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.

My husband and I returned to our favorite bed and breakfast for a restful night. We do enjoyed ourselves and again Nicky and Rick's hospitality is so welcoming . We have booked additional reservation for August for family and friends. A home away from home. We were able to stay in the newly designed Barcelona room and it was such... More

We stayed here twice and both visits were so pleasant. Nice accommodations, comfortable beds, delicious breakfast, friendly and helpful staff! SO MUCH BETTER than a chain hotel. Highly recommend. 5 stars.

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. If you are "fussy" and looking for a B&B anywhere near Blacksburg Virginia the Clay Corner Inn is wonderful, it certainly was for my wife... More

I enjoyed my two night stay at the Clay Corner Inn during spring. It was a suite and I was pleasantly surprised to find a large size washer/dryer in the suite in the closet. How awesome is that! It was like being at home but yet away from home but with unique and beautiful decorations. The Inn keepers, Nicky and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Clay Corner Inn. It offered all the amenities of a hotel, but with the intimacy and comfort of home. The beds and sheets are the best! Breakfast was wonderful. The proximity to the VT campus and our daughter's dorm was better than any other hotel, including the VT Inn!
