"Good Price for a Good Location and Good Service"
Great price for a decent view in a cute town. The lake is not as exciting as we had hoped, but that might because we were there in the winter. The attached restaurant is very nice. The breakfast is OK. Rooms are very nice for the price and overall we had a wonderful stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Black Swan Inn, an Ascend Collection Hotel Thank you for your recent review of our property. I would agree that the lake is much more inviting in the summer. There are boats constantly going in an out of the water, a local beach within walking distance, and fish to be caught. However, the Winter can be just as nice, minus the cold weather of course. There is ice fishing, skating, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and more. All can be done on or around the lake. Thank you again for your review, we hope to see you again.
Great place, welcoming and helpful staff. Would come again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Overall a good night's sleep"
Drawbacks were dingy, musty hallways. Drab and dreary lobby and no closet in the room!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Black Swan Inn, an Ascend Collection Hotel I apologize for the disappointment you had for some of the aspects of our property. Everything in our lobby and down our hallways is brand new, from the carpet to the wall paper and to the popcorn ceiling. Each one of our guest rooms are equipped with mirrored door closets. Thank you for staying with us, we hope to see you again soon.
"Overall a very nice place to stay."
My husband and I booked a Superior king room for New Years Eve. The Black Swan was within our budget and a step up from 'budget' motels in the area. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the room was spacious and clean. There was everything we needed in the room and we had a great view of the lake. It took a while for the heat to come up and […] the floor in the bathroom was cold (1st floor room) but overall we had a great stay and found this to be an overall nice place to stay.

Response by Black Swan Inn, an Ascend Collection Hotel Susan, We are very glad to hear that you decided to choose our property the Black Swan Inn for your New Years Eve getaway. I am happy to hear that even though there were a few small issues, that you were able to continue to have a nice stay with us. I apologize for the issue you had with the fireplace. We took over this property this past April when the fireplaces were already off for the coming spring, summer, and fall. In September, when getting ready to turn them on again, we decided to get them inspected, only to find out they were past code. For the safety of our guests we decided not to operate them this year until we change them out, or fix up the ones we currently have. Thank you for your review, we hope to see you again soon.
"Had a Wonderful Time"
Everyone at the hotel was extremely nice and very accommodating. The view of the lake is gorgeous both night and day. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Brought my adult nieces for their first visit to the Berkshires and they want me to bring them back to the Black Swan Inn next summer. They can't wait to go out on the lake.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location in the Berkshires."
The rooms were clean and comfortable. Their renovations were very good. The price of the rooms through Hotels.com was excellent, especially for a fall weekend in the Berkshires.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Cute Berkshire Hotel"
Nice setting, comfortable beds. Helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was redone recently, so the rooms were nice- only complaints were that you could hear all the hallway noise and need a car to get anywhere from thereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely! Comfy. Come see!"
Watched geese taking off in groups over breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Have to start with the greeting at the front desk by a young woman who had extensive knowledge of the hotel and area. The hotel has recently completed an extensive remodel. Our room was nicely appointed and very comfortable with the exception of a waterfall noise effect whenever the toilet flushed upstairs. Not overly disturbing, but there nonetheless. […] The autumn foliage around the lake out back was stunning. I wish we had more time available to just sit on the deck and watch the geese swim by. Absolutely must mention the Indian restaurant in the hotel. The food was well prepared, had a nice depth of flavor without being overly spicy. And the service there was wonderful as well. Overall we had a wonderful stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel on the edge of the lake"
We selected this hotel because of its location and proximity to hiking areas during this fall foliage season. I read some reviews and did note that there was a change in ownership and management. The room was very comfortable, well taken care and clean. I loved the water view and lakeside public beaches were within walking distance. The staff was very […] friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend it highly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Excellent place to relax for a few days and to enjoy the activities in the area. It has a picturesque location and an outstanding staff. The Bombay restaurant is one of the best Indian restaurants I have eaten in anywhere in the world.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not Fully Thought Out"
The Black Swan Inn is very well situated at the foot of a pretty lake just north of the center of Lee MA. When we arrived, we were sent to a room that was not made up, a fate we shared with at least one other group arriving at the same time. The check-in procedure was more time-consuming than usual. The room we eventually got was clean enough, but the […] furnishings were rather small, leaving not quite enough place to put the usual pocket junk and electronics for charging. The light in out bathroom did not work. The breakfast room is the same as the Indian restaurant at the hotel, and was thoroughly permeated with Indian spices. While I like Indian food, this is not what I really wanted at breakfast. Once seated for breakfast, I found the offerings really poor and scant, and we left to get breakfast at the excellent local Joe's Diner. At the diner we encountered two other people we had seen at the hotel. All in all, I got a good night's sleep, but it felt like I was staying in someone's neglected guest room.

