Enjoyed our stay at the Inn. The owners are very nice and helpful in every way. The room was very clean with comfortable beds and pillows. The Inn reflects the charming, friendly nature of the town. You can't go wrong if you are looking for safe, convenient, comfortable accommodations at a reasonable price.

The Amherst Inn is all that it advetises to be. The online photos give a good depiction. It is spotless--very, very clean. The rooms were decorated nicely and there were ample amenities. My spouse and I seek out the "old style" motels, but you have to be cautious. The Amherst did not disappoint in any way. It is close to... More

We found the Amherst Inn late one night..just hoping for "clean", we found it quiet, convenient, a great price, and clean. In town for a wedding, we opted to stay two nights. Would definitely recommend. A great find. To the owners/managers: Thank You!

I was looking place to sleep for couple hours and found this place online. The reviews made me go there and see how the place looked. I had my family with me and safety, clean place was really important at that time. I was surprised and definitely recommended.

Don't be fooled by the initial impression. The Amherst Inn is one of those little traveler's motels built in about the 1940s on what were the main roads (before interstates). Most of them aren't a place I'd stay nowadays; but this one has been completely updated and is extremely clean, quiet and delightful. It even feels and smells clean. I've... More

This was an inexpensive old but clean Mom and Pop type place. Wi-Fi was available as was a good selection of tv channels. McDonalds was across the street. This was all that was necessary for my trip. *********************************************************************8

The heater/AC in wall unit is very loud. Luckily we had an electric blanket with us. Room was very cold at check in and had to go somewhere and let it warm up. Back to change clothes and 15 minutes late to our appt. No continental breakfast of any note. OK for one night for the price. CPW

OK, so I had not very high expectations....having suffered in other rural motels with no chain name attached. So I was pleasantly surprised by the value for the money. Came here to be ahead of the weather one night. It's locally owned by pleasant people, clean and safe (the police station is just around the corner). McDonald's is right across... More

Four of us recently stayed at the Amherst inn in Amherst, VA while on a hunting trip. The rooms were small, but very clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were also small, but clean with plenty of hot water. We had a refrigerator in the room which we kept beer and softdrinks in. The motel owners were very friendly. Several local... More
