“Fabulous find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

Looked for comfortable, found FABULOUS!!! Immaculately clean, conveniently located and lovingly cared for, the Clay Corner Inn is a great getaway. The owners and innkeepers, Rick and Nicky, made us totally at home. They even called us in advance to let us know alternate routes as roads were blocked due to holiday celebrations on Main Street. Breakfast was amazing with many homemade goodies--all healthful and delicous (*****). They gave us great information about local attractions and restaurants. Wish we had more time to enjoy the area and the special treats the Inn has to offer. Pet friendly in certain rooms--we travel with our dog (he was also very happy at the Inn and the nearby trail and park).

This is an excellent place to stay in the best tradition of B&Bs where you almost become part of the family. This was a business trip so I cannot comment on the price of the rooms which I do not know. It is located next to the Virginia Tech Campus. The room has no microwave, coffee machine etc. but you are allowed to use the kitchen facilities of the house in which you are staying so there is no problem with that (there are several separate houses with 4 rooms in each I believe). I wish I could stay there if I'm back in the area.

I highly recommend staying in the Clay Corner Inn.

This was our second time staying at this hidden jewel ! My husband and I will never stay any where else when we visit our 2 sons at Va. Tech. It is quaint, homey, sparkling clean, blocks from campus with fabulous food and the sweetest owners you'll ever meet!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great but if you have trouble with stairs choose one on the bottom floor.

Hi and thank you for your kind review. It was great seeing you more settled in with your boys being away at college and it's great having you stay with us. We really enjoy your visits, maybe we could break away and have dinner next time you are down here... see you soon and take care.

We stayed at the Clay Corner Inn while visiting our son at Virginia Tech. The accommodations were first rate, the bed was very comfortable and our hosts were warm and charming. The breakfast was fabulous both days we were there. It is easy walking distance to town and campus. We would love to come back again sometime!

Enjoyed a one-night stay at Clay Corner Inn with friends on our way to NC. Nicky & Rick (and pups Callie & Mokie) couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Our first floor suites were wonderful - king-size beds with a roomy sitting room attached with a TV (one in the bedroom also) - and a communal, fully-equipped kitchen and living area right outside our bedroom. There's a lovely deck area for having breakfast outside, as well as a little "Zen" area for quiet time. A pool is incorporated into this peaceful area. A delicious breakfast in the main house completed the stay. Have already started spreading the word about this lovely B & B and would stay here again if visiting the area.

Room Tip: First-floor suites are a comfortable, good value if you want to spread out a little. Children could...

No better place to stay in Blacksburg! We love staying here for our Virginia Tech weekends. We love meeting our old friends here. We were there on the first weekend Rick and Nicky took over as owners last September. They have made some great changes to the place. It hasn't looked better. It is so much more homey with them in charge. We had a great tailgating party right at the B&B. Rick was the real "Master of the Grill". Breakfasts were awesome!
Clay Corner Inn is with-in walking distance to downtown and to the football field/school.
Can't wait until next year!

We only stay one nite but it was very pleasant and cozy. Location is great and it was well worth the money. The room is large and roomy, it was nice to have a private bathroom in the room. We plan on staying here again in the future.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are themed, so if you have a preference book early.
