We have stayed and many hotels in the Blacksburg area but this was our first time at the Main Street Inn. Because we failed to make a hotel reservation early for graduation, this was the only room available for the Thursday before the event. The hotel is very tastefully decorated and you can't find a much better location in downtown Blacksburg. Our reservations were in order and we checked in quickly. There is a small parking garage on the ground floor however we easily found parking. I believe we had a suite since there was a small living room. The room was nicely decorated and they left a Hokie glass filled with VT treats. The staff was very friendly, fast and helpful. Although we didn't use it, there is a beautiful lobby and relaxation area with TV, fireplace and newspapers. The biggest negative of this Inn are the beds. While ours was a king, it was VERY soft and we both slide toward the middle so it felt like you were climbing uphill all night. If you are a TV watcher, you will be amazed by the tiny 19" TV's. Never broke out the iPad to check for wifi, sorry. Because this was an "event weekend" our room rate was $260 plus taxes and such which sounds high but is in line with prices in B'burg for events. Under normal circumstances I would expect to pay in the $125-$150 range for such accomadations but we understand why they are higher so if cost is an issue for you, be prepared. I would like to say I would stay there again but that would only be in a pinch or if they replaced the beds.
