“Disappointed and checked out after one of a two night stay”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2009

Our first skiing trip to Butternut and compared to the other hotels and B&Bs in the area this was a good price. But the room was in need of updating, a huge gap round the doorway letting in fierce drafts (it was 13F outside!), noisy heating system that we had to turn off to try and get some sleep, which meant the thin sheet/blanket/counterpane on the bed weren't enough, no extra blankets so spent the night freezing cold, and only tepid (at best) water in the shower so stayed cold even after washing! Our ground floor room had a single window onto the front of the building, so had to keep curtains closed all the time for privacy from the parking lot. So disappointed we checked out after just one night of a two night stay: it's not even worth the (relatively cheap) price.

The Days Inn in Great Barrington, Mass, is a great place to sleep while taking in the Berkshires. The motel is conveniently located on Main Street in Great Barrington within walking distance to restaurants, galleries, and shops. It is about a 4 mile drive to Ski Butternut and a 6 mile drive to Catamount. The Days Inn provides discount vouchers for skiing at both locations.

Management and employees, led by owner Rita, are polite and helpful. The complimentary breakfast is simple and adequate. My wife, two children and I have stayed at this motel twice in the last year while skiing and found it to the be most convenient and reasonably priced lodging in Great Barrington.

  • Liked — The location
  • Disliked — The fact that the pool has been closed. There is a public pool a couple of miles away.

Disappointed with the place. An older motel, in need of some updating. Only one window in the room that faces the walkway, so there is no privacy if you want natural light. Not cleaned very well, it smelled of smoke, even though it was a non-smoking room, and the bathroom door handle fell off. The staff were friendly, and the location is very close to shops in the town.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Days Inn for 2 nights, December 28-29, 2007. It was my birthday weekend and I had wanted to go on a nice ski trip weekend. Of course, I had wanted to stay at a nice place. Some other placed that I looked at was asking for $100+ more per night compared to the Days Inn. I was very hesitant about staying here after reading the bad and scary reviews. However, a friend of mine has stayed here a couple of times before, and vouches for the place. Surprisingly, Days Inn turned out to be a pretty decent place to stay. We had a King size non-smoking room on the second floor, located at the front of the building. The king size bed was very comfortable and big, plus it had 5 fluffy pillows!! We had a couch and a work/dining table on the side.

One bad note is that the rooms are built on wooden planks. So when people are walking by your room, you can hear every step. I would suggest asking for a room on the ground floor, located at the front. Shower was good, had plenty of hot water.

The continental breakfast was good, they offer coffee, juice, cereal, oatmeal, hot cocoa, donuts, toast and bagels.

The hotel also provides discount coupons for ski lifts. So all in all, we had a enjoyable stay at this nice hotel. I would definitely stay here again, the next time I'm around the area.

  • Liked — Free breakfast, Big room, Free WIFI internet connection, Lots of pillows
  • Disliked — You can hear people walking by outside your oom.

Our room smelled. Our comforter was dirty. We had roaches. There were trains rattling by late at night. All for almost $200. Location is good but this place is generally a dump.

This is a true "motor" lodge. While the web shows pictures of a quaint building where you check in, the lodge is a double decker drive up with wooden planks that shake when someone walks by your room. They advertise a pool but it's been closed for 10 years. Meanwhile, the owners offer up rooms on the back side of the motel (20 yards from working train tracks) to tour bus groups. In our case 80 teen girls on 2 buses rolled in at 10 pm. The girls proceeded to run all over the place until 2 am, hence the title of this posting. I brought this to management's attention the next morning and was very abruptly & rudely cut off from finishing my comments and told that I "should have called the noise in." Management takes the approach that there is no problem until someone complains. Still, I don't think it would have made any difference as stopping 80 teenagers from having fun running around the place would be like the game wack-a-mole. The manager has had these problems with tour buses before.

The rooms are very basic semi-clean and livable. Still we vacated the following morning for a bit more expensive yet true to its advertising stay down the street.

The location is great since it across from the Searles Castle and close to a great and vibrant small downtown. The room was okay in a dated sort of way (but why was there a long hair on the pillow when I pulled the bedspread down?) but it lacks wireless, certainly an inexpensive basic to provide in 2007.

There must have been a operating indoor pool at one time, but it is closed, as it was 2-3 years ago when we stayed there.The continental breakfast has shrunk from what it was 2-3 years ago; just coffee, OJ, cereal and toast or supermarket bagels.

It seems to have gone a bit downhill from the last time we stayed there. Wireless and more breakfast choices could move it to an average rating.

Even though we have really liked the proximity to downtown, I think we'll be looking elsewhere the next time we stay in the area.

  • Liked — location is great
