things I prefer to sleep with.. Also, the shower heads are not really shower heads. One room had a tub but the other was a stall. I didn't even want to touch the bed to see if... More

If I was comparing this motel to the Ramada or Crowne Plaza, I would not rate it as highly. However, I stayed on a weekend during the Tanglewood season and saved $100 a night, for a place to sleep! The bed was comfy, the AC worked great on 2 very hot nights, the water pressure was fantastic, the tv had... More

We were looking for a place to stay overnight - it was getting late. So we called them directly - still had available rooms. Original quote was good anyway, but got a discount upon arrival. Super-nice owner, helpful - even brought us a microwave to heat up kids' stuff. Great value for the money - definitely recommended :)

This past weekend myself and three other families went to the berkshires for a horseshow. The minor issues were that the place smelled musty, the beds were rock hard and I found a condom box in the bedside drawer with three children sitting there. The major issues were the fire hazards that developed for one of my friends. I am... More

Have stayed three times over the past three years, visiting my son at camp. I think it has changed ownership in the past year. While nothing terribly wrong, nothing terribly right either, so like I say, it's fine for an overnight, but not for an extended vacation. I felt corners were cut; no alarm clocks, for example. Decor, and bathroom... More