this place has been renovated recently and it shows. the style is still a little old but the room was clean, and the bed very comfortable. the Bath was also very clean, just old style. the breakfast is simple/continental but with amazing views on the lake. the staff is extremely nice and helpful. I would stay here again. if you can, get a room on the […] lake side. free parking and WiFi Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel on Laurel lake"
Nice and clean, good Indian Rest on site, decent breakfast. The gym left a lot to be desired. Looks like they are trying to spruce up the outdoor area. Nice rooms overlooking the lake with small balcony. All in all very plesant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"needs a good refurb"
Not a B and B..just a motel with a very average do it yourself breakfast so overpriced for what it is. Broken down old pool covered in and rough recent timber work on balconies. it was disapointing compared to other b and b,s we stayed at. Good Indian restaurant on site.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great staff. Fantastic new renovation. The room still smelled new. A terrific value.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with a view of a lake"
I will go back again next year. This place in under new management and they are making a number of improvements. The beds have been replaced and are great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Tanglewood."
The rooms were great, brand new. The lake view was great. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was aweful. You simply cannot serve food on styrofoam, very tacky! The food quality was bad. The 10 slices of bacon for 20 guests at 9 am was poor planning. The meat sticks " sausage" was inedible. Two brown bananas and […] one bagel was my other choice. I dont expect a incredible breakfast selection but I do expect what is put out to be edible and presented well and clean. Go to the nearest breakfast place and for go the "Continental Breakfast" One last comment please clean up the pool area. You can see it from the restaurant. Old dirty blue tarps covering some sort of boats held down with old car tires. This is simple maintenance that any staff member could clean up. I would not want guests at my house to see this in my backyard and I dont charge them to stay there. I know this property is a work in progress but some simple low cost work could of improved the pool area and the presentation and quality of the food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good modern hotel close to the lake beach"
We stayed 1 nt for visiting Tanglewood and are very pleased with the hotel convenience, amenities and friendliness of staff. The breakfast was adequate - bagels, pastries, bacon, coffee etc. We would like to stay next time but a bit expensive for our budget if more than 1 nt (as most in this area, maybe farther away is possible to find cheaper, not […] sure). We would recommend it to our friends. Although it's on the waterfront, you have to walk 1/4 ml to a residents' beach accessible with your room key. On the other hand, Lenox town beach is nearby, open to everybody. We liked the Indian restaurant in the same building where we had dinner before the night concert in Tanglewood.

"Great Location but tired hotel"
The hotel is ideally located about a mile from the centre of Lee with adequate parking. Although they are trying to make the hotel comfortable the building looks in need of a major refurbishment. although once inside this was less noticeable. The staff were brilliant both at check-in and any other time we needed them. We didn't use the restaurant/bar […] facilities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Black Swan Inn, an Ascend Collection Hotel Thank you for staying with us here at the Black Swan Inn. I apologize for some of the issues that you saw while staying with us. We have recently added stack stone work to the front of the building and have plans for other areas of renovations as we continue forward. We hope to see you again soon.
The hotel is an older building, but in good shape and well kept. Restaurant seemed busy in the evening, I can't say anything about it as i did not go. Parking lot was still big enough.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect for 1 or 2 nights near Tanglewood with lovely restaurants in Lee.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was OK"
I've stayed at seven hotels while touring and by the time I added the Lake view premium on, this worked out at the most expensive. And I'd say it was the worst. Yes, the Lake view was lovely, but I paid extra for that. Everything else was average. No pool. No Gym. Very limited Breakfast selection. Drab and tired decor. Well out of town. Nothing that […] I can find to be overly complimentary about. We were going to take a kayak out, but I thought their prices for that were over the top, so we didn't bother. I think others thought the same as none of the boats moved in the two days we were there. The one thing that wound me up, was the begging letter from the cleaner, especially as the cleanliness wasn't brilliant. The chairs and table on the balcony were too filthy to use.

"Lakeside motel on outskirts of Lee"
Long two story motel beside a lake on the edge of Lee town. The main road is very busy with a lot of heavy goods vehicles passing but the noise was not too intrusive. Room was good size and clean and comfortable. Small lawn beside the lake made a nice location to sit with a drink. Reception staff were very helpful and advised the best eating places […] and hiking locations. Nice breakfast area with bread, cereals, juice hard boiled eggs and bagels, muffins etc. Would happily stay there again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Sharp, ReFurbished, Polite and Friendly"
We arrived late and they were waiting for us. The staff was waiting and greeted us after a long drive. The rooms have just been all redone and are excellent - standard but clean, fresh and the beds are comfortable and sheets perfect. The pillows are those new small square pillows which make no sense to me to be honest - but they work!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"It was okay for one night"
The hotel was okay for one night. I found the double beds very small (not queensize at all). We quite had to squeeze into the beds. I was constantely afraid that my small kids would fall off. The other thing that disturbed me was the help at the breakfast room. She apparently didn't like to do her job. She was generally very inattentive. She couldn't […] really care to fill up the food nor did she clean the tables after people left and it took a very long time until she fixed the broken coffee machine. But she was very quick to tell you at 10 am that the breakfast room would close... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Quelle jolie surprise"
Cet hôtel est juste extra. Bien que les chambres osent un peu petites, elles sont très jolies et confortables. Les deux personnes qui se sont relayées à l'accueil ont été charmantes et d'une grande aide dans toutes nos questions et requêtes. Le lac derrière est juste splendide et certaines chambres ont vue dessus. Un seul reproche serait le petit déjeuner […] plutôt pauvre et dans une salle très froide. Mais le reste rattrape ce qui est presqu'un détail dans un décor tel que celui la. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
