We booked a suite here to host our daughter's 9th birthday party and sleepover with 2 friends. The kids had a blast in the room and the pool. What kid doesn't love the water slide? The room was a good size with a separate bedroom. It is a great place to stay with or without children.

Not only did all the staff members make us feel like we were part of the family they also welcomed our dog with open arms. He felt very comfortable at this location. The hotel is clean and the staff are amazing.

We travelled this week to Amherst, NS for a figure skating competition, and the Super 8 was recommended to us. The rooms are nice, and well cared for. The front desk staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The pool and waterslide were a hit with the kids! Very nice set up. And the breakfast was quite good :) Couldn't ask...

Location was great for the reason I was in Amherst. On that note, Amherst isn't a wide spread area. I enjoyed the friendly and receptive front desk staff every time we required their assistance; whether we forgot a room key or inquired about our next meal. I had a room on the opposite side of the 'highway' which is said...

A nor'easter was closing in on us. Not going to get home tonight. Travelling from Prince Edward Island to Halifax we decided to try the Amherst Super 8 near the highway to weather out the storm. Great WiFi, beds, clean room, microwave and mini fridge, and the most amazing hot breakfast included. Even more amazing was our car shoveled out...
