Everything was wonderful last year when we stayed there to go to the Brimfield flea market, so we're going back and have reservations already. It's simple, clean and an easy place to stay. Better to support a family business than a chain any day. Loved to look out on the river and it was an easy drive to the flea... More

A big crew of women traveled together to Brimfield for their fall antique fair, and we stayed at the Copper Lantern. Plain, no-frills, clean rooms for a great deal ($69/room!) twenty minutes from our destination. We were not "wowed" by our rooms, but then again, we were perfectly happy to be there.

Skip the national chains and give this classic motor lodge a try. It will take you back to your childhood road trips with mom & dad, when lunch was a picnic at a roadside rest stop, soft-serve ice cream was a rare treat (instead of an everyday right), and you suffered through without air conditioning in the way-back seat of...

We were just looking for an out of the way place for one night. We definitely found it here. It was nice enough and clean. When we checked in there was a problem with our heat which was immediately corrected. The room was comfortable, with everything we needed. The view of the Quabog River was a nice touch. On the...

Everybody has already said it all, so I'll just reiterate how friendly Jess the manager was: she is the third generation to run this motel (she used to be a lawyer but she went for a job satisfaction upgrade!) and the pride shows. Modern bathrooms, great beds and beautiful bedspreads and curtains.We arrived by bicycle and she did our laundry... More

First, the rating is altogether subjective. It is not based on the "amenities" such as spas, health clubs, indoor pools and heated towel racks, because there are none of those. Nor is it based on "location" in general, because West Brookfield is nice enough, but nowhere I would choose for a vacation. At the same time, if you do find... More

Fished the Quabbin Reservoir last week and stayed at the Copper Lantern. 20 minute drive to gate 43. Clean, spacious room, friendly staff. Very close to both food and gas. Perfect place to stay while fishing the Quabbin. The price is right and so is the location.

I've been meaning to review this place for awhile. We live in the area now, but we stayed here twice prior to moving, and now my parents and in-laws have stayed here on occasion when they were visiting and unable to stay with us (due to illness or an already-crowded house). As far as I know, it's the closest lodging... More
