Good Homecoming Destination

Went back to Amherst for Homecoming and had a delightful stay at the Hojo. Friendly staff and great location!

Make sure to stop and get a slice of delicious pizza at Antonios and a monster burrito at Bueno y Sano, both Amherst staples!

good for visiting college students

We have stayed at this Hojo a number of times, mainly because of its proximity to our son's college. However, it also has a number of other factors in its favor, including free Wi-Fi, plenty of parking, reasonable pricing, 24-hour coffee and tea and very pleasant staff.

To visit family

The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Everyone from desk to maid was welcoming to us. There was one day they did not straighten our room but someone had hung their do not disturb sign on our door. I guess they thought it funny. But the desk help gave us towels and everything was fine. The amenities were average. An outdoor pool that was closed. An indoor or heated pool would have been usable. I did not see any gym or exercise equipment. The room was spacious and we were surprised that we had a suite. The travel company did not tell us that. Our only complaint with the whole trip was that the hotel could have been closer to Northampton, which the travel company knew was where we were going. So we drove the rental car a bit more than we planned. Over all, it was excellent accommodations,

comfortable and convenient

Stayed 2 nights here to be close to umass Amherst. Booked on porcelain and got a very good price. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Nice pool and free continental breakfast. Convenient location, close to the college , tons of restaurants and shopping. Ten minute drive to Northampton and ten minutes the other way to downtown Amherst. Easy on and off major highways.

Good place for a weekend

I had a nice stay. The rooms were comfortable and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. The rooms did not have fridges in them...so if you plan to stay remember there is no where to put drinks or food in your room. Very close to UMass campus!

Needs updating and better house keeping

The room is extremely outdated, the carpets were filthy, there were spider webs on lamps that I can't imagine that the house keeper didn't see. The room also had an odd smell to it.... the bed was so uncomfortable that I couldn't sleep... there were hairs in the bathtub (not mine),..... The house keeper might also want to look behind the bathroom door when she cleans. It was late at night and I had to be up early the next morning, otherwise I would have considered checking out right away. There's no way I'd stay there if I had to spend more than the nine hours that I did. I have to be in the Amherst area frequently and there are a host of other hotels nearby. This Howard Johnson however is one place that will NOT likely ever see my face again.

ok

If you just want a place to stay, that is the place. Room smells. The pillow also smells. I just need a place to stay, so it was ok for me.
