“Outstanding service in small clean motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We were lucky to find a room here. The proprietor had been fully booked, on account of a church group coming down from Canada via bus. Unfortunately, the bus broke down near the border, and the owner had all empty rooms at the last minute. The tour group might have had to pay for the entire cost of booking the rooms, but he offered instead to charge them only for the rooms he could not let out at the last minute. As luck would have it, he sold out at midnight, so the church group did not owe him anything for their last-minute cancellation, and they rebooked mid-week. He said, "I figured that they were probably good people, doing good work. And when we take care of each other, God takes care of us." I'm a secular person, but that was truly heartwarming.

We stayed in the motel in June for 3 nights, rooms were clean, comfortable with outdoor pool an added bonus. Staff very friendly and professional. I would def recommend this motel and would have no hesitation staying there again.

The motel was an old-fashioned-no breakfast and small room,but the furniture sas updated, and the bathroom looked as if it was just remodeled. Everything from fhe walls, floors shower stall, toilet and sink. Very clean. Pleasant owner.

We were very pleased with our experience at this motel. I neither expected nor wanted a four star hotel - this was a very clean basic place with several lovely features. It's beautifully situated against a wooded hillside - we had a window both front and back and thus had a view of those woods. The room itself is much larger than many budget motels. The beds were very comfortable with an individual lamp for each. And the owner is an extremely friendly person who seems more like your host than a manager - and he clearly takes pride in his business. There were two things the room lacked that some people care about: one is a hair dryer, the other a coffee maker. I would definitely go back, and recommend it to others.

We were very appreciative of the service . Extra pillows and very comfortable bed was much appreciated . It is an older motel and does have a very musty odor especially when it rains . I would highly recommend replacing the old carpeting as I am sure that is a culprit for the mustiness . Good shower much appreciated . The price is definitely right for the Berkshires during a holiday week . We would stay again .

I'm an AT thru hiker. This place was listed in my guide as one of several locations to stay in the area. I found the property and room to be basic but clean and comfortable. I found the owner to be incredibly accommodating and even provided a shuttle back to the trailhead. Very nice guy. I would most definitely recommend this to others.

Great Barrington is a small nice town in the middle of nowhere and motel is actually far from town centre (ie not walking distance). Rooms are simple, clean but definitely expensive for its worth. Service is nice and friendly, wifi works well. I am rating such a low value because of the price paid.
