The room was cold heat would not keep up. It was ok the room was not very clean and the beds were in bad shape. We found the TV was old and there was not enough towels for the number of beds. In winter the parking area at the front entrance was not plowed out and the restaurant and lounge... More

My wife and I enjoyed our night at this hotel in Amherst. The reasonably priced room was quite spacious, and very accessible on the ground floor from our vehicle. In addition, we also found our breakfast at the restaurant on the premises to provide both good food & service. We look forward to returning to the hotel again soon!

Booked online for an overnight visit in 2012 and was pleasantly surprised - clean, spacious and reasonably priced. We chose a drive-up room so we could easily load/unload our car. The staff were efficient and courteous and the restaurant was good with friendly wait staff. Because of that visit we booked and stayed again on business in 2013. We found... More

Booked online for overnight stay based on price. Was genuinely and pleasantly surprised at our check in with upgrade to king suite. The clerk was very pleasant and friendly. Had supper at the restaurant, truly a hidden gem. The homemade meals were wonderfully tasty, nice cozy atmosphere and excellent service thanks to our server Janet. I travel for work, and... More

This was our second stay at this hotel. Both times, the rooms were very spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable with lots of pillows. We will definitely be coming back. See you next time we head to Amherst.

Reception not very welcoming. Hotel looked tired. No dining service after 6.30pm that evening and no room service (we were not told about this at time of check.in). Alternative restaurant recommended in Amherst was poor. Next morning staff were very slow to replenish the breakfast buffet.

Do not stay here! Camping is a far better choice than this bug-infested nightmare! The only reason we stayed at Wandlyn's is because everywhere else was booked due to a conference in Amherst. Having no other choice, we checked in with a very surly front desk attendant. We were highly overcharged at $79/night. Don't get me wrong...we spent anywhere from... More

A disappointing review.... Had this guest expressed their dissatisfaction to us directly we would have been able to respond to their complaints while they were still with us. Our hotel was full on this date and the only rooms available were in the "value section" which is a handful of rooms in the smoking section which have not been upgraded... More

We found the price to be very right , the pool to be relaxing and the general atmosphere to be down home country rustic . HOWEVER , we cannot say enough good... More

I recently stayed at the Wandlyn on business. I wanted a cheap hotel for the amount of time I was spending in it. I thought $80 plus tax was a great deal until I arrived. I arrived at 9pm and the first thing I noticed in my room was a spider on the 'crown moulding'. That got me looking for... More
