Decent hotel. Large rooms (suites only). Tiny bathroom with shower in bathtub. Small closet space for a large suite. Large windows but can not be opened which I personally hate because I like to let in fresh air. Air-conditioning is not central. There is a loud AC unit in the room which means no chance of getting fresh air at... More

Stayed 5/3 on a 5K point reward night. Hotel is a bit off the main highway in a serene setting. Exterior is nicely maintained. We had no problem parking. The lobby is especially nice and staff are efficient and friendly. Two elevators available. Everything in lobby and room is clean and well maintained. We found a stinkbug on the wall... More

This is a pretty new facility that is extremely convenient if you're heading to VA Tech. Nice, friendly staff. Large, roomy suite, but bathroom a little on the small side. Love that they have separated the vanity area from the bathroom. Easy now for one person to be utilizing the vanity area, while another is in the shower. Keeps vanity... More

This hotel is convenient, comfortable, secure, and very quiet. Front desk staff was very friendly and welcoming. I will definitely return here when I am in the area. A great place to relax or work after being on the road for business.

Clean and very convenient to Virginia Tech. Pleasant front desk staff. Large, comfortable suite but with a teeny toilet/shower area with very dim lighting. Did not check out all the amenities as we were just passing through.

Our family spent one night at the hotel while visiting Virginia Tech. The hotel was right outside of the Virginia Tech campus. It was very convenient location for us. There was no restaurants within walking distant. But it was not far from the main street and other shopping/restaurant areas. The room was very clean, with a sofa bed and two... More

The rate was very good and included free breakfast. I like the suites as you get a small kitchen area and living room so don't feel like you are in a hotel room for a week. This was convenient to VT but not right on campus- a 5 min drive- shopping and food all conveniently located. Nice heated indoor pool... More

Hotel was very nice - seemed pretty new. Convenient to VA Tech (about 2 minutes away). Very nice staff, lobby and rooms - only drawback was 2 double beds versus having 2 queen size. Room was large and clean. Breakfast was good and plentiful.
