I recently stayed in the Autumn Inn for at least the sixth time, all connected with visits to Smith College and family in the area. For visiting Smith, there is no better location: it's virtually across the street from the Quad and Admissions is a five-minute walk. ALERT: if planning to stay for Family Weekend or Graduation, book the day that reservations open up, otherwise you may be too late, they have something like only 30 rooms.
The Autumn Inn is a B&B-style hotel. Not at all flashy, a bit dated in some ways. But the rooms are decent size, the beds are comfortable, the free breakfast (including waffles) is nice and the breakfast room very pleasant, and the location make for a satisfying stay...I always look forward to it.
For comparison, I find the Hotel Northampton to be too pricey and both a bit "fussy" and claustrophobic, while the Clarion is pretty bland & non-descript.
Looking forward to my next trip there though it may be another 2-4 years.
