The property is in a great location. It is close to UMass and Amherst Center. I found the man at the front desk to be nice and helpful. Unfortunately, our room was extremely warm and the AC did not seem to work. The toilet would also run for about 20 minutes after we flushed it. I think the place could use some updating, but it is otherwise good!
