“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We have stayed here twice and loved it. The people at the front desk were wonderful--very friendly and helpful. I love the rooms--they are so big and comfortable. It's not located right next to the university, but it's only a 5-10 minute drive away.

Nice, clean, quiet room.
Comfy bed and linens.
Seemed recently renovated.
Great happy hour.
Friendly front desk...just don't take the recommendation and eat at Bull and Bones...terrible. Should have known not to listen to the younger kid :)

While nothing in Blacksburg will meet the expectations of those accustomed to 4 and 5 star hotels, of which none exist within 25 miles, this Courtyard is the top selection for Blacksburg with proximity to Tech. The business traveler orientation of the Courtyard marque typically assures professional-quality service and does so here. Front desk staff are a ready and willing resource on all things Blacksburg. Better breakfast alternatives were nearby on Main Street.

Pros: professional, competent front desk staff, clean rooms, typical Courtyard familiar to the business traveler, easy drive to Lane Stadium when Airport Road

Cons: somewhat showing it's age, no much to look at through the windows, somewhat pricey for Blacksburg

No significant faults or flaws were experienced other than (1) an annoyingly loud floor squeak when walking by the wall at the foot corner of the king bed and (2) only two electrical on the desk.

Room Tip: Quieter side is opposite Main Street.

Stayed here for a football weekend. Dressed in opponent purple we found a very welcoming hotel staff dressed in VT t-shirts upon arrival who welcomed us to the Courtyard and also to Blacksburg. Garrick got us checked in and we had an extra nice room on the backside of the hotel with a small balcony. The mattress and pillows could have been firmer. We rested well each night. WiFi in our room was quick and respionsive. We found the same friendly "we're glad you're here" enthusiasm from all the staff we encountered. The complimemntary coffee, tea and fresh cookies in the lobby were a very special touch of the Courtyard staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the backside with a balcony. Ask for a room away from th ice and vending areas A...

Got a late start on an eight-hour drive and was looking for a place to stay about halfway to my destination. Got the last room in this very nice hotel, which was packed with Virginia Tech football fans. I can't say enough about the guy who checked me in. Was pleasantly surprised to find him still at the desk when I checked out. If you can be waited on by Garrick, you'll be well taken care off.

Room Tip: Breakfast is not complimentary, but it the buffet was only $5 the morning I ate there (regularly $8...

We stayed at the Courtyard our first night in town before moving to the "official hotel" for the wedding we were attending. I really like Courtyard's Marriott service, nice beds, roomy baths, good toiletries, and wireless that works! I wish the official hotel had been as well run!

I stayed here just one night for a business trip, arriving on a Sunday. Check In was efficient, friendly and helpful. It took me a little while to figure out what I thought of the lobby, but it is not updated to the Bistro look with the convenience of Starbucks or getting a light snack. It kind of looks and feels like a sitting area/dining area of an older assisted Living community! There a a bar area, but it is not open on Sunday night. My room was a king room with a balcony that overlooked a quite back road. If you are like to walk or jog, you would be able to do so on roads behind the property. One slight annoyance about the room was the air conditioner unit was right next to the desk, so when I was doing work, it was loud and cold. Bathroom had seen better days and the grout on the shower showed some mold. Location is convenient off the highway and there is a good selection of places to eat and shop in a "marketplace" about a couple miles from the hotel. House Keeping starts very early in the morning, I did not have my do not disturb sign on my door and they were knocking to come in at 7:30 am. Free coffee was available in the morning, but I did not even seek out what the breakfast options were as I had to get on the road. This is not the nicest Courtyard I have stayed in but it got the job done.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back of the hotel overlook a quiet back street which was pleasant at night, however del...

Dear 143143,

We appreciate your candid feedback and your post has been shared with our team members. Since our property opened in October 2007, the hotel was new when the Courtyard Bistro rennovations began. We have tentatively scheduled our rennovation to begin 4th quarter 2014.

We hope that you will visit again!
