“Decent place, decent price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I stayed at the Hojo express in Lenox for the weekend while in town to attend an event. I must say that I was impressed with, not only the size of my room but also with the amenities. I stayed in a king bed, non smoking room. The room, bed and bathroom were all very clean. The room had a small table and chair that I used for computer work and also had a couch. I was surprised that there was also a small refrigerator. The continental breakfast was somewhat lacking though most are. They tend to focus on the carbs (muffins, waffles, bagels.) There were pieces of fruit and of course coffee, tea and juice. Still, I wasn't staying for the breakfast and it was free so not a big deal. The front counter staff was friendly both upon my arrival and checkout. Overall I enjoyed my stay at this Hojo Express and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Nothing fancy, but is inexpensive and clean. Perfect if you just need a place to rest, put your things down and don't intend to spend much of your time there. Navin the manager went out his way to make sure we were well taken care of. A good place to stay for those on a budget!

Had some business in the courthouse in Pittsfield. Needed two hotel rooms, so price per room was important. Checked TripAdvisor. Found HoJo Express in Lenox only about five miles away. We got two rooms for what I might have expected to pay for one!

We arrived late on a cold rainy day. Walked into room and found the heat was already turned on and it was a very comfortable 72 degrees. (I had to turn it DOWN a couple of degrees in the middle of the night.) Bed was comfy and more than adequate. TV and cable worked fine. Mini-fridge and in-room safe were handy, but we didn't use them. Clean bathroom. Lots of towels overflowing on the rack.

Its not new, its not fancy, but what more could we ask? Nothing. We'll be back again in a few months.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the room for the value we got, the room was spacious, clean and comfortable and the hotel location worked perfectly for our weekend plans. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.

Don't judge by the outside appearance - our Jacuzzi room was very clean, nicely decorated, warm, and we enjoyed our time away from the kiddies. HBO didn't really come in and the internet connection was pretty spotty, but the people were very friendly and made us feel like we were visitors to their home. We had such a relaxing time away from the children that my husband wanted to stay another night. lol This hotel is smack dab in the middle of lots of places to eat, a grocery and clothing store as well as close to both Pittsfield and Lee - where there are malls.

Room Tip: The Jacuzzi room is romantic, full of mirrors and the bed was King sized. We had no heater noise but...
