It's not the fanciest place, but the Porches wins with cleanliness and comfort and over-the-top personal service. One favorite is the free popcorn. Another is the complimentary watermelon slices. But the stand-out on our latest visit was that they allowed me to plug in my electric car overnight! The swimming pool is always clean and with Mass MoCA a short... More

We made a quick stop on the way home from Vermont to North Adams to visit the Clark and Mass MOCA. It was a family trip so we had one of their larger rooms with a separate bedroom. The room had a pullout bed and beautiful bathroom. We watched the World Cup final on a huge TV in a hangout... More

I visited Porches for the first time in July 2014. Upon checking in, I was underwhelmed but the place really grows on you after the first full day. The staff are terribly polite. The main house is not large but small in a very comfortable way. There are plenty of e-z chairs to sit and read the tremendous collection of... More

I love this place. I have been going to The Porches since it opened. I cannot say enough about it. I think it is one of the best inns I've ever been too. The staff are amazing. The pool and hot tub, excellent. The sauna great. The rooms are funky and fun and the beds so comfortable. Everything is done... More

Immediate proximity to the MOCA is excellent. We visited in May of 2014 staying two nights. Staff all friendly and the room clean and neat. Continental breakfast can be ordered the night before and is delivered at time you specify in a long silver lunch box. Nice touch. We had a one bedroom suite with the sitting room facing the... More

This place is a collection of older homes renovated into a single hotel. It is very convenient to Mass MoCA, and you can pretty much walk to anywhere in North Adams. Like other reviewers, I can bear witness to the uneven quality of housekeeping. It was fairly good until the place filled up, then it was more hit-or-miss. The renovation... More

Location around the block from MoCA cannot be beat if you are in town to visit the museum. We stayed a Thursday night and found it to be very quiet, however the place was practically empty! By the time we checked out at noon on Friday they were already packed and sound level much different. I read a few reviews... More

After a full day of sightseeing, we returned to our room at 7:30 p.m. to discover that no housekeeping service had been done. The beds were still unmade, bathroom untouched, and breakfast dishes remained. A call to the front desk resulted in only frustration. The next morning the manager on duty was argumentative, claiming it was our fault for the... More

We spent last weekend at The Porches. It was our 6th stay. We were last there in April of this year. This weekend we had friends join us. We arrived a day earlier than our friends. I noticed right away the grounds were looking a bit overgrown. All of the mulched gardens had weeds growing through, the patio surrounding the... More

Just the perfect place to stay if you're going to MASSMoca for music or just the museum itself. Of course all of this great stuff is located in the beautiful Berkshires, where natural beauty and the arts co-exist seamlessly. Lastly, I'd like to give a thank you to Stephanie, our very gracious host at the front desk.
