I was doing a bit of a drive around in that part of Nova Scotia and found that Amherst was a handy location for overnight accommodation. I found the staff at the Comfort Inn helpful, friendly and flexible. The room was very comfortable and the bed wonderful. I tend to judge accommodation by the attitude of the staff running it,...

Positives: The location was very close to a grocery store, places to eat, etc. The room was very clean and in nice condition, no complaints there at all. The beds were comfy, we had a great sleep. Negatives: The woman working the "free hot breakfast" was nasty and extremely rude. We dared to ask for a second sausage (because you... More

One night stay here. Found to be very expensive ($179) for what we received but admit bed was comfortable. Had air conditioning on to discover carpet soaking wet in the morning, hence the odour when we arrived the day before. Breakfast area quite small and usual hotel fare offered including eggs and sausage. Rating a 3* at best.

this is your standard Comfort Inn. it's clean & has all the basics. Very nice staff & very helpful. I like that we could park outside the door. you have all kinds of fast food options & also a Sobey's. the Inn is just off the 104, so it was easy on & off. off to try the breakfast.

We were a family of 5. Nothing fancy standard hotel,standard breakfast but not very good coffee. Staff were pleasant and helpful. There are a few things to see around Amherst but we were on our way home. Good location close and convenient to the highway.

Comfort Inns are at the low end of mid-priced hotels. That said, it was fine for our purpose. We arrived late innthe evening and checked out by 9 the following morning. A hot but undistinguished breakfast was provided. Beds were comfortable, and rooms and public areas were very clean.
