“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here last weekend for the VT NC game. What a pleasant surprise! Very warm welcome by the staff. Large clean room with a small wet bar. Decent breakfast included. Close to campus. Would stay here again in a second. Thumbs up to all the staff members!

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family

If you can get this hotel--book it! I've stayed in nicer (4 star) more expensive hotels, but this hotel is waaay underrated.

We had a wonderful stay. Everyone was so nice, it seemed like they new you and cared about you. When was the last time someone came up to you at the free breakfast area, twice, and asked if they could get you anything? Is everything ok? How are you this morning? (Carlos, I think....nice guy!). The staff was impeccable.
The room was clean. The room really looked like the picture on the website! Imagine that. The hotel was in EXCELLENT repair and very well maintained. The breakfast was great. I don't want to just 'babble on,' but i didn't see anything to complain about. Hard to believe.
This hotel is a great bargain for what you get. The room is large, the beds are very comfortable and the couch/desk/kitchen 'suite' layout is great for family. There is a convenience store in the parking lot.

Everything was clean, clean clean. Wonderful stay, wonderful staff. Can you tell that some of my stays in the Blacksburg/Roanoke area have NOT been wonderful?

One note: Do NOT park on the back side of the hotel, just to the right of the middle entry door, in front of the laundry vent. It will cover your car in dust and fabric softener. It's worse than it sounds. If you see a giant exhaust vent in front of your parking space--move your car.

Room Tip: if you are lite sleeper like me, you want to think twice. AC is loud.

Thanks for your feedback on the AC issue. We have very recently replaced many of our units with new, quieter ones. I'm glad you had an otherwise enjoyable stay with us and hope you'll be back again soon for a more restful night's sleep.

Love this hotel and the staff! The front desk is always accommodating. I've called several times and they have gotten me in and with great rates every time. They are super friendly when we visit. We stayed at the Comfort Suites in Fairfax VA and a staff member at the front desk was arguing with a customer and telling him to "Chill Out". Not the way to handle and upset customer. The rooms are great - clean, large, and comfortable. The free breakfast is a nice addition. Jaun - the chef - is always super friendly. If it weren't for all the other factors we would stay there just because of him! We've stayed at the University Inn and I have to say we like Comfort Suites better - regardless of the cost! You won't find a better value in Blacksburg or a nicer staff. Give it a try and it will become your go-to hotel in Blacksburg!

I stayed here with a crew while working in Blacksburg. They offer great rates so I was not expecting much. What a great surprise. Rooms were very large, everything was clean! Juan took care of breakfast every morning. All the staff were friendly and wanted to help. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks
