For a chain hotel, this Amherst Comfort Inn was very nice. The rooms have been done over and everything was clean and new. The bed was very comfortable as was the love seat. The hot breakfast -- scrambled eggs and bacon was better than you usually get in hotels. The pancakes were also tastier than other hotels'. The lobby and... More

The people at the Comfort Inn - Amherst are doing things right. The place isn't going to be confused for a fancy resort, but it's way above average for the Comfort Inn brand for sure. The location was convenient, we parked easily, were checked in very quickly by friendly front desk staff, and went up to our clean and comfortable... More

Super comfy bed. Best sleep on our entire vacation. Nice to have a fridge in the room, when you aren't expecting one. Breakfast included the usual dry cereals, breads, yougurt etc., and a cheese omelette with bacon!!!! I was surprised at the number of people in the breakfast room, because it had seemed so quiet throughout the night I didn't... More

Stayed here for a week on business. Place was easy to find and check-in was simple. I'd requested a room with a microwave when booking. They didn't put me in one at first, but they switched me. They said there aren't many microwaves in the hotel. The room overall was nice (I had a second floor room near the back).... More

Great sheets. CLEAN!!! Comfy beds. Corridors Immaculate. Bedside lamp inadequate for reading but was overcome by moving the desk lamp. Breakfast was best skipped. It will definitely be my choice of accommodations from now on when in the area. No disappointments here. Good price too.

Just a clean room, no pool, no amenities, mediocre breakfast. This hotel has been recently renovated, so it is fresh condition. Refrigerators in room are a nice touch. Staff is friendly. Fast food and a local family restaurant within walking distance.

As senior citizens traveling with 2 heavy suitcases and two heavy computer bags, we had booked a first floor room, and paid extra for the privilege as this facility has no elevator. When we arrived, we were told they did not have any available rooms on the first floor, which we had reserved. Too bad, but reservations were not really... More

The hotel recently has been renovated similar to other Comfort Inn's elsewhere, with the room decor still looking to be cookie cutter in appearance. Our room was clean, but not particularly inviting, and the lighting either interfered with the television due to reflection or, when the bed lamp was not on, the desk lamp didn't provide sufficient light to read....
