My sister and I went up for the Amherst Valentine Run! The runner's expo was right in the hotel so it was extremely convenient. The hotel breakfast was wonderful and the pillows were so comfy! The wifi didn't work in the morning and the hot tub wasn't really hot, but the stay was still great!

Super 8 in Amherst provided a very pleasant, comfortable, clean safe experience during my recent stay. From the moment I stepped in until I left, I was more than satisfied and would recommend them to anyone.

It is 840 miles from our home in Amherst, Massachusetts to our home on Cape Breton Island. Amherst NS is a good stopping point at about two-thirds of the way. The Super 8 is right by the highway, and offers a very comfortable stop-over with a great breakfast the following morning.
