“Best Night's Sleep in Blacksburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012

We have visited Blacksburg many times for football games or other school events, but have just recently discovered the Main Street Inn. The rooms were spacious, clean and quiet and the staff was friendly and helpful. The best thing about it is the location, we could walk to any store or restaurant downtown, very helpful when parking is an issue. If only we could get reservations for this coming graduation weekend!

Room Tip: All of their rooms are suites, however some of the suites are larger than others, I'm sure recep...

Great place to stay. If you are in Blacksburg it is most likely to visit Virginia Tech. This is a great place to stay within easy walking distance to VT (both academic spaces and sports complexes) and right in the middle of Blacksburg main street. The rooms are very nice, roomy and comfortable. My first choice on my twice a year trip Blacksburg. Parking is handy (although a bit tight to get in and out of) and even on football weekends there is easily accessible spaces (although you may have to park in the municipal lot across the street but still covered in the cost of the room). Several restaurants within walking distance as well (be sure to try Gillies for breakfast. about 4 blocks away on College Avenue).

Very nice lobby and staff. Lobby had little items always set out to drink and eat. Provided complimentary rain poncho's when raining (and they were heavy duty, not just throw-away). Location is convenient to VT campus, restaurants, shopping, and grocery store. Parking is limited at hotel, but they provide free parking right across the street which is fine. Part of this is due to when the hotel was built - not much property. The rooms nicely furnished with a sitting area as well as a smaller bedroom. Inbetween in the bathroom and spacious and clean, nice towels, soaps, shampoo, conditioner and skin cream. Lighting is fine throughout and the sitting area has a wet bar, small refridge, and microwave. View out window on second floor is looking at a roof of a pizzaria, but didn't matter to us. Overall, room worked out great.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the rooms on the southeast side. You will be viewing a pizzaria roof.

We stayed here (from Australia) while visiting my son at Virginia Tech. Its a great hotel, with very helpful staff, comfy warm beds and situated right in the middle of Blacksburg. Its walking distance from everything, in this pretty, college town in rural Virginia, a beautiful part of the world. With no restaurant breakfast is available in the form of Granola bars and coffee, which is fine, and there are plenty of cafes close by. The rooms are smallish, but well appointed, and have everything you need.

We have stayed here many times for VT basketball games. Hotel is very convenient to VT and for downtown activities. Outside nightlife can sometimes be noisy so not the best if you are a light sleeper. Rooms are nice with granite in the bathrooms and two flat screen tvs - although they are very small. They have a nice separation between a small sitting area, the bathroom and then the sleeping/bed area. We stayed here for my son's graduation from VT in December, and they kept making us move our vehicle (SUV) to a parking garage across the street - even though there was plenty of parking. They were very rude about it, so even though we like the convenience and have had good experiences in the past, for the prices they charge and the rudeness of the staff, I doubt we will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter.

Location is good, but...

Bad service-the lady checking us in was very strange and not friendly at all, they never said welcome back or Helped us with our bags.

Awful rooms- it looked to be a 15 inch flat screen on the wall, and the room was very very very small and had an awkward layout. It smelled of cigarette smoke.

Bad parking situation- there are only a few spaces on property, otherwise you have to park in a garage a block away, this was unappealing

No amenities- no pool, no restaurant, no breakfast to speak of

High prices- other places are much better and less expensive like the hilton Garden inn or inn at Virginia tech

We stayed during Christmas break so the town was quiet and so was the hotel. The rooms are small but have everything you need- including a small sitting room with a flat screen TV, sofa and small sink/wet bar. The beads and pillows are very comfortable. The front desk employee was very helpful and the lobby is very nice. There is also a small covered parking garage for guests.

Room Tip: ask for a room in the back of the hotel to avoid the street noise.
