Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 987654321andy Decent accomodations, but a little pricey.
Maybe I am out of touch, but I thought this hotel was rather pricey for fairly basic accommodations. That said, it is more or less equivalent its competitors on many fronts (free breakfast, lousy free wifi, etc). One specific nit to pick, is that the mattresses seem to be covered with vinyl barriers to protect them from various sources of , um, "moisture". On my bed, the vinyl mattress protector was quite noticeable, such that I could feel it under the sheets and hear it crinkling when I moved on the bed. Quite frankly, this cheapened the experience measurably, as many hotels at this price point (I have stayed at various competitor's properties) are now publicly competing with one another largely on the basis of bedding quality and comfort...in my recollection, their beds didn't exhibit this issue.

We were in town for a lacrosse tournament and the hotel was sold out.
With that said I don't believe the staff or hotel was prepared.
The lack of cot's available and the lack of towels in the pool area made for a miserable stay. The beds were uncomfortable and the room was just OK.
There was a big group out on the patio and were out there well into the night and left a big mess which was still there in the morning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KarenH15 Very clean & comfortable
This was my second stay at this hotel. & both times I have been very pleased with the cleanliness & appearance of the entire hotel. The room rates are a little higher than those of some other Holiday Inn Express locations, but I was able to use a 20% off coupon since I had booked a college tour with UMass. You can't beat the location if you are visiting the 5-colleges area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just Sayin' Clean and Comfortable
My family stays at HIE's often when traveling for sports tournaments because they typically offer clean accommodations for a reasonable price. Although this particular location was more expensive than most of the others we have stayed at, it was very clean and updated. Clearly, there were several families staying there for the same tournament we were in town for, and their kids were free to run up and down the hallways all night. I cannot comprehend why the staff would not anticipate these kinds of issues, and have staff dedicated to monitoring activity in the hallways and stairways. Instead, parents (other than those of the children involved) were opening doors all night, asking the kids to stop.
Other than that, the accommodations were comfortable (although we would appreciate pillows other than "soft" to choose from) and clean. The bathroom was spacious enough. The hotel is also very conveniently located near UMass at Amherst, as well as area restaurants and supermarkets.

Besides the hair drier going up in smoke and not being replaced, the black hairs on the sheets, the spa being out of order, and the coffee not being refilled in my room, it was your average hotel stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FMCrew61 Many good characteristics to influence me to choose this hotel over others
I was happy to get a room here close to the University where I was officiating sports. I was not happy at all with the price. The internet said one price and I was charged a lot more....reason from the reservation line person - there was a demand for rooms in the area so prices have to go up. I was part of a larger group and I should not have been charged the amount I had to pay. I was limited on my choices, but Holiday Inn Express is not a bad choice. The price could have come down some more. Secondly, I understand the need for water conversation and not having the need to wash all the linens, but at least have hotel services personnel vacum the room properly. It was not vacumed, as I was expecting it to be.

The staff was very friendly. They gave us a new hair dryer when we found that the one in our room did not work. It was very busy but well handled. There was a basketball competition so there were about 200 kids but it was still quiet. Food was good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 3cam Great Location, Friendly Staff and Very Clean
We were in the Amherst area for our daughter's orientation at UMass and we chose this hotel because of its location to the school. We were very happy with everything from check in to check out. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and in great condition, and the breakfast had everything. We will definitely be staying here for our visits to our daughter at UMass and highly recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by georgiadawg85 A good stay overall
This was a good hotel to stay in. The room I had (2 queen beds) was very large. The room had a larger than normal mini fridge and a microwave which was really nice. The room was overall clean, however both me and my husband found some hairs that were not our own during our stay there. I found one in the bathroom and we both found 1 in the bedding separately. So that was a little off putting. The rest of the room seemed very clean, the bathroom was nice and big as well.
Checking in and out was very easy. We did not eat the breakfast in the morning, so cannot comment on that. We did appreciate that they had cookies out in the lobby in the afternoon. The only main complaint would be the cost, I thought it was a little high. But maybe that's because I live in the south and the prices tend to be overall cheaper down here.
Overall, good hotel, seemed clean and updated, friendly staff, easy check in and checkout.

Did contract work at UMass for a week. Stayed at the Holiday Inn. It was clean, not very busy, and close to restaurants. I would definitely stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gasblender Another good stay at Holiday Inn Hadley
This stay was similar to several others I've had at this hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and well appointed. Although this might be the last time I stay here as my daughter just graduated from UMass.
This hotel is a good value and the location to the colleges, shopping and highways can't be beat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Delaware bound Return to Northampton and the Hadley area.
While this was not my first stay at this particular Holiday Inn, I have to admit, it was one of my best. From check in to check out the overall experience was excellent. I always felt safe and secure, it was great knowing that in the morning there was fresh coffee and the breakfast selection was outstanding. To have pancakes was a treat!!!
I know that I will be back in the area and of course this will where I will be staying. I do thank you for everything.

The staff at the Holiday Inn Express were very accommodating. They allowed us to sit in their lounge long after check out as we had some work to complete and no where else to go. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. I recommend the Holiday Inn Express- good value!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cubbiesrule Great stay near the university
I rated the value as "average" because we went during graduation weekend and the prices were considerably higher than they normally are. Besides that, the hotel is great, the accommodations were great and the free breakfast was great. I've always had good experiences with Holiday Inn and this place was as good as I expected.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JLOsoccer Convenient to UMASS
Pros: Fairly modern, clean, very friendly and prompt service, free cookies at check-in, adequate free breakfast, and convenient to UMass-Amherst campus.
Cons: Thin walls (as other reviewers have mentioned) and we had a loud family next door. Could hear every word late into the evening. Also, fitness room is small with old equipment; treadmill was not working properly.
Still, an overall good experience and would recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tray Tray Great breakfast, clean comfy rooms, but walls are paper thin
Great hotel...everything was great until late in the day...dinner time, when we returned to our room to find we had a room that connected to a room with 2 SCREAMING little boys. I wen to the front desk to ask them to move us, but unfortunately the hotel was fully booked. It was a long loud night. We will be back this summer for a night and I will be requesting an end room on a high floor and if the hotel is not booked , try to make sure no one is right next to us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Green Can Excellent check-in, great room but gun-shy!
I was greeted by a cheer-full and no non-sense receptionist who made me feel like I was her first check-in of the day. (there were several if not more ahead of me) I was offered a room upgrade but I declined do to a recent experience at another H I hotel. I had been offered an upgrade there and I accepted. To my dismay there were ants in the in room Jacuzzi and the Kitchenette. The Jacuzzi would not hold water without keeping the faucet running. The two TV's in the room had different channels. So much so, that a show in one room could not be watched in the other? Upon checking out I informed the front desk, I am sure they will take care of it.
This time my stay was a completely satisfactory experience in comfort. I wish I had accepted the upgrade.
My only complaint would be highway access and egress involves U-turns and parking lots.

My 2nd visit as satisfying as the first. I'll be back.
Last year a minor problem was a bright yard light and no drapes. Not this time.
Use of soft white bulbs in fixtures, particularly that between the beds would be welcome.
