Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimmmmmEE You get what you pay for
My family and I were greeted by a very friendly front desk staff whom check us in quickly and provided information on local restaurants and things to do. The room was clean, modern, quiet, the indoor pool was a good feature and the breakfast options were decent. Overall a terrific stay, we did go across the street to the GB Brewery for dinner but decided to have mexican instead, Xichtencatl was fantastic and friendly, they were crowded but were gracious and hospitable despite the 20 minute wait. HIE is a Great hotel and for the room price, it should be. Our advice is to avoid the GB Brewery unless you enjoy (poor) service with a frown.

The leaves were changing, the fog rolled in during the morning hours and we were in a special place on earth. Thanks for a great place to stay at the end of a long week.

Enjoyed my 4 night stay. Room was clean and comfortable. Shower curtain needed to be replaced and they came IMMEDIATELY and switched it out. So, yes staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious - especially the pancake machine! Nice TV but channel offerings could be expanded. Weekend cost was a bit high but overall, this was a great place to stay. Definitely would stay again.

Thoroughly enjoy my time at the HI-Ex Great Barrington. We were visiting The Berkshire School and found the amenities very much to our liking. Franck was a master of conversation and made us feel right at home. The breakfast was just great. Thanks to your staff.

The hotel and room were entirely adequate. The amenities and facility were fine but average. The room rate was a little expensive for what was offered though I suppose the fall weekends are at a premium in that region.

We came to the Berkshires with a reservation at another hotel. When we arrived,after driving 3 hours, one look at that hotel made us so unhappy. It looked like it would go up in flames any minute or we would have an asthsma attact from the dust.
My husband called the Holiday Inn. The man who answer said to come right over. That began the wonderful hospitality that lasted the entire 4 days that we stayed there.
Everyone was so helpful. They recommended places to eat and see. They had directions for every place. The rooms were so clean and fresh.
The man at breakfast was so helpful. Because of him I fell in love with the pancakes.
We told our friends who live in the area about the experience. They will be recommending the Holiday Inn Express in Barrington to all their friends who come to visit.

We had a great stay in a very comfortable and relaxing hotel. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating
The only problem we encountered was the road out front of the hotel was very busy and not well lite, so crossing at night was very dangerous. But the hotel itself was the best I have stayed at in a long time and I would highly recommend the jacuzzi room.

Over the years I have stayed in many IHG properties in N America and Europe. Room at Great Barrington was larger than anywhere else and very comfortable Staff were welcoming. Minor problem with AC - quickly resolved by offering a change of room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JCMass Good Location for Tanglewood Concert
We were attending a concert and Tanglewood, and stayed here using earned Holiday Inn points. The hotel location is an easy ride to Tanglewood. We stayed in a standard king room, over looking the front door. The room was large and included a coffee pot microwave, and a refrigerator. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There is free wifi which we did not use.
The desk was very welcoming, and got us to our room right away. We enjoyed the breakfast the next morning, there is a nice patio where we sat and ate. The coffee was good, several kinds of juice plus hot chocolate. There was a good assortment of hot and cold cereal, yogurt, plus eggs, biscuits and gravy. There was also an assortment of hot cinnamon rolls, muffins, bagels, english muffins and toast . There was also plenty of room inside to eat. We stayed here once before several years ago, and it appears to have been recently redone. Everything seemed very new. We will be back again.
A quick tip. The coffee pot was in the bathroom, and plugged in to the same outlet as the hair dryer. The reset button must go off quite a bit because there was a permanent sign about how to reset it. I was having trouble so I tried to plug it in right above the microwave which also didn't work. I finally realized that you have to turn the light switch on to the right of the plug to make it work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by howie053 Jacuzzi Room was a good choice
I thought the staff did everything right to make our stay comfortable. The only shortcoming with the Jacuzzi room is there is a kitchen space, but no table or chairs. They are available in the lobby or on the patio. Clean and comfortable property. There is ample dining and a fitness gym just a short walk from the hotel.

Stayed for one night to see a concert at Tanglewood. Easy drive to Tanglewood, the room was clean, the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall I would say this is a great spot to stay out in the berkshires.

Loved my stay at the HIE in Great Barrington! The Staff were friendly and very helpful, the room was just right and the pool and hot tub were very nice and well kept. Plenty of choices for breakfast and the coffee was the best hotel coffee I have encountered.

Rooms were well kept and spotless. Very helpful and friendly staff, especially the breakfast host. Beds were comfortable. We arrived early and the staff was very accommodating in attempting to prepare our room as soon as it became available. Price was a bit high, but considering the location and the proximity to the Tanglewood Festival, it was understandable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phillyevh Great service and spacious rooms
This was our very first visit to the Berkshires and a host hotel chosen by our Nephew for his wedding block. I checked out postings on Trip Advisor about the hotel and found numerous comments about a friendly and dedicated breakfast attendant. I had to find out for myself. Since I've been in the hospitality field for over 20 + years I wanted (no needed to meet him). So on our first morning I was excited to find out that everything that has been posted is absolutely "TRUE". Frank is a shining star. So attentive, he even took the time to show me how the pancake machine operated. On our last morning I opted to sleep in and did not have breakfast, when Frank saw me come into the room to meet up with family members, he actually came over to me and offered to heat something up for me. He gets my vote for Employee of the Year/s. Of course you can tell he is a military man, so as they say, "It takes one to know one". He thanked my husband for his service to our country and you could see the pride in his face as he shook his hand.
Our accommodations were more than ample and cheerful. Beds were comfortable and we appreciated having a microwave and mini frig in the room. The front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. Fresh cookies gave a homey touch and greatly appreciated by my 4 yr. old grandson as well as his Grandfather.
We all enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning again one day.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Koda2 Disappointed room not clean
First let me say we were not unhappy with the front desk and breakfast staff, they were all very pleasant and accomodating.
However, we were very uhappy with the condition of our room.
The first night we noticed our kingsize bed had a ripped queensize flat sheet on top of the streched out mattress pad. Not a very comfortable situation. We were told the next morning that they had run out of the proper size sheets. The next evening we had a kingsize flat sheet and no sheet between us and the comforter..
The room obviously had not been vacuumed or dusted (had cobwebs near the windows on the floor and crumbs on the floor) before our arrival or during our stay. The toilet seat was chipped and had scratch marks which is really inexcusable because it is so inexpesive to replace a toilet seat.
We had stayed at this location before and enjoyed our stay but not this time. The one thing that should be the top priority is cleanliness and cleanliness was the major fault.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JediMS Going Back!
I have been a long time fan of the Holiday Inn Express since they saved the day for me on my first visit in 2002.
This visit also "saved the day". After a long day of driving I decided I could not make it the final 2.5 hours home. I checked in late around 11pm. The front desk staff was VERY nice. He gave me the best available rate! It was easy to see I was exhausted and some hotel staff may have taken advantage of the to charge me top price!
I walked in the room which was clean and comfortable! I feel right to sleep on the comfortable bed and awoke at 6:30 am well rested and ready to complete my journey. (I had a 10 am appointment and needed to be on my way).
I had enough time for a nice shower and breakfast before I hit the road. The breakfast was as usual at Holiday Inn Express! Eggs and sausage gravy, coffee and a piece of fruit to go. The "breakfast guy" I wish I remembered his name was friendly and accommodating!
I will be returning again this weekend.
I had time to find a "cheaper" hotel, but my experience with the staff at this Holiday Inn truly made the decision for me. They were worth every penny.
After this weekend I will be able to speak more about the pool and the fitness room which I did not have time to check out before.
