“Taking son to Medical School”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

This was our first trip to Blacksburg as we were moving our son to medical school. We stayed two nights at the Holiday Inn and spent a lot of time in the room and around the pool. We were upgraded to a suite which was so nice as we met family for a pizza dinner in the room. We rode the bikes (provided for free) around the Virginia Tech Campus and slept in the most comfortable bed. Adam was working at the front desk both days and was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again for the White Coat Ceremony.

This is our half way point between PA and GA and we will definitely stay here again. Rooms were clean, restaurants close by and the employees are great. Adam was super accommodating and even fixed our TV. Great place to stay!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Very convenient to Virginia Tech and one of the most friendly and accommodating staff I have ever seen. The only reason for a four rating is that, although the hotel has only two stories, there is no elevator, and the stairs to the second floor are fairly steep. As a senior citizen this was a problem for me when we checked in and found our rooms were on the second floor. This was remedied immediately when I asked if there was anything on the first floor. If this is an issue I recommend you mention it when making reservations. In the future we plan several trips to Blacksburg, and this will definitely be our hotel of choice.

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.
