“Great, relaxing Hotel in superb location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Great Location! Hotel was newly renovated. My stayed at Holiday inn Express for 2 nights. Hotel’s room was very clean. Bed was extremely comfortable. High speed internet connection was accessible in room and common area. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Check in and check out was quick and easy . Breakfast was fresh. Will be Back again.

Stayed February 2014, traveled with friends

We were here while passing through in the area. This hotel was convenient and has free parking. The room was very standard, the free breakfast was appreciated but very cheap and poor quality (no fresh cut fruit, the bacon is terrible, all carbs). I would stay here again, but there is nothing in particular that stands out to me that is remarkable about this hotel.

Room Tip: Windows on the ground floor don't open (of course). Not sure about the upper floors.

As frequent visitors to the Berkshires, from our home in Central Massachusetts, I'm surprised we hadn't stayed here before. It's ridiculously convenient for whatever you want to do. Lenox, Great Barrington, Lee, Pittsfield, the whole region just seems to be minutes away.

We checked in and they acknowledge our Platinum Rewards Club and tried to upgrade us; but, we probably already had the best room booked. The thought was there - and the warm chocolate chip cookies in the lobby soothed us anyway. The room was sparkling and the air conditioning was effective and reasonably quiet - not something you always get in the modest hotel properties.

We enjoyed the convenience of fresh coffee brewing in the lobby early in the morning and the complimentary breakfast bar. It's always just enough to get you going and not add an hour's delay to your vacationing while you seek out a breakfast place. Saves time, money and who can complain about that?

Stayed only 1 night in Great Barrington and after all day on the road it was great to have a clean room and a nice and helpful front desk staff. Walked across the street for dinner at the Barrington Brewery and that was very tasty. Breakfast was typical for the Holiday Inn but Franck, the breakfast guy was OUTSTANDING! He saw us sitting on the patio and came out to see if there was anything else we needed before he started closing up. We had a nice chat and he is a great ambassador for Holiday Inn & Great Barrington.

I have stayed here in 2013 and now again in 2014. It is an okay place for the area, the staff has always been helpful and kind. They breakfast is just like any other chain hotel. The rooms need a good deep clean, but then again I am a clean freak.

This Holiday Inn is a great value in every way. It's perfectly situated in Great Barrington. It's right in the middle of town and it's 10 minutes away from Stockbridge and just a little further to Lenox. So you can use this as a base to explore this great area without dropping tons of cash.

The rooms are spotless and the place is well kept overall. Ours had a small microwave and fridge. Even though it's on route 7 the place is quiet.

The pool is a bit small and oddly shaped. It can't accommodate more than a few folks at a time. But there is a nice hot tub.

Breakfast is good but basic. Don't expect it to be cooked to order. It's fine and plentiful.

The best thing about the place is the staff. They couldn't be friendlier or more helpful, especially the breakfast guy Franck.

I stayed at this property with two colleagues. Somehow my reservation was not identical to theirs and I was charged excessively for a Friday night stay, although I did not stay at the hotel. I am a platinum member, was NOT awarded points although I asked for my priority number to be included upon check in. Hotel staff was NOT HELPFUL and refused to reverse the charge for a night I did not stay. Claim they have a 48 hour cancellation policy on the weekends ...BUYER BEWARE! HOTEL WILL RIP YOU OFF!!!!!
