Very low weekday cost and proximity to UMass campus was what attracted us to this motel. Very musty smell as soon as we entered so I opened windows.Dead bugs and grime were on the sill between window and screen. Everything was dingy and worn. Sunflower shells next to the bed. Not a deal breaker but a sign that not much... More

The room was clean and comfortable, everything worked, and the lighting was good. The young women in the office were friendly and efficient. Convenient location. No breakfast offered, but we found a pleasant place for breakfast nearby. Would stay there again.

The University Lodge has been around for a long time, and is on the budget end of a bunch of hotels in the area all owned by the same hospitality group. It's one of a handful in the Five College area that accepts pets (for an additional charge), so for those who travel with a companion animal, it goes to... More

This is an older hotel, but it was nice and clean, The staff was very friendly and very accommodating. We asked for 2nd floor because of the reviews that the floors were creaky if you stayed on first floor. We enjoyed our stay here, it was close to downtown and would stay here again.

Oh boy!. If you want to sleep, have a few glasses of wine before you hit the sack or get assurances that nobody is in the room above you. The accommodations are good - two beds, plenty of space to move around and sit, but, the floors in the room above us creaked and whined and made all sorts of... More

Check in was fine. This is very much the traditional, old time motel arrangement (units lead directly to the outside). It seemed to be a little "worn" but well kept. The location is superior - right in between the town of Amherst and UMass itself - walking distance to most everything. Parking was free and easy, room had a refrigerator... More

Location was excellent. Room was fine for our needs. Breakfast Buffett, in all fairness, not a fan of this anywhere. Free parking- terrific. Wi-fi - free and we did not have a problem. Staff - very helpful and friendly. Price- outstanding. Overall, no complaints and at an excellent price.

This is your basic, no frills motel. As long as you understand what to expect, you should be all set. I understood this when I booked it, so I am not complaining. But, I do want to give management feedback that being on the first floor can be annoying as we could easily hear the squeaks in the ceiling when... More

The University Lodge in Amherst was exactly what I read in reviews - clean but a little worn down. For me it did the trick!! The two beds were incredibly comfortable, everything was clean, there were plenty of towels, and the toiletries were great. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. And you cannot get a better deal. Even though... More
