Once again we weren't let down by the Comfort Suites Staff!! Beth had us checked in and to our room with in 2 mins of walking thru the door! Incredibly friendly staff as always. Warm and cozy and treated like friends rather than patrons. My ONLY gripe is that the wireless signal on the 5th floor gets a little weak... More

I'm in the middle of a giant trip and I'm in a different hotel every night so I don't really remember much about this place but I think it was just fine. I haven't found a Comfort Inn that hasn't been great yet.

This is a Comfort Suites done properly. From the check in, with late checkout request, to the perfectly attended breakfast bar; they get it right. I am a Diamond Elite member, and I KNOW my Choice brand hotels. I know what to look for and what to expect. THIS location exceeded my expectations. There are far too many franchisee owners... More

We stayed at this property last summer on our vacation. When we went for Christmas with our children chose this again. The staff at this hotel has to be the most friendly of any place that we stayed both in the summer and now at Christmas. The breakfast here is hot and inviting, with cold juices and a milk dispenser... More

My husband and I stayed here last weekend for while attending the Hokie Open.It was in a very central location to VT's campus. The hotel was clean and welcoming. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and we enjoyed having a sitting area with a small desk and a kitchenette. The breakfast in the morning... More

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

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.
