Front desk hours of operation are 7 AM 10 PM. The Briarcliff Motel is a classic 1960 motor lodge with 16 large en suite rooms which the new English owners Clare and Richard Proctor are currently reinventing as a cool 21st century bed and breakfast. Our fully renovated contemporary bedrooms have crisp stylish simple decor new beds and bathrooms flat screen TVs and DVD players. We also have a brand new ADA compliant room. A new central space is planned giving guests a place to enjoy a delicious healthy local continental breakfast to just chill out stroll out onto the deck or into our five acres of woodland. The Briarcliff Motel is set back from the road in a rural setting located on Route 7 in Great Barrington very close to the many attractions of the Berkshires. We are just 5 minutes from the Main Streets of Great Barrington and Stockbridge. Tanglewood is under 15 minutes down the road and we are five minutes from Ski Butternut. There are many hiking trails nearby including Monument Mountain which is located right across the street from The Briarcliff Motel. This part of the Berkshires is located just two hours north of Manhattan and under two hours west of Boston. Albany is 45 minutes away making The Briarcliff Motel the ideal base to take advantage of all that this beautiful region has to offer.

Clean and comfortable

My husband and I were in the area to see a show at Tanglewood. We wanted a reasonably priced room to sleep. The Briarcliff Inn was the perfect place. Our room was clean and comfortable. The new owners are doing some renovations which did not impact our stay at all. They were very accommodating. We met one of the owners and she is very nice and we wish them well in the future. Next year when we return to Tanglewood we hope to stay there again.

Briarcliff Gt Barrington

The hosts were new owners of the property and were extremely friendly and helpful with lots of local tips of places to see and visit. Also provided an unexpected breakfast of coffee & muffins.

Renovations underway?

This inn is under new mgmt. The owners are very pleasant and in the process of renovating the extremely outdated rooms. That said, there was a large white stain on our blanket and what appeared to be several rust stains on our "clean" white towels. The inn is very convenient to downtown and hopefully once renovated, will make for a great place to stay.

Great new owners!

Claire and Richard are the new owners and went beyond all reason to make us comfortable when a tornado (or something close) passed nearby. They are renovating and everything was great. The room was spotless and they both are making real efforts to bring this nice little motel back up to snuff. You might ignore any previous negatives as they are doing a great job. We travel often and never experience such care. It was good to have the owners thinking of you. It is in a nice spot in the country.

Pleasant motel with quiet location

We really liked the quiet location of the Briarcliff. We were close to Great Barrington. The shopping in Lee and Dance Festival at Jacob's Pillow were easily accessible. The room, while not fancy, had a microwave and refrigerator which proved very handy.

had a great time

Briarcliff Inn was located in the best possible location for where we needed to be. It was close to Stockbridge, where we saw a play and also close to many restaurants. It was peaceful and the scenic veiw was amazing. I'll go back any time.
