The room was very comfortable and the owners and staff were exceptionally accomodating. They were happy to provide wine glasses, a corkscrew, and a knife. They even got a tray and offered to deliver it to the room. The included breakfast of homemade muffins, scones, and granola was A+.

Our experience at Briarcliff could not have been more delightful. The innkeepers, Claire and Richard, were incredibly helpful, charming hosts -- without in any way being overbearing. The room was clean and smartly appointed. All of the details were thoughtful and aesthetically pleasing. Everything was pristinely clean. Breakfast was delicious. The setting was gorgeous. And the room was reasonable, on...

A 1950's style US motel with a very modern, trendy feel. The rooms are spotless, with the biggest, best beds you could hope to sleep in. Breakfast is available in the wonderfully laid out communal area - in the summer this area will be even better with access to the grounds at the back. Clare's scones and muffins are delicious....

It's hard to compare the Briarcliff with other places to stay in Great Barrington, because there simply isn't another place anything like it. There are the requisite chain motels and New Englandy B&Bs, but Briarcliff is a one off. The rooms are clean, modern, slightly spartan, and comfortable. This is a 1950's strip motel that has been reclaimed to be...

We were really impressed with this motel and the other reviews were spot on. It is incredibly clean, modern and very stylish and the breakfasts are delicious. The icing on the cake is that it is incredible value. Richard and Clare were so helpful and gave us excellent recommendations for eating and sightseeing. We travelled with two small-ish boys and...

My fiance and I stayed here on a short weekend trip to do some hiking in the Berkshires. Luckily, due to some last minute planning, we stayed at the Briarcliff. We always travel with the dog, which is what directed us to this motel. The accomodations couldn't be better. The rooms are so clean and comfortable. It looks like we...

Pretty much the favored place for my wife and I when we need a place to stay in the area. We have been here twice in the last year and both times we were more than happy with the experience. It's classy, retro while modern, clean, and comfortable. Richard and Clare have excellent style/taste and it extends beyond the motel...

All the wonderful reviews of Briarcliff were very accurate. We had two very clean and comfortable rooms. We especially loved the lobby and breakfast area. There was a cozy place to sit and have wine or just hang out in the evening. The scones and granola for breakfast were delicious. Richard and Clare, the owners were so warn and helpful....

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
