“Good bed, good bathroom, TV...what more?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2011

My spouse and I stayed at the Lenox Inn on 10/7/11. It was an effort getting there from our route through VT due to the flooding and resulting highway and bridge closures up north from hurricane Irene in August. What an economic disaster to the area for tourism! It is an older motel quite close to busy route 7/20, as described by other reviewers. We stayed in room 115 in the "L". It had a redone bath with all modern: large pedestal sink, toilet, bathtub, shower curtain and shower head. Toilets flushed, the water was hot. The hairdryer looked new. Besides the overhead light and fan, it had a very bright florescent light over the large mirror. No trouble for my husband to shave! There were the right amount of towels, washcloths, and handtowels. Cashmere Boquet soap, which smells so nice. The bathroom had a small window, as well as one in the back of the bedroom area, both with good locks. It was tastefully decorated, with a table and 2 highback chairs, and wall reading lamps by the kingsize bed. Large TV on the chest/credenza. The bed sheets smelled freshly washed. The pillows were a bit firm, but comfortable for me. The mattress was firm and comfortable. There is a bit of road noise but the curtains block a lot of it and it didn't keep me from falling asleep. I did wake in the middle of the night and thought a spaceship must have landed behind the room. It turned out to be the old dorm-size refrigerator/freezer combo that we plugged in, humming and singing. I didin't really notice it until all was quiet. It did keep everything cold or frozen though. There was parking right outside the door. Management seemed attentive, when we pulled in after dinner, we saw the night manager/owner peering out the office window and checking out the car and us. We didn't hear noise from any of the other guests during the night, and the place was at least half-full. There are plenty of restaurants and strip malls nearby. For the price, we would stay there again. Our room was fine.

Room Tip: Rooms in the interior of the "L" (115,114) are probably quieter as they don't absorbe...

Good clean place to stay. Newly decorated, new shower curtain & bedding, pictures on the wall ect. The owners really make an effort! Not very impressed with choice of places to eat in local area though so you need to travel 3 or 4 miles for some choice of decent restaurants. Would highly recommend :-)

We needed two rooms for two nights during Tanglewood season, and we were priced out of all the chain hotels (which are wicked expensive during Tanglewood!). We chose the Lenox Inn because it was the most reasonable (just around $100/room with two double beds each).

We came to the Lenox Inn with low expectations, but it was totally fine. Nothing fancy at all, but it was clean and had the basics that we needed. We got two adjoining rooms, both of which were clean and with comfortable beds. We were in the corner of the L, so were protected from any street noise, and we did use the outdoor pool on one of the afternoons, so that was nice. Best of all, it was about 10 minutes to Tanglewood and within a few minutes of many of the Berkshire's attractions.

Room Tip: The corner of the L definitely seemed nice and quiet.

My husband and I stayed three nights at The Lenox Inn (July 2011) during our first visit to the Berkshires - and we were glad we did. We usually choose more modern, well-known chain lodging, but The Lenox Inn just suited our needs perfectly ... and we saved a lot of money to spend on museums and restaurants in the area! Our room was comfy, spotless and had free wi-fi. We enjoyed the pool and breakfast at Friendly's (in walking distance) and we weren't bothered a bit by noise from the highway out front. The owners were extremely kind and helpful in giving us information about the area.

This is a no frills place but it has a pool and it was decent. It looks like an in-ground pool a friend may have in their back yard so don't expect anything resembling a resort. The front room staff were nice. The room smelled clean, looked clean. No bed bugs (I now check every place I stay in), dated furniture, clean bathroom, good water pressure in the shower. There is a small fridge but it looked moldy inside so I don't suggest storing any leftovers in there. There is an ice machine on the property. Parking right in front of your door. It's only about 4 miles from Tanglewood so it's good to attend events. There isn't anything really near the Inn except Friendly's and Dakotas so if you're spending the day in town and at Tanglewood it's fine.
