I came to Amherst to do family history research and decided at the last minute to stay overnight. The lady at the library recommended I go to a chain motel in Lynchburg. Clearly she didn't realize this little gem was right down the road.

I was able to park right outside my door. The decor in the Queen room is pleasant, tidy and modern, and there is still room for a dining table with two chairs by the window, a desk and chair by the bed, a little bar with coffee supplies, a microwave, fridge and complimentary treats.
