The hotel was a convenient location for the event we attended but it was just odd to be in the middle of the campus with students arriving for the new semester. Albeit comfortable and clean it was nothing special. Wish the hotel had its own restaurant for guests rather than the cafeteria service on the lower level.

Stayed there during New Student Orientation. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Bathroom was small. o exhaust fan in the bathroom for after-shower humidity. That was a disappointment with the price of the room. Room itself was nicely appointed. No surprises besides the lack of a fan.

This one's on campus. After hours of travel it would be nice to be able to pull up to the front of the hotel, check in, and unload your car. No such luck - you are forced to park in a lot in an adjacent building and either wait for a golf cart or lug your things yourself 800 feet... More

So, UMass campus isn't scenic. However, there are very few hotels in this area. Room wasn't huge, but everything was new. The tv was flat, large, mounted and had an excellent picture. There was keurig coffee/tea maker in the room. The room could have used easier access to charging outlets. The breakfast had excellent fresh pastries and I enjoyed the... More

I chose this hotel because unlike some of the more quaint area options, it said it had a fitness center. My daughter and I were touring Amherst College. Well the fitness center is closed during the summer. So we were stuck in this breathtakingly ugly building for no reason. The room was unobjectionable but this was no bargain given the... More

We booked here to visit Amherst College. It was perfect for that. Very close to that campus. Serves a very simple breakfast but mostly organic, so nice enough. Rooms and bathroom very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. I arrived late with my 2 teen girls and the parking garage was eerily empty of attendants, and the elevator was not... More

We stayed in the summer and it was just right for us. Rooms are definitely not roomy, but they are big enough for 2. Neat and clean, recently remodeled. Wall mounted TV, spring water, keurig machine with coffee, hair dryer, makeup mirror, etc. No bath tub, was not indicated in reservation, not a big deal for me, but for others,... More

I always like to have a pub directly at the hotel when I travel. They have a pub but it is only open when college is in (full) session. This should be made more clear when booking. They do have 8 (more ??) restaurants directly inside the hotel but when checking in, the staff should alert guests that they literally... More

I have attended the New England Camera Council Conference for many years. We were arriving a day ahead and were able to get a room at the hotel. It was a comfortable room, we were 3 people, had a rolling bed. This was not the best arrangement as there was not much room for the bed. They did have a... More

I guess I was expecting a bit more from a hotel that was given such high ratings by other folks that stayed there. I do travel quite a bit for business and have stayed at places that were significantly better for the same price. The hotel rooms looked more like a hospital. The breakfast was stale with no variety.
