My daughter was on a college visit to Amherst College and I decided to stay at the Black Walnut Inn based on Tripadvisor reviews. Am I glad I did! Ann and staff were so welcoming. There were homemade cookies on the table when I arrived and my room was wonderful. I stayed in the Poet's Room which was extremely clean, spacious and the bathroom had fluffy towels and great water pressure and temperature. When our flight was cancelled and we needed a place to stay the night, the staff offered right away to let me stay in my same room with my daughter at a reduced rate. I have stayed at the UMass hotel before and while it is nice, it is definitely not as cozy and doesn't have the yummy breakfast choices that are included in your stay at the Black Walnut Inn. I highly recommend this to anyone coming to Amherst. It is close to both UMass and Amherst college. I will be staying here every time I am in Amherst in the future!

A delicious homemade breakfast is included with your stay. ... more less
