We booked a room at Holiday Inn-Blacksburg on 10/28/14 for our stay on 05/2/15 to move our daughter home from college. We received a confirmation email today, THREE DAYS before our trip, with a different confirmation number. Upon contacting Holiday Inn customer service we were advised that this Holiday Inn is no longer a member of the Holiday Inn chain... More

Our family continues to stay at the Holiday Inn Blacksburg when we visit our daughter who attends Virginia Tech. We're tried other hotels, and this hotel is our favorite. Pricing, IHG points, location, cleanliness, staff, amenities, and service - they've got it all. My only recommendation is to change out the Folger's coffee.

We went here last minute because the other hotel we tried to stay at (Main Street Inn) had a pipe burst and flooded in the winter hotel storm. And we were very pleasantly surprised! The Holiday Inn was much cheaper, had plenty of parking, had a restaurant and bar with a very friendly bartender, and a free breakfast that was... More

Our non-profit organization frequently schedules meetings at this location for a catered dinner and presentation from a guest speaker. The staff is always very attentive to our needs, the food is always very good, and we've enjoyed having our meetings here. I highly recommend this location!

The overall quality of the stay was very good. The staff from the front desk to room service to the restaurant to the lounge went above and beyond to accommodate our needs whether business or personal. The only areas that I had issues with are the noise levels on the rooms exposed to the street sides and the beds were... More

Hotel rooms are just ok. Rooms were updated but only a 3 star at best. Great proximity to VT. Wonderful helpful staff. Nice football tailgate for guests staying at hotel. Heard that this hotel would be torn down soon to make way for 2 hotels on this large piece of real estate.

We've stayed at this location a number of times because of it's close proximity (within walking distance actually) to VT and have never been disappointed. If I were to have a complaint it would have to be that continental breakfast is not covered with an overnight stay. The restaurant is nice. The food and service are both very good with... More

When we checked in Alex at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful. He took the time to explain everything and to call us by name. A lot of people were checking in simultaneously, but he streamlined the process efficiently!

The Customer Service is exceptional - very accommodating and friendly. However, the room I was in was seeing its age - wall covering below sprinkler head was torn along its vertical seam; and the door to the room didn't seem to have a tight fit within the jamb and header. It closed securely and locked, but there was a gap... More
