If you're spending time in both Northampton and Amherst, the Econo Lodge is about equidistant between both, although its location is nothing special -- in front of a Wal Mart, grocery store and others. It's clean, not noisy, has a small pool and the staff is friendly and efficient.
Completely charmless, and it needs some updating. My wife and I joked about a "round-screen" TV in the room, which seems about 15 years old. There was paint peeling on the bathroom ceiling. There's nothing that can be done about being located in front of strip shopping center and a storage facility, but keeping the place up to date would help.
The staff was friendly
Poor management of rowdy guests. The third floor was like a frat house. When I called at 2:am to complain the desk clerk just chalked it up to homecoming weekend at UMass. Also the sheets didn't fit the bed which didn't fit the box spring mattress.
The room was clean comfortable and served its purpose. We just had an overnight stay between zip line and white water rafting at Zoar.
I didn't like people smoking outside the building
