“Pleasant stay”

The room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. All hotel facilities were clean. The employees were helpful and very pleasant. The location was very close to Virginia Tech. The breakfast selections were varied and tasty.

Stayed here for one night recently. The hotel is a 5 minute drive to VA Tech. I was very pleased with the room. It was clean (except for a little bit of mold in the shower area) and comfortable. Appreciated the option of soft or firm pillows. The heating unit was a located right next to the bed & it was a little loud. The hotel was quiet at night.
The breakfast was pretty good. Oatmeal was in packets, not already prepared. The waffles were delicious. The breakfast attendant, Juan, was courteous & responsive.
Would definitely stay here again! Good value.

The room was tight and shaped oddly, but the service was friendly. Even in the morning breakfast area, the chef was checking on everyone and making sure the food was good. The food was excellent as far as hotel breakfasts go. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

My husband, my son, and I were visiting Virginia Tech for their open house November 2013. We were absolutely amazed with the quality and level of service we received at this hotel. When we arrived after a long drive, we were greeted and efficiently checked in by the front desk staff. There were cookies and popcorn in the lobby, which were much appreciated. In our huge and spacious room we had an option of soft or firm pillows, a coffee maker, microwave, and a desk with a comfy chair for using our laptops. Did I mention that the room was HUGE!!!! The next morning we awakened to find our bill already in our door to make our checkout even more efficient than when we checked in. We went down to breakfast before our college visit and really enjoyed the variety and quality of the food. I only wish that we could have stayed longer!

We came to Blacksburg to visit friends on our way to another destination. The building and the lobby was beautiful; nicely furnished and had a fireplace. Our room was wonderful, as nice as a resort room. We had a small suite with a kitchenette and a king sized bed. It was immaculately clean and nicely decorated. The bed and blankets were so comfortable and clean! There wasn't a bedspread, just a decorative panel on the foot of the bed which we thought was a great idea since I always pull off bedspreads immediately. The carpet was plush for a hotel. We wished all the rest of our rooms were as nice as this! Good breakfast.

My husband and I stay here for every VT home football game. The hotel was recently remodeled and its beautiful. The beds are very comfortable. The rooms are very quiet. Nice kitchen area and suite. The breakfast is varied and free. There are cookies upon arrival. The staff is always friendly and helpful and remember us by name. The prices are higher for football weekends but they are higher at every hotel from Christiansburg to Blacksburg. For the convenience, it is well worth it!

Room Tip: The suites next to the elevators have a full kitchen. Surprisingly, you really don't hear the e...

I just stayed here for one night after attending a Hokie football game but wish it had been longer, the room was spacious and very clean. You have a bedroom and sitting room area and the room also comes with sink, microwave coffee maker and fridge. One nice feature - card on the bed explains which pillows are firm and which are soft so you can arrange them according to your preference (and the bed was very comfortable). The breakfast (available in the lobby) was yummy and we were particularly impressed with Juan (introduced himself and was incredibly nice, friendly and helpful and kept everything well stocked - no easy task since it was packed!) front desk staff was also nice and pleasant (oh and almost forgot they had popcorn available in the lobby when we arrived in the evening after the football game - nice touch).its also close to the Tech campus and right off 460 so very convenient location too. I highly recommend it and plan on staying there again the next time I am in Blacksburg to see my son.
