Why would you stay at a chain hotel when you can have the personal attention, best location, and fabulous gourmet breakfasts that come with Clay Corner Inn - all for the same price. We arrived early (prior to check in time) and were met with a smile, offered tea, coffee, access to the kitchen (an electric kettle and fresh milk!... More

Stayed at the Clay corner inn for daughter's VT orientation and it was wonderful. Great accommodations and delicious breakfast. Nice common areas both inside and out. Hosts are very flexible with late arrivals as well.

Clay Corner Inn is so convenient to both downtown Blacksburg and VPI. The breakfasts were wonderful. Everything was clean and fresh. The pool and grounds were lovely. The hosts were friendly and informative. Couldn't ask for a better Bed and Breakfast experience.

Our room was very hot when we arrived. Nikki explained it was too early to turn on the air conditioning. That was understandable but the window could have been opened & the ceiling fan turned on before we arrived. In any case, we made do. The owners offered us another fan when we prepared for bed but by that time,... More

Thank you very much for your understanding. I think what happened was we tried to appease some other guests who asked us to turn the air conditioning off due to the cold night the previous night. April is always a tricky month but you are absolutely correct and we definitely will implement opening the windows and having the fan on... More

I happened upon Clay Corner Inn by chance while looking to visit Virginia Tech. And what a gem I found! My son and I stayed two nights and enjoyed a hearty breakfast, cozy shared spaces and a great room! We will definitely stay here again.

This was ours second time staying at the Clay Corner Inn. Both times have been great. As a Hokie Alum, who used to live around the corner on Houston Street, I would continually walk past years ago and never know what a gem was hidden.

From the reviews we were expecting something a little nicer. The room was OK. Not as nice as our room at home. The owners were away, which was part of the attraction.Breakfast was good, but nothing special.

We have stayed at Clay Corner Inn multiple times during our visits to VT to spend time with our daughter. The innkeepers are extremely hospitable and the rooms are spacious and no detail is overlooked.
