We came to an admissions open house at Virginia Tech so we chose this hotel because you can't beat it for its proximity to the campus. I had stayed here once before several years ago for the same reason. We chose a queen suite to have a comfortable space for two teenage girls with my husband and me. First the good news. The room was a good size and attractively furnished. The overstuffed faux leather chairs and couch were very comfortable (except when the sofa bed was opened but what can you expect from a sofa bed). The queen bed was very comfy and seemed larger than most queens. Lots of pillows but they were a little too fat for comfort. Good sized desk with a power strip suited for multiple chargers. Kitchenette with a very weak microwave and decent sized mini-fridge/freezer. The basics were available for eating (flatware, mugs, etc.). My pet peeve for these kitchenettes is why don't they every have any paper towels available for guests? We had to microwave our breakfast biscuits wrapped in a tissue. The bathroom was adequate but a bit of the grout needed a little elbow grease. The bad news? It was freezing in the room. Both rooms had adjustable thermostats that seemed to do nothing. Perhaps it was the fact that the outside "walls" were primary sliding glass doors (which made for a good bit of road noise). We were glad the queen bed had generous bedding which kept us warm enough but the girls on the sofa bed and Aerobed had to keep adding clothes to stay warm.
