Very nice inn, friendly, helpful staff. The decor is a bit sparse - industrial chic is how I'd describe it, but that is probably appropriate to the location and the history of the structure, which was formerly housing for the mill workers.

Every visit to North Adams involves the Porches. Kind and friendly staff, great amenities, outdoor heated pool, family friendly, close to Williamstown and across from Mass MOCA, The Porches is the place to stay when in the Berkshires. I only wish they had room service--then I'd never leave!

Right across the street from Mass MoCA. It's a set of existing houses that have been very well renovated into a single complex. The rooms were great. The breakfast buffet was fine, nothing special. Good service, friendly. We didn't use much of the facilities, except for the pool, which was great to have on a hot day.

Sadly this once great hotel has faded into a bleak and overpriced mediocrity. The beds are still comfortable, the sheets are still fresh and the towels clean and white, but the overall quality of the place has diminished over the years. There was a yellow chair in or room that had been taped up in a way that someone probably... More

It's a short (10 minute) drive to Williamstown, with the Williamstown Theater Festival, Taconic Golf Club, Clark Art Institute and all Williams College has to offer. If you are heading to Williamstown, these are by far the nicest accommodations in the area. Well worth the short drive over. Plus MassMoCA on your front doorstep.

Enjoyed a family vacation in the Berkshires, staying our first time at the Porches. We'll likely return to this wonderful property. It's a very unique design, with several buildings that were re-capitalized, attached by long porches, and converted to a very singular location. The pool is excellent, and there's a large group area with TV for gatherings. We also enjoyed... More

The Porches reminds me of the many old parsonages my grandparents lived in, bead board wainscoting etc.. The room was great. Felt like our own place even though it was a hotel. Bed was awesome. Staff was attentive and seemed happy to be at work. The fire pit was a lovely getaway to read a book at in the am,... More

Dear deanf387, Thank you for staying with us at the Porches Inn. The parsonage comparison is fitting, because North Adams is nicknamed "Steeple City" for its grand old churches. We appreciate your comments and hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back, should you ever travel this way again. Warm regards, Kim More
