This inn was wonderful. The towels, sheets,etc. were so clean they even had a slight bleach smell to them. We had the sweetheart room with a jacuzzi for two. Extremely relaxing. Free breakfast was also included in the stay. An excellent value for the money.

Rooms were clean. Wifi was free and worked well. Decor was dated in style, but clearly redone recently. Bathroom small but retiled and redone recently. All and all room was good but pricey.

For under $100.00 you won't find a cleaner room in a nice setting. Breakfast good. We traveled for 2 weeks to see the changing colors, and were very, very satisfied.

Owners are charming but motel stuck in time warp circa 1967. Kids afraid to put bare feet onto floor. Lots of rooms all over America still have CRT televisions but it was like staying in your great aunt's apartment off the garage. Lack of alternative places allows them go survive. Buffet breakfast a la Hampton Inn but done with friendliness.

We are sorry to hear you were not satisfied with your stay in September 2010. As of September 2014, the 1896 Country Motels and Barnside Luxury Suites are under new ownership. We have been listening attentively to guest feedback and making updates to our property accordingly. We just recently brought back our full breakfast buffet, which includes eggs, bacon, waffles, yogurt, oatmeal, muffins, bagels, cereal, fresh fruit, juice, coffee, and more.

We stayed one night at the Pondside, which is a group of motel rooms on the south side of Route 7 a few miles south of Williamstown. Very nice large room with 2 comfortable Queen beds and adequate bath. The breakfast buffet featured basic hot and cold items, and certainly filled us up. I think this is one of the best motel choices in Williamstown - this is our third stay.

If you are looking for a 5 star experience this will not be it, but it was clean, roomy, comfortable, and near the restaurant and bar. Many television stations from which to choose. Breakfast was generous. For our purposes, it was just right.
If I would change anything, I would change the color of the walls because I love light.
