We had a wonderful stay at Briarcliff Motel (August 26, 2011). Briarcliff is a great value that delivers on everything promised by their website.
The owners (Richard and Clare) placed us in a room (#9) that was spotless and very well kept. Room furnishings and the bathroom were new and trendy in design. A light continental breakfast came with the room (excellent tea, amazing coffee, fresh muffins, yogurt with granola [the latter is specially prepared by Richard and is very good!]).
We visited Briarcliff because it is conveniently located near Tanglewood in Lenox-Stockbridge, MA. The hotel is reasonably priced for the peak season ($165/night for the specific room we booked; $184.30 with taxes). The hotel is also close to downtown Great Barrington (a cute little town center with an eclectic mix of eateries, shops, etc. and easy public parking) and the more touristy centers of Lee and Stockbridge, MA. Obviously, Briarcliff is also well positioned to accommodate those who want to view the fall foliage.
The owners have been in operation for about year. They have done an amazing job renovating and updating each room of a traditional 1960’s motel. The personal attention provided by Richard and Clare gives this hotel the feel of a B&B.
No question on our end; we recommend the Braircliff Motel to anyone and we look forward to booking our next stay.
- 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
