“Nice Hotel to stay but a bit expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Stayed here several times but this latest time was for Thanksgiving Day. Room was comfortable and roomy. The shower was a bit tricky in regulating the tempature. It was either boiling hot or cold. Other than that, the room was nice. Went to breakfast in the morning (unfortunately this hotel takes care of a lot of sports teams visiting Va. Tech, During this stay we had two girl sports teams from different Universities) and the breakfast area looked like a cyclone hit the area. We got down there at 9AM which was an hour prior to the breakfast being over. We found seating okay and we went to get our breakfast. When we sat down we couldn't find silverware and asked the attendant. She said she would get us some "when she finished cleaning tables". That is an unacceptable response since our meal was getting cold. Finally after asking again, she went around to other table that had dirty dishes and took silverware that was "apparently" clean from other tables to bring us silverware. I wasn't sure if they were clean or not. The other staff at the hotel were fantastic, thus is the reason I gave my rating of excellent. I also forgot some toletries and the hotel was great at finding what I needed.

Room Tip: Doesn't matter where you select your room. All are equally nice. We were on the fourth floor.

Stayed here while taking our daughter on a visit to Virginia Tech. If she ends up going to school here this will definitely be our hotel of choice. Our room was quiet and well-appointed with comfortable mattresses. The indoor pool/spa was a nice plus. The breakfast buffet was convenient, tasty and a good value. All the staff we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful.

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...
