N0t much else to say, it is difficult to get a cab in Blacksburg so if you are going out for the night have a DD or be prepared to wait for a cab.

I stayed in a "non-smoking" room because I don't smoke and react very badly to it. By morning the room had filled with smoke, from an adjacent room I assume. The whole building smells disgusting, and by the time I left in the morning, so did I. All my llugage and its contents reaked like smoke when I left, so I now I'm going to smell like smoke for the rest of my trip. This should NOT be advertised as non-smoking when it's so ridiculously smoky. Yuck!

Super 8 Christiansburg is a clean and convenient place to stay while on the road traveling. The front desk people are very nice. The room was clean enough, as were the beds and linens. The only problem that I had was the people staying in the hotel making noise and coming in very late (1:30). We stayed on the first floor and the ceiling and walls were very thin. Otherwise, it was fine. If you plan on eating the continental breakfast, you must go early. Everything was gone at 9:00 a.m.

Great location for walkable distance to big stores (Walmart, bestbuy), fast food/dinning. Staff is very accommodating with pets and change of schedule. Great for family with pet. Quality of room is okay as the motel is relatively aged. The room are kept clean but may overshadowed by aging equipment.

Great for short 1-2 days stay if not too picky.

We have been regular customers here for several years, because of family commitments. This is at 55 Laurel Street, essentially at Rt. 460 across from Wal-Mart, close by the mall.
The rooms have always been clean. There is an off-screen TV guide to help quickly find one's way through the local line-up.
The staff is competent, and cordial beyond the call of duty as witnessed by my accidently blurting out 'Wahoo' during some end of stay small talk, and they didn't hardly even flinch. They have always accommodated our reservation requests, and they have always had some little something available for us to come get at the desk in case we needed it for the room.
We have never bothered with the very basic complimentary breakfast. We have usually found coffee in the large thermos dispensers into the evening.
One can walk to Wendy's, a deli, and some semi-fast pasta place outlet. The Rt. 460 corridor is full of eateries. IHOP is about a four minute drive to get across the big intersection.

  • Liked — It is a reliable, comfortable place to stay while doing things in the area.

This was the third of three budget hotels we booked in a Delaware - Virginia tour. This is the Super 8 in Christiansburg/Blacksburg on Laurel street - NOT the one in Christiansburg which looks like a tudor style building. So the reviewer who commented on the "log cabin" charm likely had the wrong place in mind when she (and apparently others) lambasted this hotel.

On the contrary, not only was this place really clean, they had many upgrades at a much cheaper rate than any of our other hotel stays. These included microwaves & refrigerators in the room as well as complimentary laundry bags, on site laundry facilities, shampoos and soaps, great tv, clean large bathrooms, comfortable beds with great fluffy pillows. They provided coffee makers in the rooms in addition to a full continental breakfast in the morning which included hot oatmeal, cold cereal, fruit, English muffins, bagels, cream cheese, jam spreads, juice, coffee, tea, blueberry muffins, all type of coffee sweeteners, half and half, skim milk. There were no diesel trucks or parking for any in the middle of the motel as one reviewer wrote.

I made the mistake and went to the other Super 8 (the "log cabinney" styled one) as it's the first one you see when you come off the highway and they just handed me preprinted directions to the correct one on Laurel street when we couldn't find my booking- which was the one I had actually booked.

  • Liked — What you get exceeds the budget price. AND it's CLEAN!
  • Disliked — Late check in (they wanted to make sure everything was clean - probably because of the wrong reviews)

The motel was very very clean, which was about all we needed. We arrived after 9 pm and left at 7:30 am so basically just slept. The breakfast was just dry cereal, English muffin or sweet roll. The coffee both in the room and at breakfast was very weak. Yuck. The staff were very friendly both when I called for info and when we arrived and left. We suggest you ask for a room away from the road; we were one room in from the road and it was a bit noisy when a large truck went by.
The wireless internet worked like a charm!
