“good hotel near the VT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Really friendly people, and very close location for Virginia Tech. Hotel was NOT new building, but kept in pretty good condition. Clean room and nice TV. However, it is NOT old hotel and spread out in wide format (2 floor only, but some rooms are far away, and no elevator). Meeting room was nice and clean, once again, very nice staffs. Bar was very quiet, but maybe because it was during the vacation time. over all, pretty good hotel if you are visiting VT

Room Tip: ask for room near the lobby, if you don't want to walk. If you have a lot of bags, make sure to...

Breakfast attendant was amazing and helpful with my vegan needs/concerns. Soy milk would be a great alternative, but I bought some at Kroger across the street. He let me know the bagel is vegan and even sliced it for me. Totally awesome. The front desk, Ryan w. Was awesome as well. Late at night we needed our tv fixed, towels and I had a family member need another room, and he helped all of us very quickly and with a smile. We had about 10 rooms for all of us and they were all close together and clean. Would totally recommend to others.

Planned to stay in Roanoke, but there was absolutely no availability anywhere! Kept driving, decided to try Blacksburg and stopped at the Holiday Inn...oh, my, gosh, did we ever luck in! Yes, they had rooms, and it was a beautiful hotel. Only two-stories but very large, with many halls, gardens, a pool, tennis court, a restaurant and plenty of parking. Our room was, as asked for, in the back but facing inside to the gardens and clean as a whistle. Refrigerator, coffee set ups, the usual bathroom extras...ONLY complaint was that the tub didn't want to drain, sure to be an easy fix for the next guest. Had a rate that included the breakfast buffet - hot scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, waffle maker, oatmeal, cold cereal, fruit, yogurt...if you couldn't find something to eat, you had a problem! Good service with to-go-cups offered without asking. Great experience...See review of Bull and Bones restaurant.

Room Tip: We went for the back of the hotel, facing the inner court, #189

Green Features: The usual "save the towels", always a good idea.

So this hotel is not bad, reasonable price, clean room what you would expect for a Holiday Inn. However, the nice, man working here is ALL ALONE. Apparently they had an employee quit this morning so the hotel management has him here solo after a root canal today of all things! All that being said, Ryan handled it all with a very capable, pleasant, humorous attitude which made it all work out fine. Kiddos to Ryan, he is likely an indispensable employee.

Most stay at hotel in Blacksburg. Conveniently located and the staff was fantastic. Rooms were very clean. Very good stay after a 10 hour drive. Virginia Tech is within walking distance and Downtown is a short ride away.

After a 10 hour drive checking in with Van and Ryan behind the desk made the trip worth the hours! Nice friendly and funny, just what you need after a long drive.
Great pool area to enjoy while the kids took a dip

My sister got married this past weekend at the Blacksburg Country Club, and she and her fiancé blocked off several rooms for myself (the maid of honor) and other family members and members of the wedding party. Let me say first and foremost - Van and Ryan were AMAZING. They had great personalities and amazing customer service skills; they accommodated a last second request for bridal party prep that had not come up before (I think Todd helped out..?) with the utmost helpfulness. The front desk staff assisted in an emergency trying to retrieve things from a room that was missing it's keys (music for the big day left in the bride and groom's suite) and upon checkout, the lovely young woman who helped me was gracious and professional when dealing with several of us checking out at one time. I've stayed here twice, with the previous stay being last fall for the same bride's shower, and will only stay here again in the future. The room service food was delicious, the shuttle service and driver were FANTASTIC, and it really is conveniently located to all downtown amenities. Thank y'all from the bottom of my heart for helping to make this past weekend memorable and special for my little sister!
