Our stay was hospital related and the location was super easy to find and the commute minimal.The rates were extremely favorable for a situation such as ours and much appreciated. We will definitely recommend this location to our friends and neighbors. Thanks

Arriving fairly late (maybe 9:30pm) I had to search for a staff member to check-in, but once I did, our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We were also on the ground floor, making it easy to bring in our bags. Although the hotel overlooks the highway -- and provides earplugs! -- we were not disturbed by any highway noise.... More

Our room and overall service was very good. Our complaint concerned the swimming pool. This was a Saturday and it was full of local kids, unsupervised, lots of noise, etc., underage kids in the hottub with no adults, etc. We asked the front desk when there would be time for adults only & were informed, "after 8PM". We had plans... More

First I would like to apologize for the no use of the pool that you had. On our slower nights the pool is open to the public. After 8 pm is hotel guest only. Did you mention to the front desk agent there we children in the hotetub? As they would have requested the children to get out so you... More

The Amherst Super 8 is a fairly good place to stay while in Amherst. The rooms a clean and comfortable and it has an elevator for transporting your luggage. Our room was at the back, away from the road, so highway noise wash't a problem for us. However, there was a family with children on the floor above us and... More

Overall one of the best of the super 8's that I have stayed at. The beds and room was in good shape and the breakfast in the morning was better than normal. This is a place I would stay again.

The Super 8 Amherst was quite nice, but the room we stayed in is starting to show its age. The desk chair had frayed covering and the couch definitely looked older. The walls are a little thin and hotel leaves earplugs for you to use. The rest of the room was fantastic. The bed was one of the most comfortable... More

No major complaints other than we requested a room facing away from the highway and not near the elevator. Our room did face the highway and was directly across the hall from the elevator. The hotel does provide ear plugs so they are aware of the highway noise. The room was clean & the beds were comfortable. Did not use... More

Thank you for your review on your most recent stay. I am very sorry that you did not have the room location where you requested. I tried to look for you to note in your profile back of the house and away from an elevator in the event you are staying again, I do not have enough info to know... More
