“Comfortable, with great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We attended a conference at the Skelton Conference Center. It was handy to be able to stay on site with an excellent restaurant. Not much of a gift store, but great service from the large number of staff who went out of their way to direct us to correct locations. Clean room, quiet location.

Room Tip: Some rooms can be very far from conference center. If close location or quiet location are important...

We have stayed at the Inn at Virginia Tech 8 or 9 times and it is always our first choice when in Black burg, VA. Such a friendly staff that makes you feel at home . Front desk so welcoming. We love the rooms which are very large and spacious and also 2 sinks which makes it so much easier when every one is getting ready in the morning. Wonderful hotel!!

I would highly recommend The Inn at Virginia Tech for anyone visiting the Blacksburg area. Not only did the Inn provide clean and comfortable rooms but also wonderful staff that were friendly, helpful, and considerate of your time and needs. The Inn provided a great shuttle service in the area to the point of almost not needing a rental car during your stay. We even received a tour of the University that was outstanding. We will be staying again on our next visit.

I was very impressed by the friendliness and competence of all the staff we dealt with. The rates were quite reasonable as well. The beds were very comfortable with 4 pillows per bed. I would definitely stay at the Inn at Virginia Tech again.

If you've ever stayed at a hotel not associated with a major brand, but tied to a university, you need to try this one. Very comfortable and affordable. Has everything you need from a high end hotel. Food was excellent. Area is beautiful.

My family enjoyed our stay at The Inn at VTech. Very nice front desk personnel - friendly and competent. The room was comfortable - clean with a lot of space. We had a room with two double beds. It's priced higher than some of the other hotels in town, but you can't beat its location if you are going to visit the university. We had a great experience here and would stay again.

I recently stayed at The Inn at Virginia Tech and was pleasantly surprised. The Inn is located right on the Virginia Tech campus and is a nice, affordable, full service hotel with a very friendly staff. The rooms were clean and comfortable.

The first night we were there we ate in the restaurant at the Inn, Preston’s. The meal was just so-so. I think the restaurant is missing a big opportunity to better serve its customers; the restaurant presents itself as an upscale, white tablecloth, full service restaurant, however, that is really not what is needed on a college campus. They would do better to tone down their concept and offer more recognizable, affordable and enjoyable dinner choices. The current menu consists of items such as Shrimp Cocktail, Rainbow Trout Crustini, Roasted Rack of Lamb, Buffalo Burgers, Scallops and Salmon. No burgers, chicken sandwiches, dinner salads, or pasta. When we were there the restaurant patrons were mostly families with children (all ages) and what appeared to be business travelers. If we travel back to the area I would gladly stay at the Inn – but would eat elsewhere.

Dear Qwerty:

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments about your recent stay at The Inn at Virginia Tech. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the cuisine in Preston's Restaurant. We do offer a lighter fare in the more casual atmosphere of the Continental Divide.

I hope you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again when your travels bring you back to Blacksburg.
