My wife and I stayed here with our 3 kids who were looking at VA Tech as an option for attending college there. We booked two rooms and were quoated a price for those rooms. The bills we received the morning of our check-out were much higher than the booked rate. I questioned the front desk clerk and he could... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your Inn. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The entire staff very friendly and extremely helpful. We would certainly stay here the next time we are in the area and will continue to recommend it to others. It was very reasonably priced considering all the amenities that were available. The grounds were beautiful and... More

Had a great time visiting family. Rooms are very nice and decor Hokie-Riffic. There isn't a pool or gym but they provide access to one near by. Food at restaurant excellent. Front staff very helpful. We will come back on our next visit to Blacksburg.

Rooms are comfortable and layout is nice. It is nice to have a frig in the room. There is a constant "leaking" sound of water associated with the air conditioning that you have to listen to while you are sleeping. There doesn't appear to be a fan/vent in the bathroom making any sounds able to be heard outside the bathroom...makes... More

I stayed at the Inn during a visit to the college with my upcoming college age son. The location was perfect for our purposes. It was easy to get to. Right on campus (though to be honest, across the street were other hotels). The price was on the same lines as the other nearby hotels. The room and hotel was... More

Just spent the night while helping our recent grad move out of town. The inn is attractive. Rooms are large and comfortable, but a little dated. I was surprised by the room to room noise. Maybe they are trying for the 'dorm experience'. You could hear conversations and lots of plumbing noise. Staff is helpful when engaged, but generally inattentive.... More

My son and his finance recently got married in the chapel at Virginia Tech. Family and friends stayed at the Inn. Many of us were there for 3 days.

Great customer service, nice lobby (with outdoor seating), meeting rooms and breakfast area. Rooms are pretty big. Right within the Viriginia Tech campus --- close to downtown, several restaurants and cafes in the area.

This hotel could not be more convenient to the Virginia Tech campus. If you are staying here to visit the university or take a tour, I would highly recommend it if you can get a decent rate. However, I do not think that the actual hotel lives up to its price or star rating. The room was dated - the... More

We stayed here during VT orientation. The Inn is quite lovely & very quiet, with large rooms; the location is ideal if you're visiting VT, and the staff were polite and enthusiastic, but as some other reviewers have noted - the rooms are a bit dated. I also wish they'd put in Queen beds, as 2 adults sleeping in a... More
