“Clean, Beautiful Hotel, beds were not comfortable. Staff was great.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

What was good about the Hilton Garden Inn, Blacksburg:

Clean.
Modern- 3 years old.
Refrigerator in the room.
Nice sized room.
The staff was excellent, friendly, accommodating.
Close to the Hokie Campus.
The restaurant serves a great burger.
Coffee and tea available all day long.
We especially enjoyed sitting in the area off to one side of the lobby. Just like sitting in our living room at home. Fireplace, couch, and large wall mounted flat screen. All the comforts of home.
Cookies at the front desk.


What wasn't great about the Hilton:

One of our 2 Queen beds was monumentally hard and uncomfortable My son slept on the other bed and he didn't have a complaint.
The Breakfast at the Hilton costs $9 each for a rather well cooked and tasty, variety filled breakfast. Additionally, fresh fruit, cereals, yogurts. Contrast this to the IHOP in Cristiansburg and the Hilton breakfast wins hands down. (The IHOP was terrible- flies and slow service.)
Adequate indoor pool and fitness center with a really soothing whirlpool spa. Much needed after a nights sleep on the queen bed in our room.
No fresh milk available for the coffee and tea in the lobby area during the day.

In all fairness this is a nice property. The desk manager did comp me when I mentioned to him that the bed was hard and didn't adjust. I wasn't looking for a comp but he volunteered after I mentioned that the bed was uncomfortable and that both my wife and I had back troubles from sleeping on it.
I will be waiting to see if he is good to his word when I see a credit for the 1 nights stay of the two we were there.

Overall quite an enjoyable stay.

many people have discovered the HGI Blacksburg as a first rate place to stay when visiting Virginia Tech or the New River Valley. Front desk staff are very friendly, helpful and courteous. Bright, airy lobby. Clean rooms. We've stayed at a number of places in the Blacksburg / Christiansburg area over the years and this is by far our favorite.

Room Tip: The king bed rooms have a step-in shower instead of a tub/shower combo.

This is about the 5th time we stay at this hotel. Really like it. Clean, nice staff and rooms are spacious. Son goes to VT and this is his third year. We have stayed at other hotels in Christiansburg and Radford. None of those were any close to the niceness that this hotel is. It is new, scent is nice, clean feel, large rooms, nice beds (actually, very comfy), good breakfast. The only problem I have is the price increases during school events. To me, that is a little cheesy. BUT, in the reality of life, that is how they make their money.

Room Tip: In the area, there are many hotels. The quality of this hotel is worth the extra money, just becaus...

Cookie cutter HGI that has all the standard stuff. Good Staff, Clean, No Surprises and that is what I pay for. This is another HGI that has ONLY cooked to order hot food. You can't grab your food in a hurry. Waitress takes your order and brings it to you. (I don't like this set up)

RECOMMENDED: This is likely one of the newest properties in Blacksburg in otherwise sparse pickings. Everything is close in this tiny university town and alternative hotels are in nearby Christianburg (though atmosphere is more "country"). Remember during school events, prices go up and it's tough to make a reservation.

This property is just off the main highway and a few minutes drive to the Vtech campus and "downtown". It's a standard issue Garden Inn which is good. Rooms are large and bedding is very comfortable (I'll admit I purchased the mattress for my own home). Nice desk area and decent free wired Internet.

If there is any recommendation to Hilton designers - the rooms lack adequate lighting so it's always a bit dim and the worse offense, cost savings on the windows - they don't open which is a real shame for allowing some fresh air in. Finally, the 5 story complex is of wood construction, meaning if you have some heifer on the floor above, you'll hear them moving about.

I drove by both the Courtyard and Holiday Inn and would deem them acceptable from a cursory view, however, this Hilton is likely your BEST choice.

There is a small but adequate gym on the ground floor, the indoor pool is unfortunately too small to be of any merit. A long quiet country road next to the hotel provides a nice walk/run area to enjoy the nearby mountains.

Overall, certainly would return to this property and this is a good choice!

This is close to campus and is clean and new. Breakfast was great. Beds very comfortable. Pool area was clean and the room was quiet. I recommend without hesitation.
