We spend the weekend at this great hotel. Breakfast was great and the pool was a nice change to the traditional hotel pool. Large water slide and a little wet zone. The room was large and clean. We all slept well after a day of watching soccer.

Very happy in almost every regard. Great location/amenites. Food was varied and tasty. Only (minor) gripe is the lack of a formal desk for work-related activities.

This hotel is a great place to stay. The rooms were very clean. The staff was professional and helpful. The property is well kept. After traveling for days to reach Nova Scotia, this hotel provided a much needed rest. We will stay here again in the future.

The mattresses in this Motel are marvellous ! What a nice way to end a tiring day on the road. We would, however, like to see grab bars in the shower/tub area ...you don't have to be old to lose your footing in a slippery tub. This is a safety feature that we feel all Motel/Hotels should have installed.

Average Hotel. The beds were comfortable, we had a 2 queen bed room. Come with small bar fridge no freezer. The pool was nice had a 80ft water slide kids enjoyed it plus the kids end had a couple kid features. The water was a tad cold but not to bad. Breakfast was average.

During the period of May 26 to 31 I stayed at the Super 8 in Amherst. The stay was pleasant and comfortable. I like that there is a policy in place not to wash towels and bedding every day if not requested by the guests. At home one would not do this, so why do it at the hotel? Excellent... More

Ok hotel. Clean rooms, pool and very basic breakfast. Do not expect to be wowed. Good option if you must stay in Amherst, but much better options not too far away in Moncton.
