We stayed here twice and both visits were so pleasant. Nice accommodations, comfortable beds, delicious breakfast, friendly and helpful staff! SO MUCH BETTER than a chain hotel. Highly recommend. 5 stars.

We try to stay here every time we're in Blacksburg. Truly a five-star B&B! Super nice hosts, excellent food, and very comfortable, beautifully decorated, spacious, and immaculate accommodations. The common areas invite conversation and fellow lodgers quickly become friends. But if privacy is your thing, it's easy to remain anonymous, too. Highly recommended.

When traveling and staying in "chain" hotels I always check that nights' accommodations before carrying our luggage is brought into the room. You might say I'm fussy about where I sleep and you'd be right. If you are "fussy" and looking for a B&B anywhere near Blacksburg Virginia the Clay Corner Inn is wonderful, it certainly was for my wife and me..Our recent stay at the Clay Corner Inn was in one word, exceptional. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by Nikki who explained the history of her home then gave us a tour beginning with spaces guests can share, they include a well equipped visitors kitchen and a comfy living room complete with board games, not a computer game in sight, thank God. We then were shown the features of our suite, the Blacksburg. Our suite was absolutely perfect. From the bright colors of the bedding, the seclusion of our private living room, the suite we'd reserved was exactly as pictured on the Inn's web site. Every detail, imported soaps and rain shower head in our private bathroom, the meticulousness cleanliness of the suite, extra large closets in both bed and living room, the living room can become an extra bedroom if needed. the not coin operated, as in free, washer and dryer in our suite. And the breakfasts, since arriving home I've been describing the breakfasts to our friends and family as something you see on the cover of Bon Appetit. Nikki and Dominque, not sure of the spelling, served us a private delicious, yet healthy, breakfast each morning. If you ate traveling in the Blacksburg area indulge yourself and reserve a stay at the Clay Corner Inn

What a wonderful and kind review, thank you so much for all the lovely details of our little Boutique Hotel. We are so happy you enjoyed all our amenities and see the value & difference of staying here rather than a "chain hotel" as you put it.

We stopped off at this gorgeous place on our way to DC from Georgia, my son had stayed here when he visited Virginia Tech, it is on the edge of the campus. The rooms are immaculate and the attention to detail is outstanding, we felt very much at home. We stayed in the house with 3 rooms and had a large kitchen to use. The breakfast, which was served in the main house, was simply delicious and served by a lovely and very helpful young lady. The only small niggle we had was the noise coming from the heating duct in our room was disturbing in the night, but it is only a very small complaint, we still had a wonderful stay and excellent hospitality.

We are sorry to hear we couldn't fulfill our dream of creating the perfect stay for you and will make sure that when you come again we will do just that!

My son & I spent 2 nights at the Clay Corner Inn this past spring. What a beautiful place! It is located right down the street from VT, the college that he will be going to for the next 4 years, one block from the historic district and within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The college campus is only a few blocks away. The Inn is beautifully decorated, the breakfast is delicious, and the rooms are modern and comfortable. You do feel as if you are home. The bed in my room was as comfortable as mine at home! The owners, Nikki & Rick made us feel very welcomed. What a beautiful Inn!

I enjoyed my two night stay at the Clay Corner Inn during spring. It was a suite and I was pleasantly surprised to find a large size washer/dryer in the suite in the closet. How awesome is that! It was like being at home but yet away from home but with unique and beautiful decorations. The Inn keepers, Nicky and Rick, are amazing at keep the B&B in mint condition. The breakfast menu was above the ordinary and can be customized according to your liking. Get this - the B&B inquires about your dietary needs so that they can cater to your needs. It felt cared for, something I would not feel at a chain hotel like Hilton, not to this extent anyway. Clay Corner Inn also offers Reiki and it was an experience! Nicky is a Karuna master (like a PhD in Reiki) so I was fortunate to get an energy healing session with her. After the session I felt like I had a full night's rest and was relaxed. Reiki is experiential so it is not easy to explain so do get a session at some point. Just opposite the Clay Corner Inn, there is a hiking trail with beautiful colored trees, birds, squirrels. A great way to take in nature and be at peace with hiking or jogging. Virginia Tech is walking distance from Clay Corner Inn so I had an opportunity to walk the campus and check out the garden and restaurants. I will certainly visit Blacksburg again and stay at the boutique hotel, Clay Corner Inn, for sure!

Room Tip: The B&B is just gorgeous and the owner is personable so it is a must try.

The Clay Corner Inn is a must-stay!! The accommodations are outstanding, the service, impeccable and the location can't be beat! We had a fabulous two day stay while visiting friends. Nikki, the inn-keeper went so far as to make a special breakfast treat for me, personally, on top of a filling, nutritious and delicious breakfast. My husband and I are walkers and from the Clay Corner you can walk anywhere in town and it is adjacent to VTech. The Inn is also one block from the Huckleberry Trail, a 6 mile paved multi-use trail that takes you from downtown Blacksburg to the mall. We have traveled from Maine to California and this is the best b&b we have experienced!
