When my husband and I were in the process of moving to Northampton, he started a job a couple months in advance. So he needed a place to stay during the weeks while he was in Northampton, coming home on weekends.
The Autumn Inn was a great, low key, and quiet place that was a temporary second home for us. It's basically a little two story motel in a residential neighborhood, walking distance to Smith College and even downtown Northampton with a little energy. The rooms are very basic and the furniture is dated, but that's the only negative. In terms of service and convenience, I can say that the rooms are clean, the windows open for fresh air, you can park your car right in front of your door for the 1st floor rooms, and the breakfast room is pleasant and attentively monitored in the morning. The setting is the best part - you're on a residential street surrounded by lovely homes, and the biggest surprise is the wonderful pool in the back. The pool is surrounded by big trees, and sits down several feet from the parking level, so it's hidden from view - it's a little oasis where you can swim or just sit and read. The staff is friendly and "unprofessional" in a good way. In all, a nice place to stay, especially for women travelling alone, maybe to a conference at Smith.
