We were doing a campus visit and needed a hotel close to campus. This Holiday Inn Express hit the mark. It was recently renovated so the appearance was crisp and clean. The rooms were spacious. We had a "studio" room which was perfect for our family of four. Breakfast was typical for this class of hotel but the quality was...

I booked a room in this hotel through a third party. When checking in, the front desk acknowledged my advanced payment through the third party. A few weeks later after my stay, while reviewing my credit card statement, I discovered the hotel tried to charge me again for the same stay. I called but was told they had no record...

Just all around not a good hotel. The rooms are outdated, and I was very unimpressed with housekeeping. They didn't clean my room (take out the trash, wipe surfaces, etc) and half-hazardly made the bed without changing the sheets. The front desk staff is always friendly though even though one time my card was charged after my stay was already...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel and we noticed right away that the hotel was going through a renovation when we arrived. We found out from the man at the front desk that it had only been a Holiday Inn for about a year. Though there was visible work happening, everything was clean and what was done looked...

I was attending a meeting at Virginia tech - Holiday inn express is a very decent hotel near virginia tech. the rooms were neat and clean, and it seemed it was relatively a new facility. The only drawback is that the fast food and restaurants are at a 15 minutes walk.

Pleasant staff coupled with nice clean room made for a good visit in Blacksburg. Very close to VT and downtown. Would definitely recommend to others. The pool was nice and the breakfast offered more than a muffin and coffee.

Very nice hotel in a quaint college town. We didn't realize we were 10 miles off I85S. We would have rather stayed closer to the interstate in order to save some time traveling. We would probably stay another time but not when VT is in session. The town would be too crowded for us just passing thru. Breakfast was decent...

We stay at this hotel every time we visit Blacksburg --around 8 or 9 times per year. For the most part the furnishings are very comfortable and fairly new, although the bathrooms are a bit dated. There is plenty of room to spread out with a small sitting area with pull-out sofa, club chair, desk and a wet bar with...

Myself, my husband and two teens came down for one night. We came for Tech's open house and arrived relatively late Friday night.

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....
