I would like to acknowledge Glenda. Glenda went above and beyond her duties to make us feel welcome and at home. She was very friendly with the other guests, making them feel at home as well, not only with her serving breakfast, but also making conversation with them. Thank you for all that you do. You are a true hospitality... More

Well, I will say this if you are doing your booking for this place try not to do it through hotels.com or another reservation website, as they make you pay more and if you have to check out early causes more issues than solves. Other than that though HOLY CRAP this place is really nice and clean and the staff... More

I have stayed here many times. Sometimes for work related travel and other times when off on my own journeys. One thing remains constant: this is always a pleasant stop on the way. Conveniently located, clean - and the staff are above and beyond. Breakfast was also a big plus!

We were upgraded to a better room because they didn't give discounts for seniors or honour CAA. I would hate to see the original room. Ours was dirty, little pieces of paper on the floor and I doubt if the rug under the bed has ever been vacuumed. There was only one towel and face cloth on the rack and... More

My wife was on a training class in Amherst so I decided to tag along with her. This hotel was really clean and we really loved the service here. For the price it is well worth the stay and we would go back.

Was caught in bad weather and was fortunate to get a room at the Comfort inn. Staff here went out of their way to make guests feel welcome. Place had had a recent makeover. Was extremely clean. it's not a new building by any means, but they've made it very comfortable. Would stay again.

While this Comfort Inn may not include a pool or fitness room, it is an excellent value for the money. The rooms are clean and well-kept, the staff is friendly and very helpful and the free breakfast is outstanding. You can tell a lot about a place by looking at their breakfast offerings and this establishment is first rate. Bacon,... More
