The view from one's room at Whitcomb Summit Inn really IS as beautiful as the pictures make it. Sunrise is truly stunning.
It's definitely an older motel -- I wouldn't really call it a hotel -- and the gravel parking lot can get muddy when wet. Like the rest of the facilities, the rooms, their furnishings, TV, and towels are a bit worn and showing their age; however, the owners keep everything impeccably clean, so you can definitely sense pride of ownership.
This motel is a spectacular value for larger groups travelling through the Berkshires. Instead of renting 3 rooms in a B&B, rent Whitcomb's 6-person room, store breakfast fixings in your in-room fridge, and enjoy your in-room breakfast in front of the window. Lovely!
Lastly, my attempts to make a (high maintenance) last-minute reservation with Carol was met with promptness and friendliness. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
