“I wish all hotels were this nice.”
Reviewed August 2, 2010

Stayed here three times in the last month. While it is not the Ritz, it is very adequate. Rooms are large, carpet in good condition, shower very nice. Pillows are rather small but most are in hotels. Will stay here when in the area. Great buy!

I've stayed at this property numerous times, a few flaws, but overall I always have a good stay here. 2 stories, no elevator. Convenient parking. Staff has always been friendly and helpful. Typical Sleep Inn rooms and layout. Comfortable bed and pillows, nice work desk.
Wi-Fi works well, reasonable rates. Only drawbacks are snack machines not stocked, and the breakfast is very simple, donuts, bagels, cereal, fruit, coffee, juice. Computer and printer in lobby. Mexican restaurant next door and a KFC, both easy to walk to. Several convenience stores close by, shopping mall and other restaurants right down the street. For the money, it's the best value I've found in this type of hotel when doing business in Roanoke.

Hotel was fine. There was no candy in the vending machines so I had to leave to get a sugar fix.

The hotel is nice, conveniently located near the 581 and just in front of Tanglewood mall. Plenty of restaurants around, fast access to downtown though the 581, near Mill Mountain and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The hotel is clean, ample rooms, big comfortable bed, great wireless Internet access (fast and working all the time), comfortable desk. I don't know how good the TV cable service is, I turned it on a couple times and it seems basic. TV series, news, local channels, etc. Nothing looked like premium, no new movies, no specials. There are coffee machines in the rooms but you can get coffee already made at any time. The windows are locked, there's an air conditioning system (hot, cold or fan only) with local controls. I like fresh air from an open window but it's not a big deal.
Lights are fine although it would be better to have less options for diffuse lights (entrance, bathroom area, bed, desk) and a more focused light over the desk. I ended up working over the bed with the bedside lights.

Bathrooms are fine but a little too small for my taste. They're the typical compartment for toilet and shower capsule with the sink/mirror outside. The rooms have hair dryer and iron and ironing board, three things that I don't use so I can't comment.

The whole hotel is neat and clean, however I found a box of gum left behind by a previous traveler. It shows that they're not good at details. The box had 35 cts and a couple gum pills left. I took the coins, so I can't really complain about that.

Breakfast is limited in variety. Coffee, decaf, tea, orange and cranberry juice, two choices of cereal (one is the awful Froot-Loops that tastes like Play-doh) and bagels with butter, Philadelphia and jam. There are ice and soda machines too but that's all.

Employees are friendly and helpful but, being mostly a self service hotel, you won't see much of them. You can see their work though, the hotel runs like clockwork. Plain and simple clock but working.

Overall, the hotel is fine but at that price range I'm sure you can get the same plus a room fridge and full continental and American breakfast.

Pet friendly hotels that are clean are pretty hard to come by, so I was pleasantly surprised that this Sleep Inn was so nice. I am a hotel snob, having status at several high-end chains for my job, so I was worried about Sleep Inn. I shouldn't have been! The hotel was clean in general, as was the room.
We stayed in a suite with two queens in the bedroom and a pull out sofa in the living room. Plenty of space for our family of four (and two small dogs). The suite had a bath and a half. Oh, and there were tons of fluffy pillows.
Wireless internet worked fine for my husband's laptop but wouldn't work for my iPod Touch.
Breakfast was okay ... bagels, cereal, pastries, oatmeal packets, apples, coffee and juice.
If you are looking for a decent space at a reasonable price, especially if you are traveling with pets, this is a great place to stay.

We were very pleased with our stay in this Sleep Inn. The room was large, very clean and fresh. The staff was courteous, helpful, and efficient. We will definitely stay here the next time we pass this way.

The Sleep Inn Tanglewood is just built cheaply. I could hear the TV in the next room loud and clear, and it was VERY noisy when the person in the room above me walked around. The whole building shook a little whenever anyone walked down the hallway.

Also, the wireless internet access was inconsistent. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. That may have been a temporary problem, but I was there for four nights and it didn't improve.

  • Liked — The room was clean and the service was good.
  • Disliked — The building was built cheaply and the noise was awful.
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't stay here.
