What a welcoming place, from our late checkin due to heavy travel through our reluctant departure. The food, the lovely hosts (Richard & Clare are people you want to meet) and the welcoming, relaxed vibe make The Briarcliff Motel someplace I would highly recommend. All so beautifully renovated, great style...nothing forgotten. We have a teen and a tween and they...

We recently had our second wonderful stay the Briarcliff Motel. The property is conveniently located just outside Great Barrington on a scenic mountainside. Rooms are clean, efficient, and best, dog-friendly! The owners Clare and Richard are kind, thoughtful hosts always looking to make the experience pleasant, and not-to-be-missed is their (included) unbelievable breakfast spread featuring homemade granola and local (mostly...

Ok - I'd return just for those fresh scones every morning if I could, but this place offers so much more. The small boutique motel is refreshingly modernized and the innkeepers go out of their way to welcome and make guests feel at home. The rooms were comfy, beds terrific and everything spic and span inside. We slept very well...

Another lovely weekend with Clare and Richard. The Briarcliff is perfectly located near hikes, shopping and restaurants. The rooms are clean, comfy and chic. Breakfast leaves you full and asking for their granola and scone recipes. We'd never stay anywhere else!

The rooms were clean and comfortable. The location was very convenient, the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast breads were outstanding! We even got a chance to photograph a visiting black bear and to enjoy the wild turkeys! Only complaint was very noisy and not very efficient air conditioning. Would love to stay again.....

The motel is exceptionally clean, the owners were friendly, helpful and gracious and the scones were delicious. A perfect location midway between Stockbridge and Great Barrington. Took my grandchildren. Lots to do for adults and children. Will definitely return again.

I loved this place for the friendly, helpful hosts and the delicious breakfasts of scones, muffins and amazing granola. The rooms have very comfy beds and good showers. The two drawbacks are that the walls are very thin-I could hear the entire conversation of the man on his cell phone in the next room. And the lighting isn't very good....

I've now had the pleasure of staying twice at the Briarcliff Motel, both times within the short span of a few weeks. Whether one is a solo traveler or traveling with family, the Briarcliff is a most welcoming and enjoyable place to stay when vacationing in the Berkshires. The location is great and the homemade scones and granola are impossible...

It's our favorite place to stay in Great Barrington. We have been traveling to the area for several years now and it's always our first choice. It is a perfect location for enjoying any season in the Berkshire's and all the activities it offers. The setting is unique, cozy and friendly. You will feel like you just stayed with family....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
New English owners Clare & Richard Proctor have turned this classic 1960 motor lodge, with its spectacular view of Monument Mountain, into a cool 21st century b&b. We offer great value, clean comfortable rooms with a stylish edge, free wifi, a home-made breakfast of scones, muffins and granola with locally-roasted coffee, and a warm welcome. Chill out on the deck in summer, or by the stove in our guest lounge in winter. We are five minutes from Great Barrington and Stockbridge, and under 15 from Tanglewood. ... more   less
