My husband and I spent Thanksgiving night at Porches and only wish that we had stayed longer. Our room was large and comfy with wonderful vintage lamps and mirrors. The bathroom had a claw foot tub as well as a rain head shower and two warm robes. The view of snow-covered branches and icicles the next morning was New England... More

Porches was a great place to stay for a one-night art getaway to the Williamstown/North Adams area. We had a comfortable and very clean deluxe Queen room with an enormous and nicely outfitted bathroom. The included "Continental" breakfast had a nice assortment of mostly healthy items -- yogurt, cereal, hard-boiled eggs, fruit, juices -- and some tempting baked goods as... More

The Porches Inn is situated across from the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (Mass MoCA) and offers both a friendly ambience and comfortable accommodation. We were there over the American Thanksgiving for a rendez-vous with our daughter, her husband and children, arriving in a blowing snowstorm. Check-in was enhanced by the blazing wood-burning fireplace adjacent to the reception area. Our... More

I just spent a night at the Porches Inn with a friend. We were in the area to visit the Clark Museum in Williamstown and MassMoCA. The inn is a group of renovated houses which are across the street from MassMoca. They were the former homes of mill workers and have been charmingly restored. My room was large, and the... More

My husband booked this hotel and at first I was a little taken aback by the room and its furnishings. It was more like somebody's home rather than a hotel. However, I soon warmed up to its ambiance and charm. These are old refurbished working man's quarters to the factory across the street (now a wonderful modern art museum which... More

This inn is a creative re-purposing of old rooming houses transformed into comfortable and relaxing hotel rooms, lobby areas and breakfast rooms. Charming from the get-go with a fireplace room perfect for chatting or reading and a pop-up wine bar. Beds are extremely comfy, and the breakfast spread was extensive. The staff were very welcoming and helpful.

We found this place when planning a trip to a concert at MassMOCA. We were a little hesitant with the daily rate (we thought it high for North Adams, MA) but were glad that we went with the Porches. The rooms are nicely appointed and comfortable. The reviews that describe this place as "quirky" are accurate, but quirky in a... More

We stopped here during a road trip around New England and chose Porches, as it was quirky and different. It is like staying in someone’s house in the countryside rather than a hotel. We were given a free upgrade to a suite (room 12 in the grey building), which was much appreciated! Our room had separate living area over looking... More

A really different and quirky hotel. From outside it looks like a row of houses which it is. They are workers homes converted into really great and interesting rooms. The decor is a combination of original, industrial and modern, there is something interesting to look at everywhere you look. Everything in the room was excellent and worked well, including the...

the concept in fun, hipster thrift store look - like old dishes & paint by numbers as decoration. the design is basic, and not high end, but it was fine. I did not like the location so much, it is on a moderately busy thoroughfare behind the Moca. Great proximity to the museum, but if you front the street, it... More

Kim_Asst_Innkeeper, Manager at The Porches Inn at MASS MoCA, responded to this review

We’re sorry you didn’t find North Adams particularly interesting, and also that you didn’t enjoy a good night’s sleep with us. In many ways, North Adams is a typical New England mill town, but what makes it unique is how it’s reinventing itself as an arts destination. You mention that MASS MoCA has some incredible contemporary art, and its gallery... More
