Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This was my second stay in Amherst but first with Comfort Inn University. Honestly, such a bad decision! I wish I went to the hotel I stayed in during my first visit. Comfort Inn was so dirty, unsanitary (which is incredibly problematic given the pandemic), rude/careless staff... overall terrible experience. Never going back.

Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service
The front lobby is under construction so you have to enter through a side door. There was no signage asking guests to wear masks nor any evidence or signage indicating that they were doing enhanced cleaning for Covid. Room was comfortable but in need of an update. Hotel seemed a little short staffed. We were told that rooms were no going to be cleaned on a daily basis. This may have been done to protect housekeeping staff.

Great place for the price
For the price this was a great place. Staff was super helpful. They were under construction but it didn't affect my stay. The rooms were really quiet which was great.
