“Great place for staff meeting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

The hotel has been a great place to hold staff meetings. I've been there at least twice for this. The rooms were great and we all enjoyed the food. It's in a great location and it's quite a deal in comparison to other places around the area.

I planned out faculty meeting at the Holiday Inn-University in Blacksburg in April 2013. WE arranged the lodging for six out of town faculty members, meeting space and meals. We were VERY pleased with the price and value of our event.

The sales and catering staff went out of their way to make arrangements for us, even to seperate billing for graudate students who came for dinner to have interaction with the faculty. Because of state guidelines we could not pay for the student meals in the state system, so they had to pay for their own meals. This meant the staff had to select the students to process individual credit card payments, which they handled professionally.

Our meeting was a success and everyone was pleased with the lodging rooms, the quality and preparation of the meals and again, the efficient service of all the hotel staff. This is an excellent place for meetings.

Room Tip: All rooms have been renovated so there is no bad room.

I ran into some problems with my reservation because I became ill suddenly, but Amanda at the Holiday Inn University-Blacksburg took care of everything for me. She was efficient, professional, and very, very kind. What great customer service! I will stay here again for sure.

Beautiful Banquet Rooms and excellent food and service!
Our organization recently had the pleasure of a dinner and meeting function at the Holiday Inn University. Our servers for our dinner were Kate and Mike...they did an outstanding job!
Thank you soo much to all of the staff at the front desk for directing out guests to the dining room, and a huge pat on the back to Mr. Rogers, the manager! He should be proud of the wonderful job done by all of his staff. I will recommend this location to anyone interested.

Wanted a get away not to far from home and HI University fit the bill. Love that this is an older hotel that has been well maintained.....can't say enough about the beautiful landscaping...perfect timing with all the spring flowers in bloom. Bed was very comfortable & liked having pillows clearly labeled...soft ....firm. Our biggest disappointment was the restaurant or should I say lack of restaurant at night. It was raining and as this was a relaxing get away trip, we didn't want to go out to find food so we ended to the restaurant. However dining room is now closed at night and 4 tables were set up to one side of lounge area. Food was basically bar food, nachos, burgers, etc....which was ok bar food. Burger was bland and dry, could have found a much better one at someplace like Five Guys or even Hardees. Desserts were limited and even waitress felt bad about size of dessert and reduced the price without even being asked. Breakfast was buffet and ok...but pricy. Don't go for the food, go for the nice soft bed, location and grounds.

I stayed for 1 night. Very comfortable bed and nicely appointed room. Parking was assesable. Staff at the front desk were very helpful. Nice restaurant that serve meals to accommodate different dietary needs. Coffee was great! No sludge served here. Hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants and specialty stores. There is a really nice yarn shop next to 5 Guys Hamburger. 1 grumpy staff in the dining room in the morning!

Our IDDL staff retreat was awesome. You all worked hard to ensure our intense strategic planning day went smoothly with seeing to our needs and accommodating us with our requests. A special thank you to Kenny Rogers for ensuring we had carafes on each table with coffee along with cream and sweeteners. The staff and I are very grateful for that.
