Myself, my husband and two teens came down for one night. We came for Tech's open house and arrived relatively late Friday night. We were not the only ones...Unfortunately the room that we had reserved which was a double with a pull out was no longer available (my fault I should have called earlier to hold the room as we...

My family stayed here for one night. Check in went smoothly. I was on the third floor. My room was very clean and well appointed. I didn't use the heat or AC as the room was very comfortable. The bed was soooo comfortable I slept all night. Plus it was very quiet. I could see the mountains from my window....

Booked a night during a trip to VT for recruiting events. Very nice room and overall hotel. As expected the hotel delivered on their values. I'll book this location each time to the area. Room was clean, large, and well taken care of. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We've stayed here three times now on various trips to Virginia Tech. The hotel is clean, updated, and very nice. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast area is large and inviting. The food is fine - a standard included breakfast. The location is convenient and close to campus. But what really sets the hotel apart is the service....

Came to visit Virginia Tech for fall open house weekend and Engineering school interest session. Two nights at hotel in a "suite" with two queen beds and pullout sofa bed. Not cheap for Saturday night but better for the second night. The accommodations are typical for a Holiday Inn. Nothing special. Room clean but the bathroom not great, very small....

We do not have children at Virginia Tech. However we wanted to see the school and discovered this hotel is in a perfect location both for touring the school and for gaining access to the various nearby highways. The hotel has comfortable rooms and helpful staff.

We highly recommend this hotel. A newly acquired property by Holiday Inn, the new owners have done a complete overhaul (including the equipment in the gym). The beds are comfortable with 'soft' and 'hard' pillows; the suites are spacious allowing a family space to spread out; the hot breakfast options are great; and Juan, who was managing the breakfast buffet,...

Had a great stay here- the staff was courteous, the hotel is very up to date and clean, and was very quiet. For people who complain about price, shop around, it's very competitive for a college town that makes its money off visitors. I highly recommend this place, great location as well.

We've stayed here since it first opened under another name. Holiday Inn Express must be doing something right, because the hotel seems much busier than it used to be. A complimentary breakfast is available and it's not bad...scrambled eggs, turkey and pork sausages, cereals, oatmeal, toast/breads and sweet rolls. Juices, coffee, etc... Rooms are generous in size, in addition to...
