The front desk attendant Shannon was very helpful to me. He took the time to make sure I had all my stuff and called me right away when it arrived. I had a problem with the airport finding my things. I would definately come back here in the future. Rooms and service of other hotel staff was great. Breakfast was really good. Everything went smooth. I havent had this kind of experiance in a while.

I have stayed at this hotel consistently since it opened in the spring for business purposes averaging 10 or more nights per month. I have consistently received excellent customer service, fast check in, and a friendly welcome each time. I was baffled by a few of the negative reviews I have read here because I have spent over 100 nights at this hotel since its opening in April of 2009 and have never experienced incorrect billing or a rude manager. In fact, the service I have received has been so consistent and excellent the majority of business travellers for my company now stay at this hotel. For the price, the service can't be beat! We all experience an occasional bad hotel, restaurant, etc. That is to be expected. But after 100 nights to have not experienced it one time, that is exceptional.

After a night of 12 inches of snow, stranded on I-81 for 10 hours, being evacuated by the national gaurd and unable to arrive at the hotel to check in, dead cell phone, I was still charged for the room even though I've never even seen the place.

I originally booked the room thru Expedia.com, and then my credit card was not just charged through Expedia but also the hotel separately. After numerous phone calls back to the Holiday Inn Express in Salem, VA, who assured us that this would be resolved once the Manager was available, our latest phone call to Janice Windger was unprofessional, rude, and refused to give us a phone number or name for a District Manager.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Nice queen size beds, spacious room; however, the curtains were not black-out, so if parking lot lights disturb you, this is a problem. Also, when we arrived, the heat was not working - the front desk guy knew the right combination for it, so it was quickly resolved. Breakfast was lovely and in a spacious dining area. Fabulous view of the mountains from the room.

I was travelling with my daughter in August 2009 when we found this hotel while looking at colleges. When we returned to the area to look at Roanoke College again, we were very excited to stay at this property a second time. The view from the hotel is everything to love about the Roanoke valley. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and rooms are clean. The hotel is new, but maintenence seems to be kept up so far. The outdoor pool was very nice and quiet in the summer. The continental breakfast is excellent- the best of all the hotels in our college search. The beds are very comfortable and the decor is absolutely beautiful. Definitely the nicest hotel in the area and within minutes of the college.

I was very pleased with my stay. This hotel is located a little out of town but still very easy to get to Main St and the dining options around. The decor was nice and classic. Bedding was great. Breakfast was nice as well. I would have liked to have another option in the workout room instead of just bike & treadmill. Clean & quiet. Great stay!!
