Very nice location, friendly staff and an excellent breakfast. Rooms are spacious and only problem was noice from outside as there was some renovation going on. Front area is small but clean, the staff was very helpful. Breakfast area is also small but the food was very good. The wifi was very slow and I used the free xfinity.

What an awesome staff. I have been here for several weeks and have been overwhelmed by the kind and courteous staff. I can't remember all of their names but Margie and Sandra went above and beyond what one normally expects. Great hotel. Will definitely be back soon. Hopefully for a wedding in the near future.

Traveled to Blacksburg on a last minute college visit trip. Have stayed in Holiday Inn Express hotels in other areas before was generally happy. My visit to this property exceeded expectations. From our arrival after 10 PM after a four hour drive through a monsoon, we were greeted warmly by Allen. His smile and positive attitude made us feel welcome....

This place is a 10 out of 10. I was coming to the area for a show in Pearisburg and this hotel was perfectly situated for a short commute to the venue. The front desk attendant was very helpful and friendly—at one point, I had to stop at the front desk pretty late at night for extra towels and soap...

This hotel is ideally located in Blacksburg on the Virginia Tech campus surrounding by tons of conveniences—gas stations, restaurants, shops, and pharmacies. The hotel is currently undergoing a renovation and the upgrades looks great. My friend and I stayed in a suite room which had a table and chairs (for dining), a desk, a sofa and chair, a microwave and...

Comfortable room. Decent free breakfast. Wi fi spotty everywhere but lobby, very strong there. Bathroom so small you need to stand in the tub to open or close the door. Hotel is at bottom of steap hill. Would not stay here during snowy weather. If you want to read in the room bring your own light bulbs.

I checked in around 11pm, and then left to go help my son clean out his apartment - we had to drop off the keys by 9am and then head home. When I got back to my room at 2am, I was exhausted. I was hoping to get a good 8 hours of sleep in before my 5 hour drive...

Made a last minute booking at this hotel to visit VT. Location is VERY close to campus. Hotel was nice. Excellent front desk staff and room was pleasant. I appreciate a room that has a sitting area aside from the bed and desk and this one does. Keurig coffee maker and small fridge in the room is nice as well....
