We stayed at the Porches Inn for a long weekend in mid April between snow and summer season and it proved to be an ideal vacation. The Inn itself is a row of converted factory row houses and the conversion has been rendered to maintain some of the original feel, but updated to include a lot of charm and virtually... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite at Porches while visiting Williams College. What a special place! The suite was a perfect option traveling with our kids, and the room and inn were lovely. The decor is beautiful, rooms and bathroom spacious and clean. We had a great night's sleep at Porches. I wish we had more time to explore... More

Our room was beautiful and warm with all the amenities we needed. The internet worked well and was free to boot. Breakfast was relaxing with excellent food. We hope to return the The Porches Inn the next time we go to Mass MOCA.

We stayed at the Porches Inn while attending a swim meet at Williams College. The Inn is charming and the service great, with a wonderful continental breakfast included with the room. The outdoor heated pool and hot tub looked wonderful but we didn't have a chance to use them. Drinks were served in the lobby area, which provided a great... More

After spending the day at MoMA we retreated exhausted with museum fatigue to the perfect Martha Stewart styled rooms with huge charming bathrooms and beadboard walls at the Porches Inn. The beds were wonderfully soft and the all white linens and blankets were so soft, no polyester in sight. We loved the healthy selections of granola and hearty bread and... More

We loved staying here. Our room was very comfortable, the hot-tub and pool were amazing (84 degree pool on a single-digit winter night was delightful), the staff were super helpful. We are vegan and had good options at the continental breakfast buffet. We definitely want to find a good excuse to come back!

We have stayed at The Porches 5 times and are returning again next month. For anyone wanting to visit Mass MoCA it is the perfect spot directly across the street. The staff is helpful, the rooms clean and the bathrooms VERY large!!! The breakfast is lovely but sometimes tends to be crowded at certain times and the outdoor pool is... More

Great idea to rehab a row of mill workers' houses right across from the grand old mill now housing Mass MOCA. The results are pretty impressive. Pluses: location (if you're going to the museum); beautiful large bathrooms; excellent beds, sheets, towels, robes; fine cold breakfast, in the room or in the central house; pool and fitness center; friendly, courteous staff....

Many good things to say about the Porches, friendly, cosy, spacious rooms etc but one or two causes for concern. Very steep staircases to lug your suitcases up and down, double bed pressed against the wall on two sides so had to climb over each other to get to loo, A fridge full of drink to purchase and a list...

Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it is pretty expensive for this area. We stayed in the two bedroom/two bath suite, and it was roomy spacious and clean. Don't let the outside fool you. THe hotel looks extremely rustic, but it has nice amenities inside. Love the roaring fireplace and sofas to relax and have drinks... More
