I stayed at the Inn as part of a roadtrip with my husband and kids. The location is easy to find off Route 460, is convenient to campus and restaurants, and right next to the visitors center. The room was spacious and comfortable. (Very handy to have 2 sinks when traveling with kids.) Each staff member was friendly and efficient.... More

First let me say that this hotel may not be the hotel for you if you don't have a car. It is a bit of a hike for all food options, which is fine if the weather permits. The room service was extremely expensive and a complimentary breakfast is not part of the deal...however, the breakfast buffet is fantastic!! For... More

We've stayed here a few times while visiting or transporting our son to and from college at Virginia Tech. The building says Hokie and luxury as you drive up to the Hokie stone portico.

We have stayed at the Inn more than a dozen times while visiting our daughter at VT! The staff, location, cleanliness of rooms, food, bar, just about everything is wonderful. Our only suggestion would be to replace the double beds with Queen size beds in the " double" rooms. Other than that, it's simply perfect!

We stayed here in February for a food and wine tasting. The room was spacious and we loved the comfy king sized bed. The hotel was very nice and charming, and in a great location. The staff were also very friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at The Inn at Virginia Tech in February 2014 while visiting the VT campus. We enjoyed the hotel a great deal. The lunch buffer at Preston's was very tasty, and the room was very nice. We will not hesitate to stay here again.
