Not bad for North Adams. The bed was very comfortable. Parking was about 300 feet from the door so we got wet when it rained. Fortunately, the people above us went to bed early because we could hear every one of their footsteps. Continental breakfast was underwhelming. I would not stay here again.

When we first drove up, I was disappointed that it was right on the street opposite an old mill. But I got over that quick--the inside is comfortable, cozy, clean, and has a nice character. Staff was helpful and knowledgeable. It is very quiet by the pool and firepit.

Dear Stretchrun, Our hotel is rather unassuming from the outside, in a somewhat unlikely location, but step through our doors and you enter a different world, at once familiar and exotic, a colorful mash-up of past and present with an overlay of timeless hospitality. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to see you again soon. Kim@Porches More

My husband and I stayed at The Porches last month for a friend's wedding that was taking place next door at MassMoCA. The porches exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the red building first floor front (along a busy street) and we didn't hear any traffic. The room was a basic queen room, which was HUGE! It had a sitting... More

For a place located a few feet from a roadway with an old brick industrial building stretched out across the street this place was surprisingly pleasant and comfortable. The pool out back was small but wonderful. The fire pit up the hill was very cool. Breakfast was limited but fine. All in all it was an unusually satisfying stay.

Stayed one night with my 3 teenage daughters, husband and dog. We all liked it. The staff was super friendly and welcoming. The lobby area has some great sitting areas with board games and comfy chairs. Our room was great. It was a suite that had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, plus a living room with a fold-out couch. It...

It was our second time in this very convenient hotel when you come for a visit to North Adams, the Mass MoCa and the Clark Institute.

We stayed at The Porches for a weekend away in the Berkshires. We truly enjoyed the experience and would return for a stay without question. The rooms were clean and comfortable with such a great vibe. The decor brings you back to the time of the industrial age with bead board, marble, slate, beautiful wood working. It's on a main...

I think this hotel gets good reviews due to the lack of decent places to stay nearby. My daughter went to Williams and we never found a place we liked unless you stayed in Lenox or something. This is likely your best option close to Williamstown but it is very ordinary. There is a lot of traffic noise in all... More
