“Very nice accommodations & convenient to campus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Stayed at The Inn at Virginia Tech for the first time this weekend and was very impressed. I am a VT alum and have stayed in a number of area hotels. This will now be my top choice. My daughter was participating in an event on the Virginia Tech campus and we got a great rate on the room. You can't beat the convenience - the hotel is right on campus and offers free shuttle service wherever you want to go. It is also very close to restaurants & retail. Our room was nicely appointed and comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet was very good. I took the opportunity to explore the Skelton Conference Center and the facilities are very impressive - better than many hotel facilities where I've attended or hosted corporate events. Two comments - we could only run wifi on one device at a time in the room so my daughter and I had to take turns checking email, etc. on our phones, and it would have been nice to have a mini refrigerator (there was certainly room for one).

We visited the campus for a Vet Med school interview for my daughter. The Inn staff were wonderful, accommodating our varied, many needs during this stressful visit. The hotel was very clean, food was excellent and staff friendly. This is a great place to stay!

I was visiting my campus after 10 years so just seemed right that this was the place to stay. The place is right at the entrance to the University from the Prices Fork SIde, A good property although there are no signs on the road. The place is clean, the check in staff is superfriendly. For some reason the rooms they gave us were at the very end, which I could not understand why when it did appear that most of it was vacant.
We arrived on a Sunday, the restaurant on property was closed so we ended in the downtown to eat something. The place was decorated beautifully and my son had a whale of a time seeing the decoration and the train track that they had set up for the holiday. Overall comfortable stay. The rooms were ok and large enough although apart from a couple of VT literature there was nothing that would set them apart from the normal hotel rooms.

Beautiful facility in a great location on campus. If you are visiting Virginia Tech this is the place to stay. The check-in was fast and the staff is extremely friendly. It's a relatively new facility and it matches the stone decor of the rest of the campus. We'll be staying there again

We stay at the Inn often. A very guest friendly place, the Inn is squeaky clean with great food service on site or in town and with excellent beds for a good night sleep. It is a fabulous home base for golf at local courses, tons of ACC sports a short walk from the Inn, hiking and birding trails, American history excursions, and around the corner from the new-internationally acclaimed Arts Center for performing and studio arts. Read the other reviews -- I agree with them.

This Inn is on campus, but plenty of open space and lots of parking. The stone structure and architecture and rolling hills in town almost give it a feel of staying at a castle in Europe. Check in was super friendly - assume it to be local students majoring in Hotel management. Room was nice and clean, nice view out back of hotel, not onto parking lot. Close to lots of amenities.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the parking lot, a bit better view.

We stayed one night at The Inn at Virginia Tech for an Open House the following day. The place is beautiful! Our room had two double size beds, so, kind of small for a family of four, the room was clean, up to date, and all around nice. The location to Virginia Tech is second to none, as you are right on the campus!! We did not eat at the hotel, although it looked like there were plenty of guest that did. We ate at Poor Billy's in town. (nice food, a little pricey, but very good portions). Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting VA Tech. They even have a shuttle to take you over to the campus proper, we chose to walk because it was such a nice day. The hotel is also located right across the street from a good size shopping area which includes a supermarket and a Panera Bread. (i.e. walking distance for a bottle of wine!). Nice over all place. There was a gym, although we did not get to use it.

Room Tip: ask for something bigger than two double beds if you have a family of 4.
