My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel and we noticed right away that the hotel was going through a renovation when we arrived. We found out from the man at the front desk that it had only been a Holiday Inn for about a year. Though there was visible work happening, everything was clean and what was done looked...

I was attending a meeting at Virginia tech - Holiday inn express is a very decent hotel near virginia tech. the rooms were neat and clean, and it seemed it was relatively a new facility. The only drawback is that the fast food and restaurants are at a 15 minutes walk.

Pleasant staff coupled with nice clean room made for a good visit in Blacksburg. Very close to VT and downtown. Would definitely recommend to others. The pool was nice and the breakfast offered more than a muffin and coffee.

Very nice hotel in a quaint college town. We didn't realize we were 10 miles off I85S. We would have rather stayed closer to the interstate in order to save some time traveling. We would probably stay another time but not when VT is in session. The town would be too crowded for us just passing thru. Breakfast was decent...

We stay at this hotel every time we visit Blacksburg --around 8 or 9 times per year. For the most part the furnishings are very comfortable and fairly new, although the bathrooms are a bit dated. There is plenty of room to spread out with a small sitting area with pull-out sofa, club chair, desk and a wet bar with...

Myself, my husband and two teens came down for one night. We came for Tech's open house and arrived relatively late Friday night. We were not the only ones...Unfortunately the room that we had reserved which was a double with a pull out was no longer available (my fault I should have called earlier to hold the room as we...

My family stayed here for one night. Check in went smoothly. I was on the third floor. My room was very clean and well appointed. I didn't use the heat or AC as the room was very comfortable. The bed was soooo comfortable I slept all night. Plus it was very quiet. I could see the mountains from my window....

Booked a night during a trip to VT for recruiting events. Very nice room and overall hotel. As expected the hotel delivered on their values. I'll book this location each time to the area. Room was clean, large, and well taken care of. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We've stayed here three times now on various trips to Virginia Tech. The hotel is clean, updated, and very nice. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast area is large and inviting. The food is fine - a standard included breakfast. The location is convenient and close to campus. But what really sets the hotel apart is the service....

Came to visit Virginia Tech for fall open house weekend and Engineering school interest session. Two nights at hotel in a "suite" with two queen beds and pullout sofa bed. Not cheap for Saturday night but better for the second night. The accommodations are typical for a Holiday Inn. Nothing special. Room clean but the bathroom not great, very small....
