Recent guest reviews

We were so pleasantly surprised by this hotel. When we booked a "2 star" hotel, our expectations were low, but the rooms were large, the mattresses comfortable, and it had a lot of nice features like an outdoor pool, a large common area (complete with board games), and a very generous "continental breakfast". Would definitely stay here again!

Good value for the price. Far better than the negative reviews suggest. A real bargain.

We are pleased with this facility. The charge is very reasonable, place is clean, receptionists are friendly. The breakfast was good. This facility has nice outdoor swimming pool and fitness room, we did not use either. Overall, we are happy with the place.

Price was best in town. Room had a damp smell but I got used to it quickly. Good AC. Good coffee at breakfast. Pool was empty and under repairs.

Howard Johnson is very affordable compared with the other places around. It might need some renovation, but it's very clean. The staff was professional and friendly. I stayed there for family/students orientation at UMASS Amherst and it was only a five minutes drive to the university. I will definitely stay there again because my daughter will be at Umass for four years, God willing. I would honestly recommend Howard Johnson to others.

Nice property with all the basic amenities. Staff was very friendly and helpful

The entire place had a musty smell - lobby, staircases, rooms.

Nice hotel with decent breakfast. The room is clean and I enjoy my stay there.

Comfortable bed, spacious room, quiet and clean, convenient location

Cool 1960/70 style patio motor lodge. The pool is the fabulous and the rooms very large.

The pool is nice but that's about the only positive thing I can say about this hotel. The room was not very clean, the bathtub needs to be repainted and the floors were filthy. The front desk was not very accommodating. One of our room keys stopped working and our elderly grandmother had to sit on the stairs for 45 minutes while they had to call maintenance in the middle of then night. I would not recommend.

While this is generally a pretty good hotel, the pervasive smell of cat and pets make it a place I will never consider again. Staff was friendly and helpful, rooms are comfortable, but for a non-pet owner, the smell of pets in this place made it unbearable.

Hotel staff was friendly and efficient. The lobby and breakfast area was clean , modern and comfy. Can't say as much for the room. There was --really!-- a 4 inch hole in the rug in the middle of the room. The carpet at one point was bright turquoise- still was around the edges, but was almost gray in the center. Walls were an odd shade of dark orange-y pink. The bathroom baseboards were black with ingrained dirt around the edges, as was the foor. The room looked as if it had been cobbled together- all the furniture was pretty much squashed to one side, leaving lots of empty space. This place really really needs at least to replace the carpets. It just needs a thorough renovation.

I was bitten by bedbugs and the carpets were extremely dirty.

We chose this hotel because it was pet friendly and we were travelling with our dog. It was perfect for our needs. We had a double queen room on the main floor with a walk out sliding door. We originally requested a king room, but we were offered the double queen as the king rooms were on the 4th or 5th floors. I was leery because of some of the negative reviews, but we found this place to clean and safe with a great price. The check-in staff were helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again. It's a great location for access to UMass Amherst and the town of Amherst.
