After a long day of traveling, we found this property to be very welcoming and comfortable. The room was large and clean. Big screen TV. As another reviewer commented, the elevator inspection is out of compliance. (It worked). Breakfast was OK. Staff was helpful and...More

Dear Marie C,
Wow, thanks for the great review! I was happy to share this with my staff during a morning huddle. Thank for for staying with us and I hope we can have you back on your next trip to The Berkshires.
Have stayed here numerous times while in the area for personal reasons.The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms very clean! Breakfast was adequate, but I am not a big breakfast person, so that may have something to do with my idea about breakfast.
Disappointed in my stay. Elevator felt like it was going to break and when I looked the inspection was expired (see photo)
6/18 while trying to relax I had to listen to jackhammering all day as they were demolishing the cement floor in the laundry...More

Clean, friendly, quiet stay. Couldn't have asked for more esp for the price.the room was clean and at a comfy temp. I basically only came to stay the night after visiting with my girlfriends family and left first thing in the morning.

Here is something I found from USA Today:
It is virtually impossible to rent a hotel room in the United States if you are under 18, the legal age of majority in all states. The two basic reasons for this are liability and contract enforcement. Contracts signed by minors are not legally enforceable, putting the hotel at risk if underage patrons do not pay. Also, hotels do not want to take legal responsibility for minors. If something should happen to a minor during the stay, the hotel could be held liable.
The drinking age in all states is 21, and most states have laws holding the establishment liable for serving alcohol to underage drinkers. Many hotels have mini-bars in each room or offer alcoholic beverages through room service. These establishments could be at risk if an underage renter decides to imbibe.
Most states allow hotels to use discretion in setting minimum age requirements. Upscale hotels, particularly those located in known party destinations, may prefer to cater to an older, more sedate clientele. These hotels typically set a higher minimum age requirement, which may be 21 or even 25.
Although many hotels set minimum age requirements, certain alternative lodging establishments cater to a young adult crowd. Many youth hostels and guest houses have no minimum age requirement. Some college dorms rent rooms on a nightly basis when school is not in session. Some bed-and-breakfast locations allow younger renters, while others prefer older guests.
Some hotels are willing to relax their rules for guests with a major credit card. You might be able to negotiate a stay in exchange for a hefty, refundable security deposit. If you are under 18, you might be required to present notarized permission to travel signed by one or both parents. Call the hotel or other establishment before your trip and discuss your situation with a front desk agent.
