You get much more than you expect when booking this hotel. We booked a stay at the Amherst Inn to visit family that live in Amherst and crossed our fingers because we have stayed at other small hotels in tiny towns and had some bad experiences. This one was well worth the money! It is clean and updated. The rooms...

Stayed as a solo traveler in early December. Was impressed with the cleanliness, and quality of the upgrades that had been done. Definitely a bargain! Other reviewer spoke of road noise. I didn't think that was an issue. Would definitely stay here again if I'm ever passing through.

My title says it all. We would not hesitate staying a week or more here, if we had something to do in the area. Our visit was two days to visit our son for Thanksgiving, when there wasn't room for everyone at their house. This is one of those older motels, but renovated to modern standards, and they did a...

My overall experience at the Amherst Inn was very good. The room was exceptionally clean, the beds comfortable, nice little set up with microwave and small refrigerator. Bathroom was spotless, everything was in tip top shape. The shower is small, but that did not bother me or my husband. The TV was nice and the breakfast, just danish, muffins, OJ...

Stayed during family weekend at Liberty University. The place was quaint, locally owned and well taken care of. The bed was comfy but a little short. The room was small but cozy. The shower was hot but very small for someone my size. We had no complaints. The room was clean and cleaned in between our stay. Would stay here...

Very clean, comfortable room. The room is small, but well-appointed. The beds were comfortable and the refrigerator and microwave were a nice convenience. It was within 6 miles of Rebec Vineyards making it good place to stay after the wine and garlic festival. Overall, a great value for the money.

Since it was so inexpensive I was pleasantly surprised by all the Amherst Inn provided. It exceeded all our expectations, very clean, extremely comfortable beds, very friendly staff, and very quiet surroundings. Only negative is the shower is a little tight Will definitely stay here again.

This is a classic old school motel. The room was clean, and the desk clerk was friendly. But the room was tiny, the air stuffy and dank. It did have a pretty new wall mounted TV and a clean small fridge. My room had two double beds and I climbed in one, but it had an awful odor, so I...

We appreciate your feedback. We are sorry you were not pleased with your room. We shampooed the carpets in the previous days of your arrival and tried our best to dry the rooms but it still wasn't and we are very sorry for your experience. The mattresses are Beauty Rest from Serta about 2 years old but since then we...

It's not a five star hotel (big and grand) but I gave it five because for where it was and what they did with it, it is five star. Nicely remodeled with all the basic things needed in a room at a great price. If you want big and grand go somewhere else and pay double. If you want five...
