Stayed here for a week on business. Place was easy to find and check-in was simple. I'd requested a room with a microwave when booking. They didn't put me in one at first, but they switched me. They said there aren't many microwaves in the hotel. The room overall was nice (I had a second floor room near the back). Traffic noise was pretty much non-existent. The air conditioner worked great, but the thermostat I think needs calibration. I set it to 20 degrees on my first night and woke up in the middle of the night with the room at 15 degrees. Setting it at 25 degrees seemed to work just fine though. Microwave and fridge worked fine, clean, and looked new.
Of course, Amherst is small so location is not a huge issue if you have a vehicle, but this place is pretty much across the street from groceries, department stores, gas stations, etc.
Breakfast consisted of cereal/milk, boiled eggs in a fridge, yogurt, and waffle makers. The hot protein alternated between bacon/cheese omelets and sausage/egg patties. Coffee, juice, and water were available. The breakfast room is quite nice, although a little small. Perfect for the 5 to 10 people that were there at 6:30 am, but any more than that and it'd be quite crowded.
Internet was wireless. It was slow at times, but not the worst I've ever had. There's a desk with computer and printer down by the breakfast area. Not a private place, but could be useful if you needed to print something.
Overall, pretty good at this price I felt. As this is the first and only place I've ever stayed in this area, I'm not sure how it compares to the other places.
