We stayed at this hotel while attending a sports camp at Virginia Tech. Very close to the college and the hotel is in great shape, even the laundry facilities that we used. By the way, you can buy detergent and dryer sheets there for a $1 each so don't worry about bringing your own. Gym was pretty standard but treadmill... More

Our 2nd time staying here. Spacious, clean rooms with pull out sofa. Perfect for families with teens. Of mention is the young man who oversees the breakfast buffet. He makes sure you have everything you need at breakfast. Very conscientious. I apologize for not knowing his name. We remembered him from our last visit. He is a company asset. Front... More

An easy ride into town. Near Virginia Tech. Room very comfortable for 3 adults and 3 children. Front desk very efficient and helpful. Beds comfortable. Even numbered rooms offer views of mountains. Breakfast had enough variety so that we all found something that we liked.

Very pleased with this Comfort Suites. Front desk staff was very attentive and helpful for offering eating choices, within half a mile. Very conveinently located near the campus and downtown Blacksburg. Breakfast was just fine with many choices for a picky family. Definitely would stay there again. Surprisingly, price point was actually lower than most of the other motels in... More

Hotel is located at an exit with NO food establishments. Feels very remote, isolated even though it's right off I-81 exit. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Rooms are okay...definitely in need of updating. Could have been cleaner. Got the feeling our room hadn't been used in a while from the dust, etc.

This Comfort Suites is very nice. My kids enjoyed the indoor pool, and the breakfast was tasty with a good selection. Staff was very friendly! Room was spacious and very clean. These guys really came through for us at 11:15 pm when the other motel we had booked was horrible on a busy weekend! Would recommend staying here again!

Really comfortable and clean near Virginia Tech, we spent a night here. There was a little snafu at checkin- they had us go to a room where there were empty pizza boxes, so we were able to switch right away. They were very apologetic. Beds were ok, but it was very quiet (nothing happening at the university that would bring... More

Let me start out by saying I rarely get a perfect scores for hotel. But I must say this comfort inn went over and above all of what is expected of a chain. My two brothers and I recently stayed here and we got two double beds and a pullout sofa room. There was plenty of room for the three... More
