“Good stay!”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

Our family stayed here while visiting UMass Amherst. The check in receptionist was so polite, helpful, and informative. The room was clean. We were in walking distance to UMass, and Bertucci's, which was great. There were frat houses and off campus housing all around us but the neighborhood was safe and quiet, all things considered. Fridge was convenient, and we had no problems here. If you're looking for a cozy over-nighter while in Amherst and don't need frills, I would recommend University Lodge.

Room Tip: Upper level behind main reception offers short walk to convenience store and Bertucci's.

Most of the hotels in The area would require a car to be able to get into Amherst center but not this one, you can walk into and out of town with easy. It is also very clean, reasonable, and friendly.

Clean rooms and a great price. Susan at the front-desk mentioned all the rooms will be getting an upgrade to full screen TV. The Wifi signal wasn't that strong, but usable for email (no video streaming). Clean and friendly staff.
No breakfast, but plenty of options downtown.

My husband and I stayed there when we attended Family Weekend at UMass. Proximity to the University is the only positive thing about it. Because it was family weekend, we ended up paying $170 after taxes and fees! It is not clean, musty smell, stained furniture, etc. I don't think the rooms have been updated since the 70's. Would not recommend it!!

Basic, bare bones room. Carpets and furniture are from the Richard Nixon era, or earlier.
But it's under $100 and you can walk to downtown.

Nothing here to attract rock stars or put you in any type of romantic mood.

First room we were assigned to had not been cleaned by housekeeping!

Remember to lock the door!

Room Tip: Upper level is said to have better internet service

Stayed here for a couple of nights as needed to be near the university for start of term. The rooms are okay - bit basic but perfectly good for what we needed for a couple of nights sleep. We were on the upper level - which seemed better. Didn't realise they had the internet until reading the other reviews after. Great location for the university and for walking down the road to main town Amherst, where there is wifi in abundance and a fine range of bars and places to eat. Did find the blankets a little thread bare.

Looking at the reviews, I see a large price difference, which makes sense, between the on-season and the off-season.

There is one gotcha, the office closes at 9pm and the lights go out. But you can check in at 10PM, as we found out, by doing it. We had no idea the office closed at 9 until we arrived.

Room and building are older, but they are comfortable and I didn't have any problems with the housekeeping. Internet is slow, but not impossible, don't bother to try to stream, they haven't the bandwidth.

So I can't say anything about the school year status, but it was fine and rather inexpensive for the summer season. Really no complaints,nothing great, gets +1 for economy.
