Make no mistake, this is a family-run budget motel. Don't go unless you are comfortable in a budget motel. That being said, it's a great value. Rooms are clean, linens are clean, beds are comfortable, free wi-fi, complimentary coffee in the morning and the location is fantastic. Additionally, most rooms (all?) have micro-wave and good mini-fridge, which is a wonderful perk. And, the owners could not be more helpful and friendly. Yes, sometimes they are not at the front desk and you have to ring a bell for assistance, and sometimes you feel like you have just interrupted their dinner. But, this is part of the budget experience, and they couldn't be more accommodating.
Yes, other reviews are correct; some of the rooms are a little more tired than others. I get the feeling that the owners are renovating a few rooms at a time, but I have never felt that my room wasn't clean. And yes, some rooms have a slight stale smell that is also consistent with many budget hotels.
All that being said, this is a terrific place to stay. We always try to get in there, but they are often full when there are Virginia Tech events.
