“good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and pleasant, with wood paneled walls. It's a throwback to the fifties, and a good value at a location right outside of Great Barrington's pleasant and extensive downtown. For the money, I think it can't be beaten.

Lantern House is a cheery and well-maintained traditional motel property in an outstanding location, one mile north of the in-town shops and restaurants of Great Barrington, MA in the Berkshire Mountains, and just minutes south of the top cultural attractions in Berkshire County (symphony and pops concerts, plays, dance, museums, historic homes, and gardens galore). While very quiet at night -- backing onto a wooded area with a clean, salt-water pool and well-kept playground --you can walk to a homey doughnut shop, a supermarket, a superb bookstore, and a McDonald's in five minutes or less. Rooms vary in size; all are clean and well-equipped, and the original (main) section of the motel has classic knotty-pine-paneled rooms. Ownership/management is extremely attentive and incredibly consicentious about returning calls and keeping customers updated on cancellations and flexible rates. While not offering the charm of one of the Berkshires' many true "bed and breakfast" historic inns, it's a lot cheaper, and just minutes away from those properties. It's also a lot cheaper than the newer and more upscale Comfort Inn Hotel just across the road; unless you need an indoor pool/whirlpool and a lobby such as those available at the new hotel, check out the Lantern House Motel for a more affordable alternative that will always deliver on its promises.

Great value given the location, cleanliness of rooms, amenities (Wi-Fi, salt water pool, in-room fridges) and the friendly owners. My wife and I stayed there recently while on a week long motorcycle vacation. Overnight thunderstorms meant I had to dry off the bike in the morning. When I stepped out of the room I found a towel left on the bike by the owner Hasu - very thoughtful. Location is within walking distance of many restaurants.

We use to use this motel for skiing at Butternut. Believe it or not it is better today and better value then the comfort suites across the street. Rooms are clean and nicely taken care of. Still a good place for obe or two nights. I would also recommend the Four Brother Pizza inn down the block for dinner. Towels could be of thicker quality.

My wife and I stayed there during our recent Berkshires visit. Love the location. Rooms are clean, simple, and with useful amenities like a mini-refrigerator. Of course the pool was great. Hasu and his team bend over backwards to make sure all needs are met and that the stay is smooth and hassle free.

My mom and brother joined us there and they also were very happy.

Room Tip: Just ask when making reservation. This was our first time. Think the rooms are pretty similar.
