Reviewed September 24, 2006

Chosen for it's convenient location right off I-81, this hotel was not worth the price. We paid $134 for a single Saturday night stay. The room smelled musty and a cloud of dust rose from the upholstered chair in the corner when a small case was dropped onto it. The walls and bathroom had some obvious and roughly done patches and repairs. The security latch for the door was barely hanging onto the wall and its screws were completely stripped. The room did have a hair dryer, iron and board, but no hangers. The bed was comfortable enough. The continental breakfast consisted of donuts, two cereals, apple juice, coffee and a warm, very watery OJ.

I'd done some research prior to reserving a hotel room and had read horror stories about a number of the surrounding competitors. The Econo Lodge, which is generally not my first choice, had been reviewed fairly well. I was able to get a good rate and they allowed our dog which was somewhat rare in Christiansburg. The room was generally clean and smelled fresh. During our stay we needed extra towels and to replace a remote that stopped working for no apparent reason. With each request, the front desk person (Jack) impressed me with his courtesy and quick response. Although I know that there are much fancier hotels in the area, I would strongly consider returning to this location because of the service and value.
