We decided to stop because the driving was deteriorating and we had lost daylight. If I could review the Mini Cooper we rented, let me say - terrible car. The tires were fine, but the road noise, interior dash, the absolutely stupid heater and the constantly icing up wipers were a danger! Back to the Comfort Inn, thanks for reading... More

We stayed at The Comfort Inn in Amherst for three nights in the middle of June when we were touring this part of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. The motel is close to highway 104 and is easy to find. There’s ample parking and the motel is close to many restaurants, shopping areas and gas stations. We had a room... More

Stayed at the Comfort Inn Sept 8, 9 and 10. Great stay. Clean room. Staff is awesome. I stay there every time I am in NS and have never had a bad stay yet. The acting GM and staff make you feel like you belong there. I would recommend this Motel to any one.

Upon arriving in Nova Scotia, the Comfort Inn, Amherst was a welcome sight after ten hours of driving. I travel to Cape Breton annually and am always seeking a pet-friendly place to overnight on the way. This newly-renovated Comfort Inn certainly fit the bill. We arrived after ten PM and the woman at the desk was quite helpful in getting... More

first room had had a smoker in it and smelled, the management was not happy and we found ourselves in their one suite. nice upgrade, and lots of room. Families should definitely think about this room. Breakfast was standard comfort inn fair.... we did not partake.

We had driven the Cabot Trail and we were headed to Prince Edward Island the next day. So this was the right town to stop in, and the Comfort Inn seemed like a reasonable choice. It barely was, but it did the job. We had a good night's sleep, and breakfast was fine. But the hotel needs work, as it... More

The Inn was easy to find, across the street from a gas station, off the main highway. It was very clean and everything in the room worked fine. Patio door to the outside which makes it easy to unload the baggage.

Spent one night here. Good value for the price. Room was big and beds were very comfortable (my boyfriend and I have opposite needs for firmness yet we both slept great). Would stay again. Also pet friendly....which is a huge plus for us although they (as well assist other hotels) changed extra.
