We booked this hotel through hotwire and paid half the price of anything else in the area. We went into it knowing that it was a 2 1/2 star, so our expectations were for just that. The customer service was great - very welcoming, quick check-in and check-out. Nice sitting area in the lobby. Our room was clean, beds were... More

I recently attended a paint and sip night hosted by the Clarion in The Loft. The overall appearance of the hotel was clean and intimate. We were greeted at the door by Emilie, banquet manager- who showed us to our seats and assisted us with any questions we had about the experience. It was a great time! We were waited... More

We stay at many Choice Hotels and booked through the choice website. We only stayed at the Clarion for one night but the we were happy with our stay. We have stayed in some really great Choice hotels and some bad choice hotels - The Clarion Hotel was good.

We have stayed at other motels in Amherst area for 10 years but this is 5 miles down the road. It is spacious and clean, pet friendly. The bed was comfortable and the sheets actually fit the mattress. The layout is unique and the pool with a sun-dome cant be beat. The staff is friendly and efficient. The Loft cafe... More

Made a reservation for 1 night at the Clarion Northampton. We went to see our child play frisbee nearby and did not know it was Smith College graduation weekend. They and all hotels in the area doubled their normal rates (there ought to be a law against this). The facility is tired and dingy. The "swimming pool" had a noisy... More

We have an interior room overlooking the indoor pool, and thus no window to the outside. Our air conditioning has a fan that needs replacing. The hotel knew this fan was broken before we arrived but decided not to fix it. Our room is thus quite warm all the time. We were given room fans, but this is terribly disappointing... More

I am a regular business traveler and always found Clarion's to be a good value. Not in Northampton. Way too expensive. Rooms were dirty and smelled damp and musty. Roof around pool leaked making pool area wet and sloppy. Staff for the most part did their best. Restaurant food was okay but service was slow considering the place was empty.... More

Looking for an inexpensive room for a visit at UMASS, Amherst, we chose Clarion based on special low rates. We were pleasantly surprised.
