Very old building. We rented 2 rooms for the same price. 1 room had no dresser or a place to hang cloths. The chambermaids did not vacuum,replace cups or toilet paper until we informed the desk on day 5 of our stay. There was no ventilation in the bathroom causing mold on the ceiling,around the pipes and shower curtain which... More

The people were amazing. The guest service was excellent. They truly make you feel at home. And the room was beautiful and clean. I would definitely stay here again on a future trip. I loved every moment I was there.

Good stay and convenient to Williams college campus and museum - The Clark. Close to town and they advised good restaurants to try. Convenient for inter city bus route - Peter Pan drops off and picks up nearby. Comfortable room and good breakfast provided. Great to have wifi.

Booked this because of proximity to Williamstown Theater. 3 story building, no elevator. Steep stairs, loose rickety hand rails. Floor uneven. Drapes falling off curtain rod, obstructing AC air flow. AC did work effectively in v. hot weather. Bed linens clean. Towels skimpy, scratchy. Continental breakfast adequate but in non- air conditioned room. Wi-fi available. Reasonable cost for this area... More

The motel was OK, the people were very nice and accommodating. The motel is apparently quite old and looks it in that the drapes, carpet are outdated. It has a tired appearance and feel. My main concern was the lack of cleanliness. A small table had glass ring "dirt" on it when we arrived. And cracker crumbs which accidently fell... More

Reasonably priced motel. The bed and linens were clean. However, the room smelled like a bathroom from the moment that I opened the door. While a good scrubbing of the bathroom might help, I suspect that the odor has permeated the carpeting. I appreciated the continental breakfast which was included, although the selection was sparse.

This is an older motel -- which we don't mind at all. Stayed 2 nights. Very convenient location. Desk staff pleasant, especially helpful with suggestions of where to find good food. Fairly clean - staff could use a tutorial on vacuuming. Bed comfortable, linens seemed clean. Unusually good shower but filmy liner kept migrating inward and clinging. Toilet sluggish enough...

This was a very old and out dated former Magnuson Hotel (at least according to the old sign). Although the owners tried their best to accommodate us, the physical plant was without amenities. Very narrow steep concrete stairs up to 2nd floor were treacherous and, of course, no elevator. Wall A/C unit, sink in room, outside of tiny bathroom. It... More

Pro: Location is at the center of town and you can walk everywhere. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was well worn but clean Con: The room I had smelled very musty, maybe of mildew. The paint was peeling off a wall which they tried to hide with a dresser, and baseboard molding was coming off from... More

Great location but too old to properly be able to update. Beds were clean and comfortable but toilet area needs work. Stairs leading up to second floor were very dirty. Couldn't have been swept in weeks and the walkway on the 2nd level felt very unstable under our feet. Breakfast area had cast off old TVs and other unused equipment.... More
