The front desk staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The pool and waterslide were a hit with the kids! Very nice set up. And the breakfast was quite good :) Couldn't ask...

A nor'easter was closing in on us. Not going to get home tonight. Travelling from Prince Edward Island to Halifax we decided to try the Amherst Super 8 near the highway to weather out the storm.

The hotel was under renovations during my stay, but did not inconvenience me in the least. I think the new colors chosen by the hotel are an improvement. Can't wait to see it when it is done. See you in the Spring!
