The staff are friendly and accommodating. The rooms are decent. The breakfast leaves a lot to be desired. The coffee in the room is very good.

I was very impressed with the size of the rooms and the way it was organized. The bed was comfy and I almost left, buying the pillow which they have for sale at $30. It was my first time sleeping in Amherst so I didn't really know where to go. The free breakfast was a great bonus and I regret...

An average motel in this chain. The exceptional thing was the fall decorations of pumpkins and scarecrows around. Service professional. The pool is quite cool and the depth suitable for children, even a water slide. It had a washer and dryer. Declined their breakfast and ate elsewhere.
