It was dated and the decor was blah. Some renovations need to be made like paintes walls or refinished tubs in the bathroom. It was basic. Nothing more, nothing less.

For the money, the hotel was very good. Not so nice odor in hallway Room was clean but very outdated. Same for bathroom. On the positive side, the bed and pillows very surprisingly comfortable. Service was very good. Breakfast was just OK. Not much variety. Very basic. Overall, a pleasant experience.

Moldy shower

Pros: The location. Games in the lobby and a book exchange
Cons: clean up the shower, a little bleaching should do the trick. It would be an expense to renovate the bathroom.-You get what you pay for.
Location: The location was great. Shopping, hiking, restaurants and University of Mass, Amherst are close.
The shower had black mold in it and the bottom of the tub was very discolored, towels were not very nice, the bathroom was very dated and cheaply done. This was a real turn off. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The evening staff was not very welcoming but the morning staff could not have been nicer. It would have been wonderful if they had herbal teas. It was so nice that they had games in the lobby area and a book exchange. The continental breakfast was not the best. The rates were good-I guess you get what you pay for.

Filthy, rundown, overpriced.

The room we stayed in at this hotel was not clean. The toilet had a ring around the water bowl, and I k ow it takes a few weeks for that to happen. And while in the shower, I noticed someone else's contact lense was stuck to the wall. Yuck! We got into town late and were checking out very early, so switching hotels was not an option. So when I checked out I told the desk person that the room was filthy and she just said 'thanks for telling me.' No sorry, no consolation, and certainly no discount on the rate, which was very high considering the type of accommodation and the location.
