Lenox Inn
Ranked #14 of 16 Hotels in Lenox
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Great place to stay if you're on a budget -- and these days who isn't? We especially appreciate being able to have cross-ventilation from the windows in the room so we don't have to run the air conditioner in typical warm, dry Berkshires summer weather. Another plus is the well-planned placement of the shelves and hair dryer to maximize useful space in the bathroom.

Everything is spotless. The building is all on one level so you will not have noise from anyone above you, and it's easily handicapped accessible. There's free wi-fi, a flat-screen TV, an in-room refrigerator and microwave.

Unlike many motel swimming pools located out front right by the busy highway, the Lenox Inn pool is in the tree-shaded grassy back yard. The inn is within easy walking distance of Friendly's, Dakota steak house, and Guido's gourmet grocery.

Room Tip: We've stayed here several times in different rooms and they were all great.

I stayed here for a few nights in early June 2012. The place was clean and convenient. It's hard to find moderately priced rooms this time of year in the Berkshires.

An inexpensive, comfortable night stay as we were passing through. Would stay here again if we were in the area. Close to many restaurants (we loved Halpin's Grub & Pub) and other area attractions. Older building but very clean and well kept.

Room Tip: #112 off in a corner - a little quieter and an extra window.

I stopped here for a night when passing through. What you get is exactly what they say. A bed, a fridge, TV, WiFi, a bathroom, and that's about it.

There's no microwave nor is there in-room coffee - and that's as advertised. There is coffee in the office but it's that slightly dark-brown warm water that comes out of a pot marked coffee but doesn't actually taste much of coffee, or anything. Someone else mentioned the paper-thin walls. Oh yes, you most certainly can hear the conversations of your neighbors.

On the downside, the extractor fan in the bathroom rattled so much that it sounded like a jumbo jet so I was thankful for the ability to turn on the light by the bathroom mirror. The sheets on my bed were somewhat rough to; perhaps over-bleached, perhaps just cheap. Again, this is a budget motel and if you're expecting more then you'd be in the wrong market segment.

If you are simply looking for a bed for the night, then this is a viable option. If you prefer your comforts and a little more style, then you might want to pay a little extra and move up-market instead.

Would I come back? Maybe.

We stayed here for a week, + were very pleased w/ our experience. The price was great, (the lowest in town). The owners were really helpful, friendly + very quick to fix any problem's. They always kept the room neat + clean. We would not hesitate to return + have recommended it to a relative who will be staying in town in the near future.

Room Tip: Don't let the location scare you. It seems like it would, as it is located on a busy road...but...

The lenox inn fits the bill for an affordable stay in the berksires. The motel is close to many fine restaurants, tanglewood, skying, shopping and other tourist spots. The beds are very comfortable. The room has a desk, two chairs, great tub shower combo. as for the general cleanliness of the room, I did find a hair on the bathroom floor and some kind of a web in the corner of the room. I travel often and have seen these things in five star hotels. Not a big deal.bottom line is that you wont go wrong at the lenox inn.

I rated the Lenox Inn three stars solely based on its affordable rates and the bang-for-buck factor. The "you get what you pay for" expression comes to mind.

Don't come to this motel if you're a germaphobe because the place wouldn't pass your standards. The room's odor alone will knock you off your feet.

Also, don't stay here if you care at all that others can hear your in-room conversations and activities--yes, all of them! The walls are so paper thin that my niece, staying in the adjoining room, was able to recite word-for-word what I'd been talking about.
