“Lovely Decor and excellent housekeeping staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

The new decor is lovely, the rooms have many shelves in the bathrooms, the entertainment centers in the rooms are very nice and the housekeeping staff were all very friendly and efficient. The location could not be more convenient to the University.

Room Tip: The rooms that open to the pool courtyard are very nice.

Green Features: I agree with their suggestions for guests to reuse towels and conserve energy.

I was very happy with my stay here. I have literally never encountered a friendlier housekeeping staff anywhere! They were extremely considerate of my time during my stay and very polite and understanding when I ended up asking them repeatedly to come back to clean the room at another time (I was in town for a wedding and had a hectic schedule that kept changing).

I spoke with Rhonda Cooper, Director of Sales, before staying at this Holiday Inn and she sold me on this location over the The Inn at Virginia Tech or the more affordable Red Carpet Inn nearby, and I am extremely happy that she did. The location is extremely convenient to everything and every single staff member I encountered was very nice and very helpful. I will definitely stay again if I am in the area.

Room Tip: No elevator to the second level so if you aren't traveling light, try for the first floor.

Thank you for making our recent IAAP Event a special one. Not only was the event space set up early so that we could decorate it to our liking, it was arranged nicely and not crowded. The servers for the event were extremely courteous and very attentive. This made for a very nice and special event. Oh, and the food; it was EXCELLENT! Have attended several meals/meetings there and have yet to have one that wasn't to my liking. As a member of Virginia Tech and the Blacksburg community, I plan to book all our special events at your location. It's a pleasure to work with a staff that is very accommodating and very friendly.

Spent 4 nights at this hotel to attend a meeting on the VT campus. It was clearn, quiet, and comfortable, despite the presence of another large group meeting at the hotel. Had I not seen this group having dinner on the lawn, I wouldn't have known they were there. Staff were courteous and very helpful, even shipping me three shirts that I had inadvertently left in the dresser drawers. Breakfast buffet was standard fare: good but not particularly memorable. Room rate was very competitive, and proximity to VT campus is a real advantage. Would certainly stay there again and would recommend it to others.

I don't know the names of the staff - didn't really look at their name plates but all were very attentive and courteous. I really enjoy having our meetings there. The food is always exceptional and plentiful. Restrooms are clean and well stocked. The bar area was nice - a few of us socialized there prior to the meeting and both bartenders were courteous and pleasant. I enjoyed their service. One young lady is new and did a wonderful job. the other bartender was most gracious in assisting the new lady.
I always have a good time there!!! Wish I could eat there more often!!!!!!!!!!

I just attended a meeting at this hotel. The accomodations were very clean. The tables settings were perfect. The entire waitstaff was very friendly and pleasant. The food was incredible; the seasonings were very well balanced. The entire atmosphere made our meeting comfortable and just perfect.
