Our stay at the Yankee Inn in Lenox, MA was very enjoyable. The room was extremely clean and luxurious and up to date. Bathroom was very nice and extremely clean too! We enjoyed the fitness room, pool and hot tub as well. Like the room, these facilities were just as clean and enjoyable. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and accomodating too. All in all, I'd highly recommend this hotel for your next stay.

Room Tip: We had an view of the pond and mountainside behind the hotel. Just beautiful!

We stayed here for three nights in August and really enjoyed our stay. There are two buildings--we were in the newer one. I didn't see the older one, but the newer building is very clean, and the renovations are obvious. The rooms are nothing special, but they are comfortable. The hotel is centrally located to a lot of different attractions in the Berkshires, and the hotel staff was great. I would definitely stay here again if we were returning to the area.

Room Tip: Stay in the renovated building.

Nice place. Great indoor pool. Breakfast was good. Bed comfortable. Staff courteous and helpful.. Overall a very enjoyable weekend stay in a great location. Loved the photos from the 50's and 60's in the hallways.

This family-owned hotel has an outdoor pool, and a heated indoor pool. The price of the room includes a very nice sel-serve continental breakfast, with make your own waffles. Even the bagels and muffins are good! Request a king room on the third floor of the main building with a view of the pond. Ask about the free Dakota Steakhouse offer. This is a casual, reasonable, friendly place to stay while visiting the Berkshires.

Room Tip: Ask for a third floor king in the main building, with a pond view.

We have just stayed at the Yankee Inn for one night. The hotel was very clean and our room had a a balcony with a lovely outlook over the rear of the property. However, we do feel the hotel would benefit from an update in certain areas.
We were slightly disappointed with the location being so far from the old town of Lennox but maybe this is our fault as we should have done our research more.
One area however we found really let the hotel down was the breakfast, which was really quite basic. The breakfast area was so busy and quite small for the size of the hotel that we did not have anywhere to sit and eat and had to take our food back to our room to consume it. Before this my husband had to stand to eat his cereal and no one from the hotel staff approached him to offer a solution. But the biggest no no in regard to the breakfast was plastic cutlery and plates and bowls. I defy anyone to try to cut a bagel with a plastic knife.
However, overall it was acceptable for a one night stay but the breakfast needs an improvement.

As advertised, this place was easy to find and centrally located (amid the plethora of accommodations in Lenox, which is very close to both Jacob's Pillow and Tanglewood). Reasonable rates; at first I blanched at the much-higher weekend prices, but then realized that every place near there does the same thing on summer weekends. Great for kids--with (attractive) indoor and outdoor swimming pools, plus a (small, but nice) exercise room and computer available for the use of guests. Very close to several restaurants, and the in-house complimentary breakfast (waffle-maker, fresh fruit, machine-made pastries, etc.) was fine. Very nice staffers, too.

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor of the main building, which was fine, but a bit warm at first. Turns o...

Have stayed at the Yankee Inn for the third time and must say that the main hotel is quite nice, modern and very well kept. I did stay in the adjoining motel part once but did not like the accommodation as much as it was a bit dated. Hopefully they will bring it up to par like the main building. However, the staff was incredibly wonderful and it is nice to see that professionalism and caring about the property. Would highly recommend it to families as they do have a pool and complimentary breakfast. Good job!!

Room Tip: Stick to the main building!
