(BLUF in Navy-speak is Bottom Line Up Front). During our son's recent orientation at VA Tech, we were able to book 2 nights at Comfort Suite University (government/military rate). The positive reviews here at Trip Advisor and other sites are reflective of the superb service the hotel management and staff provide. The front desk personnel were courteous and friendly. We...

Picked this hotel due to proximity of location to VA Tech for campus tour. Called ahead to say we would be arriving very late and requested a rollaway. Was told they don't have rollaways but that the sofa bed pulled out and would make sure we had enough pillows and bedding. Arrived after 9 hour drive at 1am and front... More

Beautiful facility. Price was appropriate. Front Desk clerk during day and evening was excellent. Several minor issues when added together equaled a major concern. My room lacked smaller towels when I arrived. Clerk at front desk quickly brought to me. Trying to make contact with front desk was difficult. Also missing coffee in room. Breakfast bar had run out of... More

Stayed here this past weekend. Friendly courteous staff (both front desk and housekeeping), the room was clean and spacious, and the continental breakfast was plentiful and fresh. Would definitely stay here again.

If you need to stay to visit Va Tech, this location is great - it's a quick & easy drive. The good: The rooms were clean, and the bed was comfy.

Booked this via Priceline Express deals for a 2-star price. Stayed for 3 nights and loved it. This is a 2 1/2-3 star property in every respect except that there is no restaurant/room service and the breakfast is average, as best. But this far better than the Days Inn, Super 8, Microtel locally, without a huge price difference. Rooms are... More

Stayed at Comfort Suites for a visit to Virginia Tech. Room was clean and beds were very comfortable. Lots of room in the suite, and the staff was helpful. Great breakfast as well. In our opinion, one of the best hotels in the area.

Took my son on a tour of Virginia Tech. This hotel is very close to the college and cheaper than similar type hotels in the area. The breakfast buffet is always a plus. Nothing truly exciting on the menu but hey it's complementary! The coffee is also good but they only give you about a 5 oz cup so you... More
