“Excellent Motel at a Great Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Arriving at the Lantern House Motel on a cold night after a long day of skiing, I met the proprietor as he was emerging from my reserved room: he had gone there to check the heat to make sure my accommodations would be warm enough for me. That's typical of this inexpensive and well-maintained motel. It is a great bargain for anyone staying in the Berkshires, and convenient to outdoor sports all year round. Highly recommended.

Stayed January 2015, traveled solo

Ordinarily I'd be leery of a one-story motel where you park your car right outside the door to your room. But this place is clean, modern and easy, and has to be the greatest deal around. You could cross the street to pay more for a hotel, but why? The owner/manager here is very helpful, and the rooms are simple, quiet and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but it had everything we wanted -- wifi, nice TV, mini-fridge, etc. We've stayed here once in the summer and once in the winter, and both times it was comfortable -- you can adjust the heat yourself easily. Not much in the way of breakfast, but a great donut shop is right next door, and you're right on Rte 7 so everything's conveniently located.

My daughter and I just had a lovely stay at the Lantern House Motel. Comfortable beds, crisp white cotton linens, and clean accommodations. Wood panelling made the room feel like a cabin. The owner is pleasant and accommodating. And to top it off, the best donut shop in western Mass is right next door!

Never under estimate the term motel for being dirty or out dated . This motel was cleaner then most hotels I've ever been in with the exception of my wedding . Overly friendly staff, exceptionally clean room and very home like atmosphere . We loved the experience at this motel and it's less then 5 min to ski butternut and 15 min from catamount . You won't be disappointed .

The owner was accommodating to our late arrival and the room was great. So nice to stay in a clean and truly non-smoking place. The room was nice and cozy and warm in such a cold week. Would stay here again when we come up to visit our daughter at college.

I couldn't ask for much more. We were warmly welcomed by the owner of this cute motel near the center of Great Barrington. The room was cozy, clean and a comfortable shelter from the snowstorm. It's a short drive to Ski Butternut, about 15 minutes to Catamount and only a mile or so from the center of Great Barrington's restaurant's and shops. Stop in at Lantern House on your next trip to the Berkshires!
