We made a reservation to stay in a standard room with a queen bed and private porch on April 1 for $199. When we arrived, we were given a room with a king bed and no porch. When I raised my concern about the obvious downgrade with the manager, he said that $199 was the going rate for the room...

Dear Mr. Trautman, Thank you for your recent stay and the feedback. In the hotel industry, it is very common practice to make changes in the room categories until the guests arrive as long as the guests are not downgraded. After I searched your booking, I have found out that your original room category was a Deluxe Standard Queen bed...

We visited with our daughter, who loves the pool and hot tub at Porches, and will even put up with hours of gallery hopping in exchange. The pool is heated, so even if the weather's not cooperating, you can still swim.

The room that we had was nice enough. Cute antique items and a big bathroom. BUT, beware this property is at the edge of a busy road and if you are a light sleeper it will be a major challenge if you are in a front room which we were. What was particularly disappointing is that we specifically asked for...

We loved Porches. It's within walking distance to great art, great food, and the hot tub and heated ppol are wonderful even in the snow. It's a perfect place to start and end the day and I would definitely stay here if you're visiting MASS MoCA and The Clark.

We attended a matinee drama performance at Williams College, a mere five miles away, so instead of a hurried trip down and back we decided to stay two nights at The Porches. The nostalgia of yesteryear décor was intriguing enough to make us want to experience a stay here. Old framed photos of stern-looking people from the early 1900s, statuary...

Hello, Dave F! We're very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Porches Inn, particularly our decor, complimentary continental breakfast and modern amenities, and also your interactions with our staff.

We've now stayed here three times and each time had a lovely experience. Be prepared that the hotel is a series of small historic houses, so the inside and outside are antique in that way, but luxe bathrooms and lovely contemporary furnishings characterize the experience. Take yourself back in time to the residents who would have lived there, across the...

Porches Inn is a unique place, nestled in a quiet old mill town. Our family needed a quick break from city and work...the accommodations are very carefully designed in restored row houses....combining quaint New England with contemporary color and textures throughout the buildings....The added bonus was an evening visit to MassMoca for a concert. The following day off to Williamstown...

Dear dog54, When it comes to R & R, a little live music, Impressionist paintings at the Clark, a variety of good restaurants and the natural beauty of the Berkshires is a combination that's guaranteed to achieve results. It doesn't hurt that we have a heated outdoor pool, hot tub and sauna, all available 24/7. Thank you for choosing the...

We booked our stay at The Porches Inn due to a nearby ski race my husband was planning to participate in.
