My husband I and I had one night to get away. Living in Concord, Mass, the Berkshires was a natural choice. I have been to the Berkshires before and had driven past the Red Lion Inn several times, but never stayed. We read the reviews and had reasonable expectations, not too high, not too low. This place is GREAT. If you want a hotel with every technological bell and whistle, this is not the place for you. Put your cell phone away and have a drink on the front porch! Ok fine, so the floors are slanty and the decor is "outdated" (anyone heard of antiques?) but the Red Lion has more nooks and crannies than a Thomas's English muffin. Our room was immaculate and comfortable. The restaurant was charming (food was good, not the best meal ever, but good) and the service was wonderful. We've stayed at, and really enjoyed, plenty of upscale hotels like the 4 Seasons and Ritz Carlton. But this place has CHARACTER. I think the fact that it is family-owned gives it more of a homey vibe, which is a refreshing change from the corporate-run cookie cutter feel of those other places.
I hope it's haunted. I hope I can bring my kids here some day when they are a little older; to imagine them exploring through the hallways and around the corners (there is even an old fireplace hearth and mantle in a bathroom stall in the lobby) makes me happy for good times to come. I hope they don't change a thing!
