It's standard fare for a comfort Inn. Decent rooms, clean and tidy. Fairly modern. Nothing wrong with it but equally doesn't stand out from the crowd. Wouldnt be adverse from stopping again if I was passing through

Stayed here for 2 nights, in town for a tournament. Walls are paper thin and the room next to us had an adjoining door so it sounded like our neighbours were in our room! I didn't get much sleep because of the noise. The room doors slam shut too. Overall nice, renovated, clean hotel, however when packing up to leave... More

Location is good, if you are visiting area. If you want just to visit Amherst, forget it.Too many fast food restaurant and no really good sit-down restaurant. Amherst itself is not worth visiting. Hotel is good. Excellent service and recommendations from staff including restaurants in other towns or locations outside of town. The hot breakfast included is a real plus

We all seek convenience, comfort, and cleanliness when selecting a motel.

$144 for a room that is not as good as a $72 room at travelodge in Bangor Maine ! Poor value. Quality Inn in bangor was 90$. Why should we have to pay us prices plus the exchange rate plus tax in canada!? I dont get it? The motel is not imported! Canadians are being ripped off on motels!

Great hotel in Amherst. Great location close to restaurants and shopping. Close to trans Canada. Renovated rooms are really nice. Great beds, linens and pillows. Nice breakfast. Only negative is the loud heating unit on wall. Very noisy! All rooms have them.
