Love the Red Lion Inn. Always a joy staying here. Could sit in a rocker on the front porch all day.

Thank you for your review. The front porch truly is a special place and we are so glad you enjoy it as much as we do!

It is a vintage property so it is old. Expect that. The staff are peasant and the restaurant was great. No issues; it was what I expected from an historical Inn.

A Classic in Need of Refurbishment

Pros: Old School gathering areas such as the lobby, and several restaurants to choose from, all of which you can book without staying and paying :).
Cons: Everything Cosmetic needs to be improved. The price does not match the value.
Location: It's Stockbridge, and you are near Tanglewood, Many Museums, Good stores (women check out Vlada; women & men check out Casablanca). Lots of theatre.
This was a bucket list hotel stay for us. I've visited the area for many years, and have often had a drink or meal at The Red Lion Inn, but never stayed. Now that I've done it, I must revisit my entire bucket list, if this is the best it is. The carpets looks like they have not been cleaned or replaced in 40+ years. Really. Same with the paint. I love the classic old furniture and odd collection of "stuff" and pictures on the walls. I've stayed at other boutique and dare to be different hotels. This is not that. The beds are dreadfully uncomfortable, the bathrooms just sad, and overall, not a great experience for value. Stay elsewhere, and eat here, which can be fun. Better yet, have a drink on the porch in the good weather. FYI, we stayed in a suite, two rooms, and purportedly one of their nicest. Really? You can still smell the cigar smoke of a by-gone era that allowed smoking in the room. Paint is chipping everywhere. The carpet yuck. The bed saggy (my husband didn't sleep), and the heating in the room too high, so we had to open windows which was noisy (facing out the front of the inn). Just not what one expects in a classy hotel in 2018. They need $20M VC investment to bring this place up to grade, and no doubt they either can't make the numbers work or don't want to give up control. Either way, this hotel desperately needs a makeover while keeping the Kitsch.

Needs Work

By billing itself as a charming and historic landmark inn, it seems ownership has taken that as an excuse to put little or no efforts into improvements and upgrades. The furniture is worn and in some cases damaged. The rugs are beyond threadbare. Most of the wallpaper is badly in need of replacement. The current main inn was constructed in the late 1890's. As stated above, it seems they've decided to only upgrade features that are impossible to ignore, such as toilets. If the building had actually been constructed in 1773, one could understand the hesitancy to replace items of infrastructure. But there is a fine line between charming old surroundings versus old, musty, crumbling surroundings. For the exorbitant prices charged, guests should be able to stay in appropriately comfortable and clean style. Using "historic and charming" as excuses to not maintain the building is a shame.
