“Inn at Virginia Tech”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This was my first stay at the Inn. I have attended many functions there and always been pleased with the conference and restaurant facilities. Upon check in the front desk clerk was very nice and efficient. Upon arrival in the room I was surprised that the decor was so bland...gold and burgundy with very uncomfortable chairs. There was one bath towel in the bathroom but with a call to the front desk that issue was fixed in about 10 minutes. The lighting in the room and the bathroom was dim and the water pressure was low. The hvac unit was very loud and I could hear the guests in the room above or beside me when they used the bathroom.

The room was clean and the staff was great. The conference center is awesome and the food is good, if not a tad bit overpriced. Overall I will say this is an average hotel but I will stay here again if the need arises.

I have stayed at The Inn many times this past year. Each time I arrived, the front desk clerks have been very helpful and pleasant. The rooms are always clean and there is always plenty of towels in the bathrooms. I have used the shuttle service plenty of times, and the drivers have always gone the extra mile. Every employee I have come in contact with has gone above and beyond to help my family in which ever way they could. When we were visiting during the VT/UVA football game, they were packed in the lobby bar and the staff was overwhelmed, but they were pleasant and making the best of a crazy situation.

Had a good stay with great service. My room (Single King) was large with ample furnishings. My room was near the end of the hallway, which is much longer than most hotels. This is odd, but not a major inconvenience.

We stayed at this conference center/ hotel for a meeting. The rooms were nicely appointed, spacious, clean, and quiet.
There is a dining room and bar. We
opted to go to a local restaurant the management had suggested.
The magical decorations of Christmas were everywhere. A beautiful, cozy fireplaces adorned the entry lobby.
The exercise room/ pool area was wonderful . That is always a must for me. It was amply appointed with nice toiletries and large towels.
I would most definitely select this hotel to return to. Friendly staff. Very good location.

The Inn at Virginia Tech is far better than what I was expecting for a college campus "inn." The hotel has managed to seamlessly blend the college inn functions with a sufficiently well equipped hotel and restaurant. And while the physical structure is mildly reminiscent of a college dorm, the rooms are solid, quiet, and very hotel-esque.

The staff gets particular credit form being exceptionally pleasant, informative, and engaging, without being intrusive. It is not a luxury hotel, but meets the business travelers needs quite nicely.

Good work out facility.

Other than the presence of an excessive amount of academics, this place is first rate.

Staying at this hotel for the first time was a pleasant surprise. It is in a beautiful building that matches the architecture of the Virginia Tech campus. We were there shortly after Thanksgiving and it was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The staff was excellent and the room was very comfortable. It is right on the campus of the university and adjoins the 9 hole golf course

I have stayed at the Inn at Virginia Tech three times now since I have a student at Virginia Tech and while I think it is a tad overpriced, you can't beat the service - everyone that I have interacted with there has been more than helpful. The proximity to the campus and the shuttle bus make it a great place to stay if you have a student in town. The dinner menu is a bit fancy for our tastes, but the Sunday brunch is fabulous and well worth going to even if you aren't staying at the Inn. It would be nice if you would have coffee in the lobby beyond 9:00 a.m. and refrigerators in the rooms would be a nice touch as well.
