I have stayed here twice in the last 4 yrs during technical conferences in October. Renovations occurred a few years back, so the rooms are modern and clean. Bedroom area is fine with an ethernet cable for (not wireless) Internet. Windows can open! Bathrooms are very small but the shower is great, well lighted and roomy. Front desk service is very good and they have a simple but decent continental breakfast. Not that I am a TV nut, but the TV reception and remote response are feeble. It looks like a nice HD TV, but the picture is pretty bad and the remote has a time lag. And this has been the case in different rooms and different dates.
A big plus is that the hotel is dead center in campus and easy to get anywhere. If you want to go into Amherst, you do need a car.
All in all a good place, only suggestion would be to get wireless and find another cable TV supplier.
