Everything was new and efficient. If it's not a new building, it recently had a big makeover. It seemed very well-run too. Very reasonably priced for what I got. Close to VA Tech. The only negative I would say is that the free hot and cold breakfast buffet was really more of a continental breakfast, which I found a bit...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

The Holiday Inn Express in Blacksburg Virginia is a great hotel with a gorgeous backdrop! It's setback in a lush wooded area that is still slightly minutes drive away from the college life. If you like to go for walks the area around the hotel will be perfect. My check-in was a breeze and both yesterday and today the staff...

Rooms were clean and well maintained. Dining area was crowded but they had tables set in a conference room so everyone had someplace to eat. Good selection. Friendly staff. Sofa bed was not very comfortable - next time I'd suggest just putting the sheet on the actual sofa and sleeping on that instead of unfolding the bed. Air conditioner was...

The Holiday Inn Express in Blacksburg, VA. is as good as it gets. The rooms were very spacious complete with a living room and pretty much a full kitchen. Also appreciated the sink and mirror not being in the actual bathroom. It's the little touches like that making getting ready easier and something I really love about a hotel room....

We were doing a campus visit and needed a hotel close to campus. This Holiday Inn Express hit the mark. It was recently renovated so the appearance was crisp and clean. The rooms were spacious. We had a "studio" room which was perfect for our family of four. Breakfast was typical for this class of hotel but the quality was...

I booked a room in this hotel through a third party. When checking in, the front desk acknowledged my advanced payment through the third party. A few weeks later after my stay, while reviewing my credit card statement, I discovered the hotel tried to charge me again for the same stay. I called but was told they had no record...

Just all around not a good hotel. The rooms are outdated, and I was very unimpressed with housekeeping. They didn't clean my room (take out the trash, wipe surfaces, etc) and half-hazardly made the bed without changing the sheets. The front desk staff is always friendly though even though one time my card was charged after my stay was already...

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.
