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

My wife and I spent two nights here and was quite happy with the accommodations and the service. This is not the most modern building but they make the most of what they have. They keep it clean and it's located near everything. Worth another stay when I'm back in Amherst.

This place was clean and nice and the bed was super comfy! The staff were so friendly and the hot breakfast was pretty good. A few different options. That was a nice surprise. I even forgot my Kobo and they mailed it back to me. Very nice place to stay.
