“OK for an overnight stay”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

This is a rather old property. Rooms are OK (they even have smoking rooms), but everything is old and somewhat run-down. avoid the free breakfast, it's truly horrible. OK for an overnight stay, but don't overdo it!

A fairly typical Comfort Inn - clean, well-appointed, middle-level chain. We were walk-in customers wanting 3 rooms on a summer Friday and found them here. Pleasant front desk staff. WiFi is free and working well. Quiet location, convenient to highway. I would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back seem to be away from the road and quieter.

Great location, clean well-equipped rooms (though it might be nice for them to join the 21st century in terms of technology). Even though the place was filled with dogs for a big dog show, it was still really quiet.

The price-point was tough to swallow. For $100 I've been able to get a room in some great high-end hotels all over the world. How can small town hotels get away with these rates? Bummer, but otherwise recommend this spot.

Room Tip: There's no elevator, so if you're with a lot of luggage stay on the ground floor.

I have stayed in this Comfort inn at least 10 times. It is close to my son's university. They staff is great, rooms (I always get a queen first floor) are comfy and spotlessly clean. The bathroom is decent, good shower and again spotlessly clean. Stay includes a continental breakfast which is always good to get the day going. I have never had a problem and will continue to be a loyal customer!

Room Tip: First floor drive ups are not only convenient but some have fridges and micrwaves

On our way from Halifax, we were caught in a huge snow storm - staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel was very clean, breakfast had a good selection, and the staff were very friendly.

Room Tip: Great place if you need a hotel in the area.

Overall, the Comfort Inn Amherst is a decent option to stay. The beds are comfortable, and while nice enough, the rooms are in need of a bit of an update. It is close to stores, restaurants, gas stations. The front desk staff are both friendly and helpful. Breakfast is complimentary and offers a basic spread - As it's free it's hard to find much fault in it!

Considering the number of 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks in the parking lot at night, a mainstay of business at this hotel are construction workers, contractors, etc. As most are up and out at an early hour, it makes for little noise in the evenings.

If you absolutely cannot handle second-hand smoke, it may not be the best place for you as there are rooms where smoking is permitted and you do notice it on the main floor. The cleaning staff can be a tad overzealous, as on the two occasions I have stayed here, they start at about 7am and there's plenty of racket to go along with it (shutting doors, etc.).

However, if you are looking for a decent stay at a good price, this is a solid option. I wouldn't plan an entire vacation around it, but for the odd night or two this certainly meets my expectations and I will continue to use this hotel when in the area.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel while passing through Amherst to get to Halifax. The service from the front desk was average...the room was clean and roomy but the bed was very uncomfortable! Decent location (right near the major highway) but nothing to do after dark. I would recommend to stay as a pass through hotel but not for more than 1 night.
