My overall experience at the Amherst Inn was very good. The room was exceptionally clean, the beds comfortable, nice little set up with microwave and small refrigerator. Bathroom was spotless, everything was in tip top shape. The shower is small, but that did not bother me or my husband. The TV was nice and the breakfast, just danish, muffins, OJ... More

Stayed during family weekend at Liberty University. The place was quaint, locally owned and well taken care of. The bed was comfy but a little short. The room was small but cozy. The shower was hot but very small for someone my size. We had no complaints. The room was clean and cleaned in between our stay. Would stay here... More

Very clean, comfortable room. The room is small, but well-appointed. The beds were comfortable and the refrigerator and microwave were a nice convenience. It was within 6 miles of Rebec Vineyards making it good place to stay after the wine and garlic festival. Overall, a great value for the money.

Since it was so inexpensive I was pleasantly surprised by all the Amherst Inn provided. It exceeded all our expectations, very clean, extremely comfortable beds, very friendly staff, and very quiet surroundings. Only negative is the shower is a little tight Will definitely stay here again.

This is a classic old school motel. The room was clean, and the desk clerk was friendly. But the room was tiny, the air stuffy and dank. It did have a pretty new wall mounted TV and a clean small fridge. My room had two double beds and I climbed in one, but it had an awful odor, so I... More

It's not a five star hotel (big and grand) but I gave it five because for where it was and what they did with it, it is five star. Nicely remodeled with all the basic things needed in a room at a great price. If you want big and grand go somewhere else and pay double. If you want five... More

My partner and I did a weekend getaway from DC to visit Monticello and some wineries. This little inn/motel was the perfect place! It was reasonably priced, close to most things, clean, quiet and overall a good value. Highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in this area!

Stayed there for a long weekend. Was a little concerned at first, because the outside of the motel had several projects underway. It was hard to tell if they were working hard to get it spruced up or just didn't get any of their project finished. But the room was absolutely gorgeous! Clean, neat and very inviting. Even the bathroom... More

The hotel has been remodeled and is pleasant to stay. The staff are excellent. We left my husband's cane in the room and the owner/manager called me to let us know they found it and would hold it at the desk until I could come back later that day.
