“Great Value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

I stayed at the Inn at Virginia Tech when attending a teaching and learning conference hosted in the Skelton Conference Center. The facility is homey--a nice fireplace in the lobby lent a cheery air during a cold snap. The rooms are spacious, the work desk and internet connection helped in keeping up with work obligations, and the registration desk was helpful in indicating a number of options to fit in a morning run. I'd come back for a family trip!

I have had the opportunity to stay at the Virginia Tech Inn on several occasions. It is a wonderful hotel. I am a proud graduate of Virginia Tech. My daughter is a junior and my son graduated in May 2012. I would highly recommend the Virginia Tech Inn. It is like going back to a place where I have so many good memories of my time at Virginia Tech. It is convenient to anything on campus or in the town of Blacksburg. The staff is superb and very professional, courteous and friendly. I plan on staying many more times at the Inn and would encourage others to make the Inn their destination of choice in Blacksburg

We stayed at the Inn for the first time in February for a high school track meet and was very satisfied with our choice of hotel. The front desks clerks were extremely friendly and very helpful with directions as we were not familiar with Virginia Tech. I was even allowed to check in early, which we really appreciated. The room was very clean and the beds very comfortable. The room was extremely quiet despite the many high school students staying at the inn that weekend. The breakfast was excellent as was the service. I would definitely stay here again.

This was my first stay at the Inn. I have attended many functions there and always been pleased with the conference and restaurant facilities. Upon check in the front desk clerk was very nice and efficient. Upon arrival in the room I was surprised that the decor was so bland...gold and burgundy with very uncomfortable chairs. There was one bath towel in the bathroom but with a call to the front desk that issue was fixed in about 10 minutes. The lighting in the room and the bathroom was dim and the water pressure was low. The hvac unit was very loud and I could hear the guests in the room above or beside me when they used the bathroom.

The room was clean and the staff was great. The conference center is awesome and the food is good, if not a tad bit overpriced. Overall I will say this is an average hotel but I will stay here again if the need arises.

I have stayed at The Inn many times this past year. Each time I arrived, the front desk clerks have been very helpful and pleasant. The rooms are always clean and there is always plenty of towels in the bathrooms. I have used the shuttle service plenty of times, and the drivers have always gone the extra mile. Every employee I have come in contact with has gone above and beyond to help my family in which ever way they could. When we were visiting during the VT/UVA football game, they were packed in the lobby bar and the staff was overwhelmed, but they were pleasant and making the best of a crazy situation.

Had a good stay with great service. My room (Single King) was large with ample furnishings. My room was near the end of the hallway, which is much longer than most hotels. This is odd, but not a major inconvenience.

We stayed at this conference center/ hotel for a meeting. The rooms were nicely appointed, spacious, clean, and quiet.
There is a dining room and bar. We
opted to go to a local restaurant the management had suggested.
The magical decorations of Christmas were everywhere. A beautiful, cozy fireplaces adorned the entry lobby.
The exercise room/ pool area was wonderful . That is always a must for me. It was amply appointed with nice toiletries and large towels.
I would most definitely select this hotel to return to. Friendly staff. Very good location.
