We are a Virginia Tech family (2 kids there) from northern Virginia who has made many trips down to Blacksburg over the past few years. Being budget-conscious (2 kids at college!), we long ago settled on the Red Carpet Inn. This is a family-run motel so you get the friendly personal touch. The rooms are basic, but clean and well...

My wife and I needed a room for one night after taking our son back to VT. We chose this property based on previous positive reviews. We were not disappointed. Even though it is an older property, the room we stayed in has been well-maintained. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. Nothing looked worn and there were no... More

The Red Carpet Inn is independently owned & operated. Located in a central spot in West Virginia not too far from campus & the restaurants, bars & shops yet far enough that you aren't a top of everyone. The Owners work very hard & are very nice. It was quaint & quite. We did not spend much time there as... More

Owners are always accomodating and very friendly. The rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable. Convenient location on main street in Blacksburg to visit my student attending VA Tech. It is Convenient to have a fridge and microwave in every room.

Four of us stayed during my son's VT orientation. Much less expensive than other local hotels. Looks somewhat run down from the outside, old on the inside too but very clean. A/C and free wifi worked well. Owners are very attentive and quickly brought us requested items (eg blowdryer). Small fridge and microwave also helps save money during stay. Quite... More

When I say this one is a sleeper I mean that in a good way. From the outside this motel looks run down, but the rooms are actually very clean. The pool area is being redone and the management was very friendly. This hotel is not the luxury resort of your dreams, but it is the lowest cost hotel within... More

It could be regular 2~3-star rated place. However the professionalism and friendliness of the management with cleanliness of this place is definitely more than the our biased expectation! I used this place time to time when I visit Blacksburg and I have never seen the staff members being not nice at all!

Just spent my first visit to Virginia Tech in the Red carpet, searched online and this one was the best price. Really liked the management help, when something is needed they tried their best to make it available. They received my online printed poster for the conference presentation couple of days before even checking in. Room was excellent except the... More

Visited with my wife. Beautiful location, right on Main Street. The room smelt a little moldy, and the air conditioning wasn't on so the first few minutes weren't pleasant, but wasn't a problem later on - maybe we just got used to the smell. Clean beds, linen and bathroom. Perfect for the price. Helpful management. Promptly provided an iron and... More

The manager was very welcoming and accommodating. Our room was clean and comfortable. It is conveniently located near the heart of the South Main retail and restaurant district. If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay in Blacksburg, this is it. The rooms are dated but ours had everything we needed including a refrigerator.
