Beds super comfy. Food Terrific. Everything very clean, and the "Eat Stay Rock Package" is supreme choice, With this terrible virus. life has been getting a lot of us down. Even though we decorated the tree something sure was missing. All I know was the moment we drove up to the "Red Lion Inn" suddenly it was Christmas. Not only Christmas but the entire spirit of the season was there magically in the air. When we entered the Inn we found that all we were missing was there. We were missing the cheery greetings from a stranger, the smell of a burning log, the nip in the air. We only managed to stay 2 nights but they were 2 magical nights of joy and happiness. All this would not be possible without the wonderous staff of the Red Lion Inn. Thank you too: Starting with Sidney, Emily, and Samantha helping us at the front desk and lobby, with fun personalies and beautiful smiles... Thank you to Miranda and her remembering; where I would like to sit at breakfast and surprise us with it ready in the dining room... She was terrific.... And thank you to the fun Mat and Ryan waiting on us with skill, talent and great personalities. Thank you, to Mike at the front desk lifting our refrigerator like a body builder and Nick in maintenance with such charm. Thank you for the man whose name escapes me stoking and building the fire, giving us a warm cozy spot to sip coffee in the lobby... So many to thank for making the best visit ever... And thank you so much to Sarah and her family for keeping history alive in this beautiful old Inn... I know I have missed so many but your all terrific.. thank you to Charlotte in the gift shop as well.. Love and Merry Christmas, Happiest of Chanaka and Happy Holiday..we can't wait to come back...Oh and the room was so clean!!!!!!! MaryAnn Read less

We had a few issues in our visit to the RLI. This was our first time there. I will give a review of our lodging first, and then one of the restaurant.

We had a few issues in our visit to the RLI. This was our first time there. I will give a review of our lodging first, and then one of the restaurant. Our heat did not work, they sent someone promptly to look at it, he was unable to fix it so left and brought us a space heater. Our bed sheets were stained. Ice machines weren’t working so we were told if we needed ice, to go down to the tavern. We were on the 4th floor. I understand they want to be careful with COVID, but they could have had someone drop it off in front of our door and it would have been “contact-less” It would also have been nice to have a small fridge in our room. Especially since we had no ice for our beverages. The inn itself is charming and beautiful. Tons of beautiful artwork and antiques, it is gorgeous. We were excited to meet the house cat but evidently he was home at his house. Regarding the food, our waitress was lovely, and service was very good. I ordered the autumn burrata appetizer., it was incredibly bland. There was a shmear of unseasoned butternut squash in the plate, a sprinkle of pomegranate seeds, a grilled pear, that was hard as rock and unripened. Arugula was not dressed with anything. There was no salt or pepper to try and doctor it up. Incredibly disappointing. This dish had potential to be delicious, but fell very short. Our entrees were both delicious. My boyfriend had the prime rib and popover which were both excellent. I had the fish and chips. It was delicious but they gave enough tartar sauce for only one piece of the fish. Even using it sparingly. I feel the menu could use some work. It lacks interest and variety. It seemed there were very few options. I also think $47 for a prime rib is outrageously priced. Read less

All in all it was a cute place to stay for just an overnight. The hotel is very old ( meaning built in 1773) . The rooms are vintage to the hotel, which if you like that is quite charming. The restaurant downstairs has excellent food, a little on the pricey side. But, all farm to table. The hotel was very quiet. People were respectful when… Read more

I was pleased with my stay at the Red Lion Inn. This was a last-minute, mid-week booking and I was able to take advantage of the $200 per night dining credit offered on their website.

Staying at The Red Lion Inn was my first time being at a hotel since COVID-19. The whole trip I felt very safe and well taken care of. The staff both at the front of house and at the restaurants we're all so welcoming and took safety precautions seriously. I stayed in the Steven House which I loved! My room was very clean, spacious, and warm. Amy at the front desk and Matt at the Tavern were so helpful in directing me where to hike and explore during my time in the Berkshires. The food and drink selection is also incredible! I loved being able to dine right at the Inn. I would 100% stay here again and will recommend it to all my friends, family and colleagues. Thank you Red Lion Inn! Read less
