Nice quiet hotel in great location near Virginia Tech. Very spacious room. Housekeeping may be lazy about changing sheets, so brace yourself for the possibility of finding a pair of worn boxers between the sheets at the foot of the bed. I guess they just eyeballed what they could see, deemed the sheets to be "clean enough", & made the... More

I drove to Blacksburg alone to visit the campus and slept here. The room is very spacious with a microwave, mini fridge and sofa. Breakfast is provided and has a reasonable selection. There were only 2 issues. 1- when I returned from my day at v tech my door was open due to the cleaning people which I would be... More

This hotel is a fine place to stay, when visiting Virginia Tech. It's close (3 min drive) to the campus visitor center, it's clean and comfortable, and reasonably priced. Breakfast and spotty wireless included. Staff is friendly and plenty of parking too.

We stayed at this hotel for one night before moving our child into the dorm at VA Tech. The hotel is either new or updated. Check in was easy, and we were given a room near the lobby as requested. The room was a suite style with a partition between the two rooms, all relatively large and easy for 3... More

We stayed here 4-nights while visiting family in Blacksburg. Hotel was easy to find and convenient. It was very quiet in spite of our 1st floor room facing front parking lot and being adjacent to the indoor pool entrance. The pool was not used much, however, while we were in the hotel. Breakfast was nice the couple of days we... More

This hotel has all the basics you can want, and is really quite nice. The location is convenient to Virginia Tech, the room with the suite was nicely appointed, the staff was very helpful and the breakfast was good. There are a few things that need adjustment to make it 4/5*. The most significant was the AC in the room.... More

Finally a great hotel experience in Blacksburg, Va. Hotel room was clean, quiet, and the bed was comfortable. Front desk clerk let us have a top floor room which looked out onto the pasture nearby. We stayed just one night so I cannot remark on housekeeping nor breakfast but otherwise an overall pleasant experience. One drawback- lighting could be better... More

The hotel staff was very nice. I appreciate good customer service! The room was good, very spacious. The fridge and microwave were very convenient. The downside was the bathroom had so much hair on the floor, in the shower, and in the sink. I'm sure it wasn't mine because it was too long and I hadn't even used anything. I... More
