Our stay at Briarcliff Motel was wonderful. We stayed just over the weekend and enjoyed everything from the room to the breakfast and lounge area. The location is perfect as well. Clare and Richard could not be more lovely. They are very friendly and warm, and made us feel very welcome. The Briarcliff feels more like visiting friends in the... More

What a wonderfully cozy motel! The vintage feel, delicious breakfasts, and kid-friendly environment make this our go-to place to stay in the Berkshires.

We have just stayed at the Briarcliff for perhaps the 5th or 6th time and we keep coming back because we always have such a wonderful stay. The Briarcliff is a motel, but unlike any other. It's welcoming, hip, aesthetically pleasing, meticulously maintained, and comfortable. All rooms have the conveniences you'd expect from high-quality accommodations - AC, nice bath products,...

A contemporary twist on a bed and breakfast in a retro motel setting. The Briarcliff has clean and updated rooms, and is conveniently located to hiking, restaurants and cultural activities. Breakfast in the morning is homemade, healthy and sourced locally. Hosts Clare and Richard go out of their way to be helpful and make you feel welcome. Highly recommended... I... 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
