unable to book our preferred hotel which was full on the Saturday evening.We did a drive around nearby hotels/motels in Lenox "on spec" and settled on this one. The duty manager was very friendly and helpful and provided a king room with hot tub at an off season rate which included free wifi and continental breakfast. this area is more pricey than other larger towns. bedroom was large, had a clean bathroom also had a fridge and microwave. duty manager recommended Mazzcots sports bar as a place to go and get food/drinks as it was within walking distance of the motel which was great. also there is a pharmacy and laundromat within walking distance as well as a Burger King and gas station.
The disappointment for me was that the room was let down by some of the furniture that had seen better days. for example one of the chairs had stained upholstery. breakfast was OK but the breakfast room was very crowded so many people congregating so nowhere to sit to eat breakfast so I took my coffee to the laundromat and did some washing.
staff were nice but maybe some attention on the furnishings would increase perception of the overall stay.
