5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2011

My son and I stayed here while visiting friends in nearby Radford. The motel is all non-smoking. The motel supplied a full-size crib upon request at no extra charge. The breakfast buffet was very good, with plenty of hot food, including sufficient vegetarian-friendly selections. The free motel wireless option (higher speed available for a fee) worked fine with a Linux laptop, with acceptable performance. The king bed suite with sleep sofa is not two separate rooms, but it was possible after taking the mattress out of the sleep sofa to turn it on end and use the comforter from the king bed along with an end table placed on the king bed to drape over an area next to the king bed to make a quiet cozy place for my son to sleep. The indoor heated pool was nice to swim in. The staff were friendly.

August 14th, 2011 - Second time staying here and it is clearly our favorite in the area when we are visiting Virginia Tech. Staff is friendly. rooms are spacious and very clean. Free breakfast is bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy, and all of the standard carbs. Milk is cold!

Only downside is that the free internet access is a little on the slow side but it does work.

Nice spacious suites, modern hotel and furnishings, comfortable. I've never used the Hawthorn brand before, definitely would again. Our group negotiated a really good group rate, too.

Great hotel. Clean, spacious rooms. Great value. Breakfast was great although crowded. I must have gone downstairs when everybody else did. Quiet place, a mile from Starbucks and around the corner from Tech. I will stay here again when I return.

We are a family of 5 with our youngest being 6 months old and this hotel was fabulous! We stayed here as a half way spot on our vacation. The indoor pool was warm enough for even the baby and we all loved it! We all fit comfortably in one king suite with the sofabed for the kids and there was room for the playpen too. The microwave and fridge made keeping and warming bottles very convenient. Hotel staff was friendly and accomodating. They even offered to match an internet price. Oh and go eat at Sal's pizza yum!

I started staying here when my daughter was looking at VT over 5 years ago. She will be graduating this year, and I've tried to get this hotel every time I visit. Unfortunately it isn't always available since it is so popular.
The breakfast is better than most, the rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly/helpful. It's nice to have the suite.
The hotel gets its fair share of sports teams traveling to play at VT, but I've never had a problem with noise.
You can't really walk to campus from here, but it is very close.
