Fantastic location--in walking distance of just about everything worth seeing in Williamstown--and friendly service. But there were problems: the room smelled strongly of mildew, twice I found a live ant crawling on the bed-cover, and both the overhead light and the telephone did not work in my room--only the former got fixed during my stay. So it's cheap, but for... More

The location and the price were fine, but we found 2 major problems, one of which was poor security. The dead-bolt lock in the door did NOT work, because the jamb-plate was broken. Secondly, the toilet was crammed into a tight corner of the bathroom, so it was almost impossible to sit down there and perform the needed motions. Also,... More

I have stayed in several motels in Williamstown, and this is the one of my choice. Well located and clean. Felt very safe. Furniture is outdated but well kept. Good internet. Very safe and quiet.......

Northside Motel is a really good place to stay when you are visiting Williamstown. It is located right across the street from the Williams College campus and is just a few minutes walk to the Williamstown Theatre Festival and a few minutes by car to the Clark Art Institute, Taconic Golf Club and downtown. Vinny and Nikki provide a friendly... More

The room simply smelled horrible upon entry - so much to the point that we did an immediate about face and refused to stay in it. It was a very stale odor. The decor looked very dated from what we could see for the 30 seconds we were in this place. You get the feel the owners are trying to... More

Unbelievably terrible. Rude staff, dirty room (hair in the bed, unflushed toilet in my room when I checked in), nobody cleaned the room or took out trash in my two day stay. Manager was dishonest and rude. NEVER again.

Despite some of the negative reviews this property was clean and was a bargain. I had a good night's sleep, hot water and had internet access. What more do you really need, at times I believe people are just too spoiled. I'll be back.

We stayed there during a busy time of year - and just before students returned. Clean, reasonably priced compared to others and friendly staff. So quiet that we took a nap mid-afternoon right after checking in - didn't hear a peep anywhere. Same at night. Overall a bit dated but clean and basic breakfast - so we were pleased. Great... More

This is a clean, comfortable, 1950s hotel. The owners live on site and were very polite and helpful. It is a dated hotel, but clean, quiet, and well maintained. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay near Williams (it is very close) and who understands that old does not mean of lower value.

When making my reservation, I had asked for a quiet room, and was very pleased that my end unit against the office was indeed quiet. I felt safe, and slept well. The owners are clearly trying to update this 50's motel, for instance, with fresh exterior unit doors, wall-mounted flat-screen TV, new bedspread, and new desk lamps, but my room... More
