Worst experience I have every had. First they quoted us two different rates for the same package but were gracious and gave us the lower rate. We were grateful until we figured out they gave us the worst room in the hotel. It was located next to an exterior door that had a sign on it that said, WILD DOOR...

Dear Vicki, Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, unexpected disturbance happens in the hotels. Hotels take care of noise issues as soon as it's reported. In this case, it was reported at 6am and was taken care of right away. Your package rate was misquoted at the time of booking, and we wanted to honor it without mentioning it. We...

The buildings had been well decorated, comfortable and some slight road noise ( we were on the side ). Breakfast was very poor and no hot food, not even hot milk also the space was very cramped. Some staff were helpful but not particularly welcoming. Good spot for travelling around The Berkshires.

Very tastefully renovated historic building, conveniently located, just at the back side of MassMoCa. Modern furniture and extremely nice bathroom, good bed. Cosy living room where you can get a drink and sit at the fire, cute cat coming around. Nice heated pool and hot tub. Breakfast is quite ok, real dishes, not the usual plastic waste. The only inconvenient...

We have aleasy stayed at the Orchards Hotel in Williamstown, MA. However, they were fully booked so we got lucky to snag a room at The Porches.

North Adams was a way point in a leaf peeping tour of New England and the road there from Queechee was ablaze in colour. The Porches provided very comfortable accommodation with one of the best bathrooms we have encountered in four weeks on the road. With and emphasis on art, history and design the decor was quite unique. Sadly the...

We stayed 3 nights at the Inn and had a great time. The Inn is located close to the downtown area and within walking distance to a number of restaurants and the Mass MoCA. We were on a golf trip and played a few courses out in the area so the inn was a perfect central location. They have off...

We spent 3 nights at The Porches, a group of renovated attached houses that have been converted into hotel rooms. The rooms are lovely -- furnished in 50's style with large bathrooms and comfortable beds. Porches is part of MassMOCA, which is a terrific museum nearby, and it is close to the Clark Museum and the Williams College museum. The...

A favorite place to stay for us, this year we brought the in-laws with us. They enjoyed their stay as much as we did. We met in the parlor for a glass of wine and then had a wonderful weekend in North Adams enjoying MASS MoCA, the galleries and the wonderful restaurants. Our rooms, the breakfasts, the pool & the...

We only stayed here one night as it was part of a trip to drop my son off at camp but I'd wished we'd had a second night there. Cozy rooms with just enough indulgence. Right across from Mass MOCA. Very close to good restaurants. Great pool and sauna area. Delicious breakfast. Two thumbs up!

We had another great visit to Porches Inn in North Adams. The double-queen room was very spacious with a great claw-footed bathtub. My 7 year-old loved the pool and hiking up the hill behind the Inn. Loved the breakfast and the coffee! The decor of Porches is really special, as it captures a different time when motoring on the Mohawk...
