2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Avoid staying here if you can.
The fact that they require a vaccine card should be mentioned in their profile. Luckily for me I had it in my car. I don't mind if some hotel owners want to require it, but it should be pretty clearly stated. The owner told me that I didn't need to use the air conditioner, that I should open the windows. How about I decide that? The room was musty-smelling, and everything was very dated and just didn't feel very clean. There are better options in Great Barrington. This is a place to stay if everything else is booked up. Otherwise, it should be avoided.

The retro knotty pine room was very clean, quite spacious, with a table and chairs convenient for our take-out dinner. The ice machine was broken, and the "breakfast" was a choice of cold cereals.
