If you need a place to stay for a night or two in Amherst, Virginia and get good sleep, this is the place, at least it was for us in late July 2015. No pool or anything like that, but the price was very good. The beds and other furnishings were clean, neat, in good repair and simple, but good... More

We stayed here during a sightseeing trip of Schuyler, VA. We found the beds to be really comfortable. Rooms are small, but nice. The staff was very friendly. There is a McDonalds right across the street and a CVS very close. After leaving the hotel my husband discovered he had left his cell phone charger. The staff was very courteous... More

Dunno what hotel the one bad reveiw from 2011 stayed at, this place is great. Inexpensive, clean and good amenities. You could have bigger rooms if you want to pay twice the price or more. Ehy does this site want 200 words, is it an essay contest? Sorry gotta fill the rest of the space with these: a a a... More

This is an old-fashioned quiet motel, situated below the road so you don't hear any traffic. Since there is no sauna nor swimming pool, you won't have late-night crowds partying by your window. The room was comfortable and rather cool. Breakfast included very nice fresh clementines, bananas, mini cinnamon rolls etc. It's not a posh hotel, but the price is... More

Needed a room for one night and this was right next to where I was going in the morning. Room was clean, smelled a bit funny, with no frills. Heating/cooling unit in wall worked well but was noisy. When the fan wasn't blowing, the unit would click, making it difficult to sleep undisturbed. Bed was fine, not the worst, definitely... More

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.
