The staff was pleasant, the room was comfortable and clean, wi-fi worked great, coffee was available. They should have the air conditioners cleaned out by a professional. It made me sneeze. I'm guessing they don't change the filters. Otherwise, a really great deal.

The TV did not work at all. There was no signal and I kept losing internet connection on my laptop. The dust build up on the air conditoner was awful. There was also hole in the blinds I had to cover with a towel.

What kind of hotel doesn't staff its office after

I arrived in Amherst at 11pm via bus from NYC, only to discover that the University Lodge front office had been closed down earlier in the evening. A sign on the door told me I'd have to pick up my room key from a hotel that was 4 miles away, on the other side of Amherst. As it happened, the person working the desk of the other hotel didn't answer the phone until I let the phone ring for 10 minutes. Since I didn't arrive by car I then had to spend $25 hiring a taxi to drive the 8-mile round trip just to pick up my University Lodge room key. All this just to get into a room I'd booked and paid for a month earlier. This is an asinine way to run a hotel key system.

Simple motel-like hotel, with few ammenities. Great location for visiting UMass or other schools, and easy access into the town of Amherst.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Simple and austere, but with a great location. Friendly staff. WiFi was a problem in the room we were in, and we had to go sit outside the office to get service.

This is an older Motel like setting but it was clean and very close to the college and down town. So it was just right for the money.

Pros: Close restaurants
Staff was accomodating, Room was clean although old fashioned, bathroom was clean and the room had a frig. The motel is very close to UMass which was perfect and a walking distance to everything down town which included restaurants, CVS, etc. I would reccomend it.
