The Porches Inn consists of seven renovated Victorian-era buildings that originally provided housing for the area’s mill workers. Located across the street from MASS MoCA, Porches’ guest rooms and public spaces employ a clever synthesis of retro and contemporary designs. The inn’s 47 rooms and suites are fully wired, offering free WiFi, BluRay/DVD players and complimentary DVDs. Porches' healthful continental breakfast is included in the room rate and may be eaten in the Breakfast Room, on the porch (weather permitting) or delivered to your room in the inn's signature metal lunchbox. The inn features a year-round heated outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna, bonfire pit, fitness room and meeting rooms for retreats and special events.

This was our 3rd stay at The Porches. Each was as enjoyable as the last. Proximity to MassMOCA is a draw, but this facility would stand on its own wherever it was located. The staff, grounds and breakfast made this an enjoyable visit.

Really unique place that you will remember staying at. We were amazed by the number of different states represented in the parking lot. The grounds and pool were very nice. However, there were no fitted sheets in the rooms and the in room wifi was spotty. For the price hot food would have been nice for breakfast.

Dear nfinkel, Great to hear that you found the Porches unique and memorable. We definitely have a good amount of guests who visits from other states. We do not have fitted sheets, we use flat sheets that we do hospital corners which are as solid as fitted sheets. We do not offer hot breakfast, however, our breakfast 99% contains organic items including our tea and coffee. We hope to have you back soon. Best, Mel K.

This was our 3rd stay at the Porches. The location is very convenient to both North Adams and other Berkshire locations. Prices have gone up considerably even for post-summer stays. We were happy to see the pool & fitness room open and breakfast served rather than boxed. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Traffic on River St seems to have increased, making sitting on the front porch less enjoyable. Staff were very friendly and helpful--quickly found a place for us to store our bikes.

Overpriced and overrated. Pros: Great location across from Mass MoCA and short stroll to the town of North Adams; comfortable beds; quaint bed and breakfast house feel. Cons: Bad breakfast (just breads, boxed cereals, bitter coffees, cold hard-boiled eggs, yogurt — really need a hot dish); poor housekeeping as far as taking the garbage out, replacing garbage bags, and replacing toilet paper; way overpriced for what you get, which is not luxury.

Dear RodH947, We appreciate your recent stay and feedback. Our room rates are very competitive amongst our competitors and the high season market price in the Berkshires. The room rates go lower effective November to the end of April. We do not offer daily housekeeping service at this time due to minimizing the COVID-19 risk for our guests and staff, however, we are happy to provide anything if requested. We provide organic coffee, three different varieties of gourmet bread, farm yogurts, Cabot sharp cheddar cheese, organic hard-boiled eggs, cream cheese, butter chips, fresh orange juice, cranberry juice, different variety of cereal-keeping them mostly for children-, three different organic fruit, jams, honey, organic harney and sons teas, croissant and chocolate croissant and most of the items are sourced locally. We hope to have you back soon. Best, Mel K.

Have stayed here numerous times and have had enjoyable experiences. Proximity in North Adams (across the street to Mass MOCA) and closeness to Williamstown make it very accommodating. The free continental breakfast is adequate.
