Most positive thing is the location -beautiful neighborhood and the other positive is that the staff seemed nice. The picture on the brochure and website looks MUCH better that the real deal. Very drab, depressing place and yes, it had a musty smell. It could be a beautiful place but it needs much love and updating. It just was very... More

I have stayed at the Autumn Inn many times over the past 15 years, beginning when I was in grad school in Northampton. The inn used to be a low-key, family run place- nothing fancy, just a good place to stay. For many years, it was our go-to place to with our kids right when school ended because of their... More

We snuck away for a three day break to Northampton to kick off summer vacation. Planned to watch some World Cup with soccer fans and read and relax by the pool. Temperatures were in the 90s! Imagine our disappointment when the beautiful pool was closed. We have spent many mini vacations here and always enjoyed relaxing by the pool. The... More

The staff were friendly and the room was fine, with everything you need/expect. The location is a bit of a walk to downtown, and the breakfast was nothing special in a very dark, depressing room - all for an average price.

Maybe it should be called the Autumn Motel, since in rooms and breakfast it is much more of a motel than an Inn (like a B&B). But for what is is, it's very good. My husband and I stayed 2 nights in order to ride the various bike paths. It was quiet and comfortable. Room had a fridge which is... More

The building facing the road looks great. But walk in and get ready for a melange of odors! The breakfast room is depressing early American. The building out back is all motel. Our room smelled awful-had to buy deodorizer at cvs. Again ugly dreary furniture and a couple of measly energy saving lights. I would not return even though great... More

I'll agree that the rooms here are simple and that the place hasn't been updated in a while. In fact, it looks about the same as it did when I used to play there with my elementary school buddy whose parents' owned it then. HOWEVER - the place is clean and comfortable and the staff has class. Aubrey, the Assistant... More

All in all, this is a very nice place. The Autumn is situated in a lovely residential neighborhood, close to Smith College, and it is indeed walkable to downtown (I'm always skeptical when hotels make claims such as that -- but for once it was true). The furnishings are old and very slightly tatty, and the walls are oddly thin... More

We needed to stay near the center of Northampton. After checking several places, their prices and reviews, we decided to stay at the Autumn Inn. The Inn is located in the beautiful area of Smith College. It is a four minute drive or a 15 minute walk to the center of Northampton. The staff is friendly and the room was... More

Stayed here with my daughter during admissions tours and interviews at Smith College. The hotel manager recommended a great cajun-fusion restaurant that was awesome. Our room was cozy and comfortable and the breakfast the next morning was nice. I will definitely stay here again.
