Mountain View Motel
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Great Barrington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2011

We were initially dubious as it looks like your classic run down motel. But the owner is very welcoming, personable, and caring. The rooms are very very basic but very clean. The bed was very comfortable. The walls probably would not insulate sound well but we had no neighbors and so we opened the windows to enjoy the night air and crickets. It's set back far from the road. We actually slept until 10:30am.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Mountain View Motel. We found it reasonably priced and clean. We chose it in part because there was no 2 night minimum, which was hard to find in this area. The owner Jignesh was very pleasant. The room and shower were small, but the bed was very comfortable and there was cross ventilation (as well as air conditioning.) It is very conveniently located for local attractions, and was quiet.

If you're looking for a simple, clean, and convenient room, this is a great stay. The owner is on the premises and available for suggestions, questions, and directions. The bed was comfortable and I enjoyed the absolute peace. The motel is on a quiet but not remote part of Route 23, tucked under an attractive gathering of trees.

I needed to find my way to Bard at Simon Rock. The owner drew me a map pointing out where I could go wrong, which was fortunate as I would surely have been in the hills all over the place without his careful attention. He also recommended a Mexican Restaurant (0.8 miles from the motel)--Xicoh's--excellent food and also with great customer service. I didn't like the margarita and just left it. The waiter inquired searchingly and brought the bartender out for consultation and she mixed me up something wonderful. Muy simpatico!

Although breakfast is not served at the motel, Martin's in Great Barrington opens at 6AM every day! So, if you are not on a vacation schedule yet, not to worry, you will be in good company with all of the other early birds, having a perfect breakfast just as you like it.

Thanks to all for a pleasant weekend.

A nice, clean place. Basic, but perfect. The bathroom in our room had been recently renovated, the bed was quite comfortable, staff was very nice and helpful. I'll certainly go back if I go to western, MA again.

We were in the Berkshires last weekend for a wedding. We brought our 3-month old baby with us and staying here was perfect. The location is great - 5 minutes drive from downtown Great Barrington. The room was spacious, had a fridge and microwave (which was great to store milk for the baby) and it was clean. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well. As previous reviewers posted, it is basic, no frills, but we werent there to spend the weekend in the room. The owner was so kind and friendly and really went out of his way for us knowing that we had a baby. We will definitely be back.

This is a nice place to stay in Great Barrington. Although a bit outdated, the room is noticeably clean and comfortable. The owner is young, cordial, and quite willing to meet your needs. It is quiet as it is just off the main road, yet minutes from everything GB has to offer. I would stay here again.

Stayed here for one night and was delighted with the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff in this family-run motel. Not at all fancy, but they can leave the light on for me anytime. Motel horshoes around a large green area that was absolutely marvelous for kids to run and play ball on. It can't get a fancy rating because it's not a fancy place, but definitely a place to consider if you're on a budget.
