Very poor looking, run down, nice and friendly staff and close to the highway but other than that not worth the stay , very poor breakfast, frozen bagel and cookie and not enough coffee, very poor setting. expensive for what you get. They are renovating so hopefully they will improve on it.

I would like to come here next year when it's finished renovations. Currently it's a little time warn however the staff is super friendly and eager to help. Despite outward appearance the interior is very clean. Accommodating bikers put us in a room with their bikes out front.

We have stayed here many times over the last 20 years. Stayed here 3 and2 years ago and noticed both times it was going downhill. This time we think it had hit rock bottom. The pool was closed and will not open for maybe a year and the dining room had just reopened for dinner but the menu was not... More

I enjoyed my stay At the Wandlyn in Amherst. We were there for play which was performing right in the hotel property. While the rooms were small, they were well equipped with a mini fridge, free wi-fi, small table and a decent sized bathroom. The staff were very accommodating and the hotel is 60 seconds off the highway, yet removed... More

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
