Coming to Clay Corner Inn, Nicky immediately made us feel at home. You were pampered but felt like one of the family at the same time. The property and rooms are beautiful and relaxing. The morning breakfast was fabulous - healthy but oh so delicious!!! The afternoon cookies were a delight. :-D Being within walking distance to Virginia Tech University... More

Found this B&B when attempting to find a room to accommodate my husband and I and our daughter near VT. Glad to have found it. Very nice location within walking distance of campus (real close to the stadium and coliseum. You have access to a real kitchen so you can make your own meals if you'd like. The breakfast provided...

Let me tell you, your daughter was so polite.... good job as parents! We too enjoyed having you with us and I'm pleased you didn't get to enjoy the pool this time because hopefully it'll make you want to return sooner to do so :-) We look forward to greeting you then. More

We booked the Cascades Suite for our son's freshman orientation at Virginia Tech. The Clay Corner Inn is conveniently located just a couple of blocks from the campus and from Main St, where there are many restaurants to choose from. We walked everywhere on our trip. While this is all great, what makes this a place to recommend is the... More

Everything about this place is fantastic...location, comfort, food, rooms! The owners are very sweet. Got me hooked on Comphy Co. sheets. Makes you feel right at home, the food was fantastic and everything you need in downtown Blacksburg is in walking distance!

The hospitality was superb and we couldn't have asked for a better place. While it is just a B&B, it is just as good as any hotel if not even better. Definitely recommended to anyone in the area. The breakfast was more than I could ever ask for! Absolutely delicious. Will definitely come back next time we visit.

We try to stay here every time we're in Blacksburg. Truly a five-star B&B! Super nice hosts, excellent food, and very comfortable, beautifully decorated, spacious, and immaculate accommodations. The common areas invite conversation and fellow lodgers quickly become friends. But if privacy is your thing, it's easy to remain anonymous, too. Highly recommended.

When traveling and staying in "chain" hotels I always check that nights' accommodations before carrying our luggage is brought into the room. You might say I'm fussy about where I sleep and you'd be right.
