We spent a Saturday night here. This B & B has eight rooms spread over three adjacent houses. It's well-managed, and the location in Blacksburg is perfect---in a quiet residential area, but only a 5 minute walk to Virginia Tech and 5-10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants along Main Street. There is a small pool here, which makes... More

Excellent accomodations. Good parking. Breakfast was yummy. Very comfortable bed. Nice people. Serene setting with many amenities. Within walking distance to Main Street and a variety of restaurants. A hidden gem.

This was our second time at the Clay Corner Inn. We stayed in the Blacksburg Suite. The room was nice and clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great. We just stayed overnight for one night - but this would be a great suite for a long stay.

Absolutely wonderful little inn, with surprises at every turn -- breakfast under the trellis if you feel like it -- afternoon swim in their big pool if the heat is getting to you -- evening meditation in the little Zen Garden -- chat with Vicki (the owner) with equal ease about vacuum cleaners or Barcelona (Spain) -- a library that...

My wife and I booked a room on July 19th and 20th to attend the Virginia Tech orientation program since our son will be attending in August. This was our first time staying at Clay Corner Inn. We had researched the websites and initially chose the inn based on its location and reviews. Let me tell you, we could not... More

Hosts are friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Convenient to the VT campus southeast corner, would be great for sporting events, and an easy walk to downtown. I'll stay here again soon!

My husband and I have recently stayed at the Clay Corner Inn on 2 different occasions and it was fabulous! I can't say enough about the ambiance, wonderful hosts Nicky & Rick, and their staff. The rooms were exceptionally clean, cozy and inviting, the shared kitchen, living room and computer access was terrific. The "comphy" sheets on the bed were... More

We stayed at this lovely Inn for five days in June. Its location right in the center of town and a short walk to campus makes it incredibly convenient, but the real reason I recommend it is hospitality of the inn keepers. They are warm and welcoming in every way. Our room was so comfortable and clean, the pool was... More

Another cozy stay at Clay Corner Inn. Nice location! Nice rooms! Many conveniences like shared kitchens and separate family rooms that you don't get at most B&B's. Complimentary soft drinks. Nicky, Rick and staff always make you feel at home!
