“Great Spot to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

We stayed here (from Australia) while visiting my son at Virginia Tech. Its a great hotel, with very helpful staff, comfy warm beds and situated right in the middle of Blacksburg. Its walking distance from everything, in this pretty, college town in rural Virginia, a beautiful part of the world. With no restaurant breakfast is available in the form of Granola bars and coffee, which is fine, and there are plenty of cafes close by. The rooms are smallish, but well appointed, and have everything you need.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

We have stayed here many times for VT basketball games. Hotel is very convenient to VT and for downtown activities. Outside nightlife can sometimes be noisy so not the best if you are a light sleeper. Rooms are nice with granite in the bathrooms and two flat screen tvs - although they are very small. They have a nice separation between a small sitting area, the bathroom and then the sleeping/bed area. We stayed here for my son's graduation from VT in December, and they kept making us move our vehicle (SUV) to a parking garage across the street - even though there was plenty of parking. They were very rude about it, so even though we like the convenience and have had good experiences in the past, for the prices they charge and the rudeness of the staff, I doubt we will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter.

Location is good, but...

Bad service-the lady checking us in was very strange and not friendly at all, they never said welcome back or Helped us with our bags.

Awful rooms- it looked to be a 15 inch flat screen on the wall, and the room was very very very small and had an awkward layout. It smelled of cigarette smoke.

Bad parking situation- there are only a few spaces on property, otherwise you have to park in a garage a block away, this was unappealing

No amenities- no pool, no restaurant, no breakfast to speak of

High prices- other places are much better and less expensive like the hilton Garden inn or inn at Virginia tech

We stayed during Christmas break so the town was quiet and so was the hotel. The rooms are small but have everything you need- including a small sitting room with a flat screen TV, sofa and small sink/wet bar. The beads and pillows are very comfortable. The front desk employee was very helpful and the lobby is very nice. There is also a small covered parking garage for guests.

Room Tip: ask for a room in the back of the hotel to avoid the street noise.

The Main Street Inn is a new hotel (about two years old) with modern conveniences and old world style. The suites are not large but are well designed. All include a seating area with hide-a-bed and chair, tables, a tv, and a small sink, refrigerator, and microwave. No dishes are provided. The decor is tasteful, not flashy. The beds are comfortalble. We could not get on the wi-fi, and it took a long time for the staff to rectify the problem. I don't know if that is typical or a one-time-problem. There is no breakfast per se, but each morning in the lobby you can get fruit, small pastries, juice, and coffee and tea, without any extra charge. There is space for eight cars in the attached covered garage. If you miss out on that there is free parking for hotel guests in the garage across the street. The staff members were all professional and friendly.

The Main Street Inn is a quaint little hotel located a few blocks away from the Virginia Tech campus. There are also shops, restaurants and stores nearby. My husband and I stayed here during the ACC Swimming and Dive championships, February 15-18th (held in Christiansburg) and are very happy with our stay. The hotel lobby looks just like the website’s photo - warm and inviting, a great place to visit with friends or read the paper. Though no breakfast is offered, there are always apples, and bakery items as well as coffee, tea and juice in the lobby. The hotel is quiet – something I really appreciate because I am a super light sleeper! I was a little fearful of our room, 303, located directly across from the elevator – but didn’t hear a thing! All rooms are considered suites. The living area has a sofa bed, a bar area with coffee maker, refrigerator, and a microwave. There is a very small flat-screened TV placed high on the wall – due to the LCD screen, the location makes it difficult to see images well. The room is quite small – just large enough for the sofa sleeper to pull out.
The bedroom area is a bit larger, with a table (a desk would have been nice) and a wonderfully comfortable bed. There is also a wall-mounted TV, larger and easier to see.
The bathroom has a granite countertop and newer shower. Décor is moderate at best, but the rooms were clean and appealing. Our housekeeper used a strong “linen spray” that had an offensive aerosol hairspray smell to me. We asked her if she could stop using it and we only had to ask once.
We never had an issue with parking, but the area behind the hotel is quite limited. We asked if we could park there and were given a parking ticket to place in the car.
We were very pleased with our stay at the Main Street Inn and would definitely recommend this hotel!

What a nice place to stay! Front desk staff was efficient and nice. Coffee, biscotti and apples in the lobby were a nice touch, and there were granola bars in the morning for when we needed a quick bite on our way out. The room was small, but beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Plenty of clean towels, cushy comfortable bedding, and Backstreets Restaurant right next door. I will stay there again! They offer a AAA discount for those on a budget also - that gave me 10% off the online rate.
