Great location, near the Smith College Campus and easy to walk to downtown Northampton. The property is well-kept, with a pool (which I didn't have time to use but it looked nice). Lots of parking. The rooms are large, impeccably clean, and comfortable. The window air conditioner worked splendidly and I could also open the other window at night when it cooled off, to get some fresh air.
Friendly, helpful staff. The breakfast is included and was okay.

In town for a family affair, we only stayed one night, we had a room upstairs. The room was clean, adequately provided with basics (iron, fridge, safe and blowdryer), but the room was very hot. We were staying during an unseasonably warm Feb wkend, but even lowering the thermostat, we ended up opening the window all night. The bed was comfortable, but I found the pillow to be too full, but that's a personal preference. The shower could have used an extra towel for my hair. The whole place had a musty odor and the feel of a motel, but I wasn't looking for luxury for my stay. The breakfast was very basic, but I found the consistency of the hard boiled eggs to be odd and the coffee was awful, however for 1-2 night's stay, it was worth the price and I would stay again if in the area.

I wanted to support a small, local inn rather than the chains I have stayed in on my several trips to Noho, so decided to give the Autumn Inn a try. The price was about the same. The exterior is lovely and fits into the residential neighborhood nicely. The room was very basic but the quilt on the bed was a nice touch. The other guests were quiet but I could hear voices in the adjacent room quite well, which would have been a problem if they were noisy. The breakfast was included, which I didn't know when I made the reservation, so that was a nice surprise, although it was a bit mediocre, like many such hotels. I am able bodied so didn't check out the access, and was a bit disappointed that not only was there no curb into the main office which you need to go through to access the upper floor (it is just a small step, but it seems like a minor expense to make a curb); there is no elevator so I had to carry my bags up the stairs. If I had brought a heavy bag this would have been challenging. I am sure they make this known on their site but it didn't occur to me to check. Lastly, it is musty. I think I would have accepted all of this is the price had been less than it was. I wish them luck.
Nice Inn, close to downtown, reasonably priced

I have stayed here several times, as I LOVE Northampton but do not like the prices of downtown hotels. The Autumn Inn is adequate for a good nights sleep, a 20 minute walk to downtown and their free continental breakfast is good, plus the breakfast lady is super sweet!
Doing the best with what they have.

Like a number of other reviewers, I stayed here since I got a cheap rate from a discount travel site. If I actually had to pay full price, I would have probably lowered my review a notch or so. It's not a horrible place, but it's important to know that it is essentially a motel so, if you're expecting a hotel room, you'll probably be disappointed. As previously mentioned in other reviews, there is an undeniable old smell to the building (which does indeed extend to the rooms), but nothing too horrible, it's kind of like visiting your grandma. I was there during a fairly cold weekend, so I appreciated that the temperature of the room was nice and comfortable. There's also a mini-fridge in the room, and a coffee maker that makes some pretty watery coffee. Still, the room was clean and comfortable. I was a little worried that the people upstairs would keep me awake as they clomped around, but, thankfully, they seemed to keep the same hours that I did. The hotel does tout that they are close to Smith College and downtown Northampton, which is more or less true. However, if you're walking at night, be careful, not because of the crime, but because the lighting is poor as you make your way toward town, and the sidewalk has more than its share of bumps. It might be better to take a short cab ride, and I also saw public transportation (i.e. buses) driving down the street, so that might be a better idea. It is a fairly long walk to downtown (Google Maps says one mile, but keep in mind that, on the way back, a lot of that is uphill). Still, a decent location. Back to the hotel - they do provide a free continental breakfast, which is more or less passable if you're only spending a couple of nights. Things like yogurts, English Muffins, hard boiled eggs, coffee, stuff like that. There's also a waffle-maker if you want to take a chance. The only bummer is when I took an apple for a snack that turned out to be rotten inside, since I was kind of looking forward to that (thankfully I cut it instead of biting in, but enough of my woes). Another bummer was the vending machine dispensing the incorrect drinks, but that's probably the supplier's fault and not the hotel. The parking is free, though I did get a bit miffed when other cars were parked in front of my room (and, being a motel, it's directly in front). It's not like you have to walk that far to get to your room, and that's probably more of a reflection of the person who parked there. Oh yeah, the room had an old-fashioned key to unlock it, which I had to wrestle with on a number of occasions. I did feel pretty secure, though.
