WOW!! and WOW again, I can't believe the surprise walking into our room. The outside is retro 60's motel I remember from my youth and the inside is "5 star New York City Hilton Hotel". My wife and I were amazed you got so much 1st Class luxury in such a small comfortable room. If such a thing as a "6 Star" motel, I would given you that. Thank you Amherst Inn for making our stay such a memorable/comfortable two nights. We hope to return again real soon. Howard & Beverly P., Wilson, NC.

What a delightful find! Thoughtful details, comfy bed, we were so glad we booked ahead for our trip to Ankida Ridge. Thanks for having us!

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed! The attention to detail and comfort is amazing. Seriously, from a variety of complimentary snacks to the remote control for the ac/heater to the comfortable bed to the fluffy towels to just everything. Even in the bathroom, the amenities were placed in a cute basket attached to the wall...and included toothbrush, toothpaste, a razor, shaving cream, as well as the usual soaps and shampoos. The room is very clean and, although small, very cozy. One can see all the small touches the owners have made to make this feel more like a guest room in a friend’s home rather than another hotel room. I cannot recommend the Amherst Inn highly enough.

We loved your Inn so much we just wanted to tell you! After sitting on I-81 in western VA for 5 hours on Oct 20th, and having to drastically change our travel plans, finding your Inn was wonderful! It felt like home. We loved everything about it. All of those thoughtful little extras such as the basket of snacks, the easy-to-forget items in the bathroom and the little 'library' of novels and magazines. Would have loved to stay longer but had a very long drive back North/East in the morning. Thank You for going the extra mile in creating such a cozy and comfortable room! The Millers in CT

Very clean! Comfortable bed. The rooms are small but the cleanliness & comfortable bed more than makes up for that. There’s WiFi, frig, microwave, heat & air, coffee pot, hair dyer & more. For an overnight stay I was very pleased and would return if I was in the area again.

This is the best mom and pop old school motel! You park at your door and the rooms are immaculate! Not large but so comfortable. We usually stay at one of the large chain hotels but we will be back here.

Really loved my stay here! So used to the chains and was a bit skeptical about a retro style motel but would absolutely stay here again. Complimentary water and snacks in the room makes a huge difference to me.

My husband and I stayed at the Amherst Inn on Saturday, November 10. We had such an enjoyable stay, he said he'd like to move in! Great bed. Great shower. Lots of tv channels. Loved that there were a microwave and a fridge plus lots of nice little touches - snacks, books to read, a night light in the bathroom and ceramic coffee mugs. We would definitely stay there again and will recommend it to anyone traveling on 29 through Virginia.

We have stayed here for quite a few years now. We love it here. The owners are so friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay a welcome and pleasant stay.. it doesn’t hurt that the rooms are clean and pleasant when you go in. I recommend this hotel to anyone coming this direction.

My stay was a wonderful experience. I was in Lynchburg for work and it was such a blessing to return home at night to such a comfortable, well-appointed quarters. The room featured many comforts and amenities that I no longer expect even at standard hotel chains, and some that were a delightful surprise (e.g., complimentary bottled water and snacks, additional toiletries such as toothbrush). But the most outstanding feature of my stay was the very helpful local information and spirit of warm hospitality communicated through your “Welcome Book” for guests. This feature alone made me feel like I was staying in an upscale country inn or B&B. The housekeeping service was also excellent and attention to every detail extremely impressive. I hope to return one day, and in the meantime thank you for your kind hospitality and service. Wishing you much continued success.
