“Very Nice for the Price!”
Reviewed September 26, 2010

We found this hotel to be affordable, very clean and friendly staff. They did offer a free breakfast but we left early. Our beds were very comfortable. The location is very convenient to Stockbridge and surrounding towns. We would stay there again and recommend to our friends.

We reserved two rooms on Hotwire only to find, once they were paid for, that the rate was only for smoking rooms. The front desk, when we called to rectify, offered a $10/room/night upgrade to a non-smoking room. They failed to try and comprehend that we had been duped... While the room was clean, that is the most we can give to the hotel. When we got there, the room was very hot and steamy, and the air conditioner was not up to the task of cooling the room. On full throttle, we still slept under a bare and scratchy sheet. The towels reminded me of gym in high school (threadbare and itsy). The sign out front that advertised free wifi in gigantic letters was not met by accessible internet access. None of our three (2 mac, 1 pc) computers could crack its access requirements... AND there were numerous other hotels closer to Tanglewood, Lee, Lenox, etc. that would have been similar in cost and much higher in rankings! I did tell the manager that unless she could make some accommodation for the problems (non-smoking room surcharge, inefficient a/c, no wifi, etc), I would provide accurate feedback reviews. This did not faze her or move her to even make a verbal apology for any of the misrepresentation or inconveniences...

The room was small, the Internet was off and on. Coffee and some Dunkin' Donuts (if you get there before they're gone). We got a good rate because of the "Value Club" membership. Restaurants are several miles away. This is a basic motel--don't expect much.

A group of 5 of us were in town for a funeral and we stayed here one night. It was clean, there were multiple brochures in the room in case you didn't know the area. My only complaint was the bathroom had a strong smell of cigarette smoke although it was a non smoking room. We just had to keep the door closed the whole time and it solved the problem.

Have traveled with friends for years to Tanglewood. Disappointed with our regular hotel (and its escalating prices) we decided to try something new. This is a basic motel, but the location, cleanliness, and price made it an excellent value. There were eight in our group, and no one was unhappy with the accommodations. (That in itself is a feat.)
Mini-fridge and microwaves and continental breakfast were all pluses.

If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place. If you are looking for an inexpensive, comfortable, clean place to stay while you explore the Berkshires, you won't be disappointed.

P.S. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating.

Stayed at the Best Value Inn by default...all the nicer places were full and we needed to get some sleep. Room was only OK, clean but nothing special. Room had two small beds, one of which has a distinct lean to one side. There are much better choices in the area.

One positive note was finding the Red Lion Inn. Had a nice bar menu and live (and free) jazz.

We got a late start leaving Rochester, NY on Friday evening headed for Lowell, MA. We decided to stop in Lee after driving for 4 hours (thruway construction slowed us down!). I had already done some research on motels in the area and knew that we would get the best price at the America's Best Value Inn and were only looking for a bed for a few hours - we arrived in our room at 1:58am. The room was clean, tidy and odor free. We had two double beds, with the exact same picture hanging over each of them (must have had a two for one deal - ha!), there was a refridgerator but we never opened it, there was an "in the wall" airconditioner which we did not need so we never turned it on, there was NO CLOSET, they have a rack hanging off one of the walls to put hanging clothes on and a suitcase butler to rest your bags on (again this was fine for us as we were only there a few hours). If I had to complain about something the negatives were 1) the wallpaper was damaged in spots 2) the sink in the bathroom appeared to be separating from the wall 3) the drain in tub was really slow and I ended up in water up to my ankles by the end of my shower - minor stuff for what we paid and the length of time we were there. Would I want to stay here a week, probably not, but for a quick pit stop this was fine - I'll take clean and odor free any day. They also had coffee and donuts in the office in the morning - we got down there about 9:30am and they were pretty picked over - so go early if you want a snack. Staff was friendly even at O'Dark Thirty when we were checking in.
