We stayed at the Briarcliff in early July this summer and it was a wonderful vacation! Clare and Richard are friendly, accommodating hosts with many ideas about local resources. Clare bakes a delicious variety of treats each morning, such as scones and granola, muffins and biscuits as part of the inclusive fresh breakfast spread which also includes locally sourced coffee,...

Noting special. In many ways an old fashion, side of the road motel. But it was clean, well furnished in a 60's style. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was average, at best. But given the price of some of the other places in the area, maybe not so bad.

From the time we reserved our room for a family wedding, Clare and Richard were extremely helpful and pleasant. We needed a dog room for our 12-year-old labradoodle, and they very kindly told us we could leave her in the room during certain wedding festivities so long as they had our cell number so they could reach us. When our... More

Clare and Richard made us feel so welcome and were full of helpful tips on what to see and where to eat. They made calls to be sure places in question were open, lent us chairs for an outdoor performance of "Twelfth Night", and were so helpful and personable. When we said what we liked, they were able to personalize... More

We had a great time at the Briarcliff Motel - it was a perfect combination of comfortable but also stylish and modern. Well located for the area and everything you want would want to get to. The owners, Richard and Clare, are friendly and extremely helpful as well as extremely informative about restaurants and other sites in the area. Definitely... More

Immaculate, attractively decorated and comfortably furnished room. Mattress, bed linens, and quilt give a feel of pure luxury. Lovely gardens, a variety of outdoor seating options, and a fire pit for evening enjoyment. Ample parking close to your door. Breakfasts are delicious, homemade granola, homemade scones and muffins still warm from the oven, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, superb coffee,... More

My best friend and I were in town for a James Taylor concert at Tanglewood. I happened upon this motel on another website and took a chance and booked it. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay! This is truly a gem of a motel. The owners, Richard and Clare, are such warm and wonderful people and really... More

Everything the other visitors are saying is true. This is a wonderful place to stay. The breakfast is tasty; the location is convenient - there's a great brewery down the road; the owners and everyone else who works there are warm and helpful; the room is spacious, clean and comfortable; and the atmosphere is relaxing. We were there for three... More

I have been staying at the Briarcliff a few days a month for the last year and a half. It is my home away from home when I come to the area for work. I bring my little dog and am always greeted warmly by the staff. On my stays, it is easy to settle into the comfy room, enjoy... More

We returned to Briarcliff this summer for two consecutive weekends. Clare and Richard continue to be wonderful hosts, providing fabulous breakfast, wonderful conversation, and excellent rooms at a reasonable (for summer in the Berkshires) price. Great location for Tanglewood and we also visited MASS MoCa and Hudson, NY on our trips. It's quiet and lovely! Book a stay and you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
New English owners Clare & Richard Proctor have turned this classic 1960 motor lodge, with its spectacular view of Monument Mountain, into a cool 21st century b&b. We offer great value, clean comfortable rooms with a stylish edge, free wifi, a home-made breakfast of scones, muffins and granola with locally-roasted coffee, and a warm welcome. Chill out on the deck in summer, or by the stove in our guest lounge in winter. We are five minutes from Great Barrington and Stockbridge, and under 15 from Tanglewood. ... more   less
