We weren’t sure what to expect as we had passed a number of motels during our travels none of which looked especially inviting. However the Briarcliff Motel was very good. Our room was spacious and comfortable and the reception staff both in the evening upon...More
This unassuming motel on Route 7, between Stockbridge and Great Barrington may look dated, but the rooms are spacious, clean and contemporary. Out front there is a fire bowl to enjoy a yarn or two with fellow travellers and out back is ample space for...More

The Motel is well located and the service especially the breakfast was very good I can say in our 2 weeks trip through Maine,Massachusetts & New Hampshire we had no plastic cutlery, plates, mugs and cups and a healthy selection we enjoyed it very much....More

Thank you for your wonderful review! Briarcliff is tucked away at the base of Monument Mountain, and can be easy to miss, but we’re thrilled that you found our little hidden gem in the Berkshires. As the autumn nights begin to roll in, feel free...More
Loved this small motel! Very clean, welcoming, with its own character!
Surrounded by green meadows, it was a perfect base for our vacation because we just sat outside until we got ready for our trips to either the nearby towns or great hiking trails!

Sorry, I only just saw this: there are a lot of great lake-swimming spots nearly. We like Benedict Pond, which is open to all and has a small sandy beach and picnic facilities (you can even buy a small bundle of firewood and make a little campfire) - about ten minutes from the motel. Lake Mansfield, which is in Great Barrington itself, is where the local kids learn to swim, and is a great family destination.
