“Incredible Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

My whole wedding party including family, relatives, and friends had a wonderful experience at the Holiday Inn University-Blacksburg. I called numerous times to set things up, and the staff was more than accomodating, helpful, and polite. The rates were outstanding, especially considering the quality of the facility. My dad even said that was the nicest master suite they have every stayed in. I was just amazed how clean and modern everything was in the hotel. I could not have been more happy with my choice. Food was great, service was exceptional, beds were very comfortable, rooms were incredibly clean and organized, tv's were top notch, and the staff were very helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We were attending a basketball game at VT and chose this hotel because of its location and price. From the outside it was just ok but I was very pleased with our room. It was totally remodeled with hanging flat screen TV, granite countertops in the room and bath, awesome mattresses and was super clean. The staff was very pleasant and accomodating. The hotel was much larger than it appeared and you park outside of each side of the building not in one main, large lot. It is located VERY near VT and there is a shopping area on the street behind it with a grocery store, Rite Aid, Panera, and a few other places to eat.

If it pertains to you, the hotel is only 2 floors high and there is NOT an elevator in the hotel. You must carry your belongings up the steps.

If we ever have a reason to come back to the area, we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Since parking surrounds the building, rooms on the first floor outside (versus courtyard) have cars...

Staff was attentive, pleasant. The housekeeping was very friendly.
Room was clean, comfy.
The suite was spacious had two tv's, ample space for accomodating guests, nice couches.
The bar was nice cuz it had a billiards room, and an old fashion popcorn machine! Yum
Can't need more than that at a hotel.

I went there with a number of my sisters and their families and we had a wonderful time. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms were great. I stayed in a Presidential Suite and it was simply fantastic - and was priced for Blacksburg. Definitely recommend it and will go again.

Room Tip: Get an Executive or Presidential Suite - they are usually only 25% more than regular rooms.

If you are a priority club member and it doesn't matter what level you are at you are treated just like a regular guest and don't expect to receive coupons for a free drink in the bar, breakfast coupons or upgrades. They have started to leave envelopes in your room asking you to tip the housekeeping either leave $2.00 cash or charge it to your bill. This last issue about tipping has push us not to return to this hotel again. This is way the remarks are terrible.

The most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in a hotel. Check-in was friendly and efficient. Room was perfect and bathroom was fully stocked. The morning wake up call was perfect and exactly as asked for.

Room Tip: Have not ever had a bad room or experience.
