I stayed here solo for a week while working in the area, and staff were friendly and helpful, arranging for our needs to be met for making a home base away from home. Initially our rooms had no fridge or microwave, which makes life difficult when on a prolonged stay, but maintenance was prompt about delivering these things to us... More

I originally booked the Wandlyn Inn because my family used to stay there when I was a little girl. I have very fond memories from days gone by... What a shocker... My first clue should have been was when I was handed what appeared to be an original room key from the 1970's... Upon entering the room, I was met... More

The room itself was okay. Snow came in through the air conditioning unit and therefore the room was cold. Customer service was horrible. We woke to a snow storm and we could not get out and they refused to call the plow. When I checked in they tried to refuse us the room I booked 2 months ago stating it... More

Convenient location just off the highway. If you're going to be driving to Amherst a lot, there are actually other (and probably more expensive) places that are closer. Pleasant staff. My room was a drive-up room, which made it feel like a motel. However, I didn't mind this as it meant I was really close to my car. There was... More

We stayed at this Wandlyn for 2 nights because it is very close to the area we were working for the weekend. Check in was quick and easy, our room was a drive up which we requested. We had our 2 dogs traveling with us and they were very welcome - there was a big grassy area right behind our... More

Amherst is a popular area, and this Wandlyn Inn is an economical option for lodgings. It is clean and safe, the staff is friendly, and our drive-up room on the ground/parking level was convenient. However, it has become a bit shabby and could use some sprucing-up. The included continental breakfast was very limited. We ate dinner here the 2 nights... More

Have stayed here a couple of times in the last month. Great clean rooms. Awesome staff. Not sure about the food. We haven't had a chance to eat here. Great clean rooms. Slept very well on our king sized bed
